Paying people to complete incentivized offers

6 replies
This might be a stupid question but wondering if this is allowed with incentivized offers.

What if I got 5 incentivized offers from 5 different networks and paid a college kid to complete all of them.

Would that be within the incentivized terms of service?

      Seems like this would be extremely profitable and I can't understand why more people aren't doing it.

    So, you would pay a kid, $5.00 to fill out an offer, that offer would pay you $10.00 and you'd pocket the difference?

    Good luck, if the CPA network caught onto you doing that, your account would be gone. They are looking for people who send real leads, not fake leads. It would work for sometime, but sooner or later, if we all did this. The advertiser themselves would have lost so much money, that they would be out of it.

    Yes that is what incentivized or incentivizable means.

    Most incentive offers will not allow "cash for offers", meaning you can't explicitly pay people money in order to complete an offer. Usually the only way you can incentivize an offer is through prizes (free ipod type sites) and will ban you for it so you better double check with your affiliate manager.

    If they are the same offers, the networks/advertisers have methods to check for fraud. Same IP, same credit card info, non converting leads. All of these will raise flags and get you banned right away.
