  • What role does Adwents play in online advertising?

    Affiliates seek to generate advertising revenue from their websites and mailings lists but often lack in time or size to deal directly with multiple large sponsors. On the flipside, advertisers want traffic to generate sales and leads for their websites without the commitment of dealing with hundreds of individual affiliates. We acts as a single point of contact for advertisers and affiliates, acting as a trusted source for both sides. affiliates benefit from having access to hundreds of advertising campaigns and receiving a single aggregated "always on time" commission payment from us. Advertisers benefit by having their CPA/CPI/CPL campaigns made available to thousands of affiliates without having to recruit or maintain a single one.

  • What is CPA Marketing?

    CPA stands for Cost Per Action. Unlike other marketing models where an advertiser pays for every surfer seeing their ad (CPM) or clicking on their ad (CPC), an advertiser under the CPA model pays only when a specific action is taken on their website. The advertiser defines this action in advance and only pays when that action is taken. The advertiser action can be as simple as filling out a form on their website or as complex as a multi-page sign-up ending with a purchase through credit card. Generally speaking, the more involved the action, the higher an affiliate would expect to be paid for generating it.

  • Does Adwents accept international affiliates?

    We accept affiliates from all countries.

  • Will I be approved if I don't have a website?

    Maybe. How will you advertise our sponsors? Call the affiliate manager assigned to your application and have that discussion.

  • When are affiliates paid?

    Affiliates are initially paid on a monthly net 15 basis. For example, affiliates generating revenue in November will receive their payments on December 15th. Once an affiliate has received their first payment from us, they are automatically placed on a weekly payment schedule if they are receiving their payments electronically.

  • How are affiliates paid?

    We pay affiliates by Check, PayPal, Wire. The options available are dependent on an affiliate's home country. Our system tracks all earnings in US Dollars, however most international affiliates paid by check have the benefit of receiving their payment in their national currency and drafted from a local bank. We do this so international affiliates don't suffer the fees and delays often implemented by their banks when depositing American checks. The list of countries we support is too large to include here so please contact your affiliate manager if you have any questions about how you'll be paid.

  • What is incentive traffic and is it allowed?

    Incentive traffic is when an affiliate offers a surfer a reward of some kind (virtual or real) to sign up to an advertiser through their affiliate link. A potential affiliate must understand that while MaxBounty does allow some forms of incentive traffic, affiliates using incentive traffic will be limited to advertising only the few ad campaigns which accept it. Most campaigns do not accept incentive traffic. We're very selective on the kinds of incentive traffic we accept and very strict on incentive affiliate adherence to only advertising the campaigns which allow it. Generally speaking, potential affiliates who purchase or license common GPT (Get Paid To) incentive scripts, will not be accepted into the network due the higher level of problematic leads they seem to generate.

Affiliate Termination And Problems

  • I'm not using my affiliate account. Can I sell or transfer it?

    No, you may not. It is grounds for account termination or worse. The only people interested in acquiring dormant affiliate accounts do so with the intent of defrauding advertisers. If an affiliate sells their account, they're likely assisting someone in committing a crime and are subject to potential litigation. Adwents fully supports advertisers and law enforcement agencies in their attempts to prosecute for fraud. If you don't want your affiliate account anymore, simply tell your affiliate manager and we'll close it for you.

  • Can I do a joint venture where I allow someone else access to my account for a share of the profits they generate?

    No, this is directly against Adwents's affiliate terms and conditions. Just like selling your affiliate account, the bulk of those interested in joint ventures do so with intent of defrauding advertisers. An affiliate is solely responsible for the leads generated on a campaign. Should the second party in the joint venture generate fraudulent leads/sales, it's the affiliate who risks account termination and litigation, not the second party.

  • My affiliate account was terminated but I want to plead my case. What should I do?

    In most cases, by the time you've received the termination email, it's too late. Our compliance department monitors traffic/leads constantly and action is swift when a problem is found. Affiliates are generally told when a minor problem is found and given the opportunity to make corrections. Major problems usually result in immediate account termination. If you want to plead your case, send a reply to the compliance email you received. Your best bet is to admit wrongdoing, accept the reversal of your leads/sales and ask permission to try again. In the rare circumstance that an affiliate is wrongly terminated from the network, they should reply to the compliance email and politely describe the problem and why they feel they are innocent.

  • My account was terminated but only a portion of my leads were fraudulently generated. Will I get paid?

    Partial fraud doesn't equate to partial payment. No payment will be issued to a terminated account.

Advertiser

  • Who will run my ad, where will the traffic come from?

    That's a little difficult to predict as Adwents has 20,000 affiliates in the network and they selectively choose the ads they want to run themselves. A successful ad campaign might see traffic from hundreds of affiliates across multiple traffic types such as banner placements, email marketing, search engines, social media and others. An advertiser can however specify in advance whether they want to exclude certain types of traffic, like search engine or social network traffic.

  • Do I get contact with the affiliates running my ads?

    There is no direct contact between affiliates and advertisers. All contact goes through the network. Affiliates come to Adwents specifically for the benefit of having a single contact point for multiple sponsorship opportunities.

  • How does tracking work?

    Adwents uses cookies and pixels to track actions. We provide the advertiser with a tracking pixel to place on the page where they declare an action as valid and should be paid for. This pixel, combined with the cookie generated when the surfer clicks the campaign link, generates a lead in our system. Adwents also uses server-to-server tracking, for instances when pixel tracking is not feasible. We provide the advertiser with a URL to call on our server when they declare an action is valid. This server call credits the correct affiliate and correct campaign for the action generated.

  • How much volume can you do on my campaign?

    We don't predict traffic volumes on potential campaigns. There are simply too many unknown factors to give a proper estimate. Much depends on the conversion of the campaign, the target countries and demographics, the decided upon CPA rate versus competitive campaigns and the final mix of affiliates who decide to pick up any given campaign. Some campaigns can see hundreds of thousands of leads while others struggle to get hundreds per month.

  • What can we do to ensure we get quality leads?

    Adwents puts potential affiliates through a quality assurance and fraud check before we allow them into the network. This helps reduce the occurrence of fraud and bad leads. Advertisers must also work at monitoring data and reporting problems. We pass all advertisers the IDs of the affiliates generating traffic for their campaign. Advertisers should use this ID with their internal quality checks to analyze the profitability of the traffic they are receiving on an individual affiliate level.

  • How do I find out if Adwents will take me on as an advertiser?

    Send us some details about the campaign you'd like to bring to Adwents through the contact us page. Please include as much information as possible about your campaign including sample landing pages, CPA rates, target countries and budgetary caps. We receive many requests so please do not omit this information.
