Pricing

We use a cost-per-click, auction based pricing model. You set the maximum cost that you are willing to pay when a shopper clicks on an ad for your product. The more competitive your bid , the more likely your ad will be displayed when a shopper searches for one of your keywords.

At this point, we only accept credit card payments. A prepay service will be provided soon. We will charge your credit card for the cost associated with the clicks on your ads.

At this point, we only accept credit card payments. Once you are charged, a transaction will appear in your account and in your bank statement. At the end of each calendar month, a statement will be generated. 

To avoid frequent credit card charges, we will only charge you when your advertising fees reach a certain level. The default credit level is 50 yuan after registering your seller account. We may continue to adjust your credit level based on your activity and daily budget. For example, if you consistently reach your credit level, we may increase your credit level to ensure that you are not charged frequently. Credit levels are set at 150 yuan, 200 yuan, 350 yuan and the maximum level is 500 yuan. 

After you enable your seller account, we will charge you when you accrue your first 1 yuan. This allows us to validate your credit card details.
 

You need to set a daily budget for each ad to be displayed. The amount you enter is the average daily amount you are willing to spend over a calendar month period. For example, if you set your daily budget at 1,000 yuan, the total budget for that calendar month is 31,000 yuan and you may receive up to 31,000 yuan worth of clicks in that calendar month (assuming a full 31 day month). At the end of each month, we will ensure that the average daily value of your advertising spending will not exceed your desired daily amount. However, on any given day, you can spend less or more than your actual daily budget. For example, if your budget is 1,000 yuan and you receive 500 yuan worth of clicks on the 1st day of the month, you may receive up to 1,500 yuan worth of clicks on the 2nd day of the month. This would bring your total spend over 2 days to 2,000 yuan, which is in line with your daily budget.

Pricing and Payment

You only pay for clicks. The bid you set is the maximum cost that you are willing to pay for each click, and the amount accumulated will not exceed your daily budget. The actual cost per click will be calculated based on real-time bidding. Even after your ads are displayed, you can still manage your bidding and daily budget (only increase bid). At this point, we only take credit card payments. It is the same with that of Amazon Sponsored Products.

There might be different reasons. For example, Your bid is too low. In this case, we recommend that you increase your bid.
The targeted customers you set are too limited to generate enough clicks to use up your budget.
The frequency of display you set can also affect the number of click and viewing of your ads.
