Frequently Asked Questions

for publishers

How much can I make?

The earnings vary based on the website and advertisers willing to spend money on it. Typically we see around a $3.50 CPM (cost per 1,000 impressions). Average earnings per 1,000 impressions is around $1.75 but can fluctuate based on advertiser demand.

For example, a moderately popular website with 500,000 ad impressions per month at a $3.50 CPM would generate anywhere between $875 and $1,200/month.

for publishers

How often am I paid?

We pay the publishers by the 20th of the following month the ad impressions generated the month prior. Currently we only support payments via PayPal and JustWorks (for US residents). US tax laws apply.

Payments are made once the publisher has accrued $20 of distributions. We also provide the option to be paid without a minimum amount via ETH or DAI crypto-currencies.
