Manage your spend

You can manage your spend by viewing your monthly spend, setting spend limits, setting end dates for your ads, and stopping your ads.

View monthly spend

You can find your overall spend for the month in the “Overview” section of Ads Manager. The column on the far right of the page will show you your overall spend for the last 30 days.

Screen capture of Ads Manager Overview

To view your monthly spend:

  1. From Pinterest, click Ads next to the search bar
  2. Select Overview for your overall monthly spend
  3. Scroll down to see your spend for each campaign objective
  4. Click View all next to a campaign objective to see a detailed breakdown of spend by campaign, ad group, or Promoted Pin

Stop ads

Pause your campaigns, ad groups, or Promoted Pins at any time in Ads Manager to stop accruing costs. Learn how to stop your ads.

If you’re running a campaign with multiple ad groups, pausing one of those ad groups will stop running all the Promoted Pins within that ad group, but will not impact the other ad groups in that campaign.  If you stop running a campaign, you will pause all the ad groups within it.

Set daily or lifetime spend limits

Set daily or lifetime spend limits at the campaign level to guard against overspending.

  1. From Pinterest, click Ads next to the search bar
  2. From the menu, choose the campaign type to edit
  3. Find the campaign you want to edit and scroll all the way to the right in the campaign line
  4. Hover over the spend limit you want to change and click  
  5. Enter your new spend limit and click Save
