Re: Swapped to CPA and now no Impressions

Hi, Im told CPA bidding should work now with PLAs?

 

But when I try to set it up on a campaign I get the message it does not have enough conversion data?

 

But the campaign has more than the required 15 conversions in 30 days?

 

 

any ideas?

Hi huggettm,

Every time I've tried CPA with my PLA campaigns, I get the same result as you. I don't know the reason why, but I never use it anymore in my PLA campaigns.

Sorry, I can't be of more help as to the cause behind it, but wanted to let you know you aren't alone!

Hi Hugget +Bethany,

 

CPA bidding for PLAs are only available for a select group of advertisers in the US as it is still in beta. This probably explains the errors that you are seeing. You should make sure you check our blog regularly as this is where we annouce when updates are available to everyone. 

 

Here is more information on CPA bidding. 

 

Hope that helps.

Thank you Shanea K, that is a big help!

Got to wonder why does it not tell you that in the Adwords Admin? rather than offer it as an option!

Even my adwords adviser (from google) told me it should work. Hardly fills you with confidence Smiley Sad

is it possible to set the campaign and pay a % of the sale rather than the PPC model.

we have tried everything and the new Google system is basically a disaster.

Hi

Adwords is a advertising platform, not a affiliate platform. Adwords don't
charge on conversion basis as of now
