MaxBounty is a CPA network that began in 2004 with the ideology that publishers should be paid the lion’s share of the bounty generated by their marketing efforts. Furthermore, all publishers regardless of size should be treated with respect. This core vision still holds true today.

Like other CPA Networks, we have taken the time to test MaxBounty’s tracking with our conversion engine in real-time and right away we found that setting up the campaign is quick and painless with some added bonuses.

If you have not registered at MaxBounty, head over and sign up. Each affiliate or publisher that applies will need to follow-up with an interview with an assigned account manager. It is a painless interview to learn more about you, your affiliate or publishing business and your goals with the network. After you have met their requirements your account will be activated.
