You can create Ads against campaigns without having to pay & checkout for every Ad.This not only streamlines the flow for your advertisors but also allows them to group their Ads in campaigns & manage their spend in a better way.

Selection 002

Google Ads, Facebook & LinkedIn Ads already work on this model. Note that SocialAds will continue to support both the Orignal Pay per Ad mode as well as the new Ad Wallet mode. You have the option to choose which suits you best !

If you wish to switch your payment model to the new Ad Wallet mode, we have provided a quick migration tool that will convert your user's existing ad balances to the new model on a prorata basis. The Migrator also supports a migration from Ad Wallet mode to Pay per Ad mode.

Joomla Day India 2013

Team Techjoomla was at the Joomla Day India (Mumbai) this weekend, and what an event it was! We had Ryan Ozimek (Ex-President, OSM), David Hurley (Development Team Leader) and Ofer Cohen (OSM Board Member) fly in from USA and Israel. Additionally, more than half a dozen speakers from various parts of India made up for an exciting lineup of talks for both days.
