HOW DO WE DETECT AND PREVENT?
Affiliate marketing fraud is not an easy task, however at Direct Affiliate, we have followed and implemented some best ways to detect and prevent these kinds of fraud.

Therefore, we can strongly say that users who join our network and do not abide by the rules will be automatically and immediately blocked.
2. We are professional in the market. We have been in the industry for a while now and we are fully aware of the kinds of fraudulent activities that occurs around affiliate marketing and how to detect them. We keep a close eye on the date we receive for instance information on referring sites, IP addresses, transaction trends etc.
3. Approval of accounts before they begin being an affiliate with us. We encourage anyone who wants to get started with affiliate marketing or already in the industry to join up with us as an affiliate by creating an account with us. The next step, our affiliate managers will look through these accounts such as their website and traffic to ensure they are as legit to begin with and have their accounts approved before they can start promoting our products.
