Who can use Amazon DSP

Amazon DSP is available to both advertisers who sell products on Amazon and those who do not.

Self-service and managed-service options are available. Self-service customers are in full control of their campaigns. 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 35,000 (minimum may vary per country). Contact an Amazon Advertising account executive for more information.

How advertisers can use Amazon DSP

Amazon DSP is best suited to advertisers who want to programmatically buy display, video and audio ads at scale.

You can use Amazon DSP to support a wide variety of advertising goals. For example, for audiences that have already visited your product page, you can remarket to them on Amazon, where they are likely to be in the mindset to purchase. Or, if your goal is to drive brand awareness and expand your audience, then you could reach new customers offsite with a video that introduces your brand
and top products.
