Disclosure: This is an update of a post we first did a few years ago, this current version has the most up-to-date information on the best adult ad networks we work with.

Exoclick

Exoclick offers lower minimum payouts than some of its competitors (20 EUR/USD for Paxum, Cryptocurrency, and 200 EUR/USD for Wire transfer) and at a weekly or monthly frequency.

There are plenty of ad format options to choose from, with native advertising, instant messaging, in-stream, and pre-video inventory acting as luxuries on top of regular offerings like banners and pop-unders.

Much like every other network, Exoclick accepts desktop and mobile traffic via a CPM model. Overall, for those favoring a strong, well-rounded service, it’s a good place to start.

Pros:

  • Works with clean ads with no malware or viruses
  • Weekly payouts
  • Offers one of the biggest on the market inventory for adult traffic
  • CPM rates are great

Cons:

  • You can reach their support team only via email

TrafficStars

TrafficStars is another publisher-oriented self-service ad network. In short, it seems to have everything any publisher would need to run a successful ad campaign. There are detailed and real-time statistics and compliant ads. Their automatic payouts have the minimum threshold of $100 for credit card, Paxum, and CoinGate and $500 for Wire transfer.

Their choice of ad formats is great: banners, native ads, various video formats, classic push, in-page push, full-screen interstitial, popunders, and targeted clicks.

Besides, TrafficStars has a 100% fill rate and excellent CPM rates.

Pros:

  • A self-service platform
  • Offers a personal account manager for EVERY client
  • Works with adult traffic
  • Supports a wide range of ad formats

Cons:

  • No referral program 
  • The minimum payout is $100

TwinRed

Previously known as DoublePimp, TwinRed is home to some of the highest CPMs in the adult niche. However, some publishers may be put off by the lack of a referral program and not an exquisite range of ad types. Though the later is subjective. The formats TwinRed offers include video pre-rolls, popunders, display ads, native ads, push notifications, and full-page interstitials.

Their minimum payout is set at $50 for Paxum, $100 for PayPal, and $500 for Wire transfer or ACH.

Pros:

  • The highest CPM rates in the adult niche
  • Reliable support via Skype

Cons:

  • Tags are provided by anyone but the manager
  • No referral program

Adsterra

When it comes to service and reliability Adsterra seems like a good option. Unfortunately, their minimum payout for the most popular payment methods is a rather hefty sum of $100 for Bitcoin, PayPal, and Tether and $1000 for Wire transfer. There’s a $5 minimum payout for WebMoney and Paxum though. 

Format-wise Adsterra offers popunder, social bar, push and native ads, video formats, and banners. They support monetization of any type of traffic: desktop and mobile website traffic, social and mobile app traffic. And they cover over 248 GEOs.

Overall, AdSterra is a great network, but it suits better those publishers who have more experience and have a well-tried earning strategy.

Pros:

  • You can request back URLs for unsold traffic
  • Great CPM rates
  • Their support team works round the clock
  • Detailed real-time statistics

HilltopAds

HilltopAds used to be different from many of their competitors because they only dealt with popunders. Nowadays, however, they have the full set of formats on offer, including push notifications, direct links, video formats, native ads, and banners.

The minimum payout at HilltopAds is $10 for Paxum, Capitalist, ePayService, PayPal, USDT, Webmoney, $50 for Bitcoin, and $1.000 for Wire transfer. The timing of the payouts can seem a bit confusing though, they pay weekly with a 7-day hold system. This means that if you start selling on 1st day of the month, your first payout will be on the 14th, but you will receive payment for the first 7 days. Your next payment will be on the 21st and you will receive payment for the period of 8th – 14th. And so on. 

Pros:

  • Great CPM rates
  • Prompt support is available via Skype
  • Weekly payments

Cons:

  • All changes in ad campaigns are made through managers, no self-service is provided

TrafficForce

TrafficForce is another network that has a rather high minimum payout threshold. But they have an interesting set of payment options. By default, they offer Paxum, Credit card (Stripe), and Wire Payments. And you can request PayPal, Crypto (Coinpayments), or Alipay. The minimum payouts are $50 for PayPal, Paxum, Alipay, and credit card, 100$ for Coinpayments (USDT TRC20, ERC20, and USDC), and $1,000 for Wire transfers.

Format-wise they offer various video formats, popunders, push notifications, banners, and regular display ads. 

Their general level of support and fill rates are lower than we’d prefer. But their self-service panel is a great tool.

Pros:

  • Excellent CPM rates for pop-unders and banners
  • Back URLs for unsold traffic
  • You can Skype with the support team if necessary

Cons:

  • The fill-rate leaves much to be desired
  • High withdrawal threshold
  • No referral program is available

JuicyAds

Heading up the list of benefits for JuicyAds is their referral program which offers a 20% commission for publishers who get others to sign up. This could be a key differentiating factor along with minimum payouts of $25. 

Here’s the detailed info on the payouts: a minimum of $25 for digital payments (PayPal/Paxum/ePayService), $100 for ACH payments, and $500 for wire transfer. Delivered on request or via an auto-payment set up by you. 

The ad formats JuicyAds offers are limited to banner ads, native advertising, and popunders.

Pros:

  • If you have traffic from Asia or Russia, they can offer you good CPM rates
  • Back URLs for unsold traffic
  • Self-service program, you are in charge of all ad campaigns
  • Low payout threshold
  • Quite beneficial referral program (20% from their commission)

Cons:

  • Support only by email
  • It can be hard to get a grasp of their admin panel
  • If you work with banner ads, do not expect great CPM

Clickaine

Clickaine is one of the best solutions for publishers who seek a comfortable and easily manageable self-service ad network. Above all, it is safe and transparent. Besides, they have excellent CPM rates and offer their clients constant personal support.

The range of formats they offer is impressive: native ads, banners, push notifications, in-page pushes, in-stream and out-stream videos, in-banner videos, full-page interstitials, popunders, skims, and tabs.

Another advantage of this network – you have full control over the ad campaigns, you can easily block unwanted buyers, and control the price of your traffic.

Clickaine makes payouts 3 times per week by any payment network. But the minimum payout sum is $100. 

Overall, we’d say Clickaine is a great option if you know exactly what you’re doing.

Pros:

  • Excellent CPM rates
  • A self-serve platform 
  • Great tech support
  • Adult-friendly

Cons:

  • The referral program offers only 3%
  • $100 minimum payout

Clickadu

Clickadu is another good option for smaller sites looking for a steady network. For one thing, it works with a wide range of ad formats: banners, popunders, push notifications, in-page push, instant messages, video ads, and skim. 

Clickadu’s minimum payout is $50 for Webmoney, PayPal, and Paxum and $1000 for Wire transfer. 

Pros:

  • Good for smaller publishers
  • Support via Skype and email
  • Above-average fill rates
  • Referral program

Cons:

  • Low fill-rate
  • Generally low CPM rates
  • Resells traffic to other ad networks

Trafficshop

Trafficshop is a great choice if you have a decent desktop traffic amount, their CPM rates for this type are great. Of course, both your desktop and mobile traffic is good for Trafficshop, just the rates are better for desktop. 

The best thing about Trafficshop is the attention they pay to the quality of their ads. They are using multiple 3rd party tools to check the offers, so you would never get an aggressive, malicious, or scammy ad from them.

The range of supported ad formats is great too: banners, popunders, various video formats, text ads, rich media, interstitials, and redirects. 

The minimum payout is $50 paid on request to PayPal, Paxum, Payoneer, Credit Card, Bitcoin, or Wire transfer.

 

Pros:

  • good CPM rates for desktop traffic
  • back URLs for unsold traffic
  • no aggressive ads
  • payouts are delivered on request

Cons:

  • minimum payout of $50

    Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hi my website kamukkissa.com is based on adult hindi sex story. Exoclick closed my account without any prior notice. I was about to reach my payment threshold. There may be couple of reason. If the account does not meet their guideline then they must check it earlier. I would say that Exoclick is worst. Users be careful you may loose your earning. Juicy ads is good but their CPM is less even though it is better than Exoclick.

  26. Hi Adspyglass.com Team

    I am using traffic factory for my websites (www.orabellz.com)(www.arabictimegold.com) but user count was low i want a company like you to help us to take services from above mentioned platforms. We will happy to pay the service charges if you help in our company’s promotion in adult industry.

    Exoclick is NOT worthy. They taken my all earnings withought prior notice. They deactivated my account withought any prior notice. I think I used more banners or there may be some ad units which were not being used. I don’t know the exact reason why they deactivated my account. Never choose Exoclick. Also admin of this page is requested to Move exoclick to the down in its list.

    Any of these ad companies offer older men ads? I have a Tube that is in the older men niche and most ads offered are of younger guys.

  31. Stumbled across this article as very recently I dived into the Adult Tube industry. Being a newbie I am trying to read as much content as possible. One problem I am finding is that I have an older men niche and most ads offered are of young guys…it sort of clashes with my niche. Do you know if any Adult Ad Companies offer ads that are related to older men?

    • Hi iwas thinking best network wich i can choose , adspyglass is better

  32. trafficjunky.com payout is too slow and user support is not user friendly.

      23.08.2017 - 08:30

      Hi Maddy!
      Every ad networks has its own pros and cons. It depends on many factors. What is your GEO?
      Ad Networks with popunders – you can always check current Top CPM Ad Networks with popunders by countries here: https://www.adspyglass.com/best-ad-networks. For example, yesterday highest CPM for popunder had:
      – BitterStrawberry.org ($1.51),
      – PopAds.net ($1.24),
      – TrafficShop.com ($0.96)
      – and AdsTerra ($0.93).

      You can see pros and cons (min payouts and etc.) in that link too.

      If you work with them with AdSpyglass — traffic can be automatically moved to networks with highest CPM.

  39. Reporo is now fully self serve!

  40. Tested all of these network on my main site videoitaliani.net and other 20 on my network, all works, but exoclick pay better and in EURO. Testing Hiltop ads since once week and i’m pretty happy for the moment. Important at the moment is that they implement a reliable, antiadblock solution.

  41. I think I should use Juicyads or Plugrush for my site. I monetize my twitter traffic with Juicyads and Plugrush and I get like $3 for every 1k visitors from twitter.

  42. Exoclick has automated website approval I think. What I most like about them is they are already trying to make their network better. Recently they changed their admin panel which tells publisher how much will we earn this month. It is a great way to get a clear idea. I am still happy with its performance.
