Minimum cost per click

The minimum CPC for a product offer on Yandex.Market:

  • minimum 0.01 Yandex units

  • maximum 0.9 Yandex units

  • varies based on the product category and ad location

  • calculated based on a formula

Minimum cost per click in the product profile

The minimum CPC is the same for all offers that are displayed on product profiles and within the user's region.

The amount is based on the price of the lowest offer as determined using this formula:

cbid_min = 0.0399 × price_min2/3 / 100

where:

  • cbid_min is the minimum CPC on any offer displayed on a product profile that is in the user's region (in Yandex units).

  • price_min is the lowest-price offer on the product profile in question that is within the user's region (in RUB).

The amount of the minimum CPC does not exceed 0.9 Yandex units in the product profile.

Example

Let's say that there are two offers included on the product profile for a particular laptop model: one store is selling it for 50,000 rubles, and another for 40,000 rubles. The minimum CPC will be based on the 40,000 rubles and will apply to both of these offers.
