    Hey guys ! I`m working with some cpa networks and I noticed that once in a while offers, for example, products samples, all of the sudden redirect to loans offers. And i`m using the network direct link to the offer. I don`t get it , why is that ? Is this cloaking from the advertiser part?

    Is the offer active in your country? If not, some networks and if not the network then the advertiser redirects untargeted traffic to other offers - you won't get paid for those though

    Maybe you're running a tag instead of a direct link?

    There can be several reasons
    First of all, the offer is stopped. Check with your AM if the offer is still active.
    Secondly, you're trying to open this offer from the wrong targeting (country, device, connection type, carrier). Using proxies and spoofing user-agent would not help as advertisers can detect those activity.
    Also some advertisers redirect users that have already converted on this offer to the other one to increase revenue. So if you have tested your campaigns previously, you cannot open the link now.

    as @nickky said above, it's possible that you're accessing the offer from wrong geo/device/browser, it's possible that you already have cookie from the offer page so they (since you as a visitor didn't convert) are sending you to another offer trying to monetize your click...
    It's also possible that cap on the offer was reached, and once cap is reached network needs to send your traffic somewhere, and maybe they decided that you will be sent to the loans offer.

    It's also possible that in the backend of the aff.network advertisers are live bidding for your clicks, and when advertiser no.1 doesn't want to bid on your click, advertiser no.2 wins the bid for your click and because of that you are redirected to the offer from the advertiser no.2...
    That's how network KIMIA works :)

    Check if the offewr is still live. And make sure you are browsing the offer according to all its settings if the useragent
