My Experience with Media.net
Till now it has been a very good journey with Media.net. In the starting, I refrained to use them as it was new to me and used it only on a few website with low traffic to test but then also it performed quite well for me.
But after sometime, I implemented the code on one of my high traffic website and the results were very surprising. Till now I was loosing potential earning from not using Media.net network on my websites.
Below is the performance graph for my account. In the mid January 2016, I added one Media.net Ad unit on my high traffic website and it gave great result with good revenue and within few weeks only I was eligible for payment as my revenue increase steadily.
What most I like about them is the dedicated account manager, which keeps in-touch with you time to time and you can also directly email them for any query and concern. Till now all my query has been resolved over email, so I can say that their support is quick and helpful.
The Payment threshold for Media.net is $100 and once you have reached that mark you will receive your money if you have filled “Payout Settings” details. It’s not a hoax as they really pay you money. Below is the payment proof of Media.net from my February 2016 earning.
You can receive payments through PayPal and wire transfer easily. Also, if you need to change your payment method just contact your dedicated account manager and he/she will help you out.
