    Hey guys, one of my sites (adult) is getting a good amount of german traffic, but unlinke other contries with the same or less amount of visits, it doesn't seem to convert at all. If theres anyone experienced on german traffic, could you please give me an explanation?

    Germans are not conditioned to have their credit card at hand at all times (if ever they even have one). It's not very common that the average 'Hans' has a credit card at all.
    Since most adult offers charge via credit card, there often is no way to subscribe/buy anything simply because there is no option available for them.

    Here is more about that:

    Well credit cards are not THAT uncommon, actually. Most adults have one, but we use it very often here - so yeah, thats probably the point.

    Traffic source is similar and traffic quality is the same as the traffic your other sites are getting?
    How is a conversion defined?

    Did you read the article and my quote?
    Here is another one from an american that moved to Germany about what she changed in her habits:
    http://matadornetwork.com/life/9-american-habits-i-lost-when-i-moved-to-germany/?single=1

    Acceptance of credit cards is very wide, especially because of tourism, and maybe you (and people around you) use your credit card a lot, but this doesn't reflect the Germans as an whole...

    Pfft, fuck you too :p


    I wrote my reply before you edited in the article. 33% of adults owning a credit card is really not much, I would have guessed 60% at least. Point to you!
    Acceptance of credit card isnt very wide by the way. Even some of the big supermarkets still doesnt accept it.

    I'm born in Germany and can you say -> here in germany, we don't have much creditcards. if we can, we buy stuff without creditcard. even i don't have a creditcard.
    peoples here in germany like to buy stuff with their bankaccount (online banking) or paypal.. creditcard + online = not rly common here @germany.

    if you like to have more conversation, get us germanys stuff that we like & can buy (and not with a creditcard..) ;P

    greetings

    German traffic on my website is also not converting very well (incentive CPA). I know a few people that have lots of German traffic, but low conversions. They are just like that I guess.

    I think German traffic is also same as rest country, it depend if the offer is appealing or not for them to use Credit card.

    You can completely forget Credit Card based offers for Germany. Here you use your standard Bank Account+Card or PayPal to pay online :)

    As a German I think many people here are more careful and inhibited when it comes down to buying things online from sites they never heard of. It all depends on the offer, but I'm sure many germans would think twice if they really want to give their payment details out to a pornsite they reached by some redirect. Just IMO of course :)
