  1. Show the account supplier after msft* adcenter along with the amount charged

    When I view my invoices on my card for a weekly statement period it just shows msft* adcenter and the amount however it doesn't show which account the charge is under. There needs to be a way to show the account that the charge is under so that we don't have to search each account for the amount to print the invoices. Google does this and it is a huge time saver, making accounting duties on our part much easier.

  3. e cigarette supplies

    Bing and Yahoo should allow advertising of electronic cigarette supplies. e liquid is not a tobacco product, it is a nicotine alternative and in the category of nicotine gum and patches. What is the deal! Electronic cigarettes and the liquid they use are more closely related to fog machines than tobacco cigarettes, should they ban those as well? Nicotine is found in many plants,tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, and even green peppers, should they ban those too! I not sure whose initial policy this derived from but they need to take another look and check the facts before making such rash decision…

  5. brand

    There seems to be a real problem with competing advertisers being able to bid on brand terms but also include that brand in their ad via keyword insertion. What you end up with is an ad title (or description) that has the brand term - but the ad is for an entirely separate (and competing) brand. You can have it removed via the Trademark form, but it's basically like playing whack-a-mole as they constantly reappear. There needs to be some sort of block that can be used in this case (in terms of the keyword insertion).

  6. Feature to swtich bidding option based on time of day

    I've set a specific budget per day and I have not accomplished to spend it all when set to "standard". It would be nice if it could be specified that after a particular time of the day the bidding should change to "accelerated".

    ie. If by 3pm the budget has not been spent, then switch to accelerated to ensure the budget is spent during business hours.

  9. Why I am not able to login into my account when I have made advance payment and my add is approved ?

    Why I am not able to login into my account when I have made advance payment and my add is approved ?

    Why don,t you have customer service email or form instead of having just the sales form ?

  10. Reports should include conversion data columns by default

    Conversion data columns should be added by default to all reports. Not sure who's looking at their performance without considering conversions.

  11. Own reference number for each account on Credit Card statement

    If you have, for example, 6 accounts in a postpay shell, which all get charged on the 11th, it would be easier and more comfortable, if each account get an own reference on CC statement, so I can see, for which account the charge was. Right now, it`s the same reference for each account and I have to compare it with Bing Ads Statements (Germany).

  12. Inform new acct holders that verification of their credit may be needed before they can access their acct.

    When I opened my acct I was unable to access my acct because of necessary verification of my credit card. When I called to find out the problem they told me research was necessary and it would take 3 to 5 business days before they could get back to me. I was extremely aggravated but finally got the issue resolved. It boiled down to as the acct name and credit card name did not match Bing needed to verify my account. If this is what I was told I wouldn't have been so upset. Be honest and tell your customers…

  13. Postpay with a percentage of the benefits generated by Bing Ads

    Don't pay with own funds but postpay with a percentage of the benefits generated by Bing Ads. Example: I earn 1000 euros with Bing Ads, I give 20% as a payment of my campaigns.

  15. When setting up first campaign, let customers know they can create more than one ad

    When customer create their first campaign, let them know they can create more than one ad. The initial form to create a campaign asks for one ad but does not say that you can create more. Including text that says something like “don’t worry, you can create more than one ad for this campaign. We just need one to get started” will really help. Google AdWords does this.

  16. Campaign budget management

    I recently had a campaign stop becuase it had gone over the monthly budget by $1.86. Why not have a margin of error, say 10%, that allows you to go over that monthly budget if necessary to keep the ad running. You could even have the option of making the monthly budget a hard (no overages) or soft limit. This would give the user the option to keep the campaign running.

  19. make it the same as adwords! how can you guys have got it so badly wrong. I cant even pause 1 keyword match type without it pausing others.

    Everything you try usually doesnt work. Odd given they have a perfect template in the form of adwords but couldnt even copy it properly???
    Personally i think shooting would be too good for the half wits responsible.
    I was told the match type issue fix will be rolled out to each account individually?? wtf are they for real?
    I tried it 5 years ago it sucked. I tried it this year - it still sucks - nice progress.

  20. Allow me to set a default time range for my home page reporting (currently set at 7 days).

    I rarely look at a 7 day time range when checking my metrics, but the home page always defaults to this (incidentally removing all my filters from the rest of the campaign reporting pages). I want to customize my home page to always show my preferred time range.
