Great news Kontera has just reduced its minimum payment to $50 all you have to do is:
1 Log in to your Publisher Center (as a reminder, your username is your email address)
2 Choose the “My Account” Tab
3 Choose the "Payment Method" page from the top navigation bar
4 Select your Payment Type from the drop-down menu
5 Type “50” into the entry field for Minimum Payout
6 Hit “Submit”
As easy as that folks!!!!!!!!!
I'm still not sure if it's worth it. I always see a major decrease in Adsense when I have Kontera on (I've experimented a few times).
Based on my tests, I could probably make $50 in 2 months, but I'd probably lose $50 from adsense EACH month.
I still am not convinced it is worth it! I have only heard of a few hubbers having success with it and they have a lot of traffic. I think relache said something like 100k views a month. I'm only getting around 50k at this point.
Just my two cents.
I had a small drop for the first month I ran Kontera and then not only did the AdSense come back, it just kept right on zooming up. With only a small growth in the amount of Hubs annually, my AdSense has close to doubled each year over the last two years.
So although I too felt that Kontera was doing something strange to AdSense at first, I don't buy that line of reasoning now. My earnings are pretty steady from them, but you really need a LOT of traffic compared to the average HubPages author.
I also lose earnings on adsense with Kontera on, I dont even remember my login info for it at this point, gonna try to find it now that it dropped to $50, although never got more then $1 in a month with it...
Nice one. Hope they work on improving earnings potential also. Btw is anyone earning good cash from kontera and regularly? Ve never checked my account with them.

Actually, I was just searching for the same thing on google today and found this digitalpoint forum thread. Two hubbers have discussed regarding Kontera's issue of not counting earnings below 5 dollars on a monthly...

I have noticed that upon removing Kontera from my hubs that my AdSense earnings went up. Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense...

I don't believe Kontera is nearly as good as adsense. I have gained some clicks from kontera, but they do not give much revenue. Do you think people clicking on my kontera ads could potentially be hurting my adsense...
