↑ Back to topAdvanced options are available if needed. Some examples where this could be useful are if you need to change which store or website is linked to your Google Ads Account. There are 3 settings under Advanced Options, and they should not be modified unless instructed to do so:
Account ID: This ID is created when you make an account in our system. This is used in combination with the application token to connect your store to our system, allowing us to sync your store with your campaign, track sales from your ads, and much more.
Application Token: This is a unique token generated to connect your account and store to our system. It is used in a similar manner as the account ID and also serves as an extra layer of security for your account.
Google Verification Token: This token is used to help verify your website for Google. The token is installed as an HTML meta tag on your website, and let’s Google know that you are an authorized owner of your website’s URL.
