How to Use Enhanced Bid Price to Maximise Your Sales

Increase your sales from manual keywords effortlessly using Enhanced Bid Price


Why should I use Enhanced Bid Price? 

It can be time-consuming to manually adjust the bid prices of each individual keyword for your Product Search Ads, or you may feel like you don't have enough data to know what is the "best" bid price.


Enhanced Bid Price helps make your life easier by automatically optimizing the bid prices of your manually selected keywords to generate more sales conversions, without significantly increasing your ads expense.  


How does Enhanced Bid Price work? 

Enhanced Bid Price uses an algorithm to predict whether each ad click is likely to lead to a sales conversion or not based on a variety of factors, such as historical data related to your advertised product, your shop and shopping behavior of each shopper's buying behavior. It then automatically adjusts the bid prices of your manually selected keywords to increase your sales.


When ad clicks are more likely to generate sales, Enhanced Bid Price will increase bid prices by up to 50%. When ad clicks are less likely to generate sales, Enhanced Bid Price will decrease bid prices by up to 50%. 

  1. For example, if your bid price is Php 0.30, our system will automatically increase your bid to no more than Php 0.45 when ad clicks are more likely to generate sales
  2. Our system will also automatically decrease your bid to no lower than Php 0.15 when ad clicks are less likely to generate sales


How would Enhanced Bid Price impact my ads performance?

Enhanced Bid Price will help to increase sales from your Product Search Ads with manually selected keywords, without significantly increasing your ads spend. In other words, your ads' Return on Investment (ROI) will improve over time.

Why am I not able to see how Shopee is optimizing my bid prices?

An algorithm updates your bid prices every few minutes throughout the day, which makes it impractical to dynamically update the bid prices in real time.


Rest assured that our system will adjust your bid price upwards or downwards by up to only 50%. 


Can I control this feature from the Shopee app?

No, you will only be able to use this feature by accessing Shopee Ads through the Seller Centre website.
