We are constantly working to try to improve our affiliate network. Our custom built network is something that really separates us from our competition because it allows us to implement features that other networks do not have. Our Cash Flow system was one of the first in the industry and has been a huge success. We are working to improve each feature within our network and this month we have been focusing on our verification process.
It is important that we focus on our account verification process because it helps prevent fraudulent publishers from being approved into PeerFly, which brings down the quality of our network traffic and ultimately loses us offers. By providing quality traffic to our advertisers not only are they happy to let our publishers keep running their offers, but they often give us pay bumps to increase the volume. With that in mind, we have made the following changes to our account verification process.
For over a year now we have required that all of our publishers from the United States and Canada upload a copy of their ID. This allows us to verify that they are who they say they are and that the information they are providing on their application is accurate. This has proven to be very useful in helping prevent fraud. We know it is somewhat of a hassle, but it is becoming common practice among companies for a reason, it works.
So, from now on all PeerFly publisher applicants will be required to upload a copy of their ID. We have tried to make the process as painless as possible by giving you two options.
The first option is what has been in place for all US and Canada publishers. You can simply scan your ID or take a picture of it with your mobile phone and upload a copy for our approvals manager to take a look at when reviewing your application.
The second option is new. We have implemented a feature that will allow you to quickly take a picture of your ID with your webcam. It’s very easy.
You can attempt to get a good picture as many times as necessary. If the first one is blurry click Reset Camera and try again. Once you have gotten a picture that looks good and is legible click Upload This! and it will be added to your application for review.
The other two verification processes remain the same. You will need to verify your e-mail and phone.
Again, these steps have been put in place to ensure that we are only approving publishers who can provide quality traffic and keep our advertisers happy, which in turn keeps our publishers happy as well. If you have any questions about the application or verification process please do not hesitate to contact us!
