For Publishers (Podcasters, Radio and YouTube Hosts, Etc)
AdvertiseCast values our relationship with you. The terms below are meant to govern that all parties are happy and successful.
Terms of Service
AdvertiseCast's Agreement is not an exclusive commitment. You have the ability at any time to finalize any relationship you may have with AdvertiseCast. AdvertiseCast's Agreement does not prevent you from signing up with other ad networks or getting sponsors on your own. But if the sponsorship relationship originated through our platform, then all communications and business transactions must occur within AdvertiseCast for one full year. This means any sponsor you find using our service, you must conduct business within our platform for up to one full year. Doing business with the sponsor outside of our platform before the full one year term commitment expires is strictly prohibited.
You are responsible for the advertising/promotion/endorsement/content you sell and produce/fulfill for the advertiser. If you do not complete the advertising work as stated by your listing, funds will not be transferred to your account and the advertiser may leave negative feedback. If you feel you did fulfill the agreement, please contact us and we will review the case.
AdvertiseCast does not negotiate advertising terms on your behalf. Our platform is a self-serve platform --meaning you are responsible for all terms, pricing, and advertising you work-out with the advertiser. In addition publisher is responsible for vetting out the advertiser and determining if they are a good fit for their show. You have the right and are responsible to accept or reject any advertising opportuntity presented to you.
For every advertising product/service you sell on our platform, we keep 20% for our commission. For instance you sell a sponsorship package for $100.00 USD. We will keep $20.00 USD netting you $80.00 USD. The price you list your advertising for is the true price the advertiser will see and purchase from your listing page.
General Terms & Conditions
AdvertiseCast may change the Terms of Service from time to time. By continuing to use the Service following such modifications, you agree to be bound by such modifications to the Terms of Service. Use of some services or content accessible through AdvertiseCast may require acceptance of separate agreements with AdvertiseCast and/or third parties. In consideration of your use of this Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself, your content (i.e. podcast or online content) and corresponding RSS, and your business as prompted by the Registration Form, and (b) to maintain and update this information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If any information provided by you is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, AdvertiseCast has the right to terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service. You agree not to resell or transfer the Service or use of or access to the Service.

Publishers are paid 14-days after the order is marked completed via Paypal. Funds are held for a 14-day holding period to make sure the advertiser is satisfied with the advertising service. If multiple quantity's of an advertising product is ordered, we will pay on a prorated schedule for each quantity that is completed. For instance you charge $100 per 30 second ad spot. An advertiser orders 5 of these for $500. When you complete the first ad, you will be paid $100 after the 14-day holding period.
