There are three main payment schedule options available with Taboola: Monthly Invoice Billing, Prepayment Billing and Automatic Billing.
Monthly Invoice Billing
With Monthly Invoice Billing, Taboola will charge you via invoice on a monthly basis. Each invoice will reflect your total advertising spend for one month of service. If you make any payments mid-month, they will be reflected on your month-end invoice.
Monthly invoices are typically finalized and sent by email via our billing system during the first week of the month. The invoice will reflect the charges and payments for the previous month.
Setting Up Monthly Invoice Billing
Monthly Invoice Billing is only available when you have a dedicated Sales Executive and Account Manager. They must approve your account for Monthly Invoice Billing, and the setup of Monthly Invoice Billing will be discussed during your signup process.
If you are a current client and would like to set up Monthly Invoice Billing, please reach out to your Account Manager for approval. Please note that a request for approval does not mean you will be approved for Monthly Invoice Billing.
With Prepayment Billing, you will need to pay before your campaigns can run.
For example, if you pay $500 to start, you will be able to run campaigns with up to $500 in spend before needing to make another payment to keep your campaigns live.
Your Account Manager or local billing team can let you know when you are approaching your spending limit, based on what you have already paid.
Setting Up Prepayment Billing
Prepayment Billing is only available when you have a dedicated Sales Executive and Account Manager. The setup of Prepayment Billing will be discussed during your signup process.
With Automatic Billing, you will have a set billing increment which is the total amount your campaigns can spend before you have to pay again. Billing increments are typically $100.
The only accepted payment method for Automatic Billing is credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover).
Over the course of the month, your credit card will be charged automatically every time your campaign spends the amount of your billing increment. At the end of the month, you will be automatically charged for the remaining balance, even if you have not reached your billing increment.
For example, if your billing increment is $100 and you spend $250 throughout the month, then your credit card will be automatically charged $100 once you reach $100 in spend, $100 again at $200 in spend and $50 at $250 in spend once the end of the month is reached.
Visual of example:
Sum of Campaign Spend
Credit Card Charge
$250 (end of month)
$50 (to cover final monthly spend)
After every charge to your credit card, a receipt will be emailed to the cardholder on file and will also be posted to the "Payments" tab of your dashboard. These individual receipts serve as your invoicing.
If you need to know your billing increment or would like to change your billing increment, please reach out to your Account Manager or email@example.com. Please note that a request to increase your billing increment does not mean it will be approved.
The Automatic Billing option is available to all Taboola clients. To set up this payment option, reach out to your Account Manager or firstname.lastname@example.org. They can activate this for you, and then you can input your credit card information into Backstage. Learn how to enter a credit card in Backstage here.

There are no fees for payments made via ACH or check. Advertisers who are on Monthly Credit Limit or Prepayment terms can contact their account managers to set up this form of payment.
Advertisers (excluding self-service accounts) who pay with a credit card may incur an additional processing fee of ~2-3.5% depending on region.
- For clients on Automatic Billing, this will be charged on top of your total spend (for instance, for every $100 of spend, we will charge you ~$103).
- For advertisers who Prepay, this will be deducted from your total available spend (for instance, when you add $100 you will have an available balance of ~$97).
