Running a PeerFly Offer with TONIC Zero Click Traffic

How to run a PeerFly Offer on TONIC

I have received a lot of questions about a traffic source I recently recommended so I thought it would be beneficial to do a quick guide and explain how to to run a PeerFly offer with TONIC’s zero click traffic.

TONIC is a traffic marketplace (ad network) where you can buy zero click and pop traffic.

I prefer to run the zero click domain traffic because it seems to convert better. It’s called zero click traffic because when someone goes to one of the domains in TONIC’s network, they are automatically redirected to the offer you are advertising. The visitor is not required to click an ad.

So, let’s take a look at how you can setup a PeerFly offer directly linking to your affiliate link and start getting traffic and conversions from TONIC!

TONIC ad network

The first step is creating a TONIC advertiser account. You can find their advertiser registration form here.

Once you’re signed up and have made your first deposit ($100 minimum), you’re ready to create your first zero click campaign.

Choosing an Offer to Run on TONIC

We have over 700 affiliate offers at PeerFly that you can run on TONIC.

TONIC’s zero click traffic is considered PPV by our standards, so you can sort through all the offers available simply by typing PPV in the search offers box at the top of every page on PeerFly or by going to our Browse Offers page and select PPV as your marketing method.

Most of the campaigns I run on TONIC are mobile and I like to run the 1 or 2 click flow offers for international countries.

Browse through our PPV offers on PeerFly and pick a few to test for your first campaigns.

Once you have your offers ready, it’s time to setup your campaign on TONIC.

TONIC - Setup Zero Click Campaign

Creating a Zero Click Campaign on TONIC

One of the recent improvements to TONIC is their advertiser user interface. The new campaign creation process is very easy to use and you can setup a new campaign in minutes.

Here is the basic criteria for each campaign:

  • Country – You can target one geo at a time with your Zero Click campaigns on TONIC. Choose the country that your offer allows. If it allows more than 1 geo, select one country to test and then create a campaign for the others you want to test.
  • Campaign Type – I run RON campaigns 99% of the time and then optimize based on source, but you can choose to run a keyword or category campaign as well.
  • Traffic Category – Most of the campaigns I run on TONIC are non-adult, but if you have a good adult offer you want to try, you can choose to run adult traffic specifically.
  • Device Targeting – My campaigns are usually for mobile offers, but I have had some successful desktop campaigns on TONIC as well.
  • Browsers – I will normally optimize based on browser after I have found sources that work (a deeper optimization), but you can select specific browsers you want to get traffic from.
  • Tablet Options – Unless a mobile offer specifically allows tablets, I do not include them.
  • Mobile OS Targeting – For most offers, I will accept all mobile targeting OS options until after I have received traffic and then optimize based on what OS is performing best. If the offer you are running only allows a certain OS (Android or iOS only) then you can select that operating system and remove the others.
  • Carriers – The 1 click flow offers I have been running usually only allow specific carriers. If you are running a desktop campaign, you will not need to worry about this.
  • Date Settings – I usually “Just Run It”
  • Weekly Schedule – I usually “Just Run It”
  • Budget – I usually “Just Run It” and then will budget based on the traffic if needed.
  • Campaign Name – I will usually just put the offer ID from PeerFly for the campaign name.

A really cool feature TONIC has is that while you are making adjustments to your camapign setup, the expected uniques/month number on the right side of the page will update telling you the overall amount of traffic you could expect based on your criteria. Your bid will determine your actual traffic volume, but it’s nice to have a general idea of how much traffic TONIC has for the criteria that you are setting up.

You can also use their Traffic Estimator tool to get this same data prior to setting up your campaign if you are researching different offers in different geos.

The next (and final step) to creating your campaign is entering your bid information and the offer URL.

Bidding for Traffic on TONIC

Step 2 in the campaign creation process on TONIC is setting your bid per redirect and entering your redirect (offer) URL.

Depending on the geo you have selected for your campaign, the average CPC will fluctuate based on the current bidders for that traffic in TONIC.

TONIC Bidding

I usually start my bidding pretty low. In the example above, I started it at $0.001. That means that for every “click” (redirect) my affiliate link receives, I only have to pay $0.001.

As your campaign runs, you’ll be able to see if you should increase or decrease your bid based on the traffic you receive.

One of the really nice things about TONIC is that is it fairly cheap and it’s also fairly easy to optimize. If I have a few sources giving me conversions, I can setup a campaign specifically for those sources, increase my bid, and capture a majority of the traffic and scale to increase profit.

At $0.001 per redirect, I am only paying $1 for 1,000 clicks. That’s a really nice test with a lot of data for $1.

Below your bid, you enter your Redirect URL. The Redirect URL is simply your affiliate link from PeerFly.

You’ll see that below the Redirect URL box is a list of the variables (tokens) that TONIC supports:

  • [carrier]
  • [country]
  • [cpc]
  • [match]
  • [mob_pf]
  • [sourceid]

They have more information on the these parameters in their FAQ, but the two I use for my mobile campaigns are [sourceid] and [carrier].

The [sourceid] will pass the domain source in TONIC that I am getting the traffic from. They have a ton of different sources and it’s very important you can include the source ID as a SubID in your PeerFly affiliate link so you can optimize based on the sources you receive traffic from.

I also use the [carrier] in my PeerFly affiliate link so that I can optimize based on carrier if the offer allows traffic from multiple carriers.

PeerFly - TONIC SubIDs Macros Variables

To include the variables as SubIDs in your PeerFly affiliate link, simply copy and paste them into the SubID boxes on the offer page (shown above).

Then, copy and paste your affiliate link from PeerFly into the Redirect URL box on TONIC. Click Save and Start Campaign and you’re all set!

Once you start getting traffic, you will start to see clicks in your PeerFly Reports. You can run a report for a specific offer you have setup on TONIC and then group by the different SubIDs you have setup in your affiliate link.

In the example above, I passed the [sourceid] into s1 of my PeerFly link so if I group by s1, I can see the different sources I am getting traffic from on TONIC.

PeerFly TONIC Source SubID Report

This is a new campaign so I do not have a lot of traffic yet, but you can see I’m already getting a nice amount from the top few sources and once I start getting conversions, it’ll be able to easily see which sources they’re coming from so I can optimize.

Creating and optimizing a campaign in TONIC with offers from PeerFly is easy. The reports on PeerFly will make it easy to optimize your campaigns and the cheap traffic from TONIC makes it an ideal traffic source to test.

Give TONIC a shot and let me know what you think.

  1. Luke, it’s like you’ve been spying on my browser history, lol. I had just heard about TONIC from another marketer and I was researching TONIC yesterday!

    I had just setup my account last night and I was waiting on funding it, to do more research and then, BAM! You sent me this article. Perfect timing!

    I’m now off to try a couple of Peerfly offers to see how it performs for me. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Thank you!

  2. Hey Luke,

    Are you direct linking for most of the campaigns?

    Also as a off topic ppv question, how long do campaigns on ppv usually last for?

    1. Yes, I am direct linking on TONIC. The longevity really just depends on the amount of traffic the source has that you’re looking for. Some geos will be much shorter, but good sources like TONIC seem to be getting more and more traffic.

  3. Great post-Luke.

    Although you beat me too it… I was half way through writing my Tonic guide…

    Tonic is one of the traffic sources I’ve been recommending that beginners try out for years. Overall their traffic quality is actually quite good in many geos… cough *South Africa* 😉

    I would suggest either breaking up the screenshots a bit more so they are larger or make it so you can zoom in on them. Often they are too small to see.

  4. This is sweet…and easily the best thing since sliced bread.They (gurus) will tell you everything but the traffic source.Thanks Luke !

  5. Thanks for that luke, very useful.

    Have you used Tonic for anything other that CPA offers? E.g. affiliate sales links, squeeze pages, Shopify items

    If so, were they successful?


  6. Zero click traffic hasn’t gone mainstream yet i guess – one question Mr Luke, how do we know we are allowed to run peerfly offers on Zero Click ? It usually isn’t stated or when we see pop traffic is allowed – we can also run the offer on Zero Click?

    1. I don’t really have a set number and I believe a big factor is the offer you are promoting. If it seems like something that should convert fairly consistently and you have a source that has spent 2-3x the payout, it’s probably okay to remove that one and assume it’s not going to be profitable.

      This is one of those things that you’ll just need to gauge with the campaign 🙂

  7. hi luke thanks for the great info you shared ,i know a guy selling the same info for $299 ha ha ha.
    i didn’t tried TONIC before but some say’s that usually offers with higher payout are recommended as the CR is very low what you’r opinion luke!

  8. Luke,
    Awesome tutorial on Tonic.
    I am just getting started back up in the marketing realm after a long hiatus (long story)
    I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading this site, the information is really valuable.
    Thanks for your creation.

  9. Thank you Luke as I will also do Peer Fly as well as try my purses website once I am all moved into another city soon. Thank you for sharing and being so helpful as I have yet to make money…In the past have lost thousands of dollars 🙁

  10. Hey Luke

    we are developing a one stop SAAS system for affiliates now , and do you think we can advertise on your website ?

    and let me know your thought .

    Best Regards

  11. What a coincident! I just signed up for Tonic. I am really glad that you put out this guid

    because I got some really good tips that I did not see.

    Thanks again,

    Talk soon, Bryan

  12. Hello Luke, thanks for the good work. Can you give us the best category of offers that convert best with the network and we want more on the optimisation.
    Give figures on your recent campaign with Tonic.

      1. Ive been trying to find some unlocked mobile pin submit offers on peerfly to test this but there does not seem to be many?

  13. HI Luke Hope you are doing great ..
    When I am trying to put direct link of any offer then url always redirect to
    or some other coupon or any spin lottery site.. I am really stuck and I am not getting how to do in a right manner please help me out…I am planning to run offer on tonic but I am afraid that what will happen if url will redirect some where else..

  14. Hi Luke,

    Using Zero Click, is it best to link direct to the offer or create a landing page like PPV?

    Great article btw!

  15. I’ve work account and you deposit $ 100
    And you make a first campaign

    Why take the time to activate the campaign and bring traffic

  16. Thanks Luke…awesome post!

    I was actually running a couple of Peerfly campaigns on Tonic when I stumbled upon your post…

    I followed everything you say in this article to the T and spent approx 70$ (total of 5000 visitors), with Peerfly offers only. The last one is a mobile campaign…but no conversions as of yet.

    How much do you spend or how many visitors do you send to an offer before deciding to ditch a campaign?

    Thanks a bunch!

  17. Hi there, although Popads is within Adsbridge template , cost per click/view is not passed in adsbridge…im not sure what im doing wrong …all the rest of tokens and datas are passed perfectly… Same happen for TONIC ( im on topic..)although they arent in template and i created the traffic source … any tip please?

      1. I have loaded my account with $100 and create my first campaign. After that they saying my account get blocked. I ask them why like this, they said, “for security reason “. what I will do now? any suggestion?

  18. Hello Luke,
    I’m in TONIC at a rate of 0.002 at all I do not have trifik. The campaigns were RON, Mobile + Wifi to Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Spain and several more. Traffic starts to arrive only at a rate of 0.01 and very slowly. For a day about 2k traffic was only a maximum …

  19. HI Luke , great article ,
    How about if we can run TONIC traffic for ads arbitrage , Is it safe for Adsense and other third party networks like

    1. Tonic’s TOS upon signup says this:

      Prohibited content to promote on TONIC.
      Google parked domains or Google Adsense

      They can block your account for this.

      Thanks for the guide Luke!

  20. for me tonic is the worst PPV I’ve been use i spend 100$ without result. and they have bad platform, sometimes it work sometimes you will find alot of bugs, i think they hire a bad developer in angular. so iu advice you dont lose your money with it. if you dont trust me i can provide sceenshoot/live conversation to see reality not a payed article

  21. Hello Luke,
    Great articles and information, i have registered for TONIC, but my account status is showing Unauthorized,why this and what can i do ?


  22. I Tried Tonic Traffic on clickbank products. I ran a diet offer. The traffic seems to be hitting but so far no conversions. Spent like $150 bucks , but Saw no conversion.

  23. Hi Luke,

    Awesome guide indeed. Just to inform you my experience. I tried anything you said step by step then Tonic give me this email right after i deposit $100.

    “Hi ifad,

    unfortunately we have to inform you that your account has been suspended because of Legal issues.
    If you believe this was done in error, please submit any supporting information to [email protected]

    No info of violation i did, or how to make refund. I don’t see any goodwill from Tonic here.

    I hope you could recommend similar service but treat customer better.

    Have a good day!

    1. Same thing just happened to me…absolutely no explanation! Asked for i.d. so I emailed it to them. Everything I sent matched all my info…email…paypal email…name on email and PayPal acct and still shut me down. Screw tonic…

  24. In one word it’s either. Bot or trash traffic.Do not waste time and money.i tried to use it for arbitrage.the traffic didn’t generate any clicks at 20000 visitors .It’s not how real human traffic are just spoiling your brand reputation by publishing an article about the fraud.

  25. Hi Luke,
    Thanks for this timely post. I have been approved into top CPA sites like Peerfly, Maxbounty and Bountycpa but have been trying to figure out the best way to generate traffic for my campaigns.
    With this information, I will no longer search for traffic source but sort for money to run my campaigns and start earning money. Thanks once again for the post. Do have a lovely day.

  26. Does it take a while before you fund your account to switch from pending to funded just tried to fund my account?

  27. Hi, I have a question about CPA in general. I was wondering if anyone has info on a great free course, that really explains CPA. I have my account at Peerfly, just need to dig in, so many GURU”S and not enough truth! I just funded my account at TONIC, now I am looking for no frills,thrills info. Any idea here in this forum where to find such info? This guide on TONIC seems very good, I think I need a general understanding on CPA, thank you.

    1. we can share views on this issue,i just funded my account at Tonic too,and plan to dig in peerfly offers by using Bemob as tracker,now running across a problem with Bemob tracking Tonic which has been posted here to turn to Luke.
      My email:[email protected]

  28. I don’t mean to spoil it for anyone but after spending $200 and no conversions,you might wanna think twice before using this traffic source for peerfly 1 or 2 clickflow offers. It just doesn’t work ! ….but then i tried the same traffic source (Tonic) with another network and saw some conversions so the traffic source may work, not just with Peerfly offers. My honest opinion.

  29. Luke can you pls give us another detailed tutorial & traffic source that works well with peerfly offers. It’ll highly be appreciated by many i’m sure. I followed this tutorial to the teeth but saw no conversions. Thanks anyways for this one.

  30. Hi Luke thanks for this guide, I heard about this traffic source from a WSO I purchased recently.
    Do you think offers in the MMO niche will convert with traffic from Tonic?

  31. Hi there,
    I am running 5 offers from Peerfly on Tonic for a couple of days and so far no one single conversion.
    I will keep you guys posted.

  32. They can activate my account for security reasons. BS, they don’t want to mess around with small accounts.
    Really a shame.

    Rule of business number one:
    never force anybody to take your money !!

      1. I just tried to create a tracking link in clickmagick and I named it tonic and when I hit the save button it gave me an error message pointing me to an faq that says they won’t track tonic traffic and listed a bunch of other ad platforms that they won’t track. They seem to consider these ad platforms not so great traffic, but I’ve heard good things about tonic.

      2. That’s odd. I don’t use ClickMagick so I can’t really say what their deal is. I like TONIC and have profitable campaigns there.

  33. Hello Luke,

    Having viewed your two topics:peerfly with tonic & peerfly with Bemob,i got a problem to fix and need your help.

    I would like to use BeMob as tracker to optimize traffic used from Tonic to promoted my peerfly offers,when i stepped into last phase of zero click campaign being told that “Your redirect ORL above doesnot contain (clickid) variable,add one if you want to use a postback url”.
    I followed your tutorials to setup affiliate network,Offer and global postback in BeMob,finally Bemob campaign failed at last phase of Tonic zero click campaign.I just want to use Bemob to track tonic traffic used for my offer in order to optimized.

    Waiting for your reply on this issue.

    Best regards,
