Hey TBNers!

I got a question!

What If I made a PPD site similar to sharecash or uploadables?

The site would give you 75% of each survey conversion rate.

For example, if a user unlocked a download using a $1.00 survey, you would be paid $0.75. Most surveys pay more though.

So would you guys use this site. Its just an idea, since I was bored and what not.

Please posts your thoughts!

XD I mean I dont know the usual amount filerev pays you of each survey.

Those PPD Gods would be making a fortune of me XD

I mean I can have a site up like this in hours. But maybe itll be an invite only with a specific file limit.

I dont want to many members.

I am actually working on a script like this, I am almost finished. However, the only part I am having problems is with the 'Postback'.

have you thought about the thousands of reversals you will end up getting? or how about those people that can bypass the locker?

which ppd script are u using?
postback is super simple.

i will show you an example....

PHP:
<?php
//if the network uses a post use $_POST if network uses a get use $_GET 
//if network uses a request use $_REQUEST
if(isset($_GET['campaign_id']) && $_GET['campaign_id'] > 0)
{
    //make a var that is shorter for use with rest of postback
    //do this for every var your network is using
    $cid=$_GET['campaign_id'];
    //do this if statement only after the the campaign_id is validated
    if(isset($_GET['subid']) && $_GET['subid'] != "")
    {
        $sid=$_GET['subid'];
        //do this if statement after subid has been validated
        if(isset($_GET['rate']))
        {
            $rate=$_GET['rate'];
            //now for the status stuff
            if(isset($_GET['status']) && $_GET['status'] == 1 || $_GET['status'] == "approved")
            {
                $q=mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE username='$sid' LIMIT 1") 
                or die(mysql_error());
                $n=mysql_num_rows($q);
                if($n == 1)
                {
                    while($r=mysql_fetch_array($q))
                    {
                        $userid=$r['userid'];
                     }
                 }
                 //do math, take away from the rate so you profit
                 //multiply the rate by the percentage in decimal form
                 $total=($rate * 0.75);
                 mysql_query("UPDATE users SET cash=cash+$total WHERE userid=$userid")
                 or die(mysql_error());
             }
        }
    }
}
?>

codez is right but only less ppl may know how to bypass those lockers but if its post back then everything is server side unless a smart coder knows the code for the post back.
About the reversals i think he needs to talk to the CPA company first so that they won't ban him on reversals but he must also add the option where a reversal means that that the uploader's money is also canceled (not his whole balance but only the offer amount)

with the code i posted above you can make a postback you can add in an if statement that will check if status
is -1

this is normally what the reversal is to the script so you just add the if and take the $total var and put something like

PHP:
mysql_query("UPDATE users SET cash=cash-$total WHERE userid=$userid");

also note that if you do postback like this you are going to need a postback log so that you can easily check if credited, and if they were then take the money back after the reversal.

Hmm, well Ill put more thought to this.
Ive got 3 PMs saying they could help. Maybe they can help me. IDK yet, I just thought about this idea yesterday.

One trouble im having is hosting.

Im building a new server but should I host it theere, its a 50 TB server.

Or should I pay $XXX a month buying a VPS or Dedicated Server.

Storage I was thinking a couple terabytes, since there a file limt, file size limit, and limited members. We shouldnt take up much space.

Hosting ideas?

Hmm, well would a VPS, or Dedicated have enough juice and storage for hosting a mild-ish file site?

Not sure where you're going with this one...

XD I mean I dont know the usual amount filerev pays you of each survey.

80%.

I haven't hit over 2GB Disk Space, so you don't need a huge server.

Hmm, well Im thinking 5 or 10 gb each member.

As for the pay per download, itll be %85 of each conversion.

But that might be changed.

Also, I was thinking of adding premium for members. This just means more file space, bigger file limit, and MAYBE %90 per conversion!
Bump, I still need your guys' advice!

Bump! Advice?

Bump!!?!?!?!

High payout is dandy and all but taxes will be like 15%. 90% payout would mean you will be losing money.

That's IF you're doing it without any other sort of income. I JUST switched my LLC into my name (now that I'm 18) and had to pay 30%+ on my earnings last year. Thank GOD I didn't have FileRev running last year -___-

Yeah, but then you don't get interested members, lol. Sign up to a network, find offers that work, track where the network is getting them from, sign up to THAT network. Repeat, lol.
