How it works

Dwindly is a URL shortener that pays a share of its advertising revenue to its users who bring traffic to their shortened URLs.
Dwindly gives the opportunity to its users to dwindle any URL into a shorter URL. When someone clicks on the dwindled URL, a full page advertisement is shown for 4 seconds prior to clicking on a CONTINUE button and be directed to the intended destination.

For every view that is forwarded through the advertising page, the Dwindly user gets credited.
No. At no point in time Dwindly will ask you for any money. On the contrary, Dwindly will pay you for every click that gets through your dwindled URL.

Frequently Asked Questions

Every Dwindler will get paid for the first 4-10 clicks from a unique visitor. This amount depends mainly on the quality of traffic and on how many adverts are available at that particular time from our partners.
Rates vary according to the country the traffic is originating from amongst other factors. The rates per 1000 UNIQUE clicks can be found in our Payout Rates page. The rest of the visits are credited depending on how well the advertisers are willing to pay for that particular country.
We only take a very small percentage in commissions to keep the service running smoothly without any interrupts. We make sure to get the best advertisers bidding for your traffic and with the help of our algorithms we will be able to get the most out of our user's traffic.
The sky is the limit (literally) The earnings are proportional to your amount of traffic. The better your strategy to bring visitors is, the higher your income will be. The earnings potential depends on the amount of traffic you are capable of generating through your dwindled URLs.
For every user that you refer to, we will pay you 20% of their total income. Your referral will still earn the original 100% so he is not affected.

In the Referrals section, you may find your referral link and ready made referral banners to place them on your website/blog or share them through any social media.


We can pay you via Paypal, Bitcoin or Ethereum. In order to request a payment via Paypal or Ethereum, a minimum balance of $5 must be present in your account. For Bitcoin payments, the minimum amount is $15. This is due to the relatively high Bitcoin blockchain fee.

In order to receive payments, you must have a working account with Paypal or a Bitcoin/Ethereum wallet. When using Bitcoin or Ethereum for payments, make sure that the Bitcoin or Ethereum wallet address is filled in correctly as cryptocurrency payments are non-refundable. Dwindly cannot be held responsible for any loss of funds due to incorrect Bitcoin or Ethereum wallet address filled in the user's account details.
Once you have requested your payment from the Payments section, your traffic will be validated and your payment will be sent to your payment processor. We aim to validate and send the payment within 24 hours, however it may take up to 4 business days for Paypal and up to 6 business days for Bitcoin and Ethereum.
