Full PayPal integration and automated features such as deactivating expired ad campaigns allows you to make money without expending extra effort.

Powerful Admin Controls
Administrators have complete control over advertisement campaigns, requiring moderation for all campaigns before they are paid for to ensure you agree with all the content being displayed.

Over A Dozen Banner Locations
Archive - Above Content 1, Above Content 2, Below Content
Forum Home - After Forums, Below "What's Going On"
Forum Display - Below Threadlist
Thread Display - First Post Content, Last Post Content

Blog Sidebar - Sidebar 1, Sidebar 2, Sidebar 3

It only uses the integrated ad system, but any custom placements you add to advertising XML files will also work in this mod.

To integrate the banner, for example in the pages of wordpress, Jomla, etc..
This mod will only function on vB-powered pages, sorry

No, the Advertising system that this mod is built on does not exist on vB 3.8. Sorry

I was uploading files for a different mod, from you, but I couldn't get it to work...I went to uninstall that mod and delete those associated files. In the process, I accidently deleted files for this mod. I reuploaded all the files since I wasnt sure which got deleted, but now I get this error and dont know how to fix it.

Contact your host and ask them to increase the mentioned setting to 128M.

That is unrelated to this mod, you have an outdated modification installed that was written for vB3. Please disable all other mods and re-enable them one-by-one until you find the culprit.

Can anyone who's installed this mod share there experience with it? Did they generate sales etc?

Currently use Adsense and intend to keep using it long term, however would like the option for people to buy directly (either to go above the 3 ad limit of Adsense, or just to maximize income).
I get enough emails to our webmaster address and on our facebook page asking to buy ad space so this plugin could take care of that need without having to put lots of time behind it
