How to set up & optimize Facebook Collaborative Ads with Shopee / Lazada?

Facebook Collaborative Ads (CPAS) enable brands to drive traffic and track sales performance on e-commerce platforms.

Facebook Collaborative Ads, also known as CPAS, enables brands to collaborate with e-commerce platforms like Shopee, Lazada, etc. to drive traffic and sales via Facebook Ads.

Through this partnership, e-commerce platforms will be able to share the catalog data from the brand's store to the brand's Facebook Business Manager.

With the catalog setup, brands can advertise on Facebook using collaborative ads, drive traffic to the brand's product page on the e-commerce platform (e.g. Shopee), and track orders, conversions.

Without the CPAS partnership, brands are unable to insert pixels into the e-commerce platforms hence online sales performance can't be tracked.

 Here are the benefits of CPAS:

  • Conversion Tracking: Conversions can be tracked via pixels shared by the platform.
  • Dynamic Ads: Products can be personalized and featured dynamically to users.
  • Land at Product Page in App: Able to direct users to the product page in-app with deep-link.
  • Optimization for Conversion: Ads can be optimized using lower-funnel conversion data.
  • Audience Re-targeting: Able to re-target specific audiences who have interacted before.

In a nutshell, online sales campaigns can be improved via shared audience data and conversion tracking. For example, Shopee provides CPAS audience sharing like below to facilitate precise targeting.

Obviously, Shopee and Lazada are the leading e-commerce platforms in this part of the world. Read on to find out how to get on board and set up the CPAS. 

Before you start, the brand (or the appointed agency) needs to first apply to Shopee or Lazada and get enrolled. There is a minimum ad spend commitment required, investment subject to respective platforms.

How to get on board to run CPAS with Shopee / Lazada?


Step 1: Share ad account access with Shopee / Lazada

You need to have the Facebook Business Manager and set up an ad account dedicated to CPAS ads. Assign partner* to share the ad account access with Shopee / Lazada.

Step 2: Accept the catalog shared by Shopee / Lazada

Your Business Manager admin will receive a notification once the catalog is shared with your brand. Accept it and assign catalog permissions to your team members.

Step 3: Grant ad account access to users

After accepting the catalog, you will be prompted to create a new ad account. Skip that and use the existing ad account you have created earlier, then grant account access to your team members.

Step 4: Share Facebook page access with Shopee / Lazada

By default, the ad will be shown under Shopee / Lazada FB page. Assign partner* to share your brand FB page access with Shopee / Lazada so that the ads will be originated from your brand page instead.

* You need to get the partner ID from either Shopee or Lazada.

How to create CPAS ads with Shopee / Lazada?

Step 1: Create your product sets

The purpose here is to create product sets for you to run ads later. Select the catalog shared with you, and create product sets by criteria. You can filter and select by individual product, brand, or category.

Note: Facebook recommends setting at least 50 SKUs in your product sets so that your dynamic ads can be optimized with more data.

Step 2: Create your campaign

Depending on whether you intend to drive sales from new or past customers, you can set either "Catalog Sales" or "Conversion" as your campaign objective.

As illustrated below, "Catalog Sales" is for dynamic ads with Carousel or Collection ad format, while you can set website URL or app deep-link for the "Conversion" campaign.
