How to find your BING Ads account number

After you have clicked on tools, a drop down box will appear with multiple options to click on that will direct you to the correct page for the chosen option. You need to click on preferences which can be found under setup, this is the last column to the left.

From there, you will be directed to a page displaying your account settings and preferences. Once you are on the page, make sure you are in the account settings section on the right hand side of the page.


Once you have reached your account settings, you will notice there is an Account ID and an Account Number. In order to link your account successfully, you need the Account Number. You will know if it’s correct as it will start with a letter, normally B, F or X, but it could be another letter.
