10-best-paying-url-shorteners-2017URL shortener services have always been a great source of income for newbies and even for professionals who like to monetize their links. I have always been a great fan of URL shorteners because they don’t require you to have a website. You just need a link and a simple strategy to earn some good income from them. Last year was good for me as i used couple of URL shorteners and they generated me some handy income.

Last year lots of URL shorteners launched but only few of them were able to survive and made themselves stable in the market. Since, every year there are tonnes of URL shorteners launch and therefore it becomes difficult for us to decide which one to chose. So, like every year, i am here again with a list of some handy URL shorteners that you can use to monetize your links.

Before listing those 10 best URL shorteners, i want to tell you what made me put these URL shortners in this list and what factors i have considered to place them in the best list.

Before adding any networks to the best list i always check few things.

  1. Payout Rates: Rates are the important factor, so, i always consider it first. Payout rates is a thing that people always look before joining any particular ad network. If rates offered by an ad network are not good then there’s no worth joining it, so, its my first priority to check payout rates.
  2. Reliability: In these days of competition, one can never give surety about any ad network but still there are few good ad networks that are running for years and still they are on top. So, i always check the reliability of any ad network before listing them in top/best list. I can’t give surety of future of any URL shortner but at the moment these URL shorteners are doing well. But still to provide you the best list i am listing only those URL shorteners from which i have got paid twice at least.
  3. Payments: This is another thing that i always consider and alter the list based on the payment terms. I always consider payment frequency, payment options as the major factor to test how easier and quicker it is for users to withdraw their money.

So, based on the above factors, i have made a list of some best paying URL shorteners. I hope they will work good for you and generate you some handsome income this year. I will also request our users to suggest us of some new URL shortners that you think they deserve in the list. You can always mention those URL shorteners in the comments.

So, here’s our list of 10 best paying URL shortners of 2017:



Adfly has always been in my favorite list. It went one or two spots up and down but it always maintained itself in my best list. The reason behind always placing it in my best list is its reliability and quality of service. I am using this service from past 4 years and it has never disappointed me. I always get my payments on time. It offers daily payouts and automated monthly payouts. Which means you can request for payment anytime and you will be paid within 24 hours or just leave your account for auto-payments, they pay on 1st of every month if your account reaches the minimum payout limit.

The payout rates on Adfly has always been awesome. This URL shortener is master in its field. If you have ever used URL shorteners to earn money then there is a high possibility that you have heard about it. This is one of the most popular URL shortnener running for years. It offers more than enough tools that you can use to maximize your link earnings. Not only this, this is one of the few URL shorteners which offers various ad formats. With interstitial ads it also offers Pop Ads. It also offers banner based interstitial ads which make interstitial ads less intrusive which don’t affect users experience.




Shortest is another premium URL shortener running effectively for years. This is also one of few URL shorteners from which i get paid on regular basis. This also offers very high payout rates and its monetizations tools are just awesome. It offers tonnes of monetization tools that can multiply your earnings in various easy ways. The only thing that makes me add it below the Adf.ly is its payment frequency. Unlike Adfly which offers daily payments, Shorte.st pays its users on monthly basis. Usually on 10th of every month.

But still it is one of the best URL shorteners out in the market. Though, it pays on monthly basis but it takes special care of its users. During last year what i have noticed is, during the festival seasons this URL shortener paid its users twice a month so they can have a great festive seasons. These small things make an ad network trustworthy. It also offers a very low minimum payout of 5$ like Adfly and multiple payment options.


Ouo Review:


Last year this ad network was on the top of our list but in the middle for two months it got issues with PayPal and therefore, its users had to face delays in payments. But at last this ad network added new payment option Payza and started paying its users on time. Now, like always it pays on time and every time. Ouo makes biweekly payouts mainly on 1st and 15th of every month. It also offers above average rates and multiple tools to maximize your links earnings.

It also offers a competitive minimum payout of 5$, so, users can easily withdraw their earnings.




This is another great URL shortener which i am promoting from last two years. This URL shortener has also never disappointed me. It pays quick, offers low minimum payout and multiple payment options. It also offers various monetization tools like multi Shrink, Quick Shrink, Custom Link, Website Script, and developers API. This ad network has the same competitive low minimum payout as of the above mentioned ad networks. This ad network pays its users within 4 days of payment request. However, every time i get payment within 24 hours of payment request. This shows how stable this ad network is.

So, if your are looking to monetize your links then you can give a try to LinkShrink.




Uskip.me was launched last year and made a good reputation in the market. Though Uskip.me is pretty new as compared to above mentioned URL shorteners but it is run and maintained by a experienced staff. Uskip.me also offers the same competitive minimum payout of 5$ with daily payment terms.

In terms of payout rates and monetization tools this URL shortener also not lags behind. It offers above average rates which let you easily reach your minimum payout limit.




Fas.li is another new URL shortener which was launched last year but it is offering high rates and premium services. It pays its users on biweekly basis and minimum payout on it is only 5$. It offers a huge variety of tools that you can use to maximize your link earnings.

It offers multiple payment options for easy withdrawals of earnings.




Linkbucks is one of the oldest URL shortener. It allows users to monetize their both adult and non-adult content links. The payout rates offered by Linkbucks are average but overall it is good ad network. Its low minimum payout is little high as compared to above mentioned URL shortener, which is 10$. Linkbucks pays its users on daily basis and offers multiple payment options to withdraw earnings.

Linkbucks offers a huge variety of monetization tools that can increase your earnings by a huge margin.




Adult.xyz is a new URL shortener specially started for adult content links. I have not yet reach the minimum payout limit on this ad network but still i am placing it here. The reason behind placing this URL shortener in our best paying URL shorteners is, it is a sister site of Adf.ly. The other factors are the payout rates and all the premium services of Adf.ly.

It has everything similar to Adf.ly the only difference is, it is started by Adf.ly mainly for adult content links. So, if you are looking to monetize your adult content links then you can confidently give it a try.
