Use the following settings for file transfer with your FTP client:

  • Host: ftps://feeds.adcenter.microsoft.com
  • Username: Your store’s FTP user name. Your user name must be 6 - 64 characters and cannot include any special characters. Use only a - z, A- Z, and 0 - 9.
  • Password: Your store’s FTP password
  • Transfer Mode: Passive
