The Belmont, CA, company opened its Advertising Marketplace in March 2000. AdFlight's service was designed to give advertisers the ability to buy, execute and refine banner campaigns inexpensively and to give Web site publishers a place to sell unsold inventory. Advertisers were able to upload banners at adflight.com, which would distribute the banners among 30 Web site categories such as finance and sports. Web site publishers only had to register at the site and install an ad serving code to begin serving the ads.
The company had partnerships with 50,000 Web sites. Publishers earned a minimum of 21 cents per click for joining the network.
