Why does the data appear in the UI faster than it does in the API?
The UI will update your data more quickly than the API. However, you should note that the UI data is directional-only and is likely to change during the close of books for the day. Data from the API is more persistent. You can use the current APIs for intra-day updates.
What currencies does Native & Search support?
The choice of currencies varies based on the country you selected. For a list of currencies supported by Native & Search, refer to Billing FAQs.
You select the currency when you set up your account. You can’t change your currency selection after it is set during account creation. All monetary fields, like bids, budgets and spend in your Native & Search account, will be reflected in that currency.
How can I populate the Sponsored By field for Ads imported from Bing?
When you import an ad from Bing, set Sponsored By (called Company Name in the UI) to the base Display URL. For example:
Display url: yahoo.com/finance Sponsored By: yahoo.com
Can a Keyword have multiple bids at the same time?
There is only the one keyword CPC bid. Bid modifiers can change the final bid, but only 1 match type is allowed per keyword.
