The managed-service option is designed for companies that want access to Amazon DSP inventory, with consultative service, or for those with limited programmatic advertising experience. The managed-service option typically requires a minimum spend of USD $50,000 (minimum may vary per country). Contact an Amazon Ads account executive for more information.

Do I need to create my own ads?
You have the flexibility to use your own custom ads or use our exclusive Amazon creative options, such as e-commerce creative templates or our video creative builder.
E-commerce creatives can include an image you provide or a product image found on your product detail page. Various elements are automatically generated to drive the best performance for your e-commerce creative and the end customer.
Our video creative builder allows you to create an engaging video free of cost by selecting one of the existing templates and using product images found on your product detail page.
How do I measure the performance of my campaigns?
Campaign reporting includes industry-standard metrics and Amazon-proprietary metrics such as detail page view rate (DPVR), add to list (ATL) counts and new-to-brand (NTB) metrics, along with reach, frequency and viewability statistics. Eligible advertisers can also employ third-party measurement solutions, such as brand lift study and offline sales lift. In addition, you can conduct custom analytics across your Amazon DSP campaigns using event-level datasets in Amazon Marketing Cloud.
What is the difference between Amazon DSP and Sponsored Display?
Sponsored Display is a self-service display advertising product, and Amazon DSP is a solution that allows you to programmatically purchase ads that include, but are not limited to, display ads.
