    I done abit searching around, i can't seem to find a "review" type thread for this. Well anyway ive been using this Publishing network for almost 6 weeks now. Im just looking for opinions from others who have used this. From my own experience.

    I used this network, due to

    1) Not requiring alot of personal detail, infact it requires ZERO
    2) It pays out via Paypal

    Now i was looking for a alternative CPM network to Adsense, at first i was very disappointed, CPM rates was like 0.05$ which way too low. But e-mailed and they advised me to use 1 300x250 ad banner, and my earnings would increase alot.

    My CPM rate is now at between 0.20$ to even $1 which im happy with atm. They count all impressions which what attracted me.

    I will say the interface to check your stats and earnings is not very good imo, you can't even see a total for your earnings. It's split into months/days so you have to add it all together if earned over sep months.

    Min payout is $100

    Now regarding payout, ive just hit my $100 target and asked for more detail on payout as not clear how it works. First of all they said NET60 days which astounding me, given they payout via paypal, why so long ?

    This they couldn't explain, anyway then got another e-mail saying sorry was wrong, it's NET40 days. But i wanted specific dates when payments issued and when i will get it.

    Im still trying to gather this information, but i THINK, they pay on 20th of each month and you suppose to get it on 10th of next month. As i say still asking for clarification on this. My experience so far

    +
    Good CPM rates with 300x250 banner
    All impressions counted
    Payments via paypal
    Your own personal account manager if got any issues(contact via msn, e-mail, phone etc..)

    -
    Poor interface and confusing
    No clear word on payouts


    Has anyone got a payout from them, im not too worried, but im just confused on the dates ive been given.

    At the moment i would issue people to be careful, im very unhappy regarding response to do with payments.

    5 days ago i asked for help when i would be paid, and at time i could not read the reply i got. Anyway turns out she said 10th of May, but it would only calculate earnings from april but i would get it very quickly via paypal. well i had only earned $25 in april, and that was no where near the 100 min payout. why would it only calculate aprils and not mays also.

    anyway i asked again today(10th of may) she now telling me 10th of june, and it would be done via paypal and clears quickly.

    Im now waiting for a reply why the dates have changed. im not happy they owe me $180. hopefully just a misunderstanding......

    IF i get paid i won't be using them in future due to this hassle.

    there are many other sites which are paying more faster, so if you really don't want such hassle, than you could choose them

    The CPM is paying very well, almost $1 recently, but on average now between 0.40-0.80$

    someone said before $100.
    Please if anyone get paid from them post a payment proof. My eCPM is $1.73 which is unbelievable amazing. I'll post tonight the last earning stats so all can get an idea of how much can earn with this.
    Thanks

    @boy_lx84 they have more video ads than banner ads so they are paying more in video views than clicks, thats why :)

    @boxingguru Thanks

    I believe its actually supposed to be vtr not ctr ;)

    Minimum payment is £100 for paypal or $300 for bank transfer. I have not personally received a payment as of yet as i only started using them around the 19th april. I am due a payment from them on the 10th june for my april earnings, as soon as i get this i will post here ;)

    They do vary day by day, some days you can get nearly $3 cpm and other days $0.20 cpm

    After your first pay .... they will change cpm algorithms to your account and you will get $0.01 ecpm values...
    Better to get rid of them....

    wow is that true ? If so they are pretty stupid. Why they pay first and then lower the ecpm to next to nothing ? Why didn't they do it before so no one can reach the payment
