FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We've compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions from our users.
How does the ShortLink service work?
ShortLink is a revolutionary new way of making money from sending people to links. If you have a popular website, a YouTube video with many views, or have a link to download a Minecraft mod from a forum, simply drop the link in the ShortLink URL shortener and get people to click on your ShortLink short URL. Once people start clicking on your short URL, you start making money!
How much will I be paid for my shortened URLs?
All of the clicks you receive on your shortened URLs are paid out according to the country each visiting user comes from. United States generally pays out the most because it is the highest quality for advertisers. You can take a look at the exact payouts on the payout rates page.
What is the minimum payment threshold for payment?
We pay our users as long as they have earned more than $5.00 since their last payment. If it is your first payment, you must earn only $5.00 first before a payout is sent. We set these minimums because of the fees associated with sending payment.
How much is withdrawal fee?
For direct bitcoin transaction, you will be charged a withdrawal transaction fee of up to 0.0005 BTC. This will be deducted from the withdrawal amount, to cover the network fee. Try to withdraw a bigger amount.
For FaucetHUB and coinbase, there is no fee. If you select coinbase as withdrawal method, then provide your coinbase email.
When are payments sent?
When your account reaches the minimum amount of 5.00$ or more, you may request your earnings by clicking the "Withdraw" button. The payment is then sent to your bitcoin wallet during business days no longer than 4 days (usually in 24 - 48 hours) after requesting. Please do not contact us regarding payments before due dates. In order to receive your payments you need to fill your payment method and payment ID here if you haven't done so. You are also requested to fill all the required fields in the Account Details section with accurate data.
Which payment methods are allowed here?
Currently we support only Bitcoin based payment methods. We pay to publisher's Bitcoin wallet. Recently we have added support for micro wallets. Now we also pay to user's FaucetHUB.io wallet.
Can I use my publisher's earnings for doing advertisement here?
Yes, you can pay for your advertising campaign from your publisher's earning. To do so you have to withdraw your earnings to "My Wallet" and have to select payment method "My Wallet" when you're going to pay for your campaign.
Can I click my own links?
Is it okay to ask people to click on my links so that I can make money?
No. It is essential that the user should click on your ShortLink links for the sole purpose of getting to the destination website and not because they were solicited or forced to do so. But currently we are allowing faucet owners to do this.
Are there any important rules about where I should not post ShortLink short URLs?
Do you have a referral program? How much does it pay?
Yes we do. For each of your Publisher referrals, we will pay you 10% of what they earn through advertising.
What happens if my account gets banned?
Why my CPM is so low?
Your CPM rate depends on many factors. There are two kind of ads, interstitial and popup. The CPM you see on your dashboard is average of interstitial and popup. Also, there are different rates for mobile and desktop devices. So, your total CPM is average of all of those factors.
