It’s all written in legalese, but they just seem to be emphasizing that they really don’t want you running cpv on offers that say it’s not allowed.
Anyone know if this means they’re clamping down on cpv affiliates?

If direct linking, my understanding is they might be able to tell the traffic source (even if cloaked) b/c the user agent info is passed.
Anyone know how to cloak the user agent?

I’ve actually asked my AM and on occasion had advertisers specifically allow me to run PPV simply because i was nice enough to ask and had good history with the network. Being the only person to run a unique campaign on PPV = $$
Seriously, I know many affiliates like to push the boundaries and make a ton of cash doing it. But unless you know exactly what you are doing it can bite you in the ass. It’s not like it it’s difficult to be compliant in this industry.

That’s totally true cuz you know they are always on guard for fraudulent activity and are quick with that ban hammer if you don’t have an AM with some weight behind them.

If you direct link… the user agent will be passed and they will see it’s a PPV traffic source. If you use a lander, you simply need to have the offer open in a new link. This will scrub the user agent and if you send it through a double meta refresh you’ll also scrub your referer too.
