    So I am testing out some methods to see who pays the best for a certain traffic source and I get this major discrepancy in earnings from them.

    first test showed:

    Earnings$0.975
    Impressions1,734
    Clicks0
    CPM0.562

    The next day

    Earnings$2.280
    Impressions3,150
    Clicks41
    CPM0.724

    Then I login today and see

    Earnings$0.171
    Impressions3,251
    Clicks46
    CPM0.053

    How do they think people will put up with that?

    Those look exactly like Adsense numbers to me.... One day they pay a penny per click, sometimes they pay a dollar to keep you hooked.

    I would be ok with daily earnings going up and down but not with them going back a few days later and changing the earnings!

    monthly earning estimate $2.39
    Estimate value based on current statistics rate

    It showed an estimate something like $59 a couple days ago

    Trust me this network is run by some kids. I joined them as advertiser and setup a campaign with maxbounty offer (Email submit) and they end up banning my account for policy violation and when i posted whole thing on a forum their team restored my account saying it was mistake.

    So i am sure they do shady thing pubs too.

    Hello!

    According to 4.3 of Publisher Agreement Propeller Ads is entitled to make an adjustments in Publisher’s account in the following cases:

    To pay promotions and bonuses

    Due to technical reasons

    Due to Publisher’s fraudulent activity

    On the basis of additional agreements with You

    Due to Advertiser’s complaints or refunds


    Best wishes,
    Support team

    But no mention of any wrong doing, just a blanket fuck you we do what we want

    I'd appreciate it if you shared some statistics (earnings, amount/source of traffic, CPM)
    I hope it's not much hassle!
