You may find yourself needing to set up a new Facebook ads account in order to redeem and use the ad credits you have receive.
To get started log into Facebook and navigate to the ads account section. To do so click on the little arrow at the top of your screen and find Manage Ads towards the bottom of this menu.
If you don’t see Manage Ads click on Create ads.
On the next screen you may find something that looks like this prompting you to create your first ad. You do not need to create an ad at this point.
Find the button in the bottom left of your screen that says Close Without Saving.
You should then see a screen like this:
Your Facebook ad account requires a few pieces of information in order to be considered active. (You must have an active account in order to spend your ad credits.)
To access this form click on Account Settings at the top of this screen:
This will bring up the following page:
Fill in the information asked for. Do note you can name your ad account at the top of the page. This helps you keep track of your different accounts and helps you differentiate between your organization’s ad account and your personal one.
Further down the page you’ll find the option to add folks to this account. In terms of ad credits this allows them to see the ads you’re running and allows them to also access and help manage your credits.
There are five levels of permissions you may grant someone. These permissions will determine what teammates can and cannot do from within your ad account. Here you will find the full list of permissions so you can choose the right one: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/155909647811305
Once finished you’ll hop into your Billing section.
This is where you will enter your ad credit coupon code to redeem your credits.
First though, you’ll need to fill in a primary payment method. Facebook requires you have a credit card, debit card or PayPal account on file with them in order to apply and redeem your credits.
To do this click on the green Add Payment Method button.
Once this is filled in you’re done! Your new Facebook ads account is now active and ready to use.
You’ll now want to grab your coupon code and drop it into your account:
