AdWords for Video budget overspend

Participant ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi

 

Activated a  "AdWords for Video"-campaign that had been paused for a while yesterday. The budget was set to 25. This morning, about 12 hours later, it had spent about 200. 

I thought one could not be charged more than +20% of daily budget per day?

Hi David,

 

I actually saw someone from this community in a similar situation recently if I remember correctly. I'm just trying to find the thread for you.

 

Edit: It seems that there have been more than one post created on this subject, it might be best to have it passed to the support team if nobody can help here.

Hi David, just seen this happen to me, a client with a budget of just $10 per day spent $109.09 in a single day.

 

I'll have a poke around and see what's going on.

Hi David, did you change the budget on the day this happened?  Doesn't matter (I don't think) if you changed it up or down, or what you changed it to, but when it's been happening to me it's always been on a day I've altered the budget.

Hi

Don´t think so. Just activated is as far as I can remember. At least the budget never was THAT high.

My colleague Calin (Adwiser) has just asked a good question - are you actually being charged this overspend, or are your billed amounts closer to you actual budget.

 

I haven't had time yet to do this myself but it's an important question!

Hmm, it´s a bit hard to say. But actually, it doesn´t look like I am being charged that amount. Strange...
