What are Sponsored Products?
Sponsored Products are cost-per-click (CPC) ads that promote individual product listings on Amazon. In just a few minutes, you can create a campaign, even if you’ve never advertised before.
Create with ease
Sponsored Products generates ads from your product listings and offers automatic targeting so you can start advertising with no experience necessary.
Control your costs
Sponsored ads are cost-per-click (CPC), so you only pay when customers click your ads. Choose how much to bid per click and set your own budget.
Track your success
Use sales and performance metrics to measure the direct impact of your ads on your business.

Sponsored Products are available for professional sellers, vendors, book vendors, Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) authors and agencies. Products must be in one or more eligible categories and be eligible for the Featured Offer in order to advertise.
Your ads may be displayed at the top of, alongside, or within shopping results and on product pages, on desktop and mobile. Ads are shown to shoppers based on relevant keywords or products.
With CPC ads such as Sponsored Products, you bid the maximum amount that you’re willing to pay when a shopper clicks on an ad for your product. The more competitive your bid, the more likely your ad is to be displayed when it matches a customer’s shopping query.
At this time, adult products, used products, refurbished products and products in closed categories are not eligible for advertising. For a full list of permitted and prohibited categories review the creative acceptance policies for Sponsored Brands and Sponsored Products.
The Featured Offer is the offer displayed on a product detail page with an Add to Basket button. A key feature of the Amazon website is that multiple sellers can offer the same product, so you may be one of many sellers who are considered for the Featured Offer placement. Amazon uses performance-based criteria to determine your Featured Offer eligibility and placement status.
We provide a range of tools and reports to help you optimise campaign performance and measure success. Once you have launched your campaign, you can generate reports that provide insight on sales and performance of advertised products or targets, how different ad placements are performing and more. Use these advertising analytics to identify successful tactics for your business and to help optimise your campaigns.
