you have to do a song and a dance but they will pay you. usually you have to submit your photo i.d. and then do a confirmation email they send to your home. there is other stuff but you usually have done that when its time to get paid. also if you click your own ads they will balk on everything when it comes to paying you. maybe your friend did that.. their terms are roughly the same as google and google pays. but even google will balk if they see srupid stuff with your profile like the same i.p address keeps clicking and not buying. stuff like that.
