3.3.1 Rate Cards

Assign multiple prices to your ad specs, add a validity period to your prices and organize them in rate cards in order to e.g. display different plans or price changes. Rate cards limit the availability of ad specs for your campaign items in the media campaigns. For example, the media search only displays those ad specs with ad prices assigned to the rate card. It also will only show the ad prices which match the currency code of the media campaign. This mean you might filter your rate cards by currency but you don't have to and can mix multiple currencies in one rate card.
