Add a Banner tab
This allows you to purchase banners to be displayed on our site.
If you currently have no banner credits available you will need to purchase them before you can upload your banner ad image.
Note: Each banner credit is good for 1 month. Example: You purchase 15 banner credits, each of which is valid for 1 month. If you wish to run a banner ad image for several months, you can combine banner credits and use the drop down bar to select 15 months now. Or, you could either create 15 individual banners for 1 month each.
This page is an itemized list of the purchases you made along with the total due. If you chose to mail in the payment, you will find the mailing address on this page as well. Please make sure to include your name, username, and business name. When you are finished click on Return to take you back to your User Control Panel.
