I am looking to get a very basic ad network script developed. The script will be expanded upon in the near future by the person who develops this version but for now I am just looking for the ground work of a much larger system.
Basically I am looking to start a small CPM ad network that will run on quite a few high volume sites so it will need to be able to handle a lot of traffic.
The script will function like any other ad network, publishers and advertisers will create accounts, advertisers will fund their accounts through PayPal before start their campaign. Advertisers will need to be able to start multiple campaigns and will be able to choose how much of their funds will go towards each campaign and how many days they would like their campaign to last (to get the daily budget obviously just take the campaign budget and divide it by the campaign length).
When and advertiser creates a campaign they will upload a banner that will run on the publishers sites and will choose how much they will pay on a CPM basis. Each campaign will have a small stats section that will show how many impressions their ads got, how much it cost, and if its not too complicated how many clicks their ad received.
Publishers will register for their accounts and will receive the code to enter into their sites to get the ads to show. They will be able to ad multiple sites under each account and will receive separate stats for each site, their stats will include total impressions on the ad code, ad impressions served, money made, and again if its not too complicated the number of clicks on the banners that run on their site.
Their will need to be an admin panel that controls the whole system, allowing us to check stats on everything that is happening and manage the billing/payments for the whole network. The payment system will run on a Net 15 basis, so at the end of each month the money that each publisher earned (if it reached the payment minimum) will be calculated and then added to a pending payment section of the admin panel, 15 days later the pending payments will be moved to a page where the paypal information of the publishers is shown along with the amount they are owed and a button that will allow the admins to mark the payment as sent.
I am looking to have this ready as soon as possible, if you have a system that you have already developed that you can easily modify to work like I described then that would probably work out the best.
