I had created a campaign for a video with a daily budget of 2.50. I had the video unpaused for not even a day, when I returned from work I had almost 2000 views of the video, but also says the total cost is 159.49 how is this possible? I thought The maximum amount I could be charged for any given day was 2.50. Can someone please tell me whats going on? Thank you very much! - Shane

You are correct;

The maximum daily charge  will not exceed the daily budget by more than 20%. (To compensate on days with low spending.)  The total monthly charge will NOT exceed the daily budget * 30.4 (30.4 = average  days per month)


I have the feeling, that you set a daily budget of $250. Double check!
