    When I set bidding on CPM very low - can it be that I dont get any impressions at all?
    For example:
    Suggested Bid: ?0.03 - 0.22 EUR
    But my bid is 0.05 only - I didnt get any impressions at all since its running (~1 hour)
    On previous ads (not CPM-Campaigns) it started pretty quick...

    It can take time for the ad to start, i have had some that started showing stats like 2.5h in. So wait a little more and see what happens :)

    Just wait a little longer to make sure that enough time have passed for the ad to be indexed.
    If there's still not activity, then people are bidding higher than 0.05 and hence are getting their ads published instead of you.

    Yes it can be that the ads don't show.

    Once your ads are running on CPM and you've established a cost per click rate duplicate your campaign, but manually bid on a lower CPC rate and I guarantee you will pay less per click.

    Try it, tell me the results.

    It's probably cause people are just bidding higher than you so FB can't allocate time/space for youat the moment. Try bidding higher until you get some impressions, then IF your CTR is high enough you can bid smaller amounts as FB gives priority to Ads with high CTRs because that means they get more engagement.
