Why Tencents China Ads Pay More

I was just playing a game and the large full page ad came up. I could not delete it. There was a clock counting down which forces the ad to be seen much longer than Google ads.

unity ads does this too, as does some of the chartboost (and I am sure countless others)

Good to know. I cannot see what happens outside of China, all I know is that I get more money here per game than I do outside of China and I am trying to understand why. My co producer says that tencents is hated inside of China because of their ad method and I thought this was one of them. Today I could not shut down the full page ad for a number of seconds which I think the laws outside would not permit.

have you actually physically been paid by them?

It seems to me the pay rates in China should be far less than countries like USA (because it costs less to advertise).

Every month Tencents deposits money into my account. They just gave a report a few days ago and the money was deposit.
