Today I have a very interesting article to share with you. A lot of my readers come back to Stream SEO because we write a lot of guides, reviews and case studies about monetization methods for your traffic. But today we’re going to review Adcash – one of the top networks that have been in the industry for over 12 years and a ton of publishers use them to make huge amounts of money. Plus, they have just released their referral program – refer new publishers to Adcash and earn 5% of their lifetime earnings.
Recently I was contacted by one of their managers and I decided to work with them as a publisher to check out their system and give my opinion about it. So, let’s start with the Adcash review!
Adcash was founded in 2007 by a small group of entrepreneurs in Tallinn, Estonia. They have grown to a team of 100 across 3 different countries. They offer many tools and features to make monetization easy. Their multilingual account managers are always hands-on and help you make the most of their platform and unlock exclusive features tailored to your needs.
Adcash offers monetization solutions for publishers of any size or any country. They have worldwide campaigns across 196 countries, allowing you to monetize your traffic pretty much everywhere in the world. This is important as many publishers have trouble finding a good monetization for their tier 3 traffic websites. Also, both mobile and desktop traffic can be monetized with Adcash.
Creating a Publisher’s account in Adcash
Creating an account with Adcash is quite straightforward. You’ll need an email and a website with traffic to get approved. That’s it. Go to this link and sign up with your email. After a few minutes, you’ll receive a confirmation email to validate your account.
After that, you will be asked to enter your website’s address and select the ad format that you would like to create the tag (zone) for (you can create as many as you wish):
Adcash Review – Recommended Ad Types (Zones)
For those who are new to this, Adcash not only has the classic banner ads, but they also offer interstitials, pop-unders, push notifications and native ads. So, you could choose the best ad format for your audience.
Adcash has been a leader in the pop-under ads industry so you can’t go wrong with those if your site fits this type of advertisement, however, if you have mobile traffic you should definitely try interstitial ads as well. They are full-screen ads that have less impact on the user experience whilst offering a great monetization opportunity and high eCPMs for publishers. There’s a new cool feature available where you as a webmaster can select when you want to show the interstitial ads to make the user experience less intrusive.
Also, Adcash started offering push notification ads lately and the performance is quite good. Push notifications have been a trend in the last 2-3 years but many networks still don’t offer push ads. Push ads are a great way to monetize your traffic without having banners all the time. This type of ad also gets along very well with other ads like the ones shown by Google Adsense.
And yes, you can use Adcash ads along with Google Adsense as long as you follow the rules and don’t abuse the user experience showing too many ads.
If you need suggestions about the type of ad that performs better for your traffic or niche, you should definitely contact Adcash and their expert team will give you the best suggestions to go along with your site.
Some of the niches I’ve seen performing really well with Adcash are:
- All types of mobile apps (work very well with Interstitial ads)
- Software (browser extensions and VPNs)
- Finance (crypto, binary options, and loans)
- Coupons and sweepstakes
- Sports (maybe not so much during the COVID-19 outbreak)
- Blogs/viral websites (native ads)
After you create your ad (zone) and link it to your website you will need to copy and paste a code into the <body> of your website and you’re good to go. Additionally, you need to download a quick file and add it to the root of your domain. This is a common practice nowadays as other networks like Google Adsense or Infolinks already ask for this in order to maximize your earnings.
One last thing I should mention about Adcash is that they work mainly with mainstream traffic. But if you do have adult content, you should contact them first so they can set up an account specifically for that purpose.
After this basic setup you’ll be able to log in and check out your Dashboard:
Here you can modify your user settings, create new ads, add new sites and also select your payment method. And since we are talking about payments…
Adcash Payment Methods & Proof of Payment
Adcash offers a plethora of payment methods for everybody so you don’t have to worry about getting paid.
PayPal, Bank wires, Bitcoin, Payoneer, Skrill, and WebMoney are available for you to draw your funds, and the minimum payout is $25 except for bank wires which have a minimum of $100 to be paid.
Commissions are usually paid on a NET 30+ basis and you can request payment the following month. For example, if you make $1000 during March, then you can request your payment on 1-10 April and you will receive your payment in early May. You can also set up auto-billing so this happens every month or just request the payments manually whenever you want if you prefer to wait for more than that.
Here’s also a payment proof from Adcash, so you can be sure that you’ll receive your money on time whatever payment method you wish to use.
Also, if you’re a publisher with big volumes of traffic you can make an agreement to get paid every 2 weeks or even weekly as Adcash is pretty flexible with that. This is something you don’t get with many networks no matter how big they are sometimes.
Adcash Review Conclusions
There you have it. Adcash is a great option to monetize your traffic if you are in the right niche. You can use banners or native ads in case you run blogs, or interstitial and push notifications if the majority of your traffic comes from mobile devices.
Or you can always get back to the classic pop ads if you want maximum performance and other ad types don’t work for you. Since Adcash has inventory in 196 countries available to monetize and they have a ton of payment options Adcash is a great network to work with and start making money online!
