This month MediaWhiz, which acquired AuctionAds from ShoeMoney Media last year, merged their AuctionAds and ShoppingAds products into one product, dropping the AuctionAds name and sticking with ShoppingAds.
ShoppingAds is now a hybrid which serves both CPA affiliate style ads served by eBay and also CPC ads provided by the shopping comparison engine partners of ShoppingAds. Web publishers can run these ads on their sites or blogs in a similar fashion that Google AdSense or Chitika ads are served.
Existing AuctionAds publishers do not need to change a thing and will notice that the “Ads By AuctionAds” is now “Ads By ShoppingAds”.
Another change is that CPC Premium publishers are restricted to sites serving US and Canada traffic :
By becoming a premium publisher you will have the opportunity to be paid on a CPC (cost per click) basis for all your US and Canadian traffic while you can monetize your international traffic on a CPA (cost per action) basis. Standard publisher’s traffic will be monetized 100% on a CPA basis.
Note : MediaWhiz also owns Text Link Ads and ReviewMe. TLA is a sponsor of Search Engine Journal, but this is not a sponsored post 🙂
