Yes, you can choose to be emailed every time a new ad is sold so you can approve it or deny it from being published. You can set this option up here.
Yes, Text Link Ads can be run along any contextually served product. We do require that TLA be the sole provider of static HTML advertisements, as this will protect the value of the advertisements as well as give you the highest payout.
Payments are sent out by the 15th of every month.
Text Link Ads offers four different options. Check, PayPal, Payoneer or TLA Voucher. To edit these options please click here.
By selecting TLA voucher, all of your publisher earnings will be deposited as a credit into a TLA advertiser account. Publisher earnings turned into a voucher will receive a 15% bonus as well. As an example, if you earn $100, and elect to have those earnings turned into a TLA voucher, you will have $115 credited into your account.
The minimum payment to be sent out via check is $25. The minimum payment to be sent out via Text-Link-Ads Prepaid MasterCard® is $25. There is no minimum for PayPal payments or TLA voucher payments.
We use our own pricing algorithm that factors in: the traffic of your website, theme of your website, and link popularity of your website.

It can take 24 hours to be approved. Then you need to add the code on the exact same page that was approved, then 1-3 days to get packaged on and placed on the site depending on number of submissions.
Maybe. If your website uses the Apache web server (as most Linux/UNIX hosting packages do), you can instruct the web server to treat .html (or .htm) files as PHP. To accomplish this, create a file named ".htaccess" in your root directory and add the following to it (or append it to the bottom of the file, if it already exists):

AddType application/x-httpd-php .html
(Note: if you use ".htm" files, replace the ".html" above with ".htm")

After completing this step, our PHP code should function on your site.

Here are the steps required to tell IIS to interpret a .htm file as a .asp file:

1) Open IIS
2) Open the Website you would like to change
3) Select Properties
4) On the Virtual Directory Tab, make sure you have an Application with Execute Permissions: "Script Only" or "Scripts and Executables"
5) Click on the Configuration Button

6) Copy the Path from the .asp Application Mapping
7) Click Add

8) Enter the Executable Path (paste from step 6) and Extension (.htm) and Click OK.
9) You might have to restart the website.

Repeat for .html extentions.

Your .htm pages will now be dynamic and able to interpret ASP Commands. You can validate that it is working by adding a simple script to the Body of your .htm page:

<% Response.Write ("Hello ASP World") %>

If you open the page in a browser and it displays
<% Response.Write ("Hello ASP World") %>
in the page it didn't parse the page correctly. If it only displays "Hello ASP World" it parsed the page correctly.

If you are on a shared hosting server you will have to get your hosting company to do this for you. If they can't or won't you may have to get a Dedicated or Virtual Dedicated server.
If you are placing your PHP code in various directories, the script may have problems locating the local XML file that you created. If this happens, open up your PHP script and make the following change:

$LOCAL_XML_FILENAME = 'local_#####.xml';
Find the above line, and change it to the following:

Make sure that "#####" matches what is currently in your script, and that the local XML file is located in the root directory of your website. This should resolve the issue.
To place ads within your Typepad blog it is necessary to add them manually. After your site is approved, login and select "manual" when asked for the language on the Install Ad Code page in your account.

PayPal's Mass Payment feature allows users to send affiliate commissions, customer rebates, survey incentives and more. Currently, Mass Payment fees are 2% of each recipient's payment amount up to a maximum of $1.00 per recipient, or the foreign currency equivalent of $1.00.

Effective January 24, 2012, fees for payments sent outside the U.S. will be 2% of each recipient's payment amount up to a maximum of $10.00 per recipient, or the foreign currency equivalent of $10.00.

Fees for Mass Payments sent within the U.S. will not change. PayPal notified all users of the amended User Agreement on December 23rd. See the PayPal User Agreement for details.

Text Link Ads will cover up to $2.00 of the payment fees. Any other fees will be subtracted from your earnings. If you are worried about these fees we suggest payoneer as cheaper method of payment

Text Link Ads are unique because they are static html links that can drive targeted traffic and help your link popularity which is a top factor in organic search engine rankings.
