Transparent and Open
The code behind most other ad networks is proprietary and complex. Instead, we are completely transparent in how our advertising works.
Invested in Open Source
EthicalAds is itself open source software. We're the only open source ad network on the market. And we're growing.
Open source projects use EthicalAds
EthicalAds came from our work monetizing Read the Docs, an open source documentation building and hosting platform. We wanted an open, transparent ad network that respected privacy, but there wasn't an ad network out there willing to work with us on those terms (we looked). Instead, we built our own and it's used by lots of open source projects and sites.
How can I be paid?
We support monthly payment via PayPal, Open Collective, and bank transfer (Stripe connect). Our minimum payment to publishers is $50, as which point we'll process a payment to you. See our full Payout Policy for more detail.
How much will I make?
Revenue will vary based on the location of your audience. Generally publishers see around $2.00 per 1,000 pageviews (CPM), assuming a majority US and European traffic.
