Pulse360 Quick Facts:
Pulse360 supports CPC and CPA campaigns. Their CPC campaigns are run through sponsored text links and banners of various formats and sizes, while the network offers a broad array of solutions for serving their CPA campaigns.
CPA campaigns include pop-ups, email advertisements and various banners and text link ad units. Their performance-based inventory includes several exclusive offers and Pulse360 is partnered with big names such as MSNBC, Weather.com, Comcast.net, Newsweek.com and many more. However, some of Pulse360's advertisements have caused controversy and numerous complaints with disappointed publishers complaining about "shady" and misleading advertisements and disgruntled users trying (without success) to opt-out from the network's most obtrusive pop-ups.
Pulse360 pays via Check or wire on a NET 45 schedule with a minimum payout of $50. The network claims to have flexible payment terms for certain campaigns and tries to accommodate each publisher's needs individually, which is a plus for their already good support. Control tools are basic and reporting is decent, with real-time reporting tools available to all publishers.
All in all, Pulse360 is a flexible CPC and CPA network that has stood the test of time even though their reputation has not been spotless. Many of their exclusives are enticing but certain ads of theirs can be considered "shady" and may displease website visitors and sometimes publishers too.
