With Contributor, users pick a monthly contribution level (either $2, $5, or $10) and those funds are used to pay for your site—instead of ads. The result is that users see fewer ads and you still get paid.

How Google Contributor Works:-

when Contributor users visit a site in Google’s network, their monthly contribution is used to bid on their behalf in the ad auction, so they end up buying the ad slot rather than a traditional advertiser. The more they contribute, the fewer ads they see, and you still get paid.
