Note: This method is only available for select partners who have been approved for the eBay priority strategy program. For information about how to request access to this program, refer to Priority Strategy Access Requests in the Promoted Listings Playbook. To determine if a seller qualifies for priority strategy, use the getAdvertisingEligibility method in Account API.
This method updates the daily budget for a priority strategy campaign that uses the Cost Per Click (CPC) funding model.

A click occurs when an eBay user finds and clicks on the seller’s listing (within the search results) after using a keyword that the seller has created for the campaign. For each ad in an ad group in the campaign, each click triggers a cost, which gets subtracted from the campaign’s daily budget. If the cost of the clicks exceeds the daily budget, the Promoted Listings campaign will be paused until the next day.

Specify the campaign_id as a path parameter. You can retrieve the campaign IDs for a seller by calling the getCampaigns method.
