BitterStrawberry Ad Network Review

BitterStrawberry Ad Network Review

BitterStrawberry is a mobile-only CPA network which enables publishers of all backgrounds to monetise their websites through a number of ad formats. Users can pick between popunders, banners and redirects on their way to earning good money for their traffic.
The network has a referral program offering 10% of a new publisher’s commission to the group that referred them. This could help a user reach the minimum payout of €100, available through PayPal, wire transfer and webmoney as well as a few more options.

For Mobile

  • Popunders
  • Banners
  • Redirects

  • CPA (Cost per acquisition)
  • CPC
  • CPL

Traffic Types

Payment Rules

Publishers can withdraw money from their BitterStrawberry accounts provided they have reached a minimum earning of €100. Payments are available through popular solutions like PayPal, Paxum, Payoneer, as well as through wire transfer, Bitcoins  and Webmoney.

These are delivered within 60 days of a publisher reaching the minimum of €100 at the end of a month, which leaves quite a bit of time before a user can collect their earnings. Every publisher must also send an invoice to the network before they can gain a payment.
In terms of charges, BitterStrawberry does not make a note of any fees applied to withdrawing money from an account. To work out the best option, publishers are better off consulting with Paxum and PayPal to check how much it costs to load money onto these systems. Checks should definitely be made for the charges attached to wire transfers, which can cost a lot depending on the bank being used.

Support

Our investigations found customer support from BitterStrawberry to be reliable, which can help publishers that are new to using an ad network. Skype is one method of support and can be useful for short questions that need answering quickly. There is also the option of going through one of BitterStrawberry’s personal affiliate managers, maybe for answering questions that need a bit more of an explanation.
To help publishers even more, support is available ‘24/7’ and in “multiple languages”.

Final thoughts:

BitterStrawberry is another network which offers publishers the chance to earn money from their traffic in very specific ways. It is a mobile-only platform, which is not good for drivers of desktop users. 

Beyond this, there is a more open field to explore. Publishers can monetise their traffic through popunders, banners and redirects. The customer support is very reliable and available through both Skype and the platform’s dedicated personal managers.

A minimum payout of €100 is not great, but the group does offer a referral program paying out 10% to help its users reach this target. Money is also available through a number of solutions, including PayPal, Paxum, Payoneer, webmoney, bitcoins and wire transfer, payments available weekly for good quality traffic, or bi-monthly and monthly, depending on the arrangement with the network.

For publishers with a good amount of mobile traffic, BitterStrawberry is certainly worth a look into.

  1. First time come to know about BitterStrawberry. It seems to me it doesn’t support traffic from Asia. I searched for CPM rate for Indian traffic and no data. Most of my traffic come from Asia. What do you think?

    1. BitterStrawberry has good CPM but for Asian countries. And I recommend you to try Hilltop, Reporo and Juicy.
      Also, I advise working with many ad networks at the same time – it will give you more income.
