All the initial feed will be passed through an editorial review and this process is a time consumimg one. This could take around three to four weeks on an average basis. However, if you want to speed up the process, then you need to ensure that you have given up the accurate MPN/ UPC data. Once the campaign is cleared by the review board, you will be notified via an email. But you should notify the Bing ads, if you do not receive the confirmation mail after three weeks, that would mean that your campaign is faulty and you would need to rectify it immediately and re-submit it after rectifying it.
After receiving the approval, it would take about three days to launch the campaign and publish through Product ads, and then another in another 48 hours, the campaign would be published.
After the campaign is published succesfully, you should customise the Bing categories. Make sure that you verify the feed submissions and conduct additional verification. Obtain the performance feedback on the Clicks and Impressions of the campaign. In addition, it is important to view your items in the Bing Shopping Search Results. You can easily contact Bing Shopping if you face any kind of problem.
