  2. Click Create store.
  3. Enter your store info, including your Store description and SSL Checkout selection. You also have the option to block aggregators here.
  4. Click Save.
    After successful store creation, you will be taken to a page where you will be informed of the store status. You'll be able to check if your store was automatically approved/rejected or is queued up for manual review.

After your store is approved, you can create your catalog.

Things to keep in mind when creating a store

  • Store name is required and cannot be changed later and it will appear in your Product Ads, so accuracy is important.
  • Destination URL has to have been verified using Bing Webmaster Tools. It must also comply with URL formatting rules such as starting with a protocol (http:// or https://).
  • If you want to use the content API for creating and sending catalogs, you will need to get a tenant URL. Learn more

Potential Store Rejection Reasons

  • Attempting to claim an unverified domain
  • Bing Ads customer has been identified as an adult advertiser.
  • Lack of presence in the markets supported for Product Ads by Bing Ads.
  • Lack of a “real” privacy policy on website.
  • Non-encrypted (non-SSL) checkout. You will want to verify that your SSL certificates are valid.

Creating Multiple Stores:

You can create multiple stores, but you are not allowed to sell the same products through multiple stores. For example, if you sell sporting equipment you can create a Golf store and a Basketball store.
