Cost per Day [CPD] is a revenue model in which the Advertiser is interested in buying a quantity (no of days to be run) at a fixed per day price.

Feature Overview

CPD is a new revenue type applied at campaign level. Users will be able to define days to be targeted and set a minimum impression threshold at campaign level.

A Day will be considered valid only if the total impressions of all ads inside the campaign is greater than the minimum impression threshold define for the campaign.

1. Revenue distribution by Impressions delivered

  • In this option we will distribute the revenue in a percentage of impressions served. (e.g. An ad with higher impressions will get more revenue than the one with fewer impressions).
  • We will distribute Revenue by ad first and then by channel.

2. Equal revenue distribution

  • In this option we will distribute revenue equally for the ads first and then channels targeted to the ad.
