What is mobile traffic?
Mobile traffic refers to visitors that access your website via hand held devices such as iPhone&tm;, iPod&tm;, PSP&tm;, Blackberry&tm;, etc. Mobile traffic represents approximately 1-5% of the overall traffic to your site and can be filtered or redirected through the Java or PHP scripts that are available from topbucksmobile.com

Why did I make five cents on a sale when I'm on the PPS program?
Some countries do not use credit cards so with these given countries, we have implemented a micro-billing SMS solution. The amounts per transaction are very small, however, without these micro-billing transactions, there would be no revenue gained at all. Our webmasters receive 50% of the money generated from these micro-transactions.
