  • Campaign daily budget is required.
  • Campaign daily budget is available from 100 JPY in 100 JPY unit.
  • The system divides the daily budget and controls ads to be delivered throughout the day (24 hours) to meet the budget set.
  • One day starts from 0:00 AM to 11:59 PM (JST) to calculate campaign daily budget.
  • Campaign daily budget shown in the Campaign Management Tool doesn't include tax.
  • In typical case, about 50% of the campaign daily budget is used in the first half of the day, and the rest in second half. About 70% of the campaign daily budget maybe used  in the first half of the day as a result of intensive clicks caused by seasonal or media impact.
Campaign daily budget is an approximate, and the exceeded amount is not guaranteed to be refunded. If the bid for keywords/ad groups are relatively high for the campaign daily budget, actual click cost may exceed the budget when intensive click occurs caused by seasonal/media information.

We encourage advertisers to set a balanced campaign daily budget and bids.
