Despite many predictions that push notification ads will immediately fade out due to Google’s interference, this traffic type is still standing steadfast, at least for now.
So while push ads are still here, why not test it out for yourself?
One push traffic source that you can easily join is ClickStar
. This company just opened its doors in 2019 but was able to collect enough publishers under its wing to be able to push millions of ads.

Multiple Targeting Options
Creating a campaign within ClickStar is a pretty straightforward process. Now if you’d like to reach people who will most likely respond to your ad, then you need to narrow down your audience using their targeting filters.
The following are the available targeting options:
- Geolocation - aside from choosing the country, you can further limit traffic from a specific region, state, or province.
- Category - this can filter the traffic based on interest. Available categories include study & recreation, erotica, fashion & style, animals, real estate, and sports, to name a few.
- Connection type
- Operator (carrier)
- Operating system
- OS version
It is also possible to target users based on the length of their subscription (how long since they agreed to receive push notifications). You can choose to receive traffic exclusively from ClickStar or you can include third-party providers.
Finally, you can limit the number of times a user sees your ad per hour, day, week, or even month.
It is possible to allow ClickStar to optimize your campaigns for you with the help of their Smart Bidding technology. To use this tool, you must first set-up either S2S tracking or pixel tracking
so that ClickStar can record conversions.
Once the conversion tracking has been sorted out, you can start creating a campaign with rules on which sites (also called a hash) or sources (also called feed) to block based on clicks and conversion performance.
You can also add a rule regarding increasing or decreasing bids based on the conversion rate and conversion value. There is no limit to the number of rules you can place for one campaign -- just make sure that they do not contradict each other.
ClickStar Funding Options
To fund your account, you can use WebMoney, Capitalist, Paxum, Visa/Mastercard credit cards, or you can top up via bank transfer. The first deposit must be at least $200, while succeeding deposits can be as low as $50. If you will be replenishing your account via bank transfer, the minimum will always be $500.
