Set up a Promotional Ads Feed as a Partner

If you want to receive information on new or newly updated assets uploaded by brands you partner with, consider setting up Ad Update Data Feeds.

The only assets that will be included in these feeds are those marked with promotional themes by a brand or have a deal associated with them. To see which assets are tagged as such, use the Deal and Deal Type filters on the Manage Assets screen.

Tip

Refer to the promotional ads feed FAQs for more information.
