Before you begin

Before you can get started in Ads Manager, you’ll need a Facebook business Page. There’s no need to create an Ads Manager account because it’s created automatically when you set up your Page.If you don’t already have a business Page, you can create one now.
We’ll provide direct links to guide you through the following steps, but you can always access your Ads Manager from your Facebook Page. Many of the options below can be accessed through the Settings button in the top right corner.Select the play button to the right to see how to access Ads Manager from your Page.
 

Confirm your ad account information

To access your ad account information, you can follow the path to the Settings menu in the animation above, or you can view your ad account settings now.We’ll explore other options in the Ads Manager interface later. For now, let’s confirm your ad account information.
 
When you first navigate to your Ads Manager settings, you’ll be presented with the ad account setup.We automatically assign you a random account ID number, and set your currency and time zone based on where you’re located.You may want to change these settings in the future.

In Settings, enter your business information and advertising purpose. These questions are for legal reasons, as there may be restrictions on certain types of advertising in your region.When done entering your information, select Save Changes.
