How to launch impressions

Send the ad for for moderation. This process will take 2 to 3 hours. While waiting, you can calculate your approximate monthly advertising expenses using the Budget forecast tool.

After your ad has passed moderation you will receive an email notification. The next step is to pay for ads.

When will my ad start being displayed?

Your ad will display as soon as Yandex receives the payment. Impressions are launched automatically; this process can take from 5 to 180 minutes (with the average being 40 minutes).

If you don't want your ads to be served immediately, then set your launch date in settings.

How is my advertising budget allocated?

Your account is debited for every click on your ad. It depends on the display strategy you chose. When using automatic strategies, the system sets the CPC.

Under manual bid management, the CPC will be no higher than the one that you set in the interface. The higher the bid, the more traffic your ad can get. This means that you will reach more potential customers.
