FPCTraffic Ad Network Review
FPCTraffic is a CPM ad network offering adult publishers the chance to monetise both their mobile and desktop traffic. The network has over 20 years of experience in helping people make the most of the visitors to their sites, with no minimum levels of traffic required to get started.
New users should be aware that popunders are the only available ad type, while each publisher earning money through the platform must generate at least $50 to withdraw their funds. These are available through Paxum, PayPal and Payoneer, as well as by wire transfer.
CPM (Cost per Mile)
Desktop, mobile and tablets.
Publishers can withdraw money from their FPCTraffic account provided they have earned at least $50. This is available on a monthly basis, processed in US dollars, with payments made on the 10th of each month. To give an idea of how this works, if a publisher reaches their $50 minimum by the end of August, they will receive their money on September 10.
PayPal, Paxum or Payoneer can be used to withdraw money and there is no sign of charges for processing any amounts. Instead, publishers should look out for charges by the platforms themselves. There is also the option of withdrawing money through wire transfer, although FPCTraffic does say that only ‘large publishers’ may use this service, maybe due to extra charges on these transactions.
Support from the FPCTraffic team can be gained through two methods: email and Skype. In all cases, the Skype option is best used when the question needs to be answered quickly. For something that needs a bit more explaining and can wait a little longer for an answer, the email might be a good choice.
Terms, Conditions, and Other Notes:
The big thing to note from FPCTraffic’s terms of service is that only adult publishers are allowed, but gay sites are not able to use the platform. There are other terms which sites should be aware of, including:
- A ban on traffic generated by pages containing viruses, spyware, adware and any software used to boost its figures.
- All traffic has to be sent by an adult host and not by a free host (Geocities, Tripod etc).
- Only one account per person or company.
- English is the only language supported by FPCTraffic and the network reserves the right to exclude paying webmasters from “certain countries”. Investigations suggest these include Pakistan, India, Vietnam, Korea, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan.
- Sites linking to illegal practices like hacking and incest are not allowed. Publishers are advised to consult with the FPCTraffic terms for a full list of banned content and phrases.
Any publishers that violate these terms will see their account deleted, while any site that does not use their account for 30 days faces the same penalty. Sites that have their accounts deleted can only collect outstanding funds provided they are over $10.

FPCTraffic could be a good option for any publisher that attracts a certain type of web user to their properties. The platform only supports adult sites but does not allow any gay sites to sign up. There is also the fact that popunders are the only ad type available, which narrows things down even more.
Away from these very specific terms, the platform offers some very familiar features when it comes to things like payments (Paxum, PayPal, Payoneer and wire) and support (email and Skype). These help to balance out some of the negative points, such as CPMs that go below the market average and fill rates below 50%.
Considering both the pros and cons, FPCTraffic appears to be a steady platform for sites which attract a great deal of adult traffic.
