9. What is the difference between a floating price ad and a fixed price ad?
As an advertiser, you can define your own rates. You can select the two price type: (1) fixed price or (2) floating price, when you create an ad.
The ad price will be the unit price that your buyers and sellers will get when they place an order on your ads. The ad price will determine the ranking of the ad in the P2P marketplace.
(1) Fixed price ads
When fixed price is selected, the unit price you enter will be your ad price per unit. Your ad price will remain fixed and not be influenced by market fluctuations.
(2) Floating price ads
The floating price model enables you to add a margin to the market price that you define. You can set your market price as the current market price allowing it to fluctuate as the market goes up and down or define your own unit price.
The margin is the additional percentage you want to impose on the market price.
Your ad price will be the market price * margin.
Hence, your ad price may fluctuate with the market price.
