You can pause your campaigns, ad groups or ads at any time in Ads Manager to stop accruing costs.

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

If you want to make edits to an existing ad, read our article Edit ads.

Pause a campaign, ad group or ad
  • Log in to your Pinterest business account
  • Click the hamburger icon at the top-left of the page
  • Under Ads, click Reporting
  • Click into the campaign, ad group or ad you want to edit
  • Toggle the Off/On switch to Off
  • What happens after you pause an ad

    Once you pause a campaign, ad group or ad, it will stop appearing on Pinterest within a short period of time. This means that you may still accumulate a very small amount of additional spend if people who previously saw your ad complete a billable action (impressions, clicks and video views). This is expected and could take up to 48 hours for all billable actions to stop.
