Whether prospecting new customers or remarketing to existing customers, the solution helps you build relevant ads for each shopper.

     

     

  • Social Ads for Buy with Prime is a useful feature to help find new shoppers, as well as for re-engaging shoppers who have already viewed your products but didn’t place an order. Because these ads leverage your Buy with Prime product catalog, they’re also a great feature if you're just starting out with marketing or if you have limited creative content for building ads.

  • You can create social ads featuring the Buy with Prime badge on Facebook and Instagram.

  • To use Social Ads for Buy with Prime, you need:

    • Products offering Buy with Prime: All products in your Buy with Prime catalog that offer Prime can be used for these social ads.
    • Active Meta account: Meta syncs with your Buy with Prime product catalog to help you automatically create ads for your products.
  • Only products you have set up to offer Buy with Prime sync with your Meta catalog and show in your ad campaigns. You must have at least one product synced to your Meta catalog in order for your ad campaigns to run. Make sure you have all of Meta’s required attributes synced from your Buy with Prime catalog, including product descriptions and URLs.

  • When you set up the app, Meta’s Conversion API is set up automatically to share your order data with Meta. Even if you do not use the app to launch ad campaigns, you can still use the Conversion API to share your Buy with Prime orders with Meta. Note: When you use the Conversion API and Advanced Matching with the Social Ads for Buy with Prime app, the order information you share with Meta will contain your customer’s email address, name, and shipping address. If you also have the Meta Pixel set up for Buy with Prime, you will duplicate sending that order event to Meta, but the Pixel order information will not include these fields. To help avoid Meta treating your Conversion API event as redundant and discarding these fields during its deduplication process, we recommend not using Meta Pixel for Buy with Prime while you use Conversion API and Advanced Matching.

  • You are responsible for writing the copy that accompanies social ads for your Buy with Prime product listings. Refer to the Buy with Prime brand guidelines in the Marketing section of merchant console for brand and messaging guidance.

  • You can choose to either remarket ads to people who interacted with your products or brand on or off Facebook or Instagram or to find prospective customers even if they haven’t interacted with your business. Both are useful strategies that can also be expanded when you select the option to “Reach people beyond these targeting selections when it’s likely to improve performance.” Doing so can help place your ads beyond your core audience to reach viewers who might improve your return on ad spend (ROAS).
