1.1.5.Is there any guarantee I will not get malware or viruses through your Ads?
Baseify is serious about our publishers’ property and manually select what kind of advertising channels we work with.
We never accept suggestive or malicious content from our advertisers. As all our advertisers are providing us with shopping catalogs, the likelihood of household brands to include in their catalog fraudulent offers is minuscule.
We are a one-sided platform and do not take on advertisers who do not work programmatically serving up product catalogs.

The rates are fully dynamic, may vary on different sites and depend on many factors. You will see an approximate CPM on the Dashboard during test days.

After several days pass, your CPM rates can significantly increase.
1.2.1.Where is my publisher ID?
Your publisher identifier is called “CUID” and is automatically embedded within the widgets you generate from the publisher dashboard in the “My Solutions” section.
The CUID is an alphanumeric string, 32 characters long.
