Publisher Earnings & Payments F.A.Q.

UPDATED: Apr 04, 2017 11:17AM PDT

1. What payment model do you use?

AdColony sells advertising in a variety of ways including CPM, CPI and CPCV (Cost Per Completed View). Earnings are converted to an eCPM figure in your publisher portal.

2. What eCPMs can I expect?

Different campaigns with varying duration, value, volume and targeting are all factors that can affect your eCPM. Daily fluctuation is a common occurrence in any ad network. Generally, you can expect to be on the higher end of the average network range if your users are located in mostly English speaking territories such as the US.

3. What are your payment terms?

AdColony issues monthly Publisher checks on a net 60 day basis. For example, for earnings accrued in August, we will issue a check in November. Payment can be received via check, PayPal, wire transfer, or ACH payments for domestic partners. For international partners, we offer PayPal or wire transfer. AdColony does not charge any transaction fees for payments, but you will need to check with your bank regarding additional transaction fees.

4. Does AdColony have a minimum payout amount?

AdColony requires that you accrue a balance of $100 before receiving payment. If your monthly payment does not meet this amount, we will roll it over into the next month's payment until it exceeds $100. This minimum applies for all payment methods.

In order to receive payment, you must thoroughly fill out your current contact information in your Profile including email address, mailing address, company name and payment method.

U.S. Publishers must submit a W-9 form for processing.

International Publishers must submit a W8-BEN form for processing.

6. Why is payment posted to my account before the end of the month?

Payment will be posted up to one week earlier on the dashboard before the payout date but the actual transaction will happen at the end of the month. Please allow 5-7 days for processing and an additional 3-5 days if your preferred payment method is PayPal.
