How It Works

Ad Approval

Approval Criteria

Advertisers need to have a US billing address and access to a US-bank issued credit card in order to transact via our self-serve portal.

PPC Placements do not require "best of web" pricing like our fixed price placements, but pricing will impact click and conversion rate. Since we are a deal site, the placement will require some kind of discount. You will need to make sure that coupon codes remain valid during the time your ads are configured to run. Please contact our team if you have advertising needs that aren't supported by this approach. 

Approval will be focused on verifying accurate information has been provided and that the product meets the following criteria below:

Product Criteria

Contact Us if you have questions about eligibility.

Ad Rejection

If your ad is rejected, then you will receive an email with a reason. You can then re-submit a new, corrected placement for approval.

Ad Serving

DealNews PPC Ads utilize a cost-per-click bidding model, similar to Amazon, Facebook, or Google. We set a minimum price per click for each zone where you can assign your ad placement. You can either set your bid to the minimum, or you can bid higher than the minimum. We recommend bidding higher than the minimum if you ad is receiving fewer impressions than you would like or is not hitting your daily limit.

Criteria Before Your Ad Will Be Served

  • Your order / campaign must be approved by DealNews (we will reach out via email if we reject the order for any reason)
  • You must have funds available in your account.
  • The order / campaign must be active.
  • The order/campaign must have dates that overlap with the current date or must be set to run continuously.
  • The specific ad can't be beyond the daily or campaign limits (view the order details to check)
  • Your bid must be equal to or higher than placements configured by other advertisers.
