Description of the product:

Our Pay per Click (PPC) product range contains four products, Featured Listing, You May Also Like, Featured Dealer, these products can be bought separately or combined. Lead Generator is a bundled package that contains the Featured Listing, You May Also Like and Featured Dealer products.

  • Products are normally offered on a cost per click basis but provision can be made for inclusion as part of a package.
  • These products are paid for on a pay per click basis based on the following rule ” Each visitor to the Auto Trader Website is assigned a session ID. The default for chargeable clicks is set at 5 minutes. The Advertiser shall not be charged for more than 3 clicks within a 5 minute period from a single user (as solely determined by the session ID). clicks delivered over the contracted budget are not chargeable.
  • We stop delivering clicks when the contracted budget is reached. However, over-delivery can occur but these additional clicks are not chargeable.
  • The Publisher shall be entitled to remove an Advertisement as a Featured Listing and/or You May Also Like and/or Featured Dealer product as soon as the maximum number of clicks as set out on the Application Form or Addendum has been met.
