MediaWhiz Launches New Ad Network – ShoppingAds
MediaWhiz has launched a new ad network called ShoppingAds. It is meant to be a replacement for AuctionAds. AuctionsAds offered CPA ads only while ShoppingAds will offer a combination of CPA and CPC ads. AuctionsAds was linked through to eBay while ShoppingAds can link to any number of advertisers. ShoppingAds will display CPC ads to site visitors from the USA while international visitors will see geo-targeted CPA ads from eBay.
Some users of AuctionAds have complained of high numbers of clicks with very a poor conversion rates. AuctionAds works best on product-related sites in specific niches (ex. baseball cards). For example, some AuctionAds users are seeing RPC as low as $0.01 to $0.02. It’s too soon to say what the overall RPC will be for ShoppingAds. However, my guess is that it will be in the $0.10 to $0.25 range. (Remember, don’t click on your own ShoppingAds or you’ll get banned in a jiffy.)
ShoppingAds pays the first of every month via Paypal only. There is a $50 minimum for earnings. They feature a 30-day cookie on all referrals.

Looking for a keyword-based ad network that works for international traffic and won’t hassle you about low site traffic? Then, give ShoppingAds a try. You’ll be glad you did!
If youâ€™re already a ShoppingAds user, or considering becoming one, you should check out emptyspaceads – turn your website’s empty space into cash (a product I left my full-time job at Microsoft to build), which allows you to put ShoppingAds units in your websiteâ€™s empty space. After all, when was the last time you made any money from your siteâ€™s empty space? Better yet, you donâ€™t have to give up any existing ad units to run emptyspaceads. Keep what works!
We hope to add more ad networks soon! You can also create your own TextAds, ImageAds, and even HTMLAds. I invite you to try it out and send your honestly brutal feedback. Thanks!
