How can I see my ads published on your sites?
Actually, there's no easy way to do it, but it can be done. First, you need to know the sites that promote your ads. Go to your campaign page -> Traffic sources -> Exclude from campaign (e.g. https://a-ads.com/campaigns/1/ad_units). Here you can see a list of ad units that display your advertisement. Please, mind they are sorted like "probable sources of fake traffic first". !(https://storage.crisp.chat/users/helpdesk/website/6a953c4814a02400/

You can reward those publishers via the goal tracking API and get more impressions from them. Goal trac

I paid for a campaign but it doesn't generate impressions
There might be several reasons for that. For instance, your advertisement might be banned or not yet activated (it takes up to 8 hours to verify and approve the ad, although usually ads are moderated rather quickly). Another possible reason might be that your daily budget is too low. Campaigns with daily budget less than 0.00000100 won't spend. Yet another possible reason might be that your campaign doesn't contain enough traffic sources. Also it could be a bug. First of all, please, chec

How to move money from a user balance to a campaign balance?
You don't need to do it. A started campaign with a non-zero daily budget will be automatically funded from your user balance unless there is enough money on the campaign balance. In most cases, funding user balance is more comfortable than funding campaign balances, because all campaigns within a user account can receive funds from a user balance without additional actions.
Is there a minimum deposit or a minimum daily budget?
No, there is none. You can deposit any sum to your deposit address and set any daily budget, that seems reasonable to you. The only limitation is technical: budgets less than 121 satoshis won’t be spent. Just mind checking the traffic estimations when you set a daily budget at Campaign -> Finances -> Budget page. Please note that traffic estimations might not be accurate, especially if you have a narrow targeting and low budgets.

How to fix a high bounce rate?
Sometimes our advertisers are unhappy because they see extremely high bounce rates for A-ADS traffic. Tracking systems might show a bounce rate of up to 99%, while the bounce rate for other networks might be something like 25 - 70%. This difference is due to the fact that A-ADS is not a pay-per-click network: advertisers pay a fixed daily budget and get a share of all the targeted traffic. Since advertisers don’t pay for clicks, there is no need to filter them. Bad clicks may increase the bounc
