Payout rates for URL shorteners are usually mainly based on Unique Visitors, Visitor’s Location, Ad-Blockers, Advertiser Specs/Orders and some other factors. Each URL shortener may handle these factors/policies differently which means your earnings could vary greatly from one URL shortening service to another. As a general rule-of-thumb, you should expect to earn around $0.60 – $2.00 per 1000 views for most URL shorteners. But it is very possible to earn hundreds of dollars from URL shorteners with enough work and effort.

Pros and Cons
- Website looks nice and sign up was a breeze.
- Shortened link worked perfectly, no pop-ups and didn’t have to disable ad-block to proceed, and I was still paid.
- Stats are updated quite frequently- if not in real time.
- Severe lack of customization/organization options.
- Had to log into uskip with Firefox in order to shrink my link. I’m sure it’s because I haven’t updated something (flash i’m looking at you), but it was an inconvenience.
- Website uses the same/similar template and design that other shorteners like shink.in/fas.li use. I am honestly baffled by this.
I can overlook the fact that this website feels like a clone of some of the other websites I’ve reviewed for the simple fact that everything worked without trying to open pop-ups or get me to disable Ad-block. The rates aren’t the best and you won’t earn from multiple views from the same visitor, but uskip.me is still an acceptable choice for a URL shortener. If the majority of your traffic is from kuwait, uskip.me might be the shortener for you.
- You’ll need to create an uskip.me account, click here to register.
- Now figure out what kind of links you will be shrinking and how you plan on sharing them. Example: you can shrink links to a funny video or picture and post that link on your social media accounts.
- Paste the long URL in the appropriate area and shrink the URL. Copy and share the link to start earning.
- (Optional) Shrink your uskip.me link with another URL shortener such as Bit.ly to hide that your link is a uskip.me link – increasing the amount of clicks you’ll receive.
