Ive been checking it up for a while, and just when I was trying to seeting it, realized that you must register on their site to use this free version for 14 days. Well, it looks it work great but a free version for 14 days is not free at all. The Settings of the plugin are not well explained and because of these two things Im giving just 3 stars. In the future will check again hopping that 14 days will change to forever, keeeping the minimum options of course.

This service gives adblock users the option to either remove adblock or pay per page view. It seems to work great, started to get paid by the company who created the plugin. They transfer revenue collected every month in a timely manner. Their stats are also very insightful, definitely recommend users to try it out. Its easy to use, setup and customize everything from the design of the popup to all the copy displayed in the popup. They also have a few customizable options, you can decide wether user can close popup or not, how long till the ad block users gets a popup and many more. I recommend it to anyone who relies on ads as a source of revenue for their site.
