New 728x90 Payperpost banner! Payperpost support is very helpful!

Posted by Shailendra Doke | Jun 21, 2008 Leave a Comment

As you know that in PayPerPost affiliate section there are only four types of banners and they are (125x125) (200x125) (145x100) (88x31). I was having a 728x90 free space below the logo in my blog template for advertising. I decided to fill it with some affiliate ads so I selected Payperpost and created a 728x90 custom banner to use on my blog. You can see the banner below.

On Friday I sent an email with a link to my banner to Payperpost support regarding permission to use the new 728x90 custom banner which I created to fit in my new blog design. Though the custom banner was not so attractive but for a short time I decided use it. After 2-3 days I got an email from the Payperpost team in which they said that they have created a new 728x90 banner and it will be forwarded to me.

Here is the Payperpost Customer Love email.
