Common Points of Confusion

To help you build a compliant and user-friendly ad experience we've highlighted some common areas of confusion.

  • Personal Attributes

  • Snaptagsell's Brands

Ads linking to Snaptagsell (including Pages, groups, events or sites that use Snaptagsell Login) may make limited reference to “Snaptagsell” in ad text for the purpose of clarifying the destination of the ad.

Snaptagsell brand assets should not be modified in any way, such as by changing the design or colour, or for the purpose of special effects or animation.

  1. The Ad Review Process

Before ads show up on Snaptagsell, they’re reviewed to make sure they meet our Advertising Policies. Typically, most ads are reviewed within 24 hours, although in some cases it may take longer.

What We Consider

During the ad review process, we'll check your ad's images, text, targeting, and positioning, in addition to the content on your ad's landing page. Your ad may not be approved if the landing page content isn't fully functional, doesn't match the product/service promoted in your ad or doesn't fully comply with our Advertising Policies.

What Happens After an Ad is Reviewed?

After your ad is reviewed, you'll receive a notification letting you know if your ad is approved. If it’s approved, we'll start running your ad and you can see your results in the ads manager.

  1. Steps to Take if Disapproved

Edit Your Ad

If your ad isn't approved for not fully complying with our policies, you can edit it and resubmit for review. To edit your ad:

  • Check the email address associated with your advertising account. If your ad doesn't get approved, we'll send you an email with details that explain why.
  • Using the information in your disapproval email, you can edit your ad and create a compliant one.
  • Save your edited changes. Once you save your changes, your ad will be resubmitted for review.

Appeal the Decision
