  Yahoo! Merchant Solutions Plan Features

When should I upgrade to the next plan?
As your sales increase, you’ll benefit from moving to a higher plan with lower
transaction fees. The chart below shows when it makes economic sense to switch
plans. You can change plans at any time.

* Qualified merchants gain access to a premium level of support through an account manager who can
provide you with best practices for building and running your online store. Not available to all custom-
ers. Customers with over $500,000 in annual online sales with Yahoo! Merchant Solutions can qualify.
Qualification is subject to the discretion of Yahoo! Merchant Solutions.
** Offer open to new U.S. Sponsored Search advertisers only. (A new advertiser is one who has not
advertised with Yahoo! Search Marketing for the past 13 months.) Each account requires a nonrefund-
able $30 initial deposit. Advertisers signing up for Self Serve will receive a $100 credit into the ac-
count. Initial credits are nonrefundable and will be applied to click-charges. There is a minimum bid
requirement of $0.10 per click-through. Limit one offer per customer, and one use per customer on
a single account. Sellers of certain legally restricted products may require third-party certification at
extra cost. Search listings subject to editorial review. Offer may not be combined with any other offers
or discounts, separated, redeemed for cash, or transferred. Other terms and conditions may apply; see
Advertiser Terms and Conditions when you sign up.
*** Customers who use Yahoo! Merchant Solutions appropriately have access to unlimited disk space,
data transfer, and email storage. See to learn
more about appropriate usage, what’s “unlimited” — and what is not.
