Affiliate fraud continues to rise year over year, with fraudsters exploiting every type of payment method from ISP and mobile carrier billing to credit card fraud. Even surveys, market research, and cost per lead program can be significantly affected by fake leads and bot fraud. Over the past few years, fraudsters have expanded their reach to generating fake software & mobile app installs and even automating the submission of fake user information in CPL lead generation campaigns. These trends have contributed to the popularity of IPQS bot detection filtering with clients in the ad industry. As affiliate fraud continues to waste billions per year in advertiser budgets, IPQS estimates that affiliate fraud can affect between 20% to 60% of an advertiser's total conversions.
Ad Fraud across all vertical types is also a serious nuisance for the digital ad industry. Fake video views, automated installs, iframe abuse, PPC click fraud, and other types of fraudulent activity, often fueled by bots, are a significant challenge for marketers. Many advertisers are forced to completely pause campaigns or sever partnerships with certain ad networks due to abusive traffic generated by ad fraud.
Fraudulent affiliates are always trying to take advantage of successful affiliate marketing programs. IPQS affiliate fraud detection tools can verify publisher information like IP address, email address, phone number, device score, and similar signals to validate legitimate affiliates. Every affiliate program needs to an extensive publisher approval process as their base foundation to mitigate affiliate fraud. The affiliate marketing industry frequently changes, and fraudulent affiliates similarly change their own techniques every few months. IPQS
