The Bing Ads team has been continuously working to improve your Product Ads experience. Bing Shopping Campaigns are an optimal way to organize, track, and optimize your Product Ads directly in Bing Ads. Today, we are excited to announce that we will be enabling Shopping Campaigns on Bing Ads for a limited number of advertisers, and extending to all advertisers over the coming months.
Bing Shopping Campaigns are a new campaign type within Bing Ads that makes it easier for you to advertise your products from your Bing Merchant Center store online. They are the latest and greatest way of creating and managing Product Ads that streamlines the process to make it easier and faster for you to get those ads up and running.
