When your ads are shown more often, your total daily cost might be up to 20% more than your average daily budget. However, you won't be charged more than your average daily budget multiplied by the average number of days in a month (30.4).

Note that sometimes your daily costs might exceed the 120% cap. However, you'll still only be charged for the 20% over your daily budget. For example, if your daily budget is US$0.71, and you've accumulated US$1.10 in costs on a given day, you'll only be charged US$0.85 per day. The remaining $0.25 is returned to you as an overdelivery credit, which you can see in your transaction history.

Double check your daily budget. It seems that you misplaced the decimal point.
