    What sort of rates can I get with CPMStar usually?
    I added their leaderboard and rectangle ads like 3-4 days ago and so far, this is how it looks.
    Is it normal?

    I dont think so, I haven't used them but everyone I talk to tells me great things about them. I think they are performance based though. Which might explain your issue.

    What does that mean? What kind of performance? I've placed the leaderboard ad above the fold, and 65% of my traffic is from the US.

    Yes it is performance based, but you also need to give it time to key in on your traffic here are my reports for the same period from CPMStar:

    Report for Jan 10, 2014 - Jan 13, 2014
    Impressions CTR Clicks Conv. Ratio Actionse CPM Estimated Revenue
    7,385 1.95 % 144 2.08 % 3 $1.34 $9.92

    MY CPMStar stats suck.

    But I do only send them what Google Adsense doesn't want so I assume it was mostly foreign traffic.

    Report for Jan 13, 2013 - Jan 13, 2014
    Impressions CTR Clicks eCPM Estimated Revenue
    1,372,137 0.03 % 429 $0.00 $4.54

    I noticed my stats don't show a conversions column so I assume I got none?

    @piper99 if you got 154 clicks, I recommend you try a CPC ad network as you will make more money.

    We have banner placements in the header and footer and in the side bar, we also have their video player placements (those do the best)

    We also rotate with our network and one other gaming network.

    eCpm $0.42 for this year, which is okay I guess... What is not okay is that they owe me money, and won't reply to emails... So I pulled all links, but I doubt I will ever see my money.

    They have never paid me late in over two years and they always respond, this sounds like an isolated incident, I can reach out to my AMs and pass your info along if you like... also your ecpm is very low in comparison to mine.

    Yeah, your eCPM is pretty rocking, but I'm not to sad about mine compared to OP. Glad to hear they usually pay, there might be hope for my money still.

    This is the situation:
    I had my payment options set at Wire Transfer which has a minimum payout of $1000.
    My money kept rolling over month to month, and I had about $500 in there when I thought, this is stupid I will change to Paypal, so I can get my money out.

    Instead of getting all my money I got only the last month worth (about $12).
    This could be an honest mistake, when I change my payment options, they might not look into what I had in there, I get that.

    But I have emailed nick several times, and I have sent emails to 3 other mails listed on their contact page.... NOTHING!
    And this is not something I did yesterday, and then start flaming the day after, I emailed nick last month, no word from him.

    If you have a valid contact I can try that, else if you can reach them for me I'd appreciate it :)

    I didn't received any payment for December 2015 neither they respond to my mails, on all they mail addresses.
    I should receive $1,314.19 from them.
    Are they dead or scam and I lost my money?
