bid, cbid

You can specify bid values in the price list (any format). Use the following elements to do this:

  • bid, total bid per click.

  • cbid, bid per click on the product profile.

Note. The elements in YML format are attributes of the offer element.

How to configure bid, cbid

Specify values in U.S. dollar cents. For example, the value "80" means a bid of USD 0.8. The values must be whole and positive integers.

If one of the elements is not provided:

  • If bid is specified, but cbid is not, then all clicks are charged at the rate specified in bid.

  • If cbid is specified, but bid is not, then cbid is used to charge clicks in the product profile, but everywhere else the minimum cost per click is used.
