PX platform has an advanced structure of campaign volume limits, which allows you setting both total daily limits for the campaign and source-specific limits (per traffic type, publisher, sub ID and site), which your leads are sourced from.
To manage campaign and source specific daily volume, go to Source Management, where you can view and manage the following:
Manage total daily budget and leads cap
Along with volume settings on the campaign level, you can set daily leads capacity and budget for the campaign in Source management using Daily budget and Daily leads cap columns.
The Total row of these columns shows actual daily leads capacity and budget set for this campaign - either standard (the same for all days) or custom (specific for days of the week).
To set the daily budget for the campaign, click the pencil icon on the right side of the table:
In a field that appears, enter a new daily budget and click the tick:
If you don't want to limit the daily budget for this campaign, select No limit option.
To change the total daily leads capacity for the campaign, perform the same steps for Total value in a Daily leads cap column:
When you change the total daily budget or lead capacity in Source management, these settings are automatically applied as a daily volume for this campaign.
If any daily lead capacity and/or budget is reached , leads are not posted to this campaign until the next day starts or this capacity (budget) is increased.
To configure monthly and weekly campaign volume, follow instructions in Campaign settings article.
Select the active source cap grouping
For source-specific caps and budgets, only one grouping can be active at once. Check what source grouping is active before you start setting limits
For example, to change source cap grouping from traffic type to sub ID, click the gear icon next to Daily budget or Daily leads cap:
In the pop-up window that appears, select the desired Sub ID grouping and click Confirm:
To configure source-specific caps and budgets, make sure Group by set above matches Source cap grouping selected.
Manage daily budget and leads cap per source
To set the daily leads capacity per traffic type, publisher, sub ID or site, click the pencil icon on the right side of the table:
In a field that appears, enter a new value and click the tick:
If you don't want to limit the daily budget or lead capacity for this source, select No limit option.
PX keeps tracking of the current volume and budget for both campaign and source levels. If any source-specific lead capacity and/or budget is reached, leads aren't posted to this campaign until the next day starts or this capacity (budget) is increased.
It's a useful practice to set capacity and budget per traffic type first in order to track high-level campaign performance. Then you can set caps per particular publishers that perform well for the campaign, and then - per specific sub IDs and sites.
