Pay for Results
Under the Cost-per-Click (CPC) model, you are only charged for each click on your advertised listings, so you pay only when your ads are effective.
Every time someone clicks on your ad during a product search, it means that they:
- Have paid attention to your ad
- Expressed interest in the product you’re selling
- Have a higher purchase intent
Setting Up Your Ad
How People See Your Ad
Search is one of the main contributors of traffic to product listings in Shopee. If buyers search for keywords that match your ad, your advertised listing will appear on their search results.
If there are more than one seller bidding for the same keyword, multiple ads may appear alongside yours on the same search result page.
Your ad ranking is determined by 2 factors:
Advertised listings with better rankings will appear at prominent places on search result pages.
On the search results page in the Shopee app, the top 2 Paid Ads will be displayed on the first 2 product listings. They are followed by 4 regular search listings. Another 1 Paid Ad will appear after that.
In short, after the top 2 Paid Ads, 1 Paid Ad will appear after every 4 search listings.
On the search results page in Shopee’s website, the top 5 Paid Ads will be displayed in the first row of the search results, followed by 40 regular search listings. The next 5 Paid Ads will display after that.
In short, 5 Paid Ads will appear after every 40 search listings.

To protect sellers, our system auto detects click fraud. Multiple clicks from a single user within a selected period of time will only be counted as one click – in other words, you will only need to pay for one click.
