But before i start comparing these two URL shorteners let us first understand what are these services ? what they offer ? and what are the factors i am going to consider for comparing them. So, here we go !
What Are These Services ? And What They Offer ?
Basically Adfly and ClicksFly are two URL shortener services which pay their users for shortening and sharing their links. Both of these URL shorteners are non-adult URL shorteners which means you can only short your non-adult content links with them. Also, these URL shorteners offer their services worldwide so publishers from any part of the world can join them and take advantage of their services.

What Are The Factors That I Am Considering For Comparing These URL Shorteners ?
There are various factors that i am going to consider while comparing these two URL Shorteners. Some of which are as follows:
- Network Age
- Network Coverage
- User Base
- CPM Rates
- Minimum Payout
- Payment Frequency
- Payment Options
If you compare these two URL shorteners in terms of their age then you will find that Adfly was started way back in 2009 whereas ClicksFly was started in 2018, so, there a huge difference in their age. This huge difference in their age gives Adfly an upper edge over ClicksFly.
Adfly is far more experienced as compared to ClicksFly. It has almost completed a decade in this industry whereas ClicksFly has just begun its services. So, ClicksFly has to travel a lot more distance to become a network like Adfly.
So, in terms of network age, Adfly wins the race by huge margin but ClicksFly is also a good network and it is growing well so far.
If i have to give marks out of 5 then i would give Adfly a 5 out of 5 and to Clicksfly i would give 4 out of 5 as it can’t do anything for its age. The only thing that ClicksFly can do for now is to stick in the market and provide great services to its users.
Both Adfly and ClicksFly are reliable URL shorteners. They both are paying their users on time and every time. However, here again Adfly wins as it is providing these great services from one decade and it doesn’t have many bad reviews about it. I think maintaining this reputation for a decade is not an easy task and therefore, again i will give Adfly a 5 out of 5 stars.
In case of ClicksFly, it is also a reliable URL shortener and it also doesn’t have many bad reviews about it. So far, it is maintaining its reputation well. However, it still has a long way to go to prove its worth like Adfly and therefore, here again i will give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
In terms of network coverage, both of these URL shorteners monetize worldwide traffic and they almost provide 100% fill rate to users. However, i would say Adfly has a better network coverage as it has tonnes of regular advertisers from all over the world whereas ClicksFly shows Google Adsense ads to monetize publisher links.
So, you can clearly see that Adfly is better in terms of network coverage and therefore, i will give it a 5 out of 5 stars. In case of ClicksFly, i will give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
If we talk about the users base of these two URL shorteners then i would say Adfly has a larger base of users as compared to ClicksFly. Here again Adfly gets the advantage of being one of the oldest URL shorteners. However, ClicksFly also has a huge base of users and they are continuously growing.
Both of these networks has tonnes of publishers and advertisers from all parts of the world. As a publisher you can remain sure of getting 100% fill rate on both of these URL shorteners whereas as an advertiser you can easily reach your target audience with these networks.
For users base Adfly gets full 5 out of 5 stars whereas ClicksFly gets a 4 out of 5 stars.
There is a tough competition in terms of CPM rates. Both of these networks offer high payout rates. And, the best part about both of these URL shorteners is, they both count raw traffic which means you will be paid for multiple views from the same visitors.
You do not get raw traffic count facility on other URL shorteners. If you compare their top payout rates then you will find that Adf.ly offers slightly high payout rates for some countries than ClicksFly. The highest payout rate on Adfly was $21.32 at the time of writing this article whereas on ClicksFly it was $20 per 1000 views.
But the main thing to note here when you see the number second country rates then you find that ClicksFly offers better rates which is $15 per 1000 views whereas on Adf.ly you get $11.47 per 1000 views which is quite low as compared to ClicksFly.
Another most important thing to note here is, ClicksFly offers better worldwide deal for publishers as compared to Adfly. ClicksFly offers $3.50 per 1000 views as its worldwide deal whereas Adfly offers rates between $0.25 to $2, which is again low as compared to ClicksFly.
So, overall in terms of rates ClicksFly wins by a huge margin, so, i am giving ClicksFly a full 5 out of 5 stars whereas Adfly gets 4 out of 5 stars.
If you ask me about the platforms of these URL shorteners then i would say both of these URL shorteners have a very well developed platforms. They have detailed stats reporting system, easy navigation, multiple tools, easy support options etc.
So, overall both of these URL shorteners have a good platform and therefore, they both get a 5 out of 5 stars.
In terms of minimum payout limit i would say both of these URL shorteners have a low minimum payout limit. However, if you compare them then you will find that ClicksFly has a lower minimum payout limit than Adfly. On ClicksFly the minimum payout limit is $3 whereas on Adfly, it is $5.
So, for minimum payout limit i would give ClicksFly a 5 out of 5 stars whereas 4 out of 5 stars to Adfly.
In terms of payment frequency Adfly wins clearly as it pays its users on daily basis. Actually it process the first payment on monthly basis after that it processes all payments on daily basis. Whereas, in case of ClicksFly, it pays it users on monthly basis.
So, if your prefer quicker payments then i recommend you to join Adfly otherwise you can join ClicksFly.
For payment frequency i would give Adfly 5 out of 5 stars whereas to ClicksFly i would give a 3 out of 5 stars.
If your primary preference is payment options then you will find ClicksFly far better than Adfly as ClicksFly offers lots of payment options whereas Adf.ly offers only two payment options.
On ClicksFly you get PayPal, Bitcoin, Payeer, Bank Transfer, Paytm (India), UPI (India), MobiCash/JazzCash (Pakistan) and Payoneer as your payment options. Whereas, on Adfly you get only PayPal and Payoneer as your payment options.
So, you can clearly see which one offers you better options and therefore, i would give ClicksFly a 5 out of 5 stars whereas Adfly gets a 4 out of 5 stars.
Both of these URL shorteners are legitimate and paying, so, you can use anyone of your choice. However, if your primary preferences are fast payments, more tools and reliability then you can go for Adfly. But if your primary preferences are low minimum payout limit, multiple payment options and better payout rates then you can join ClicksFly.
