* For lead times not specified, please call an Account Executive for further details and planning.

** Total lead time = Total lead time = # of business days from receipt of approved customer assets, until campaign is set live/ready to launch. This lead time assumes a maximum of 1 revision and up to 1 day for advertiser review and feedback on initial mocks and up to 1 day for advertiser review and feedback on revisions.

NOTE: *Additional time may be required for campaigns with multiple revisions, creatives, ad versions, or platform types. Published times subject to change during peak times

If advertising content is late or does not comply with Amazon’s advertising policies, Amazon may extend the campaign by the number of days the advertising content was late, and/or revise the flight dates pending placement and available inventory. If Amazon has not received creative assets that meet Amazon’s advertising policies within 3 days of campaign launch, Amazon may release inventory for all affected placements.

*** If an audio ad mentions Alexa in the creative, 3 extra days should be added to its SLA.

**** For 3rd party (advertiser and/or agency) provided creatives, the total lead time is two business days from receipt of approved 3rd party tags.

***** Additional time may be required for creatives with any revision requests.

8 Day Creative Delivery Workflow and Requirements

For 8 day lead times, Amazon requires:

  • Complete and accurate assets for all ad types, including copy
  • Clear creative direction
  • 24 hours turn-around time for feedback and creative approvals
  • Maximum of two creative iterations - one round of review, with version two ready for approval
  • Maximum of two creative designs

Ad Launch Time

  • Amazon.com and Mobile: Ad starts no earlier than midnight (12AM), Eastern Standard Time. Specific times can be discussed.
  • Kindle: Ad starts at midnight (12AM), Pacific Standard Time. Specific times cannot be accommodated.

Required Assets for Amazon Creative Services

  • Pre-existing ad units for reference, layered PSD files, logos, backgrounds, key art, fonts, advertising copy and brand guidelines
  • For IAB static ad creation, approved pre-existing ad reference units are required.

Some platforms have more specific requirements. Assets must be reviewed and approved prior to ad design and production getting underway. Schedules will be adapted for unique client circumstances such as legal approvals or multiple rounds of revisions. Please discuss specifics with your Amazon Ads contact.
