Integrating ClickFlare with Microsoft Bing enables ClickFlare to periodically ask for campaign cost information and update it automatically, making tracking and optimization even easier.

In this article, we'll go over the step-by-step process of setting up the API Cost Integration with Microsoft Bing.

What you'll need for the integration:

  • An active Microsoft Bing Ads Account
  • An active ClickFlare Account

Begin the process by:

  1. Entering the Settings Menu (gear icon in the upper right corner) inside ClickFlare.
  2. Go to the Integrations tab.
  3. In the Cost Tracking Integrations section, click on Add Integration.

  4. Choose Microsoft Bing icon card.

  5. Select a workspace first, and then give your integration a name and finally pick the Microsoft Bing Account you want to connect to and the Integration Timezone.

    Note: The timezone should match the one in your Microsoft Bing account. If you already have A Microsoft Bing account connected to ClickFlare, you should be able to see it under "Use an existing account" (image below).

    If not, then click on the "Sign in with Bing Ads" button.

    You’ll be redirected to the Microsoft accounts page. Enter the email address and password of the Microsoft account you would like to cost integrate.

    You’ll be asked to give access to ClickFlare to your Account. Click on Accept.

    After being redirected to ClickFlare, choose your newly connected account.

  6. After clicking Next, you'll see all your ad accounts. Choose the ones from which you want costs to be pulled, then click Save.

    Note: You only need to create one integration per Business Account. In one integration, you can select multiple ad accounts. ClickFlare will then automatically know to which campaigns to associate costs to.
  7. Optional Step - Specify the traffic source configurations you want to assign this cost integration to.

    If in this step you do not set which traffic source configurations will use this cost integration, you can alternatively set the cost integration on the traffic source configuration settings.

    Important note: Make sure that the traffic source configurations you select in this step belongs to the traffic source you created the integration for. Once done, click on Save.
  8. Lastly, go to the traffic source configuration settings and add the previously created cost integration under the cost integration settings.

    Important Note: When adding a Traffic Source, remember to select the new integration you just added. Failing to do so, will result in costs not being pulled.

Congratulations, you’ve just finalized the cost integration of Microsoft Bing Ads in ClickFlare. From now on you’ll be able to see the cost of your campaigns directly from ClickFlare.
