    AdOrigin

    Does anyone know anything about this company? What are the payouts like? Do they pay on time?

    Here is a review:
    AdOrigin took only a few months to develop a wildly negative reputation within the web publishing community. Their program offers a mixed CPM/CPC payment combination on banners and skyscrapers (with forced Superstitial® popups also spawned from the code on occasion) to sites that serve at least 5000 monthly impressions and manage to maintain a CTR above 0.25%. A few points to note off-the-bat are that their system of measuring impressions counts unique visitor sessions as a single impression. Also, their terms allow for popups, CPA banners and makegood impressions to be served without prior approval, for the terms to be changed at any time without notice, for affiliate accounts inactive for 60-days to be deleted and all unpaid revenues forfeited (which is liberal when one considers that their payment terms are NET90). Not to mention that the company seems to have ben unsuccessful at securing many direct campaigns - instead reselling ads from DoubleClick, 24/7 Real Media, Be Free, ClickThruTraffic and LeadCrunch amongst others - and has been plagued with reports of shoddy reporting, poor service, under-counting of resold clicks and, worst of all, wide reports of non-payment, AdOrigin is most certainly a company of which to be wary.
