Teads Minimum Traffic Requirement
Publishers need to adhere to Teads brand safety guidelines, and thus your site needs to have premium inventory which brands believe to be safe for the audience and would like to post their ads on. Since teads work with premium brands and fortune 500 companies, not all publisher websites are approved by Teads editorial team. They take a closer look on the content of the website before approving your site to show Teads advertisement. Additionally, you need to have a minimum of 1 million page views per month to be accepted by the platform. There may be cases earlier where publishers with lesser page views were accepted but we strong think that
Teads CPM Rates
Teads has 28 offices across 28 countries and employees more than 500 people worldwide. The network has a strong presence in the entire Europe and US, and if you have good volume of EU and US traffic, you can easily monetize your editorial content with premium video advertisement from Teads.The CPM rates offered by teads is in the range of USD 15 to USD 20. However, the fill rates can be a great problem if you don’t have targeted traffic since most of the campaigns are for premium audience and the audience segments are defined by the advertisers who use standard DMP (data management platform) which results in precise targeting. Thus, we can confirm the fill rates which would heavily depend on your traffic, but the rates are pretty premium. Even if you’re getting a fill of 10-20%, this would result in additional income for your blogs and websites.
Teads Payment Proof
The minimum payment required for withdrawal is USD 50 and the payments are made in NET 45 days via Paypal or Wire. Teads make payments to its publishers pretty much on time and we haven’t found any discrepancy in their payment terms with publishers until now. Thus it is a pretty reliable ad network working with top publishers across the globe.
To wrap up, Teads offer top CPM rates to its publishers if they have good volume of EU and US traffic. Additionally, since the ads are video outstream, the rates are quite high, but again the overall earnings may not be significant because of the low fill rates. Overall, it a great network for additional monetization, and we recommend signing up with them if you have the required traffic volumes to monetize.
