Seller announcement: Quick setup for Promoted Listings Advancedᴮᴱᵀᴬ is available

We’ve heard your feedback on wanting a simpler way to create new Advanced campaigns. Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Quick setup for Advanced campaigns just in time for the busy holiday season. With just a few clicks, it’s now easier than ever to create a Promoted Listings AdvancedBETA campaign.

Here’s how Quick setup works

  • Select Create a new Promoted Listings AdvancedBETA campaign on the Advertising Dashboard in the Seller Hub.

  • Name your campaign, choose your budget and set your start and end dates.

  • Choose Quick setup and add your desired listings to the campaign.

  • eBay will take care of the rest of setup – organizing your listings into ad groups and selecting the suggested keywords, keyword match types and bids.

  • Finally, review and launch your campaign. Sellers do have the ability to make changes to the campaign in the review phase if desired before launching.

While eBay helps with the campaign setup, and our algorithm will help optimize the campaign structure based on best practices, you should still monitor your campaign performance.

Factors like quality, keyword relevance, your bid amount, other seller’s bids, and a reserve price (the minimum amount we’ve determined a click is worth, taking item quality, competition, seasonality, and marketplace thresholds into consideration) will continue to play a role in whether your ad will win the auction and appear in the top slots of a buyer’s search results. 

Sellers can still use manual setup to create ad groups, select listings, keywords and keyword match types, and set keyword bids if that is their preferred approach.

Additional Promoted Listings AdvancedBETA enhancements

Quick setup is just one of the recent enhancements to Promoted Listings AdvancedBETA sellers can leverage to help drive sales during one of the busiest times of the year – holiday. Some of the recent enhancements include:
