We are more than a network for affiliates, we are a 'haven' to help you succeed and make sure your needs as the affiliate comes first and you are protected from unnecessary inconvenience. We work hard to manage advertisers and financials so you can focus on your campaigns. That truth being told, we asked the most pertinent questions from your perspective...
Why is CPATank different than other CPA networks?
We get asked all the time: "What makes your network from the competition? Why would someone choose your network over let's say neverblue or copeac?" This is when CPATank gets the opportunity to shine:
- CPATank can take the heat. CPATank is extremely well capitalized and can guarantee payments on risky traffic if it is discussed up front honestly with your manager. CPATank is always down to push the limits and many times has succeeded. Many affiliates who have been banned at other networks bring those exact same campaigns to us and we are able to make them a success. It is very hard to get banned from CPATank once you are already in.
- CPATank never withholds payments unless campaigns appear to be blatantly fraudulent and since we are professionals at collecting aggressively from advertisers. CPATank can afford to pay out on everything, even when advertisers don't pay.
- CPATank is significantly more financially responsible than any of the competing networks. Larger competitors have too much overhead to be able to compete on payouts or truly guarantee payments, smaller competitors are barely surviving week to week. CPATank has low overhead and usually carries at least five times the payouts owed to affiliates in cash on hand.
- CPATank has some of the best reviewed affiliate managers anywhere out there. CPATank only associates itself with credible, professional and talented employees who have a good grasp on most things about affiliate marketing.

Money is Power: CPATank is Power.
Do I need to spend anything to start?
However you promote is up to you. Many methods require absolutely no investment. However, this is a business that you are managing yourself. The most successful methods may require some investment for resources or traffic, if you cannot grasp possibly losing during the learning curve, quit while you are ahead. Losing money is sometimes part of the process and is considered an expense of doing business. CPATank can help you manage risk and coordinate properly to make sure that you are as profitable as possible as soon as possible and for as long as possible, but ultimately the action you take as an affiliate will determine your individual success.
What is NOT allowed?
Please read over the CPATank Terms of Service to ensure you are within our guidelines. However, we can frequently make exceptions for you if matters are discussed and agreed upon up front, so after reviewing the TOS do not hesitate to contact a Manager and ask again to see if an exception can be made.
Do you pay for referrals?
We feel that joining CPATank.com is an exclusive privilege. So we do not currently pay for referrals. That being said, private deals can be arranged for quality affiliate referrals.
CPATank does not pay for referrals because we feel that your referral is worth more than just a few pennies. We reinvest heavily into the network and appreciate affiliates who invest in CPATank by referring the best and brightest. You should be referring your strongest, most elite marketing connections to CPATank to both benefit them and help grow the strength of the network.
Also, being referral only helps keep our advertising costs low, which keeps our payouts high. On average CPATank makes around 5% margin on our largest offers. If competitors are offering you a 6% referral fee, that is more than our total margin, and you know they are making something too, so do you really want to refer your friend somewhere where they are going to have lower payouts or would you rather refer them to the network that will ensure them the highest bottom line? The decision is yours.
