FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We've compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions from our users.
How does the AdFoc.us service work?
AdFoc.us is a revolutionary new way of making money from sending people to links. If you have a popular FaceBook or Twitter profile and you discover an interesting article, simply drop the link in the AdFoc.us URL shortener and send the AdFoc.us shortened URL to your friends. 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 $10.00 since their last payment. If it is your first payment, you must earn $10.00 first before a payout is sent. We set these minimums because of the fees associated with sending payment.
When are payments sent?
Currently, we payout users on a month-to-month basis. We calculate earnings from the previous month (short URL earnings + referral commissions) and update your "Account Balance" (on the "Payment History" tab). On the 7th of the month, you can click the "Payment History" tab while logged in to check the status of your payment or request a payment. You must request a payment in order to be paid. It can take up to 72 hours from the time you request payment to see the money in your PayPal or Payza account.
What is the policy on duplicate IP visitors?
In order to maintain high quality traffic for our advertisers and keep our payout rates as high as possible, we have to pay less for duplicate IP visitors. We made an important announcement about our payout rate policy for duplicate IP visits in our forum - "Unique / Duplicate IP Earnings Information". If you are sending a lot of traffic that includes duplicate visits from the same IP, it is important to take this into consideration.
Can I click my own links?
Whenever a click on your link is counted, it is first checked as a fraudulent click. A fraudulent click may include; a click from your home IP address, a click from an IP address in which your account has been logged in with, clicks from proxies, clicks from bots, clicks from automated software, and/or any other type of click we determine as fraudulent. The traffic we send to our advertisers needs to be high quality and we have performance metrics built into our system to track all of our users. Traffic that is deemed as fraudulent is not of good quality and can result in a ban. We try to be as fair as possible to our users and advertisers! To read more, visit our terms and conditions page.
