Top 10 Best PPD Pay Per Download Sites/Networks


PPD (Pay Per Download) Network is a platform that allows you to make money with your files by locking it with an advertisement or survey before someone could download it. Every time someone tries to access your file, they will have to answer a survey first or fill up a form before they can download it, then you earn money for every person who completes the survey or fills up the required information needed. The technique to get more downloads to your file is by sharing its link to social media, forums, youtube and other places where your file is related that people might want to download it.


Here are the best PPD Sites, ranked according to their popularity.

The content locker automatically detects mobile devices, it adapts according to the screen size  and displays the best converting offers based on the user's location (Geo-targeting). They pay from $.20 - $20 per conversion depending on the user's country. So again, getting downloads from Tier 1 countries will earn you more. You can also monetize your webpages if it contains premium content by using their content locker. Just copy the JavaScript code and paste it to your to your HTML code.

3. ShareCash.org 
http://sharecash.org/

sharecash ppd network

Sharecash is the oldest and one of the best ppd networks which started in 2009. They offer pre-uploaded files for members to promote so if you don't have a file to promote yet and you can't think of what kind of file you're going to promote, then just go to their exclusive content which can be found on your account dashboard and choose which one you like. They have premium eBooks, game guides, and software and you are free to distribute these files without violating copyright laws.

Sharecash pays around $1 to $20 for every file download but you will usually earn an average of $1 per download. You can get more if your traffic comes from Tier 1 countries (wealthy countries) because people their have a higher standard of living than in developing countries. So if you get 1,000 downloads to your file, that means you'll earn around $1,000 as well.

Payment Method - Payza, Payoneer, Wire Transfer, Check, ACH

Minimum - $20 for Payoneer, $25 for Payza, $50 for ACH, $100 for Wire Transfer and Check

https://www.cpagrip.com/

 CPAGrip network

CPAGrip's improved analytics sofware keeps members up to date with the most relevant lead related information. They have high EPC (earnings per click) offers and have a dedicated support team which available 7 days a week.

Payment Method - Check, PayPal, Wire, ACH

5. FileIce
http://fileice.net/

fileice pay per download site

FileIce is a private PPD network currently in beta testing and the number of people they approve is "strictly limited" according to them, so I can say that they aren't newbie friendly and they only approve applicants that they think is already experienced in this niche. In order to increase your chances of getting approved on Fileice, it is necessary that you should have made money already on other PPD sites and you have to be clear on how you're going to promote and drive traffic to your files when you write it during your application.

FileIce offers an average of $1 per download just like sharecash and their average EPC (Earnings Per Click) is
$0.20 from US traffic with conversion rates over 25%.

If we're going to compare FileIce with ShareCash, both of them are high quality platforms but ShareCash have 2 advantages over them. The first one is that Sharecash is newbie friendly, they accept applicants that doesn't have much knowledge about making money with this niche yet and they let them learn and grow inside their platform while FileIce don't, they are strict when it comes to accepting new members. The second advantage of ShareCash over FileIce is that they offer pre-uploaded exclusive files for members to promote which is helpful especially if they don't have their own files to promote yet. Again, both FileIce and ShareCash are high quality and both of them pay around $1 per download, it's just that ShareCash isn't strict when accepting applications from new applicants.

Payment Method - PayPal, ACH Direct Deposit, Wire Transfer, Check

Payment Schedule - Net 7 Days, Net 15 Days



6. Purebits
http://purebits.net/

purebits pay per download network

Purebits is a Pay Per Download (PPD), Pay Per Install (PPI), and Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) network that started in 2013. They have several monetization tools from File Locker, Link Locker, Content Gateway, Sofware Locker, Video Locker, and Content/Webpage Locker that members can use to monetize their apps, games, eBooks, music, files containing passwords and other digital contents that would be valuable to people. They also have an active support team that responds within 24 hours.

Payment Method - PayPal, Wire Transfer

Minimum - $50

Payment Schedule - Weekly, Net 7 Days, Monthly



7. Cleanfiles
http://cleanfiles.net/

cleanfiles pay per download network

Cleanfiles is another high quality PPD Network that started in 2012. They also pay an average of $1 per download but they are choosy when it comes to accepting new members, so if you want to get accepted to their network, you need to convince them that you're already making money with other ppd sites and has already a lot of experience with this money making method. Cleanfiles also have content/webpage lockers that members can use to monetize certain pages of their website that contains premium content. Their minimum cash out is $50 and new account must be at least 3 weeks old to be able to cashout, after that they'll start sending payments weekly.

Payment Method - Payza, Payoneer, Wire Transfer, Check, ACH Direct Deposit

RevenueHits is owned and operated by an Israeli-based company which started in 2008. Their technology scans millions of ads and analyzes their performance overtime and they have a huge inventory of performance based (CPA) ads. RevenueHits receive more than 2 billion impressions per day and they assure that publishers will get 100% fill rate on all countries.



RevenueHits' technology scan millions of online ads and analyze their performance over time. Their huge inventory of ads is comprised of effective text and display ads that promotes performance-based offers. By serving these proven ads, RevenueHits help their publishers increase revenue and improve their income.

Is RevenueHits a Scam?

No, absolutely not. They are a very popular network with an alexa rank of around 3,000 which proves that a lot of publishers are using their platform. I have a print screen of my current balance and I actually earned it from referral commission. I'm going to post a payment proof once I receive my earnings through PayPal.

Ad Formats:
reveneuhits review

Publishers can choose any of Revenuehits' various banner sizes and formats that match their site to gain access to their huge pool of advertisers. Their algorithm will find the best performing offers for your site to optimize your earnings.

Ad Formats:

Banner Ads

These type of ads are image based and they are more profitable if you place them above the fold because this will maximize the ad visibility which will increase your conversion rate and earnings. Their are several sizes of banner ads available such as rectangular, full banner, leaderboard and etc.

Pop Ups/Unders 

Pop Ups and Pop Under ads will help boost your revenue immediately especially if you're generating traffic from Tier 1 countries because the CPM rates are much higher from these countries. Their system will display it in a controlled way in order to optimize your performances. We all know that pop up ads are annoying so I would just recommend the pop under ads because they are less aggressive, they don't appear right in front of the user but instead they open in a new tab behind the current one.

Slider Ads 

These ads are small rectangular ads that appear at the bottom part of the screen, it slides from the bottom of the screen with a close button. Using this will help increase your earnings.

Footer Ads

These ads will appear at the bottom part of your webpage, they are rectangular banner ads at the bottom of your site.

Interstitial Ads

These are full screen ads and are they look like pop up ads. They appear between webpages and they cover the whole page with a close button. 

Custom Formats

In addition to all standard formats, RevenueHits like to create custom formats according to their publisher's needs and requests. So if you want a customized ad, just contact their support and they will make it for you.

Are they a good AdSense Alternative?

RevenueHits have several ad formats to choose from and they also have instant application approval unlike AdSense so publishers can start implementing their ads right away after sign up without having to wait for hours to get approved. Their criteria for accepting new sites isn't very strict, even blogspot blogs like this can get instant approval when you apply. Some people think that ad networks who have instant approval aren't high quality, that's not true in the case of RevenueHits. They accept publishers who are just starting out and were rejected from very strict ad networks due to low traffic and several other reasons. They give these publishers the time to improve and grow their websites inside their network.

They are a good AdSense alternative especially if you just got banned or having a hard time from getting your application approved by AdSense. Of course, the pay isn't as high as compared to AdSense but this network is a must-try for those who are having trouble with AdSense or those who just want to experiment on different ad networks.

How much will I earn?

You already know what will be the answer, and the answer is "it depends". To make it clearer, here are some factors that will affect your earnings:


Traffic Source: If your traffic comes from tier 1 countries like US, UK, CA AU and other wealthy countries, then you will have higher eCPM (effective Cost Per Thousand Impressions) than getting traffic from 3rd world countries. Why? Because people in these wealthy countries have a higher standard of living so these traffic sources generally have a lot of potential customers which will increase your conversion rates and is good because RevenueHits pay for every conversion and not for every click.

Traffic Quality: Even if your site doesn't get much traffic, you'll still make money as long as they get converted. Again, traffic from wealthy countries tend to convert better.

Finally, give RevenueHits a try, implement their ads on your site for a couple of weeks, try all their ad formats, keep the ones that perform well and remove the ones that doesn't earn money and see how much you earn compared to other ad networks you're currently using except AdSense. :)

Important:

Other publishers are saying that they get a lot of impressions and a lot of clicks but are only earning a few dollars, this is because you won't earn from clicks but from leads or actions taken by the visitors who clicked the ad. RevenueHits don't pay per click but per conversion/lead, that's why they call their ad network a Performance Based Advertising. The visitor must take action like download a software, sign up to a website or any other action in order for Publishers to earn from their ads.

Things to avoid doing:

This network may not be strict when it comes to accepting new publishers but they are strict when implementing their policies and they don't tolerate publishers who are cheating on their platform. I've heard of publishers who got their account locked and were complaining that they didn't violate the TOS (Terms of Service), but RevenueHits doesn't lock publisher accounts for no reason. If ever your account was mistakenly locked by one of their staff, just contact their support and they will get back to you shortly. Here are some things that they don't allow publishers to do:

1. Place tags that haven't been specifically approved for participation in their network on any publisher website. 

2. Publishers must not place Network Tags on blank web pages or on webpages with no content (e.g. place banners on top of one another, so that more than 2 ads are next to each other), or place Creatives (ads) in a fashion that may be deceptive to the visitor in that it causes the Creatives to look like editorial content.

3. Publishers must avoid the following tactics:

a. Induce persons to click on Creatives (ads) based on incentives (e.g. reward programs)

b. Use unsolicited email to promote Creatives.

c. Use auto-spawning browsers, or automatic redirection of visitors, blind text links, misleading links, forced clicks (i.e. requiring a visitor to click on a Creative because their browser has been hijacked, or because a Creative has been altered so that it's impossible to close without clicking it); or any other method that may lead to artificially high number of delivered clicks.

Just refrain from doing the above listed restrictions to avoid your account from being locked and your earnings forfeited.


For Advertisers:

If you want to advertise on RevenueHits, you won't be able to do it directly on their site but instead you will be redirected to their division network called SelfAdvertiser.com. Their first minimum deposit is $100 and after that the minimum is $10.

If you upload your pictures and keep them private, you're still not 100% safe because the possibility of your account getting hacked is still their so just upload the pictures that you won't mind being downloaded or shared by other people.

2. Make sure you own the copyrights of the picture you are sharing online, if it doesn't belong to you and you're not sure whether the owner wants that picture to be shared online or not, then ask for his/her permission first before you share it. 

3. If ever you have uploaded a photo that you regret, just remove it immediately before it gets shared by others, and if you can't remove it by yourself even if you want to, just contact the site where it is located and ask them to remove that content and explain your reason why. 

Remember that you don't have to go through these if you will just share the photos that aren't very personal.
