Why does my budget seem off?

  • The daily budget is specified in cents for most currencies. Check out the list here. If your currency has an offset of one, you will need to edit the Klip. See below for details.
  • The budget value is calculated based on the number of days in the month and your Daily Spend (as configured in Facebook Ads). You can override this budget value by entering a budget in the text field below the gauge.
