I just love the spelling of "Advertiser". ;)

Do Americans spell it with a zed?

Mostly, yes.

I don't think so, I'm fairly sure ``advertise'' is the most common
spelling everywhere.  ``Advertize'' may be a strange US variant, but I
don't think it's the norm.

"Advertiser" and "advertise" are the correct US English spellings.
