If someone does not stay around 20 seconds in your video, it is very likely that YouTube discards that visit, normally between 2% and 5% of the views received are discarded by YouTube, but do not worry, for this same reason we take the initiative to always extend your promotion a little more and thus your video will reach a little more than the visits you asked for, for example; If you ask for a package of 10,000 visits, it is possible that you will reach 11,000 or 12,000 visits, so we make sure that your video never receives less than what was contracted.
All views are real, how do I check?
This is very simple, you just have to check in your Youtube Studio how many viewing hours you have before the promo and how many you have generated after the promo, there are also users who will like or dislike if they like it or not.
How long does it take to start the promotion?
The stipulated time for your promotion to be scheduled and you begin to see changes is 24 to 72 business hours, which means that it could take a little longer if you place the order on the weekend.
In case some kind of refund is needed, for understandable reasons, you should know that there is a minimum fee for transaction costs that you must pay.
