PepperJam Quick Facts:
PepperJam's ads include regular banners, text links, pop-ups, pop-unders, video advertisements, email ads and sponsored search boxes. A big plus for the network is the extensive ad customization options it offers publishers to optimize each ad for their websites if they invest some time.
Even though PepperJam mainly offers affiliate (CPA/CPL) campaigns they do work with several affiliate and advertising partners and thus have campaigns of all kinds, including the aforementioned affiliate CPA and CPL as well as CPC and CPM banner or text link campaigns. Rates vary from campaign to campaign and are subject to advertiser offers, with some luxury and seasonal merchandise offers paying quite a lot indeed. PepperJam issues payments through PayPal, check, wire transfer and direct deposit (for non-US publishers) and use a minimum payout of $25.
Their inventory is quite extensive and also includes luxury and seasonal offers from various consumer-related niches as well as other popular products. Some campaigns can be considered "edgy", such as lingerie ad campaigns, but publishers are given full control over what ads are displayed on their websites via the network's easy-to-use dashboard. Reporting tools are equally functional and the publishers' time isn't wasted on cumbersome dashboards and bulky systems.
Support is great, as expected from a veteran ad network, live chat is available at local business hours and for everything else their tech specialists will usually reply within 24 hours. Pepperjam's official website is also great and includes useful FAQs and even an in-house glossary of commonly used terms.
Many publishers have only good things to say about PepperJam's services and inventory. PeppeJam's affiliate offers are usually compared with leading affiliate networks and their regular ads are often compared to ads from "big" ad providers such as AdSense and Chitika.
All in all, PepperJam seems like an ad network that stood the test of time for a good reason. They are reliable, pay on time and offer publishers many appealing methods to monetize their websites.
