In your opinion, what is the most dependable ad publisher network? (CPM, CPC, CPA, any!)

    Sorry to put this in the Lounge, didn't see a forum that was the most appropriate for this as they are all too specific.

    I currently am owed about $8k from various networks and most of them are currently late on payment. I realize there are logistical reasons for this (new quarter, company losses, etc) but as a publisher it sucks to be left behind after putting in the hard work. Most of my sites are purely white hat, so I don't feel I've broken any TOS anywhere.

    When I say "dependable" I mean networks that pay on time and hold up their end of the agreement, sites are always live and easy to gather reports from, that sort of stuff.

    Who has paid you on time, every time, doesn't take more than 30 days to pay, doesn't shave, and are always responsive to your communications?

    For me, obviously Google pays out every time on time (except when you get banned, which sucks). Tribal Fusion has never let me down though. Adversal is another one I use just for proxies, stuff like that. CPM is not very high but they still pay 100% of the time. (So far)

    Adsense fits into the category of "non-dependable" since they are hard to communicate with and you never know if/when you're going to get banned with no recourse, not to mention their ever fluctuating algorithms and smart pricing with no explanation. They are shady!

    I will check out Adversal, never heard of them.

    Absolutely yes, they are shady. I have been banned without reasoning for white hat tactics etc. Like I said Adversal don't pay the best but they pay on time, everytime.

    What is their support like? Do you speak with your AM ever? And do they offer ACH payments? And how often do they pay?

    Adversals support is OK. No, they do not have an account manager. No, they only offer payments Via Check, Paypal or Bank Wire.

    They pay every 30 days. Adversal isn't the biggest advertising company, but they pay on time everytime. It is worth checking out.

    Best of luck!
