With Knorex XPO, you can easily launch Facebook campaigns within a few minutes. To do this, you need a valid Facebook ad account and link it to your XPO Advertiser account.

1. Give access to Business Manager

To get started, you will need to grant XPO admin access to your Business Manager (BM). This is done to configure your BM account on XPO to allow you to fully utilize XPO features like creation of ad accounts, page management, syncing campaigns and audiences.

Steps on how to give your BM access to Knorex

  1. From your Business Manager Account, go to Business Settings

WHY IS THE FEATURE +FACEBOOK ACCOUNT BENEFICIAL?  

Previously, you were required to create a new ad account on your BM and then invite/ provide access to Knorex team to the ad account. You were then required to go to XPO to link the new ad account to XPO platform or ask XPO Support to link them.

  • Now all you need is to create the Facebook ad account on XPO and the previous steps (creation of ad account on Facebook and linking) are not required
  • You are not required to give Knorex access to every newly created Facebook ad account. This gives you independence on XPO with a one time admin access for all accounts
  • We estimate saving around 24 hours to configure a Facebook ad account that included manual steps/email communication, which is now redundant.

NOTE  

You should start a campaign on your newly created ad account within 30 days, or else Facebook will disable your new ad account if there is no active campaign running.

2b. How to link if you have an EXISTING ad account?

  • Ensure that you have completed Step 1 of granting the necessary access.

Under the partner dashboard, click Utility > Manage Facebook.

3. Identify your Facebook account name. To link this to your existing advertiser accounts, click on the Allocate Account

4. Allocate the different accounts as necessary, under the XPO Account drop-down box.

  • FB Account is your Business Manager (BM) account details
  • "Allocated XPO Accounts" refers to all the Facebook ad accounts you have given access to XPO to run campaigns
  • XPO Account is the partner level account(s) which has access to this BM
  • XPO Advertiser is who XPO needs to run the campaigns for

Click on Save to confirm changes.

TIP

To verify that you have successfully linked the two accounts (for both 2a and 2b), click on create a campaign in XPO. The newly linked Facebook ad account name will appear under the Facebook ad account section.

3a. Set up a NEW Facebook Campaign

You can create Facebook Campaigns through Media Broker under the Campaign tab.

The steps to create a Facebook Campaign is the same as explained in our Campaign Setup article. Select the respective Facebook Account when filling in the campaign info:

  • The Allocated Campaigns will now be shown on your Campaign Dashboard.

4. Invoicing Based On Different Situations

  • For existing ad accounts, after you sync these accounts into XPO, Knorex will invoice only the platform fees based on the signed MSA (Agreement)

  • For new ad accounts created on your Facebook Business Manager, payment details are already fed into your account. Once you sync these accounts into XPO, Knorex will invoice only the platform fees based on the signed MSA

  • For new ad accounts created on XPO:

    a. If you choose to configure your own payment details (credit card details or credit line) in your Facebook account, Knorex will invoice you only the platform fees based on the signed MSA

    b. If you choose to allow Knorex to handle all payments related to the newly created account, we will invoice you both total media spend on Facebook and platform fees as per MSA
