This is a contribution you make towards a Yuku community that will help remove ads from that community for a set amount of time, depending on how much you contribute. However, all boards receive their first 30 days on Yuku ad-free at no cost!
What Is A Gold Ad-Free Community And How Does This Work?
A Gold Ad-Free Community is a community from which ads have been removed through a qualifying contribution.
If a community has less than 50,000 monthly page views, ads will be removed for all visitors alike after a qualifying contribution has been made.
If a community has more than 50,000 monthly page views, ads will be removed for all visitors alike after a qualifying contribution has been made. However, admins may choose to extend the contributions by removing ads only for specific groups of visitors (e.g., community members only) or all visitors.
What Is The Gold Ad-Free Community Pricing Model?
For Yuku communities that generate fewer than 50,000 monthly page views, there is a flat rate of $6 per month. Board creators can opt to subscribe to the Gold Ad-Free Community offer at any time. In addition, any Yuku member can contribute to the Gold Ad-Free Community subscription.
What Is The Pricing Model For Communities That Generate Over 50,000 Monthly Page Views?
Large Yuku communities that generate over 50,000 page views a month can participate in the Gold Ad-Free Community offering using easy credit card or PayPal payments. Advertising can be removed at a rate of $0.20 per 1,000 Ad-free pages served. The minimum contribution is US $1.00. Board administrators as well as Yuku members can contribute to the Gold Ad-Free Community offer for a board at any time.
What Happens To My Gold Ad-Free Community Subscription If My Board Grows Beyond 50,000 Page Views A Month?
Any unused Gold Ad-Free Community contributions for a community that grows beyond 50,000 page views a month will be applied toward removing ads at a rate of $0.20 per 1,000 page views.
What Happens To My Gold Ad-Free Community Subscription When My Community Drops Below 50,000 Monthly Pageviews?
Communities that drop below 50,000 page views a month will go back to the flat rate of $6 a month.
Who Can Make Contributions?
Help your members help you and the community. With Yuku's Gold Ad-Free Community feature, anyone can contribute to a community and help support and share the ad-free community experience.
Are There Any Benefits For Contributors?
Yes there are. For every $6 a member contributes, the member will receive 1 free month of Yuku supporter.
Be sure to review our FAQs below for further details, and our Subscription Terms of Service pertaining to any Yuku Subscriptions you may purchase.
How Long Does It Take For A Purchase (Supporter Or Gold) To Be Applied?
When using a credit card or PayPal, your purchase will be applied instantly (except for eChecks through PayPal).
How Do We Pay?
Payments can be made using the PayPal Online Payment service. You can make a one-time payment, or you can make automated recurring payments. You can also make credit card payments through PayPal.
Where Do We Pay?
Making a contribution to a community happens at the community itself. You will find a "contribute now" link towards the top left of the communities. Clicking that link will take you to the contribution page. If you do not see a contribute link, it means that the community does not accept contributions. To purchase Yuku Supporter, go to your account. You will find the supporter link in the Forum section of your account settings.
Can I Cancel My Subscription?
If you have a subscription, you can cancel it at any time via your PayPal account.
Can I Get A Refund?
All purchases are final and non-refundable in whole or in part. You may, however, request a transfer of your remaining balance to any Yuku account (for supporter balance) or to any Yuku community (for gold balance).

$0.20 per 1,000 ad-free pages served
$10 per 50,000 pages served
