Microsoft Monetize - Fee calculations

When you create a partner fee, the fee can be based on percentage or CPM. CPM fees are always deducted from revenue. Revshare fees may be calculated in multiple ways:

  • Deducted from revenue
  • Added to net or gross media cost
  • Added to media cost and data cost

Gross media cost includes the Buyer Auction Service Charge (BASC). Net media cost covers only pure media cost.


Line item currency is inherited from the advertiser. If a fee is created in a currency other than the line item currency, then we will automatically convert the fee to the line item currency at the time of transaction.
