    Okay so basically, i've signed up to cupid and chosen one of the pay per registration offers with benaughty, I made 5 conversions yesterday (£10, first time i've ever made money online, so as you can imagine I was pretty happy with that). I log on today to see that all them conversions have been deleted and I actually didn't make a penny! Any idea why this is!? For today I'm currently at 3 conversions however after seeing all my money dissapearing from yesterday Im about to give up :(.

    You should contact them before you continue sending them traffic. They might not like the leads you're sending them but that scrub usually happens before payment day.

    Thanks for the reply, I will do that. I only joined a couple of days ago so It no where near payment day yet.

    I have just read the offer again and seen this "You will be paid per registration. 2% conversion rate from lead to sale is required for this offer". Im a noob so no idea what lead to sale means, however I had around 50 unique clicks yesterday and 5 sign ups from that, and also today I have 17 unique clicks today with 3 sign ups. Thats more than 2%.. or am I wrong?

    Thanks

    The registration is presumably free so you need 2% of these free registrations to pay for a monthly service of whatever in order to get paid out!

    Instead of opening a thread here you better contact them.

    They have this 2% rule.
    Mean 2% of your leads must become paying customer.

    But I don't think that can be figured out in 1 day ...... so contact the support.

    Probably don't like the quality of traffic you sent them. I sent 50 sign ups one day and they were all wiped out probably because no-one signed up for the paid service.

    What happened with your leads was that the people who signed up most likely cancelled their account. Resulting in the reversal. I know that benaughty does this with their campaigns. I can show you screen shots of loads of signups/reversals when i was pushing that offer the only thing you can really do is push harder, focus on better quality, or move to a different network. Also, the conversion from lead to sale is required by a lot networks and this means that a certain percentage of the free leads (which you are getting paid for) actually convert into customers who buy the product/service. If you don't meet this you will be kicked/banned from promoting that offer. In reality, would you want to pay someone for a lead that you know would not covert into a sale? I think not :)

    Here is a one day example:

    thanks for the replys guys. appreciate it.

    I did email them but I never got a response. I remember that a few of the conversions will have been direct from a social network website. The conversions from yesterday are still in my account (all of which were direct from email) so im guessing they didnt like where the traffic was coming from for the 5 conversions that got deleted!

    As for the leads to sale. Say the % of sales needed in order to get paid is 4%. Say I have 20 conversions in one day, 4% of 20 is 0.8, obviously you cant have 0.8 of a sale, it has to be 1+. So in order to get at least one sale I will have get 25 conversions at least.

    Could this be the problem? That I'm not getting enough conversions?

    From what i remember mate, they calculate all of your leads at the end of the month, i think that is why they delete the money, because if you look at the Pay-Per-Lead conversion table, you get paid more for each lead if you hit higher free to paid ratios. Eg : 1% conversion rate paid - 90p per lead
    2% conversion rate paid - £1.30 per lead
    3% " - £2.00

    So if at the end of the month, you have a 3% conversion rate, you have 100 leads, you get paid £200, 2% - £130.

    Hope this helps! :)
