The payments are made on the Net 45 basis.

Is Foremedia Scam?
Frankly, when we were researching about Foremedia, we came across many mixed reviews.
Some publishers would say Foremedia is a scam and some say that it is a legit network.
There are few websites that actually have provided payment proofs.
Some complained that Foremedia have banned their accounts after reaching good revenue.
Usually, Google AdSense would ban users saying that publishers have broken their guidelines.
Even Foremedia argue that publishers have broken their rules.
Actually, some publishers are fed up with AdSense’s rigid rules and looking for the right publisher program that offers great CPC and CPM rates. That too they don’t want any other ad network to be strict like AdSense.
If Foremedia wants to stay in an advertising space for a long time, they should be less rigid.
When a publisher commits a mistake, then Foremedia should provide solid proof before banning publisher’s account.
When you ban a publisher without furnishing any proof, there are higher chances for publisher to think that Foremedia is scam.
Foremedia Payment Proof:
Frankly, we haven’t worked with Foremedia ad network.
This is the reason why we don’t have proof of payment.
However, there are publishers who furnished Foremedia payment proofs on their websites.
You can search for such publishers on search engines.
What are The Pros and Cons of Foremedia Ad Network?
- Hassle-free signup process
- Multiple advertising formats
- Revenue models: CPC and CPM
- Global traffic accepted

AdSense takes time for the approval process. Whereas Foremedia’s process is fast comparatively.
AdSense doesn’t have an active support team but Foremedia’s support team is prompt.
The threshold payouts of both AdSense and Foremedia are the same, $100.
