Bol.com Sponsored Products ads costs
Bol.com works with a bidding system like most other online marketplaces. You decide how much you want to spend on certain keywords/products and you only pay when a visitor clicks on your ad. So there is a ‘cost per click (CPC)’ price. As soon as the customer clicks on your ad, they will be directed to your product page. There the customer decides, based on the presentation of your product and the product description, if it suits their buying needs. It is therefore important to make this information focussed on the visitor, unique and clear as possible.
