If you are not certain whether the site is adult or not, please contact us for further information.

How does this work?
P.pw is a cutting-edge service that enables you to make money from every visitor to your shortened links. The process is simple.
- Create an P.pw account by clicking on the “Join” button that is found on our homepage at http://p.pw
- You will then need to log in to your newly created P.pw account.
- Type in your favourite website in the big white box. Click on Shrink! Afterwards, your initial P.pw URL will be shown and it may look like this example: http://P.pw/A
The work starts now that you have an P.pw URL that is connected with your account.
You must exert every possible effort to give maximum exposure to your P.pw link as you will be paid for each person that will click on the link. If you already own a website, the most efficient way to get exposure is to ‘shrink’ URLs already on your site and substitute them with P.pw links. When visitors to your site click on the links, you will make money.
There is nothing to worry about if you do not own a website as there are many ways to attract people to click on your P.pw links without resorting to spam! Here are some helpful tips:
- Take advantage of Facebook. If you have an awesome site that you can share with your friends, shrink it using P.pw first.
- Use forums. Reach out to people on a forum and help them by answering their questions. Then, shrink any website URLs with P.pw and make sure to incorporate them in your post. However, be careful not to spam or your account will be suspended. Remember this golden rule when taking advantage of forums: never violate forum rules.
- Maximize your opportunity with Twitter. If you have many followers on Twitter, then P.pw is just perfect for tweeting money-making links.
- Use venues where you usually post links. Be innovative and get paid by us each month!
Why aren’t all of my visitors being counted?
Please make sure that you have waited up to 6 hours for our data to get updated.
There are several reasons that may explain why numbers do not match.
The following must be complied with so that we will be able to pay you for your traffic:
- Flash must be enabled
- Cookies must be enabled
- Minimum of 5 seconds view of the advert
- Proxy server must not be used, except when we have advertisers that desire this traffic
- Not more than 5 links should have been already viewed that day
- The advertiser must be one who is willing to pay for traffic from their country
The last point is very essential. We cannot show an advert if we do not have an advertiser that matches your visitor.
We put every effort to minimize unpaid defaults, but, depending on the country of your visitors, this is a likely event.
Can you stop an individual shrinking my URL?
Yes. We can do that provided that you send us a complete DMCA notice at our abuse address at http://p.pw/abuse
. This must include our name / company and legal declaration. Afterwards, we will block it.
In the event that we block a URL on P.pw, no one can shrink it later on (although it may include your own account).
Topics for Advertisers
How long will it take to be shown on my account after I have paid for a campaign?
Normally, campaign deposit payments should be instantly shown. There are, however, some instances when this may not be possible.
It is advisable to give it 24 hours from the time your payment was made. If you are using PayPal, please check that your payment status is not ‘pending.’ There may be delays due to fraud checks, but you can check this by viewing the transaction in your PayPal account.
In case your campaign is still not being displayed on your account after a lapse of more than 24 hours and the payment status is not ‘pending,’ please do not hesitate to contact us.
How long will it take to have my advert reviewed?
Generally, it takes less than 24 hours, but this is not assured.
Review may take up to 48 hours. Please wait for this amount of time to lapse prior to contacting us.
What if my advertisement gets denied?
In case of denial, you will have the option to update the URL to something that will not violate our rules
You can ask for a refund by contacting us
with the Campaign Reference.
What is the lowest amount needed for a campaign deposit?
At the moment, the lowest amount required to run an advertising campaign on P.pw is $5.00, which should be paid via PayPal.
What can I do to target the advertising?
You may target by country and day of the week. As of the moment, there is no system that will allow you to target categories. Further, targeting a particular publisher's website is prohibited as of now.
May I put a limit on the amount that I can spend daily?
Yes, that is possible. You are allowed to set a Daily Budget so that you will be ensured that you will not exceed your budget.
Do note that Daily Budget is different from repeat payment. Payments for advertising are manually made by yourself and we are not able to deduct money automatically from your PayPal account.
Further, establishing a Daily Budget guarantees your traffic will be equally spread out over 24 hours and not sent in a short timeframe.
Why is my campaign is not running?
There are several grounds for a non-working campaign.
First, make sure you have completed confirmation of your PayPal email address on our system. When you login to your account, a prompt with the following message shall be shown:
Lastly, check whether your ‘Daily Budget’ limit has been achieved. Please click on ‘show details’ by the campaign. You should then check the amount set.
Please contact us
with the Campaign Reference if none of the above will resolve the issue.
