    Hey,

    I've been trying for a while to get advertising for a mobile app and I can't for the life of me figure why I can't do so.
    This is the part I'm stuck in:

    [​IMG]

    (I removed the app from the textbox).

    I press continue and nothing happens. No message error, no nothing.

    Do you know what could be happening?

    Yes, in fact it gets automatically selected as it is the only app I have. It's strange that it won't do anything to continue.

    While I'm not from USA, I have US language configured on the account. And no, it's the first time I would be doing ads.

    have you setup your billing/paypal to use with fb ads? this might be 99% the problem!

    I didn't really did anything about that until now, I've just added the Paypal method of payment but still no luck I'm afraid :( (BTW it seems shady that they can charge "whatever they want" with my approval).

    By the way, this really got me pretty mad, I can't believe I can't even get an error message. I've tried with different browsers and computers (is there any sense to that?) but I still can't.

    You need to enter you iOS or Android app store link to promote it, or a facebook one if you have a fb app.

    I had already done that.

    Do you know what? Today I could create an ad! Yay!, right? After having connection problems during the creation of the ad, I finished it, and after "starting" the ad, my account got flagged for suspicious activity!

    Well, they can rot in hell.
