The payout is the minimum cashable amount, or rather, the minimum amount of money you have to accumulate before you can cash in your earnings. The payout we apply is 20€ if you are registered as a private, while it is 100€ if you are registered as a company.

We have purposely set a low payout because we want you to be able to cash in your earnings as soon as possible.

09. What’s the easiest way to manage video seeding campaigns?

Permalink

The easiest way to manage video-seeding campaigns is to implement on your website the All-in player or EVU (Engagement Video Units) formats.

Both the all-in player and EVU formats show in rotation all the campaigns available for your account. In this way you will not have to worry about replacing the code every time a campaign’s budget runs out.

The all-in player is available in the “native” version, while the EVU formats are available in two versions: Footer and Overlay.

Both formats disappear automatically from your website in the case that all the campaign’s budgets run out. The Player All-in also allows you to enter an alternative code to show to your audience: in this way you will not waste a click!
In both cases, all-in player will automatically re-appear when a new Plavid campaign is available.

13. Which ad formats can I choose from?

Permalink

You can choose two different ad formats:

1. Native All-in: the ideal format for text-based site. It’s an out-stream video format that seamlessly integrated with the editorial content of the page. The video starts only when the user clicks play and can be stopped at any time. Customizable sizes: from 180*123 to 600*375.

2. EVU Overlay: rich-media video format that maximizes the user experience. The video starts only when the user clicks play and the overlay can be closed at any time.

Both formats are responsive and allow you to earn even from you mobile traffic.

14. How can I suspend a campaign that I don’t want to run on my site?

Permalink

To suspend the single campaign, just click on the “OFF” button and the video campaign won’t continue to run in your site/sites.

15. What happen if all campaigns run out of budget?

Permalink

If you implemented the javascript version of the code (our suggested option), when all the available campaigns for your account run out of budget, the ad format will disappear from you site. This way, you won’t waste a click!

If you are using the javascript version of the Native all-in format, you can insert your passback code that will run third party campaigns in case all Plavid campaigns run out of budget.

The ad format will automatically re-appear in your site when a new campaign is available.

If you are using the iframe version of the Native All-in code, the player will continue to run the last campaign, but you won’t earn on the clicks made until a new campaign is launched.

20. How are preroll campaigns paid?

Permalink

Preroll campaigns are paid every time the user, with the IP in the campaign’s target country, clicks on the video player starting the video ad.

On the campaign section, you will see the CPMV (cost per thousand video views) of the campaign. We remind you that, as in the click to play and watch to play campaigns, you will be paid for every single valid view.

This type of campaign includes the same capping criteria (link) and terms&conditions (link) of the click to play and watch to play campaigns.

21. What does CPMV mean?

Permalink

CPMV is the cost per thousand views. We remind you that Plavid pays for each single valid view: this means that even if you had less than 1000 views for the campaign, the views that you generated will still be added to your earnings and will be cashed in as soon as you have reached the payout expected for your account.

23. How do mobile-only campaigns work?

Permalink

Mobile-only campaigns will automatically be shown from your Native All-in or EVU-Overlay player only to users who connect to your site from mobile devices.

So, users who connect to your site from desktop won’t view this type of campaign.
You will earn every time a user clicks on the video ad to watch it.

This type of campaign calls for the same capping criteria and service terms of video campaigns for all devices.
