If you don't want to sell ads, there is a cheaper lite version called Ads Manager 2 Lite.

Ads Manager 2 is the new and improved version of Ads Manager 1, designed for XenForo 2. Ads Manager 2 allows you to make money by displaying your own ads or by selling ad spaces on your forum (or both).

There are 11 ad types available:

1. Code
Display HTML/JavaScript ads such as affiliate banners, Amazon product widgets, Adsense, etc. This ad type also supports PHP callback to generate your own custom code.

2. Banners
Display banner ads that you can upload directly or from an external source. You can use multiple images to rotate randomly on each page load.

3. Text
Display text ads with custom title, description and optionally a banner image.

4. Links
Display link ads with custom title. You can use it to build link lists in the forum sidebar or display horizontal links in other places.

5. Keywords
Transform text keywords into links with a tooltip description (optionally). Keyword ads can be enabled in thread posts, conversation messages, profile posts, resource description and in chat messages (Chat 2 add-on). As admin you can use it without link and can also add inline CSS to style the keywords as you want.

6. Affiliate Links
Convert links to affiliate links using 5 link building methods. Optionally you can replace the link anchor text with a custom text. You can also hide the affiliate URL when hovering over the link.

7. Promo Threads

11. Background
Display a background image as an ad with clickable left and right parts of the image. If you provide multiple background images, they will rotate randomly on each page load.

Popup and background ads can be controlled how often they show up and after how many seconds to display. You can even hide them after x seconds of display.

Code, banner (Custom HTML), text and popup ads support XF template syntax.

There are over 150 default positions and 80 of those are predefined dynamic positions that allows you to display ads between thread posts, conversation posts, profile posts, media items, resources and more.

The best ads manager for Xenforo, end of story. Siropu keeps on adding cool features and his support is great.
Amazing! We were looking for the perfect solution for our direct advertising needs. It almost is perfect.
I used the XF1 version of this addon and didn't think it could get any better than that. I was wrong! This version is WAY better. More placements, easier to put ads in multiple places, more options (eg, affiliate linking). Just fantastic.
Excellent, full-service add-on with a responsive and flexible author who is willing to accept suggestions and add them to the product in a timely fashion. Thank you @Siropu
This plugin is great, and the author is always responsive and makes the plugin even better at the request of customers.
This an excellent AddOn! The built-in ad manager just didn't do what we needed. This rascal does everything and more. Even let's you serve different ads to different device types and tries to work around Ad Blockers. The developer is very responsive.
The best advertising add-on ever. There is no doubt that great progress has been made, and it will definitely be one of the best choices you can make. As a result, it's for you to decide, but that's what I strongly recommend.
