Amazon introduced Multi-Ad group Sponsored Brand campaigns, referred to as SBV4, in October 2022. At that time and up until today, Perpetua did not support launching SBV4 Goals; instead, you could only launch goals aligned with SBV3, known as Single-Ad Group Campaigns (User could still take over existing Amazon SBV4 Campaigns to Perpetua).

With Amazon phasing out SBV3 campaigns and requiring a transition to SBV4, Perpetua is now facilitating the launch of SBV4 goals. Nonetheless, a question emerges: What will occur with my SBV3 Goals in Perpetua?

What Stays the Same

Continue to operate as usual.

Existing Targets and Negative Matches

Preserved during the transition to v4 goals.

Goal Names, Budget, and ACoS

What Changes



Targeting Type Label

The "Targeting Type" label (e.g., "C", "CA", "U") next to goal names will no longer be visible when v3 goals transition to v4 goals.

Both tabs will remain present, showing a single ad and ad group.
