How we do it, Who we are

Admatic is simple. Faster, Better, Cheaper.

Faster because it’s ‘always on’ 247 and we’re here to support you 247. Better because you get your own strictly private Dashboard to manage your bookings and all of your Ad copy. Cheaper because we’ve reduced Agency margins and because of our wholesale buying power.

1. You just browse the media choice you want from the relevantl media section on the homepage, you see the price, you click to book it and you pay for it at the discounted wholesale rate shown in minutes.

2. You then upload your Ad copy onto the platform under your private Dashboard so you’ll always be able to track your Ads.

3. Done. Simple. 247.

Our Guaranteed Pricing.

Some Media like TV, you have to enquire because there’s no ‘ratecard’ as such. We do it every day, for over 100 Clients to whom we are most grateful.

Price Guarantee! Our discount and live media cost shown, is guaranteed at your time of booking/purchase even if you’re buying media up to 12 months ahead (with TV an exception). We will ALWAYS try and do even better for you after booking with bonuses.

You book per appearance day on the drop down Calendar or for ‘packages’ by week, starting Monday. You’ll see them all in your cart, where you pay from. Check it first to be sure! If it’s wrong, it’s probably that you’ve booked extra days. You will then have your own Dashboard to manage all of your bookings.

If there’s a problem, don’t worry, we will sort it out for you.

Please do understand that prices will change upwards always, especially post pandemic, so you may find that if you return later to actually book, the price may have increased. Dublin Radio stations and newspapers have increased their pricing in 2022 by 7/10% for example. So we estimate and guarantee our discounted price based on current buying rates as shown. If you advance buy, you only pay that price at booking even if prices increase further before you Ad appears.

So by booking now, we get the best market wholesale prices at the time of your booking and hence your rate is protected at the time of buying. Book early too if you can (8/6 weeks in advance) and you’ll do even better (and notably for Virgin/RTE ‘Advance Booking AB’ deadlines) so you’ll save even more – if you can.

How we take Payment.

For media under 5k, you can pay by Credit Card instantly on the platform via Stripe OR, we can send you an Invoice for EFT (transfer). For bookings over 5k, we Invoice you. Payment is received before publication and invoice/receipt sent automatically to your registered email.

COVID Pricing is still fluid at the moment (but rates are increasing from September 2022 as we bounce back) and whilst our prices as shown are guaranteed, we may do even better for you after booking, with some bonus Ads. We always try.

Therefore, if you book, your payment initially (processed independently by your Bank or by our friends in Stripe and Fire.com) confirms the booking. If you make a mistake, don’t panic either because that can happen and we will sort it for you.

If you ‘enquire now’ payment is not taken and we respond to you to confirm first. But therefore, a booking is not confirmed until payment is made.

If you’re paying in a different currency to Euro (such as £sterling), it’s converted to Euro at the daily market rate in real time as payment is made. We do not profit from Forex. We do accept Crypto.

All bookings are subject to availability which has not been an issue during the pandemic. However, it may be for key TV shows (Sports) or key media positions. If that should happen, we will refund you in full immediately, if it can’t be resolved.

VAT Exclusive, VAT Invoice.

All costs are shown as VAT exclusive which is currently charged @23%. Once you’ve bought media, we will then send you a confirmation email and a VAT invoice automatically to the email you registered with, within minutes. Vat Exempt? No problem, just let us know.

If you wish to apply for credit, because of volume, please do so. All first transactions are pre-paid, 30 days credit terms can be agreed, on approval.

How to supply your Ad copy.

We/you must supply Ad copy to each of the media owners you select in time (copy deadlines). Just upload your Ad/s onto this platform in your Dashboard and that’s it done. Or, send it by WeTransfer and we’ll take it from there, or your Agency will know how to send to media – but once you book, we will always be in touch.

Do look at the Copy Dispatch section, noting the need for TV/Radio Copy Clearance. Or, If you want us to create Advertising, or complete Copy clearance (for TV/Radio) please see our ‘Creating your Advertising’ or Copy Clearance sections on the homepage. It’s important to have your Ad ready, before booking media if the campaign is starting close to publication or air date. If you’re buying media, we will include copy production at no cost to you.

If you cancel an Ad booking.

That happens so don’t panic! If you need to cancel a booking, media owners (not us) can/may charge a cancellation fee unfortunately. Sometimes 50% of the original cost, sometimes more, but that fee will depend on the time you cancel before your advertising is due to appear.

If you are simply moving dates (postponement) that is considered more favourably and usually doesn’t have a fee. We will always argue it for you too.

If your Ad is refused because all Media Owners always have the right to refuse your copy or your booking. Although this is most unusual, it normally relates to products that are in breach of advertising codes, or contravene other special media owner codes regarding political advertising, alcohol, or offensive material. If that should happen, we will refund you in full without quibble. Or, if you prefer, set about finding the issues and fixing them for you.

If you want to use different commercial lengths on Radio/TV.

All costs are based on 30 second lengths which is probably 95%+ of all commercials. If you wish to use other lengths, you can of course, but you need to convert the 30 second cost as shown below as a percentage cost of the 30 second rate.
