What is Contributor?

Google Contributor is not available for all Funding Choices accounts. Please contact your Google representative if you’d like to implement this option.

Contributor lets users buy an ad removal pass for your site. It’s a new source of monetization for your site, funded directly by your users. 

With Contributor, users sign up to pay a per-page fee for every page they view on your site without ads. 

  • You set a single per-page fee for user access to your site content without ads. 
    • You may set different per-page fees by local currency. For example, your site’s per-page fee could be $.02 for US users (those who signed up with a US billing address) and £.01 for UK users (those who signed up with a UK billing address).
  • When Contributor users apply their ad removal pass to your site, they are charged that per-page fee each time they visit a page on your site.
    Users are charged each time they visit or refresh a page, even if they’ve previously visited it.
  • At the same time, Contributor removes ads from that Contributor user’s view of your page. 
  • Google takes a fixed percentage of the per-page fees as payment for providing the Contributor service, and pays the remaining proceeds to you.
  • Contributor does not affect the display of ads to non-Contributor users, or to Contributor users who have not added your site to their pass.
  • Visit the Contributor Help Center for more information.
