Front End Functionality

The best way to describe how the plugin works is to show live example. Please go to page for advertisers. This is advertiser’s signup form. You can fill up this simple form and click “Continue” button. If everything is OK, system asks you to confirm provided information and redirects to appropriate payment gateway (PayPal, AlertPay/Payza, Authorize.Net, 2Checkout or InterKassa) to complete the payment. After completed payment your banner will be included into rotation. It will be displayed during pre-paid period. At the end you get statistics by e-mail.


1. Install and activate the plugin. Once activated, it creates menu “Banners” in left side column in the admin area.

2. Click left side menu “Banners >>> Settings” and do required settings. Set your PayPal ID, AlertPay E-mail, InterKassa, Authorize.Net, 2Checkout parameters, e-mail templates, etc. Please look at the screenshot below to see what kind of settings you can do there.
Back End Functionality: Settings

3. Create new page (or use existing one) and insert shortcode there: [wpbannerspublish]. This shortcode generates sign up form for advertisers.

4. Click left side menu “Banners >>> Banner Types”. In this section you can create and manage available banner types. You must create at least one banner type.
Back End Functionality: Create Banner Type

5. After banner type created, click “Embed codes” icon. As a result you see the popup box with different embed codes for this banner type. Edit your theme files (conetent, text widget, etc.) and insert one of these embed codes in those place where you wish to see banners.

That’s it! Banner Manager Pro starts making money for you!

As an administrator you also can manage all banners.

    > advertising campaign for Lacoste Company (it is a French company

    Will your program work for this?

    • Hi Doug. Thanks for interesting in Banner Manager. I think it is better to try lite version WP Banners Lite. It works almost the same way, so you can understand if it works for you or not.

  2. Hi,
    Your plugin is great, i just purchased it!

    I do have a problem:
    I would like to sell banners on monthly basis (not 10 days period as it is now) and when user is adding new banner, they would choose how many months instead of days.

    Can this be fixed?

    Also, it would be great to add a number of certain banner available… ie. i have one banner space with 15 banners available, so when someone purchase one banner 14 more banners are left and so on… is this possible?

    Many thanks,

    • Hi Alek,

      Thanks for purchasing Banner Manager plugin. When I created this plugin my idea was to make it as much flexible as it possible for people who purchases banners. Somebody wants to display banner only 1 day, but another one 30 days, etc. And all of them has freedom to choose desired period. If you look on this form you see, that people can choose any number of days. But you always can set minimum number of days via admin panel.
      About second part. For example, I see free spot which says “Your Ad Here”. I upload my banner and pay for 30 days. When I do that I dont want to share this time with someone else.
      It was my ideas that I implemented in this plugin.

  3. Hi Ivan,

    Your plugin is great. This puts the website owner in control of advertising without going to a 3rd party.

    I wonder if on a latter update/version you could place an automated payment reminder when the campaign is about to expire, so that the person that purchased the space ad can either continue or leave the campaign.

    Let me know your thoughts on this.



    • Hi Gerson,
      Thanks for feedback. Probably I will add such feature in the future. Right now plugin send notification (and statistics) to advertisers right after his/her campaign finished. That might be a signal to continue or leave the campaign.

  4. Hello Ivan, I have multiple websites. Do I have to purchase a license for each website? Thank you

    • Hi Mark. You can use the plugin with any number of your own sites. You can not:
      1. Resell the plugin.
      2. Use the plugin on your customers’ websites (if you are website designer).

  5. Hi Ivan, just want to say thanks for the excellent plugin. We’ve just installed this on site and it works really well. Nice work! πŸ˜€

  6. Just purchased your banner manager and having some trouble. It will only show one of the two banners I have added. The lite version was showing both but this version isn’t working. Can you help me out as I’m sure it’s something I’ve done wrong lol.

      Hi Teri,

      Thank you for purchasing Banner Manager. This plugin is targeted to advertisers and works bit different. It allows to display only one banner per spot (if you add other banners for the same spot via admin panel they will have status “Pending”). It works like that to avoid claims from advertisers. What do I mean? Let’s imagine that I’m your advertiser and purchased 30 days of banner rotation. As an advertiser I don’t want to share these 30 days with another users. I want all period to be mine. That’s why plugin works like that.

  7. Hi Ivan, I finally figured that out lol. My issue now is that I made up a placeholder banner that tells them to click on it to go to the sign up page. So now its saying there is no space available? Also, I tried to set up a second banner set in a text widget could this be a problem? Can I have more than one spots for banners? I think I need some help lol.

  8. I just wanted to know if this plugin can be used for links also. Banners are great but for seo reasons a lot of people would rather advertise a text link instead of a banner.

    Do you have a plugin that does that in the sidebar?

    • Ivan Churakov

      Hi Chris. This plugin is for banners only. For text Ads you can try Simple String. For sidebar you can use Banner Manager, but not Simple String.

      • Do you have plans to make a text link plugin for the sidebar? Or maybe a contextual link plugin?

        • Ivan Churakov

          I have an idea to create plugin “Backlinks Shop”, but I don’t know when I have time to do it.

  9. Ivan, this is missing something. It needs the ability to accept google ads or ad codes in general. This is fill the gap if no one buys an ad spot then the admin can display google ads in the mean time.
    Are you planning on adding this feature, if so when ?

  10. Hi,
    Interested to buy banner manager but I don’t want to use paypal function.

    Instead of paypal, I want the other website can add backlink for me, its kind of your simple string plugin but I want to buy this banner manager customized.
    So your banner manager just like plug/trade link banner manager.
    Can you do that? I’ll pay for that if you can customized your plugin

    • Ivan Churakov

      Hi. Unfortunately, Banner Manager is for selling banners and it doesn’t have function that you are asking.

  11. Hi,
    This plugin is working with multisite?
    Thank you!

  12. Does Banner manager has a stats to report?
