Can an auto target be used in more than one pla campaign?

 In this instance, I created separate US and Canada Campaigns. Problem is that using identical auto targets, my US campaigns validate product in merchant center and have been serving for some time, but my new Canada campaign will not. 

 

Any ideas?

Hey D,

We have tried doing this for one of our campaign and we were able to do so. Can you check your product settings on merchant center and your auto target to check if you can show ads in Canada?

I did notice that in the merchant center under the adwords settings page that only my US campaign is showing , so I feel like that's where the hold up is. The Campaign settings in Adwords look correct, so I'm not exactly sure what the issue is. May be time to pick up the phone and ask for a Google rep to share their expertise. I'll let you know how I end up.

Rep says adwords settings look fine, merchant center is fine. Their tip, adwords labels can take around 48 hours to validate (even if already in use for another campaign) so to just wait a little while and get back in touch if that doesn't resolve the issue.

Ah well, at least now we know that the setup is right!
