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.
- No Desktop inventory is available.
- CPA (Cost per acquisition)
Desktop, mobile and tablets.
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.
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”.
