Taboola is asking for 20% of monthly earnings for "reinvestment"?

    I applied for Taboola, and they want me to sign a 2-year contract that has a 20% monthly "reinvestment" clause.

    Meaning that out of my monthly earnings, I will be forced to use 20% on Taboola Advertising (every month). So, basically I get 80% of my actual earnings.

    This doesn't sound great. Anyone have opinions on this? Would it still be worth it?

    (I have around 700k monthly pageviews and currently use Content.ad for display ads)

    Lets say you make $5,000 per month, can you afford to lose $1,000 and what do you actually get in return for them taking a percentage?
    If you don't get anything id tell them to get lost. If they don't like it then find another PPC company to work with, plenty out there.

    It's your money, only you can decide.

    Have you tried speaking to some other networks so you have leverage? 700k pageviews is low for Taboola (a few years ago their minimum was 10m pageviews a month), so that might be why. I usually use this site when looking for new ad networks to try: http://monetizepros.com/reviews/ad-networks/

    They said they could remove the clause after I asked. They were just trying to be sneaky.

    But I'm not going to use them anyway, found a better deal elsewhere.
