Review of Corporate Entity

  • Entity validity:
    • Search for “Company name/Unified social credit code" at http://www.gsxt.gov.cn/index.html
    • Common reasons for rejection:
      • The entity is in an exceptional state and not eligible for opening an account.
      • Please update the business license according to http://www.gsxt.gov.cn/index.html and update the account opening information.
  • Entity information accuracy:
    • The company name/unified social credit code (caption)/registered address shall be consistent with those on the business license and in simplified Chinese.
    • Common reasons for rejection:
      • Verify entity name
      • Keep the account opening information consistent with that on the business license
      • Keep the registered address consistent with that on the business license and in simplified Chinese
      • Keep the official company name consistent with that on the business license
      • Keep the unified social credit code consistent with that on the business license
      • Number of accounts opened by one entity:
        • One entity can open a maximum of five to seven Facebook e-commerce advertising accounts (The number of accounts remaining isn’t available for query. If the reason for rejection is no account remaining, then the account quota has been used up).
        • If an entity is used for opening the first account for a domain name, it should be used for opening subsequent accounts for that domain name; otherwise, the application will be rejected.



Review of Store Website

  • Website validity:
    • Common reasons for rejection:
      • Verify the validity of product links
      • Verify the security status of the website, “https” is required in domain names (Make sure websites for all categories are secure)
  • Website integrity:
    • Common reasons for rejection:
      • Information on the complementary website appears to be incomplete. Essential details such as About Us, Contact Us, Shipping Policy, and Return Policy are absent.
      • Complementary website information appears inconsistent with that used for account opening. Elements such as About Us, Contact Us, Shipping Policy, Return Policy, Privacy Policy, and Terms of Service are not aligned.
      • Enhance the website construction: Ensure that jump links correspond accurately with the promoted website. Avoid situations where clicking on a link intended for website A directs users to a different website or a non-matching domain. 
      • Complementary website information: Add more products to ensure there are enough to populate at least two or three pages. Complete the categories by adding missing products, including images, and removing countdowns if they are not relevant. Ensure all categories have sufficient content and no missing information. Verify that all buttons lead to the correct destinations and include relevant content. Establish a clear relationship between any overseas address displayed on the website and the advertiser.
      • Complement website information: The domain name of the website after clicking isn’t the website to be promoted (Such a situation should be avoided as it may fail advertisement placement).

      • No specific person / ID to attract users to download, which may result in uncertainties.
