Response fields

Output container/fieldTypeDescription
suggestedBudgetarray of BudgetRecommendationResponse

The suggested allocated daily budget for an Offsite Ads campaign.

Occurrence: Conditional


The allocated daily budget for the Cost Per Click (CPC) Promoted Listings campaign.

Occurrence: Conditional


The daily budget limit for the Cost Per Click (CPC) Promoted Listings campaign.

Required if the campaign's funding model is CPC.

This will be a dollar value. All clicks using the keywords defined for the campaign will go towards expending the daily budget. Once the daily budget is exceeded for the campaign, all Promoted Listings under the campaign will be turned off until the next day.

When running an Offsite Ads campaign, eBay may spend more or less than the seller's daily budget to capitalize on interested buyers, but will not exceed 2x the daily budget. The average over the course of the campaign will not exceed the provided daily budget. This value is used to calculate a total monthly budget by multiplying 30.4 by the provided daily budget. Over the course of the campaign, eBay will not charge more than this total budget per month.

If a campaign ends prematurely, however, the seller may be charged up to 2x their daily budget on a daily basis, as the campaign may have not had the chance to average the budget out over time.
