    Hi guys,

    Do most offers payout when people actually add their email address on the first page or after then they enter the physical address details?

    When I search the email submit offers, most say 1st page payout... but when I test they are not showing up in my accounts. I also sent 800 clicks and not one conversion.

    makes me think CPAs only pay out ont he 2nd page when people add in physical addresses, etc.

    Any thoughts?

    Craig

    *What CPA company are you using?
    *They don't convert, because you're filling them out.
    *How did you generate the traffic, was the audience interested in email submit offer?

    On Peerfly, they tell you WHEN it converts. Sometimes it says upon simple, first page email submit, and other time it says upon second page "short form" submit. There are also "long forms", zip submits, and mobile submits too--and they all tell you when they convert.

    If your network doesn't have this info easily available on the "offer info" page--like BlamAds--check with your affiliate manager!

    the offer probably converts when the network says it does, but you might be getting shaved or scrubbed because you have low quality traffic. maybe you should talk to your AM

    What constitutes as low quality traffic?

    Same ip, illegitimate info (zip code doesn't exist/email address as "asdlfkj@sl.com"/name is "Lasdlkfj Alsdkf")?

    when i said "low quality traffic" i meant your leads are not converting well for the advertisers on the back end.
    whether they are re-selling your leads or marketing their own products to them, i do not know, but your leads are not profitable enough for the advertisers to keep accepting your traffic. it's kind of like running an adwords campaign where you are paying $1 per click but only getting back $0.50 per click in the end.
