Fantastic add-on, fantastic support! The add-on seems to fulfill any wish, an ads manager could imagine. I had one small suggestion though and Siropu made it possible and even stayed calm, when it did not work for me at once. Just awesome, thank you!
Coming from Siropu's Chat, we had high expectations for his Ads Manager. And our expectations were fulfilled 100%.

The extensive options cater for every need. Everything works and is stable - you are hard pressed to find any glitches in this product.

I especially love the ability to easily geotarget.

Looking forward to what Siropu comes up for XF2!
This add on is wonderful. The support is incredible as well. Any questions I've had have quickly answered. Highly recommend.
Bought this going by the reviews of this. Having only used it for two days now, I'm impressed.

Both by the sheer amount of options and ways you can sell ads, but also by Siropu's help. I could net set two things up and he responded politely via e-mail. One of the two things was a big oversight on my part but siropu acted like a true customer service rep and helped me out :)
This ads manager addon is so good that I bought 2 copies for my forums, you can't go wrong with this addon. All in one advertising solution! Cheap price too! Thank you!
Amazing addon and amazing support ! Siropu is a great developer always supporting us. You can't go wrong if your wish is to monetize your forum.
Good Morning Siropu, this is one of the best Addons i´ve ever bought. There is all what i need included, no error messages, easy to use, perfect for me. "Thumbs up" ;)
I have tried every single ad manager made available to Xenforo since inception, except this one, until now. I was tired of the convoluted, JS heavy themehouse solution. This one advertises, lightweight and powerful. I can now attest, I should have moved sooner. This ads manager by Siropu is just amazingly fast, powerful, and pretty easy to work out and use. I had ads up and running within 10 minutes. I can scale my ads with far more detail, track and monitor them with ease to know what is working, what is not. The simplicity of the system and ease for public ad purchasing -- nothin short of brilliant.

If you're still using any other ad manager for Xenforo -- get away from it and install this one. For nothing more than the simplicity and ease, that everything just works and works first time. No fighting the system, no manipulating things, it just works. Just Do It -- as Nike say!
Awesome software, everything you need with great support! Siropu keeps adding features that make it the best xenforo ad software.
Amazing ad manager. Very simple and intuitive to use, yet flexible and fully featured. Exactly what I needed!
