    I've just signed up to peerfly today and for the final step they ask for my ID.
    WTF? They have no right to ask me for ID verification.

    What kind of idiot provide his ID for an affiliate account?

    You must be new. Almost all affiliate networks require ID upon completion of form. Some of them may require ID if your form seems faked.

    They have the right to have your ID. It's up to you if you want to give it to them or not.

    Well, clickbank doesn't require me to provide my ID.
    Amazon doesn't require me to provide my ID.

    I don't see any reason why they should be allowed to ask for ID.

    There are lot of payment processors and affiliate sites that require your ID cards
    No biggy in this
    They will not steal you identity and come back at your address then grab you and brainwash you and send you for a highly classified Mission

    Notice I said "Almost all"?!

    You are behaving like a kid man. There are several reasons for which they may require your ID. If they suspect fraud, they will ask for ID. This may be the internet but you still have to show some sort of ID. If you feel incomfortable with giving away your identity, merely don't use them.

    Alot of CPA network require ID



    Peerly is kinda straight I remember when I first sign up I send them a copy of my ID in the wrong format but everything was clear they wanted it in the right format
