Frequently Asked Questions

What is all about? is a free URL shortener that pays a share of its advertising revenue to its users who bring traffic to their shortened URLs. We have sponsorship deals with top advertisers that allow us to display their ads when visitors are linked to a page.


How does it work?

Yli Shortener gives the opportunity to its users to convert any URL into a shorter link. When someone clicks on your short link, a full page advertisement is shown for a few seconds prior to clicking on a CONTINUE button and be directed to the intended destination. For every view that is forwarded through the advertising page, the user receives credit.

How do I get paid ?

We can pay you via Paypal, Bitcoin and PerfectMoney. The minimum amount to withdrawal is $5.00. When you reach that, you may process your payment.
In order to receive payments, you must have a working account with Paypal, PerfectMoney or a Bitcoin wallet . When using Bitcoin for payments, make sure that the Bitcoin wallet address is filled in correctly as cryptocurrency payments are non-refundable. Yli cannot be held responsible for any loss of funds due to incorrect Bitcoin wallet address filled in the user's account details.


How long do payments take to be processed?

Once you have requested your payment from the Withdraw section, your traffic will be validated and your payment will be sent to your payment processor. We aim to validate and send the payment within a few hours, however it may take up to 4 business days.


What are the payout rates?

Rates vary according to the country the traffic is originating from amongst other factors. The rates per 1000 UNIQUE clicks can be found in our Payout Rates page. The rest of the visits are credited depending on how well the advertisers are willing to pay for that particular country.


How do you ensure the best payout rates?

We only take a very small percentage in commissions to keep the service running smoothly without any interrupts. We make sure to get the best advertisers bidding for your traffic and with the help of our algorithms we will be able to get the most out of our user's traffic.


How much money will I make?

The amount you earn will be based on how many people visit your shortened links, what kinds of ads are being shown, and who is visiting. The earnings potential depends on the amount of traffic you are capable of generating through your shortened URLs. Our top members consistently earn $1,000+ each month.


How does the referral program work?

For every user that you refer to, we will pay you 15% of their total income. This is the highest rate compared to similar sites! Also your referral will still earn the original 100% so he is not affected. In the Referrals section, you may find your referral link and ready made referral banners to place them on your website/blog or share them through any social media.


Will my shortened links ever expire?

Currently shortened links by our members have no expiry date. This may change in the future but plenty of notice will be given.


Can I click my own links?

You cannot click on your own links to generate money. You may only click on your own shortened URLs to test them.


Can I ask people to click on my links?

No, each click must be from a source who actually wants to go to the destination website. You cannot offer any incentives to your visitors to click on your links.


Can I receive credit for one person clicking on a link multiple times?

You may do, it depends how many advertisers we have on the system at that time and also other factors relating to fraud prevention. We aim for the visitor to be credited at least once in a 24 hour period.


Can shortened links be opened in a popup or iframe?

No, links cannot be opened in a popup or iframe. The visitor must open your shortened URL only by clicking directly on it.


Am I allowed to have more than one account?

You are allowed to create only one account per individual. Creating multiple account can result in the termination of your account, without any payment.


Can I link to adults websites/materials? Or use's links on an adults site?

No, not at all! We strongly recommend that you do not use our services for adults content. Otherwise, your links will be deleted and your account will be deactivated without any payment.
