How Do I Create My Own CPA Offer?

Hi!

I got some ideas regarding creating my own CPA offer.

I think I got the main parts figured out, but I need some more info regarding the tracking part. Like the postback URL and stuff.

So basically, how do I set-up the code so that the affiliates will get paid if action get's fired. Is there any tool for this is should I set it up manually?

Any other tips/tricks would also be appreciated.

Best Regards Ziwok

The payment processor (got one?) <<< that post back to you triggers a sales transaction ...
CPA Offer is what? an item sold, a registration, a lead form completion ...
What triggers a your post back of an action completed?

Once you know that action has transpired, by the code on your server, you would post back the result to a known URL or Server URI of the client that initiated the transaction (the affiliate in your case)
It might be easier to do this by using an affiliate network if you are the actual seller (offer owner) -- this is a API that you would need to pay a developer to do for you most likely -- there is no *tool*

Thanks for the fast reply.
So I've got some solutions regarding the payment processor. But the niche is adult so if you have any suggestions I'm all ears.

The CPA is an item sold in this particular case.

Also, in the beginning, I won't have a network to promote my offer to, that comes in the future. So right now, I hand pick my affiliates to test the offer. I know you said it's easier to perhaps do this by using the network, but it is possible to do this without a network?

So if I were to hire a freelance developer to fix this API, what exactly would I tell him to create, if you could elaborate on that?

Thanks again.

I have been involved in the adult webcam *industry* since 2002 and am familiar with porn pay-sites ( and I am not looking for a job [per se):D) That is adult -- to my thinking dating is perhaps peripheral to the xxx adult industry "vertical" . Anything to do with so-called *escort services* is not illegal in the USA any longer see >>>F.OS.T.A. ask backpage.com

That said;
  • Your first problem is credibility
  • Your second problem is financial stability
  • If you want to attract affiliates you need to show a going concern with sales potential
Can you establish those facts now?

I have had many friends get screwed hiring "free lance developers" Every affiliate program that is in house has in house developers and programmers -- experienced affiliates will expect this. In house affiliate programs have issues that require attention all the time (at least in the webcam business).

You could look into contracting with NATS Affiliate Software for Tracking & Membership Mgmt for affiliate tracking
-- toomuchmedia has a reasonably good reputation in the adult arena with affiliates. They will help you with the credibility issues -- especially with any start-up situation.

CCBill is an adult processor with an optional affiliate sign-up and administration also. That might work -- it's a bit archaic however ...

Hello Ziwok.

You can always use Hasoffers or similar to hold your offers and then add the postback from each affiliate to the backend. What kind of offer is it? CPA is a little vague.

Hi! Got almost everything figured out thus far. So almost ready to launch.
It's meant to be little bit vague ;)
