FAQ

Absolutely! We are happy to submit your revenue each month into your collective.


Advertisers

We have amazing, high-traffic websites like jsbin.com, devhints.io and codesandbox.io, along with many others. Each property is pre-approved based on their impression volume and content. Once you have an advertiser account, you will be able to search and bid on individual websites for maximum ROI.

In order to get a good sense of the value CodeFund can provide, we ask that all advertisers commit to a minimum of $500 for the first month. Typical advertisers spend between $1,000 to $5,000 per month.

Our goal has always been to help sustain open source software through ethical advertising. We do not hide our information and make sure you have all the data you need to make effective decisions for maximum ROI.


Publishers

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.

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.

Getting started is very easy. Just fill out this form to submit your website. If your site fits our criteria, you will receive an invitation to register. Remember, our advertisers are wanting to reach software developers. Documentation websites, blogs and online applications tend to work the best.
