Google Ad Manager is an ad management platform for large publishers who have significant direct sales. Ad Manager provides granular controls and supports multiple ad networks, including AdSense, Ad Exchange, and third-party networks.
Payments come from your advertisers or ad networks, not by Google Ad Manager.

AdMob might be a better fit for you depending on the advertising business you need to manage.
