Microsoft Advertising provides multiple ad types. This article describes product ads.

Products ads include custom images from your own product catalogs (created in the Microsoft Merchant Center), plus pricing and seller details. A title to the product ads block is also included, helping to bring attention to your products.

Product ads use your specific product information to determine who sees your ads. If someone's search query is relevant to your products, your product ad can show up on the search results.
