AdsPipe.net Review

AdsPipe.net Logo

AdsPipe.net is an average-sized ad network that delivers more than 2 billion impressions each month and is one of over a hundred such programs we review on experienced-people.co.uk.

The network serves mainly pop-ups and graphic banners in five typical sizes; nothing extraordinary. AdsPipe.net has a relatively small number of advertisers and a rather limited mainstream ad inventory. However, their inventory accepts adult websites and serves adult-themed advertisements and they have an extensive (non-exclusive) adult ads inventory. The network's infrastructure is OK and they are partnered with OpenX for their ad serving and software management.

AdsPipe.net works with standard CPM commissions, with rates usually ranging from $0.10 to $1.50 per thousand impressions. They pay through PayPal, check, wire or Money Bookers with a minimum payout of $100. AdsPipe.net shares 80% of ad revenue with publishers and pays on a NET 30 schedule.

Control tools are just average as are reporting options. A handful of useful stats are updated every 24 hours and publishers are given limited control over the displayed ads and the campaigns in general.

There have been significant problems with many publishers not being paid by AdsPipe.net, leading in bad publicity and several accusations that AdsPipe.net is just scam. Even though they might not be the "biggest scam" they have indeed not paid many publishers on occasion, removing them from the network instead. Additionally, their support and sales representatives have, at times, been spectacularly offensive (F-word and all that!) and have definitely contributed to the network's bad reputation.

All in all, AdsPipe.net is a plain average CPM network that only stands out for their bad publicity and the widespread problems with payment. They support limited ad types, their inventory is largely adult-oriented and their CPM rates are just average. Working with AdsPipe.net really seems like a risky choice.
