Honestly, the minimal fees are one of my favorite things. It allows me to run the business without financial strain even during my slow months.

Once you've created your account and logged into it, click "Add Funds." For now, Paypal is the only payment method accepted. You'll see your account balance on the lower left of your page. Now click "Buy Advertising / Impressions" to purchase some advertising time at the location of your choice. After that, click "Advert settings", choose the advertisement you'd like to edit, and browse to your banner image, enter an ad description and the url of the site you'd like the banner to link to, and click "Update settings." You can use the bannerstats link above to monitor your impressions and click-throughs.

Required banner specs:

  • png, jpg, gif or animated gif (and extension must be in *lower case*)
  • 468x60 for full banners, 120x60 for buttons, and 120x240 for tall banners
  • 128 kB (but less than 126 kB is probably better or you may encounter errors when uploading.)
  • Ads must be for businesses that sell eco-friendly and / or handmade items

Thanks!
