Creating your PGN: Sponsored Brands Video ads

You can now upload video ads for Sponsored Brand on ZonTools.

With ver2.0, you can directly upload Sponsored Brands videos from inside ZonTools. Your video ads are uploaded to Amazon through ZonTools by creating a PGN and then adding the video ad.

  • After a video ad is uploaded in ZonTools, Amazon has a 72-hour window to approve your video and ensure its requirements are met. During this first 72 hours, your video ad will have a Pending Review status on ZonTools.
  • You can only add one video ad per product at a time.
  • Your video ads are keyword targeted, cost-per-click, and are linked to your Amazon product page.

Benefits of Sponsored Brands video ads
