Excluding discounts and tariff discounts, if an advertiser buys 1 million advertising impressions at EUR 2.00 CPM, the cost of the campaign will be EUR 2000.

It refers to the cost an advertiser pays for one thousand views/clicks/impressions of an advertisement.The purpose of the CPM metric is to compare costs of advertising campaigns within and across different media. A typical advertising campaign might try to reach potential consumers in multiple locations and through various media. The cost per thousand impressions (CPM) metric enables marketers to make cost comparisons between these media, both at the planning stage and during reviews of past campaigns. Marketers calculate CPM by dividing advertising campaign costs by the number of impressions (or opportunities-to-see) that are delivered by each part of the campaign. Thus, CPM is the cost of a media campaign, relative to its success in generating impressions to see. As the impression counts are generally sizeable, marketers customarily work with the CPM impressions. Dividing by 1,000 is an industry standard.
CPV is the acronym commonly used to refer to (cost per view) or (cost per view) in advertising, but for some time it may also be a cost per visit. The CPV is an advertising space billing method that was first used for advertising banners on the Internet at the time when it was considered that a banner displayed was a banner seen. The concept of CPV was then linked to that of CPM. The concept of CPV was then used to address the problem of the visibility of display advertising and in this context, only commercials technically analyzed as visible in the sense of the MRC are counted and invoiced (for more details see the CPMV principle). The CPV is also used for video advertising (see CPV video) and now wins the digital display in outdoor advertising.
