3 Key Publisher Payment Questions

Sep 16, 2014 in News

Today we would like to clarify several most frequently asked questions that are of persisting concern to every our publisher.

What are your payment terms?

A publisher’s payment is calculated on Revenue Share basis. It means, that you receive a percentage of cost-per-thousand impressions or cost-per-click paid by advertisers. Payment rates vary for each traffic generating website and depend on its quality and ad campaign performance.

Reports are being updated once per 24 hours in your personal account. You can monitor paid impressions, clicks, referral earnings, total revenue and status of payments.

Does it happen that you don’t pay out publisher’s earnings?

All our publishers are paid in full and on time. However, it should be noted that mentioned payments are subject to the audit at the end of the month.

Fidelity Media reserves the right not to pay publishers, which have been implicated in fraudulent activity. As detailed in our Terms and Conditions, such acts include:

  • clicks from non-approved root URLs,
  • clicks without referring URLs,
  • extraordinary high numbers of repeat clicks,
  • extraordinary high CTR,
  • high numbers of impressions served from the same IP address,
  • other facts which might be considered as non-human behaviour.

When do I receive my earnings?

We would like to recall that Fidelity Media works under the most common Net 45 payment model. Essentially, it means that publisher’s payments are issued 45 business days after the end of the calendar month when revenue was generated. In practice, if you implemented Fidelity Media’s tags and started running banner ads in the middle of September than a full amount of payments for your September activity should be received on or about Halloween. Anyway, you can always check your Payout Status. Please let us know, if you have any queries.

More detailed information of publisher’s payment terms can be found on Terms and Conditions page.
