Payment Processing

Last Updated on November 16, 2016

Our publishing partners have access to several payment options. We partner with industry-leading companies to provide the most secure and efficient checkout processes for both our advertisers and publishers. Below is a list of payment options we offer our partners.

Credit Card

Advertisers using credit card to check out their purchases can use Visa, Master Card and American Express. Purchases are directed through BuySellAds to Once payments are verified, transactions are completed and queued immediately.


All credit card transactions are managed by Authorize.Net. While we do not store credit card information ourselves, the data is passed through us and directly to (which is why we’re PCI compliant). When payment data is sent through BuySellAds to, the data is encrypted by Authorize.Net is using AES-256 encryption for their SSL needs, and the certificate is signed by Entrust.


Publishers have the ability to offer their trusted advertising partners the ability to pay by invoice (check, money order, etc.). Publishers are responsible for invoicing and collecting manual payments. Invoicing options can be toggled for each individual advertiser when compiling a sales referral link. A PDF-based invoice is generated and then delivered to an advertiser directly.

Inventory must be manually trafficked.


Advertisers can purchase inventory through Self-Serve Direct by signing into their PayPal accounts and checking out the inventory by following the traditional PayPal prompts.


All PayPal transactions are managed and handled directly by PayPal. Transactional data, much like with credit cards, are passed directly from BuySellAds to PayPal for processing. PayPal relies on an SSL certificate to encrypt the sales data being passed to the company. PayPal uses a SHA-256 with RSA Encryption certificate signed by Symantec.

Using An Account Balance

Advertisers can also use the funds already in their BuySellAds accounts to purchase advertising inventory from Self-Serve Direct installations directly. If an advertiser has worked with BuySellAds previous, the balance will be available to them upon checkout.
