- As Amazon does not grant access to live performance data, the costs/revenues shown for the current day and the day before are not yet final and should not be included in performance analysis.
- Only keywords which have generated at least one click are included in our reporting. This leads to slight differences in impressions compared to Amazon, as campaigns and search terms without clicks are not included in our reporting.
The Campaign Insights report is divided into several sections:
The bottom section of the reporting has three views: Performance, Budget & Benchmarking. You can switch from one to another using the tabs below the report. By default, the Performance tab is active, and the Performance details are shown.
These sections will be explained in further detail below.

The conversions KPI counts the number of products that the shoppers bought during the 14 days after clicking your ad. Beware that this might not be the product you have actually advertised, but any other of your products in the same Amazon category.|

1.3 Development of KPIs
The KPIs are shown here in their development over time.
2.2 Budget Potential
The budget section allows an overview on the development of budgets and spending over time.
1. The table shows all budget periods within the time period which was selected in the filter area. Time elapsed (in %) and budget spent (in %) should ideally be on the same level.
2. Shows the planned budget and the actually spent budget for the selected budget period over time. The algorithm recalculates planned budgets continuously, taking actual spends into account. It also shows whether the budget can be spent given the current TACoS settings. It ranges from 0 to 1.
- If the budget factor is below 1, this means that more budget could be spent given the current TACoS settings.
- If the budget factor is 1, this means that it is not possible to spend more budget given the current TACoS settings.
3. The table shows the budget spent and the budget potential.
4. The diagram shows the total budget that was spent in blue. The dark blue is what was spent from the selected portfolio. The same applies to the orange one.
