How it works?
To be short – customer pays when product is delivered. It means no online payments. So let’s take a closer look at the process.
- User clicks on banner or other ad.
- User is redirected to prelander page and then to landing page, where he leaves his name and phone number. Usually it’s a simple 2-field form.
- Call-center confirms the order by phone call.
- Publisher gets his payout
As you can see, it’s a quite simple CPL scheme. Notice that we pay for lead, not for sale. This is the key difference between our offers and usual CPS offers, that have their limitations.

Some of them may change their mind and refuse to buy a product .Usually, the networks take care about all the orders that not paid, meaning the webmasters get save their money anyway. Another point is Approve Rate. It shows us percentage of paid orders and check traffic quality.
