URL shortener services have always been a great source of income for newbies and 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 money from them.
Last two years were good for me as i used a couple of URL shorteners and they generated me some handy income.
Also, in the last two years lots of URL shorteners launched but only few of them were able to survive and made themselves stable in the market.
As every year there are tonnes of URL shorteners launch so it becomes difficult for us to decide which ones to choose for our list.
Like always i am here again with a list of some handy URL shorteners that you can use to monetize your links.
Before listing these 10 best paying URL shorteners of 2020, i want to tell you what made me put these URL shortners in this list and what factors i considered for placing them in the best list ?
Factors Considered For Ranking URL Shorteners:
Before adding any network in the best list i always check few things:
Payout Rates: Payout rates is an important factor so i always consider it in the first place. It 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 in joining it. So, before adding any URL shortener in my best list i always check its payout rates for various countries.
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 the top. So, i always check the reliability of an ad network before listing it in my 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, to keep you on the safer side i am listing only those URL shorteners from which i have paid at least twice.
Services: I always like checking what facilities and services a network is offering to publishers. This also gives me the opportunity to add some new ad networks that offer great facilities.
Many new ad networks offer great services but people don’t realize it. They just go for reliable ad networks that are running for years. But, here on Ad Nets Review, i have decided to promote these new paying ad networks as i believe they can generate better revenue for you.
Payments: This is another thing that i always consider and alter my list on the basis of it. I always consider payment frequency, payment options as the major factors to test how easier and quicker it is for users to withdraw their money. The faster the payouts, the better for publishers.
So, based on the above factors, i have made a list of some best paying URL shorteners. I hope they will work for you and generate you some handsome income in 2020.

10 Best Paying URL Shorteners Of 2020
So, here’s our list of 10 best paying URL shortners of 2020:
Adfly has always been in my favorite list. It went one or two spots up or down but it always managed to get into my best list of URL shorteners. The reason behind placing Adfly in my best list is its reliability and quality of service.
I am using Adfly from last 5 years and it has never disappointed me.
I always get my payments on time. It offers daily and automated monthly payouts. This means that you can request your payment anytime and you will be paid within 24 hours of request.
Alternatively, you can leave your account on auto-payments mode and you will be paid 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 most probably you must have heard about it. This is one of the most popular URL shortneners which is running for years.
It offers more than enough tools that you can use to maximize your link earnings. Not only this, it is one of the few URL shorteners that offer various ad formats.

Adfly also offers banner based interstitial ads which make interstitial ads less intrusive.
Adult.xyz is an adult specific URL shortener. It is launched by the Adfly team to monetize adult content links.
not yet reached the minimum payout limit on this URL shortener and uploaded the payment proof on its review page. Actually, so far i have received a couple of payments from it and i believe now it deserves an upper place in this list.
As i have tested this URL shortener and received a couple of payments so i am placing this network two spots above in my list as compared to its previous year’s ranking place.
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.
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.
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.

All these payment options have different minimum payout limit but you are not required to worry as minimum payout limit for all payment options is low. You can withdraw your earnings for as low as 1$ amount.
All payments are made in USD on this network and Indian visitor can withdraw their earnings via UPI if they want to avoid currency conversion and additional fees that various payment options charge them. To Indian publishers i recommend them to withdraw earnings via UPI as there you save some bucks that you may pay as fees on other payment options.

ClicksFly was launched last year and it soon became one of the popular URL shortener. I also personally like this network very much and therefore, i decided to put it on top of my list. The reasons are simple for listing this network on top. The primary reason for listing it on top is its payout rates. On this network you get whooping rates up to 20$ for 1000 views. Isn’t it great ?
The other best thing about this network is, it has a low minimum payout limit of 3$ only which make it easier to withdraw your earnings. And, the best part is, it pays in Indian currency too. This means if you are an Indian then you are not required to withdraw your earnings via PayPal which imposes heavy service and currency exchange charges. This saves you some bucks.
For publishers other than from India, they get various other payment options to withdraw their earnings including PayPal, Payoneer, Bitcoin, Payeer, Mobicash/JazzCash (Pakistan) and Bank Transfer.
Indian users can withdraw their earnings via UPI and Paytm to save high service charges. Also, one more thing that i liked about this network is its quality support. I contacted them once and got a super quick reply from them. Their team is friendly and helpful and that is also another reason why i recommend this network to publishers.
