    I see if you don't make 5.00$ at least in a month it will not carry over is this always true? Thats one thing that's a bit negative for a beginner.

    I think it is more important to think about how people will react to it.

    If you are just throwing out something that you hope to get hits from but don't care about people reading other posts you wrote, then it really does not matter.

    When I see a post with those kinds of links in it, I have very negative feelings about the person who wrote it and unless the content is truly compelling, I'm done with it right then and there.

    That's me.  OP may not care at all and some people get upset over *any* advertising.  I guess we all have our likes and dislikes; for me, Kontera is right up there with pop-unders and pop-ups.

    YYMV.  Obviously.

    It's not true that Kontera earnings don't roll over.  It was in the beginning (which is now two years ago) but it hasn't been that way for a long time.

    I've found you need a LOT (about 100,000 pageviews per month) of traffic to see steady earnings that aren't just a pittance.  That said, I get paid by Kontera three or four times a year.

    Hi David,

    This is Jonathan from Kontera.

    Relache is correct, a very long time that was true but currently no matter what you earn, it rolls over until you reach the $50 minimum payout threshold.

    If you've been a publisher for more than three months, you can manually change your payout minimum from $100 to $50 by visiting the Payout Method page in your Publisher Center (we changed the minimum threshold recently.

    Regarding, Pcunix, I totally respect your opinion, as you mention that some people find all types of advertising annoying.  But I can say, that because Kontera ads only appear after the user scrolls over them with their mouse, they're only displayed to people actively interested in seeing them, and most people find Kontera to be a much less intrusive form of advertising.
