The ID on your PeerFly Application

One of the methods we use in our PeerFly Publisher applications to deter fraudsters from getting approved into our network is that we require each publisher to upload a photo copy of their ID. We are one of the few affiliate networks to require it and because of that, experienced affiliate marketers sometimes question it and some new publishers are uncomfortable providing that type of sensitive information. Well, it is a requirement and we will not review your application without it so here is some more information to help why explain it is required and what type of ID is acceptable.

Why is it required?

It all goes back to helping stop fraud. There is a lot of fraud in the affiliate marketing industry. Requiring all publishers to upload a copy of their photo ID has really helped stop most of those fraudsters from applying to PeerFly. Sure, some still apply and some try to upload fake IDs, but our compliance and approvals guys are very good at detecting fakes and stopping them from getting in.

By stopping fraudulent publishers from joining PeerFly we are able to keep our overall network traffic quality up, which makes advertisers happy and in return we are able to get higher payouts on our offers for our publishers and that keeps them happy as well. Don’t believe me? Take a look through our offers! 🙂

What type of ID is acceptable?

We try to be as lenient as possible when it comes to the actual ID provided. We know that the laws and types of ID distributed throughout the countries in the world are different, but you should have no problem providing one of the following:

  1. Driver’s License
  2. Identification Card (state, military, school)
  3. Government issued National ID
  4. Passport

You must submit a color copy of whichever ID you choose.

How do I upload it?

When you complete the profile on your application you will be asked to complete the 3 verification steps. When you select the ID upload you will be presented with two options:

  1. Upload a picture from your computer.
  2. Use your webcam to take an instant picture.

If you have trouble uploading the image from your computer (the file type is not allowed or the image is too big) you are welcome to email it to me as an attachment and I will take care of it for you. Contact me for more information.

You can also take a picture of your ID with your webcam. Here is an example:

Your ID is securely stored on our server while your application is reviewed. You can find more information on the ID upload process on our PeerFly blog here. Please let me know if you if you have any questions.

  1. I don’t have a problem providing my ID. I have a problem with providing it, then having my application denied without explanation. So where is my personal info now?

    1. I believe there was a typo on your application when you applied and that is what caused your application to get denied. I have emailed you to follow up.

  2. Hi. I recieved your message after I uploaded a picture which i took with my webcam. I got rejected again probably because of the picture. The picture was taken in day light with my laptop webcam.I can reupload my ID card picture. I also can send that picture to you. Kindly verify my account and give me another chance to upload the ID card picture.

    I will really very thankful to you,

  3. the picture i uploaded this time was not an id card picture. If i get another chance to upload a picture, I will upload my ID card picture. I can even send that picture to you. Please reply quick.

  4. I did a webcam license photo and you are asking for another but I can’t get my webcam to do it again, I have an HP. Please help me out, I want to use this service.

  5. Hi,
    You requesting our private information and our ID but you and your site have not been as transparent such as having you revealed who you really are and your true image within the inner page for your new signups information and confidence. Right now, we have no idea who you really are or claim to be,

    How can you expect us to trust and hand over our private information to someone who’s real identity is not known or verified? Dont you think it’s fair for you to take the lead first before asking for the same?

    Just a well-intended feedback that hopefully will see more transparencies of you and your operations including your existing team members if any whose identities/photos must also be published within the inner member area for all members to know whose handling their private information. In addition, tell us how you will ensure that our private information will not be abused by you or any one of your team members.

    Thank you

  6. I see several rejections above. What happens to my very sensitive information if I apply and get rejected? Does the network provide a proof of deleting them afterwords or a signed NDA sent by mail?

  7. I have uploaded a picture of my driving license. But I live in Germany so I have a german driving license card, will this do or should I take another picture of my ID card as well?
