The rates presented on the Payout Rates page is the maximum we are able to pay. However, the rate depends on actual campaigns of ad networks and the quality of the traffic.
In shorte.st we pay you for visits generated on your shortened links. You need to share your links so people can visit them: on your website, through social media (like Twitter ), on blogs, forums, etc. Make sure you attract people, and they want to click your link to see the destination page. The more interesting it is, the more clicks you get.
Please remember that viewers have to click "Skip this ad" to make you earn money. If you get 1000 views, you'll earn money presented in payout rates (for the good quality traffic - visitors need to click ads).
We count up to 5 clicks from each IP address every 24 hours. After 5th click from the same IP address, visits from this IP won't be registered in the Statistics.
Also, if a visitor has an ad blocker tool activated, the visit won't count due to the ad blocking. If you want to block your content for visitors with ad blockers, go to your Settings page: https://shorte.st/profile/edit and change the 'Ad blocking visitors policy' to heavy.
