Error message when creating Dynamic Ad

I have successfully associated my Adwords and Merchant account - bearing in mind my merchant account only offered me USA instead of South Africa. When I click on the Dynamic Ad and select the campaign I get the following error

 

 

This campaign is missing merchant center id. Please click on the settings tab and associate your merchant center id.

In AdWords, select your campaign and click on the "Settings" tab. If you don't see a "Dynamic remarketing" section right after the "General" section, you might have to re-create a campaign:

 

if  you chose "Display Network only" and then "Remarketing" as the type of campaign, AdWords will detect that you have a Google Merchant Center account linked to your AdWords account and will automatically suggest to enable dynamic remarketing.

 

See the screenshot:

I tried it the other way around by creating the campaign in Adwords. When I get to the section to choose domain I keep getting error "Invalid domain name."

Where exactly do you get "invalid domain name"? In AdWords or Merchant Center? Can you post a screenshot?

I don't think there's a section in AdWords to choose a domain so I'm guessing you're talking about domain name verification in Google Merchant Center. Is that right?

Its in Adwords. I have posted a screenshot. The steps to create this error are CAMPAIGN>SEARCH NETWORK ONLY>DYNAMIC SEARCH ADS - I fill in budget etc then hit SAVE. If I create the Campaign as a STANDARD campaing then I am able to specify an AD GROUP within that CAMPAIGN as a DYNAMIC AD. It is a work around for now.

Dynamic Search Ads and Dynamic Remarketing (display) ads are completely different

Are you trying to create dynamic search ads or dynamic remarketing (display) ads?

Hi,

 

I'm having a similar issue when trying to create dynamic search ads.

You can take a look at the screenshot invalid domain name error

(sorry I didn't know how to place the screenshot directly in the message, I'm new to posting here)
