Amazon Marketing Stream Explained

Amazon Marketing Stream (AMS) or Hourly Metrics provides hourly* performance data by keyword, including details such as targeting performance by placement and budget consumption. This data can help you optimize your campaigns more effectively and respond quickly to any performance changes. Use AMS to:

  • See traffic and conversion data summarized hourly with more dimensions available in a single dataset.

  • Get notified about budget consumptions, such as when campaigns are running out of budget.

*Please note that updates are made once per day at 10:30 AM PST for Analytic users.

Marketplace Availability: AMS data is available for all the marketplaces. The data would be in the same local time zone as the account.

Getting Started with Amazon Marketing Stream

AMS is free of cost and currently available only on a request basis.

To get it enabled for your account, drop us a message via mail or chat. It takes around 24 hours for data to populate. There won't be any historical data; you'll start receiving data once the AMS is enabled.

Once enabled, you will find the data under Hourly Metrics dashboard in the left Navigation menu.

Here's what you'll find in the new AMS dashboard:

  • Traffic and conversion data are summarized hourly.

  • Performance Metrics will show Conversion Rate, Conversion, Clicks, Impressions, Spend, and Average CPC data.

  • Option to analyze the hourly data by SP and SD campaign type, SB coming soon.

  • Data is available for Today, Yesterday, the Last 7, 14, 30 and 60 days and special events like Prime Days and Black Fridays.

  • Data displayed is based on the 14-day attribution window; other attribution windows, such as 1-day, 7-day, and 30-day are available through Intentwise Analytics Cloud.

  • Total conversion is displayed, but Same Sku Conversion is available through Intentwise Analytics Cloud.

Budget Consumption

Budget usage data helps you understand how fast your campaigns are spending daily budgets and can give you the information needed to make quick budget decisions.

Here's what you'll find in the new Budget Consumption dashboard:

  • List of campaigns that today have already spent 80% or more of their daily budget as default.

  • List of campaigns that ran out of budget yesterday.

  • Option to filter the campaigns for their percentage of the used budget.

Budget data is updated in near real time, specifically for every 5% change increment. This will allow you to monitor out of budget campaigns and to increase budget as necessary for tentpole events such as Prime Day, Black Friday/ Cyber Monday, etc.
