Is one of the easiest one, because the only action that is required is that a user write his zip code. These types of offers usually have a very high conversion rate that gives a payout from $0.50 and up.
The Company you promote wants a little bit more information from the visitor and you provide them with the visitors address by offering a $500 gift card or other similar offers. These offers still have a high conversion, and will trigger a payout for you around $2 and up.
