AdCenter desktop won't let me upload a bunch of bid changes because it says the "Bid amounts are less than floor price." Fine, if AdCenter doesn't want my money, don't show the ads. However, because AdCenter Desktop categorizes this as an error I don't get my bid changes, and the bids on the server are at too high a level. This is not acceptable.
I tried to pause all of the keywords that are below some floor price (which isn't very transparent), but the pause won't sych either because of the supposed error of being below floor price.
We did find an issue that if you only change bid then it doesn't validate again and clear the error. Sorry for the inconvenience, we'll fix that in the next release.
For now as workaround you can clear the error by changing another field (e.g. add a character and remove it again). Another option is to select all of those keywords and do find/replace where both text boxes are the same.
The issue really isn't with adCenter Desktop. The adCenter platform will never deliver keywords below the minimum bid ($0.05 in US). These keywords will be filtered out and never enter the keyword auction.
All adCenter entry points (adCenter Desktop, the APIs, and the Web UI) reject keywords with less than the minimum bid to let customers know up front that these keywords will never deliver.
If you intention is the upload the keywords now and set their bids later you can set the bids to $0.05 in bulk and pause then all in bulk and then they will upload.
I am talking about bids above $0.05 but below the "floor price"
What is the currency of the account? If it's India Rupee then the minimum bid is 0.50 and you would see these errors.
If that's not the case and it's a different currency than please contact me directly with the account id so I can debug since you should not see these errors except for that currency.
I don't know. I don't really pay attention to all of the reported "errors" in AdCenter Desktop. That would be a full time job.
What is your account's currency?
USD (United States Dollars)
Minimum bid for USD currency is 0.05 for CPC and 0.10 for CPM so you should not see any errors as shown above if that's the account currency.
EDIT: I received account id. I'll take a look and get back to you.
I have exact same problem too. Even I adjusted the bid to the first page bid, the error sign does not go away.
Does the error not go away after you entered a new bid? Or do you get the error on the keyword after sync?
