    I'm seriously pissed right now. I feel like I'm being shaved on free trials from multiple networks. I have absolute proof that people have purchased free trials under my affiliate link yet I'm not getting credited for the leads.

    Can someone please tell me if there is a time delay for the leads to register for free trial (just pay shipping) CPA offers?

    There is no "time delay" that I've ever heard of. Talk to your affiliate manager and let him know that you have proof. Tell him if it's not fixed you'll take your business elsewhere.

    They are ususally instant. Infact, nearly always instant.

    But don't worry, I feel your anger. I've had users that even have confirmation emails, and I myself - have filled them out as tests (unique, genuine info, new IP, etc), and they haven't been crediting.

    However, you gotta remember - free submits are well known for being shaved.

    Right, but everyone is paying at least the shipping and handling for each one of these. If there's no time delay, then I'm missing over 2k in commissions today because of shaving! :eek:

    Over 2000? Damn man how many conversions did you get today? If it was every single conversion then there is another problem.

    I strongly advise you to speak to your affiliate manager. If you were getting paid just fine yesterday, then it is something on their end that is messed up. I've never heard of that much when it comes to shaving.

    Delay depends on the network and usually not the advertiser. Assuming everyone has real time tracking, networks like Copeac and Hydra will go instantly but ones like CJ take up to 24 hours. If you have waited 24 hours talk to your AM.
