3.1.4 Ad Price

Ad Prices are related to your AdSpecs and assign them to a rate card, with a certain price, billing category, and currency. Here you store all pricing information. You are able to sell an ad spec in different rate cards, billing categories, or for many different prices. If you are familiar with the standard Salesforce Opportunity process their Opportunity line item, Pricebook, and Product concept is similar. 

Ad Prices

Navigate to the App Manager and open Ad Prices. Click on New or Edit an existing Ad Price. Alternatively use the Overview Tab or the related list of an AdSpec as prices are listed in the related list Ad Prices under the ad spec's detail section.

Fill in the following information

  1. Enter a list price and currency (if relevant).
  2. You may assign ad specs to a rate card and enter a rate criterion if you have something that defines the price. Typically used in Print for Black and White vs Color Prices. Rate cards bundle prices i.e. for a certain year or special occasions or clients.

To deactivate this validation please see Feature Setting to disable Ad Price Validation.
  4. The billing category differentiates between types of accounting. You can choose between fixed prices and variable billing categories, such as Cost per Click (CPC). Read more about your Billing Categories here.
  5. Prices can also be deactivated if they are not to be used for a certain period. As a result, you keep previous prices in your database. Hence, you are able to track the development of your prices. Please also refer to 3.1.9 Active and inactive inventory items.
  6. Depending on the billing category add a list price.

You can create multiple ad prices for your ad spec. For example, you can create a CPM price both for US Dollar and Euro. Or create multiple ad prices for different rate criteria.
