Why was my Facebook Ad disapproved?

This article will explain the possible reasons as to why your Facebook ads were disapproved.

Facebook Ads Policies

Why did I receive an email that my ad was disapproved?

  • You may have received an email that stated your ad was disapproved by Facebook.

  • There are a few reasons why this may have happened. As a car dealership, there are three reasons:
    • Your advertisement does not meet Facebook's 20% Rule.
    • Your advertisement was not listed under the Special Ad Category due to the credit listing on your ad or on your website.
    • Your advertisement was a VIN specific ad, and if your page was taken down due to selling the vehicle, the ad would have been disapproved because the car is longer available. 
  • Facebook does not list the reason your advertisement did not get approved on the email, and will only list the reason when you log into Facebook Ads Manager. 
    • If you do receive an email about disapproval, these are the reasons why, and we will work towards fixing any issues the advertisements may have.
  • Facebook's Review Team for advertising can be inconsistent, but we will always make adjustments to ensure that your advertisement is posted as soon as possible.
