Adbrite.com Shutting Down?

    Just received this email...

    Dear adBrite Publisher,

    Over the last few weeks, adBrite and its management have been evaluating the go-forward plan for the business. Given market conditions and certain financial liabilities, in working with our lenders, we have decided to cease operations on Feb 1, 2013.

    This is a difficult decision for all of us at adBrite. However, after much deliberation this seems to be the best course of action despite the impact it will have on all the employees, clients and partners who helped build this business. There will be a team in place as needed to assist with winding down.
    Thank you for being part of the adBrite community.
    The adBrite Team

    Can some other adbrite affiliates confirm this?

    I received that email too. It's really sad to hear that they are shutting down. I have been earning with them for some quite years not and still have a remaining $50 with them. I also sent an email to them asking what will happen the the remaining balance on my account. Hope they reply soon!

    Yep, they're shutting down: http://www.technouz.com/829/adbrite-ceases-operations-1st-feb-2013/

    I have a feeling they won't be paying out. There are some other posts on this forum where users have suggested they havent been paid out. My last payment was Nov 2012 and since then I have earned $134. They were never my #1 monetization platform so fortunately for them i'm not too bothered.

    For those of you that was using blacklabelads (including myself). JuicyAdsis the best option since adbrite/blacklabelads is shuting down.

    I had the email from Clicksore trying to capitalize on the closure by grabbing the fall out.

    Anyone who knows will avoid Clicksor

    As someone only using blacklabelads, I didn't get any email or anything...
    I have around 200$ in my account, is there any chance i'll ever be getting it or should I just get some beers and move on?
