How does AdPress work?

AdPress may be different compared to what you’re used to. To learn more about it and how it works, read up on our documentation below.

Step 1: Designing the Ads

The first step is to design the ads you plan on using. AdPress supports Image and Link advertisements. While you’re designing your ads, you’ll need to specify the following:

  • The size of your image
  • Your column numbers (the maximum number of characters for Link ads)
  • The number of Ads
  • How you are going to sell your Ads: duration, pageviews or clicks
  • The price
  • Where your Ads will be located (sidebar, footer, blog post…)
  • Customizing your Ads look (with CSS and JavaScript).

This step is fully documented here.

After you have designed an ‘Ad Placement’, you can now start selling it through your website.

Step 2: Selling your Ads

After designing your Ads, you can start selling the ad placement on your Website. If you are using PayPal to accept payments, the payment process is fully automated. However, if you aren’t using PayPal, you can let the buyers put a message when purchasing the Ad with the transaction ID or the payment processor of your choice.
