    I am sorry for being "dead" for quite a while as someone called it. I am around, just very overworked.
    PayPal payments go out every day. There were 2 days of delay in Payoneer as we ran out of funds due to bank transfer to Payoneer being slow. It has happened in the past too (we always go low on funds like on Thursday and then banks do not work during weekends).
    Wire transfers were delayed due to my travels(and only I can issue bank transfers), I am really sorry for that. Right now wires are processed as usual.

    PopAds is still working as it was, although rates are not amazing (we have crappy year + summer when rates are always lower). Quite many of our long term advertisers stopped operation this year, we even have few advertisers with VIP accounts that not only did not pay their NET terms invoices but even attempted to charge back all their deposits from last few months.
    Yet of course I am not charging it back from publishers.

    Good news is that Google/BetterAds crap is still blind and as far as I know nobody got blocked. Bad news is that I do not think that popunder code is ever coming back again and in incoming Chrome version they will screw tabunder (which due to iframing, many publishers do not like anyway).

    Regarding blocking websites for traffic anomalies, please email support, my employee will help in most cases. I am working hard right now to retire the anomaly detection system as it is now and migrate to the new fraud detection system I have been working on for like 2 years now.

    Welcome back @tomksoft

    Regarding what I had read here, never got any issues with payments, always on time and paid when I request for

    The only concern is about malware ads and lately a bunch of AV displaying a virus warning on any page using the adblock pass code as I had mentioned before

    These are not malware ads. This is some dumb antivirus that considers everything from freshly registered domains malicious.
    We change domains sometimes 10 times in one day, there is no way for antivirus to scan/detect/blacklist our domains instantly.
    Let alone the fact that we serve exactly same ads through serve.popads.net that is not blocked...

    What is even worse, I can't report "false positive" because when they check it, the domain is already decomissioned and we use new ones...

    For now, there are no issues. We do not plan on closing.

    @tomksoft
    Well, I saw this on kaspersky and avast....
    not tested on other AV, but I believe the same applies to other too...
    Both has a huge amount of customers, I dont thing this is something irrelevant.. maybe you guys can look at closer... I saw many companies bypassing adblock wihout these warnings on them

    Edit: forgot to mention..... this only happens with Adblock + one of these AV
    If the adblock is disabled, the AV dont catch the domain/code/js as a malware

    Maybe popads can evolve for the future and make push ads witch can link at onesignal,etc accounts.
    I think this is the future for everyone and the push ads will be less annoying then pops or new tabs.
    Our bounce rate will go down, rank higher, no ads on clicking the website, more beautiful ads in push, etc.

    Fees:
    - $3.00 for local bank transfer (in 80+ countries)
    - $15.00 for international wire transfer (worldwide)

    Why this on earth still having fees to withdraw to Payoneer! Earning $3 takes at least 30K page view! Remember, we share revenuer with you Mr. Tom

    I have doubt that popads.net doesn't count all of my traffic. I saw for myself almost always popup working. I check from Google Analytics, Google Adsense & Jetpack counter they showing at least 3 or 4 times what show in popads.net

    For example, in Google Adsense yesterday impression was 4.07k, Jetpack showing 6.6k+, in Analytics 3.5k+ BUT in popads.net showing 1,196 exactly! Rate is $0.21

    Is it normal? I have a big suspect about visitor counting! Sorry Tom, please reply me and others experienced popup ads publisher users too. Thank you so much in advance

    Still trying to do something with this...

    This is not really a way to go. I was the first in the industry to actually investigate it and test it.
    Yet, I decided not to go for it. Why?
    Push ads are getting insanely abused right now by most of websites. This results in two things:
    - When I was doing my first tests on push ads a year ago, I was easily getting $2-$3 CPM on push ads displays(US traff). As far as I know, it is around $0.10 CPM now. Market got over saturated, users too annoyed with too many push ads everywhere.
    - As it gets progressively abused, I am expecting chrome to eventually do something about it. I am guessing that will happen sooner than later.

    We are monitoring system 24/7. If something goes wrong, we get it fixed as soon as possible.

    I will be processing all pending wires shortly, sorry for the delay.

    All Payoneer fees are charged by Payoneer, not by us. I do not have any control over these fees.

    Glad to hear that, but read my previous reply. That does not depend on me, all fees are charged by Payoneer and do not depend on us.

    Not sure what code you are talking about. Please PM me details.

    You can't compare analytics or adsense with PopAds. We only count opened popups/popunders (so, visitor cannot be using VPN, has to be real human, has to click anywhere on your website etc.), while analytics and adsense just count whatever hit they get from you.

    Yeah, rates are bad. We are in summer-rate of a bad rates year.

    Please try now.

    Unless you know PHP, I'd advise against doing that. You are at risk of breaking your Wordpress installation.
