Amazon Bidding


Marin's automated bidding tool can be used to manage bids for your Amazon Advertising accounts within the MarinOne platform. 

In this article, we'll walk you through the basics of managing bids for your Amazon Advertising accounts in MarinOne. To learn more about other Amazon Advertising management functionality in MarinOne, check out our Amazon Advertising article. 

If you're new to Marin's automated bidding, you can learn more about Marin's automated bidding tool from our Bid Strategy article.

  • Manually targeted Sponsored Products
    • with keywords
    • as well as with product targets
  • Auto targeted Sponsored Products
    • with 4 pre-defined auto targets (close match, loose match, complements & substitutes)
  • Sponsored Brands
    • with keywords
    • as well as with product targets
  • Sponsored Brands Video
    • with keywords
    • as well as with product targets
  • Sponsored Display
    • with product targets

Important notes

  • If your Amazon keywords are assigned to automated Bid Strategies that are set to Traffic mode, we will push calculated search bids to Amazon once per day. 
  • We do not currently push manually-edited search bids to Amazon, only bids that have been calculated by Marin’s automated bidding. We plan to support manually-edited bids in a future iteration. 
  • Please note that your cost and conversion metrics when using Amazon Advertising may differ greatly from those of other publishers. Keep this in mind as you set your bidding goals and creating your Bid Strategies, as combining Amazon Advertising publisher accounts with other search publishers may cause performance changes.
  • Marin bidding's forecasting tools are currently supported.
