PayCampaigns (Live)

Paying for campaigns using an advertising agency's credit limit, or the advertiser's overdraft.

This method allows advertising agencies and direct advertisers to add funds to the campaign balance with deferred payment (see Paying by credit and overdraft).


Direct advertisers can pay for a campaign only when it has been approved by a moderator (see the campaign parameter StatusModerate).

Recommendations and restrictions

Attention. All campaigns specified in the same method call must be of the same type. More information about campaign types

We recommend paying for campaigns using as few calls of the PayCampaign method per day as possible. This recommendation is aimed at improving the performance of the Yandex.Direct API. In terms of productivity, it is better to pay for several campaigns at once using a single method call than to make multiple calls to pay for each campaign individually.

Restrictions on method calls:

Exceeding these limits results in the error 56.

Currency restrictions

Attention. There is no provision for paying for multiple campaigns in different currencies using a single method call.

All campaigns specified in the same method call must be in the same currency.

Payment amounts (the Sum parameter) should be specified in the campaign currency (by setting the corresponding value for the Currency parameter). All amounts must be specified in the same currency.

New in the Live 4 version
