CTA's and Infocards on YouTube videos

I've been trying to add CTA's and Infocards to some of our clients videos, but without success. I'm trying to figure out where the CTA section has gone to, and why our external links aren't approved by YouTube.

For example, I tried to add a CTA and an Infocard to this video:

The link I was trying to direct our viewers to is:

It's a landing page promoting a new discount coupon for a client's product.

I will appreciate your help,

Hi there;
I assume you are referring to Call to Action Overlay.
Remember that your YouTube and AdWords accounts must be linked.

Side notes:

  • The CTA is subject to a review for Policy compliance;
  • I was not able to stop the video on your landing page - which is a violation of the "editorial and professional  requirements" section of the Policy ("Promotions or content that are unnecessarily difficult or frustrating to navigate")

Thank you Moshe!

Is it the same with infocards? YouTube does not allow me to connect my videos with external links since they are not connected with the YouTube account.

Regarding your side note about the landing page - you should be able to stop the video. I just checked and it's working.
