Frequently Asked Questions

Is it really free?

Yes, AdBiller is free for everyone. You can use it to create the invoices for the unlimited number of clients, on the unlimited number of radio or television stations.

How does it work?

AdBiller is a browser-based tool that you can use to create the invoices based on your broadcast logs. The invoicing process is simple and straightforward. You need to select the logs for the entire month (or any other invoicing period), search for the spots, and assign each spot to the corresponding client in case the algorithm is unable to do it on its own. AdBiller would then create the invoices based on the number of broadcasted units, the spot(s) duration and your advertising rate card, and you would be able to review and edit the invoices manually.

We are a non-broadcast business. Can we use AdBiller?

Yes, you can simply ignore the broadcast log reconciliation and the advertising rate card sections, and you'll be able to create the invoices manually.

Will AdBiller work with our current automation/playout software?

There are hundreds of different broadcast automation platforms out there, so we cannot guarantee that AdBiller will be able to reconcile the broadcast logs generated by any given third-party software. However, if you can open your broadcast log in Notepad and locate the commercial spots along with the corresponding broadcast dates and times, it should only take a couple of minutes to configure AdBiller to learn your broadcast log structure. Try it out now.

What is the difference between AdBiller and AdMaster?

AdMaster is a traffic scheduling tool: it creates the playlists for your commercial breaks, and your playout software inserts these logs to the main program playlist. AdBiller takes over when the commercials have already been played. It reads the broadcast logs and prepares the invoices for your clients. Although the invoice creation process offers the higher level of automation in case you're using AdMaster, no purchase of any kind is required to use AdBiller.

Do we need to purchase AdMaster to be able to work with AdBiller?

No, you don’t, although the invoice creation process is significantly faster and easier if the traffic schedule has been managed in AdMaster.

Can we add our station logo to the invoices?

Yes, you can. 

We need to customize the invoices by adding the legal stuff. Is this possible?

Yes, it is. You can add whatever you need, from “Thanks for advertising on XYZ Channel”, to “Please note that our bank account has been changed”.

We own four stations. Can we use one AdBiller account for all of them?

Yes, you can manage the unlimited number of stations, as long as the invoices for all of them are issued by the same business entity. In case you need to have the invoices issued by the separate business entities, you would need to create the separate AdBiller account for each business entity.

What about the advertising agencies and their commissions? Can they be configured?

Of course. 

Are the broadcast reports (affidavits of performance) available?

Yes, they are. You can add them to each invoice, or you can create, save and print them as the separate documents, regardless of the invoices. If you are using another invoicing platform, you can use AdBiller as a free tool to create the broadcast reports.

We charge per second. Is this price model available?

Yes, it is. You can set the detailed pricing model that includes the separate price for each hour throughout the week. The pricing models per spot play and the flat rate per client are also available.

Is it possible to add the production services to the invoices?

Yes, it is. You can manually add the unlimited number of invoice items, and set the descriptions, prices and discounts for each of them.
