Add a Facebook Ads profile
This profile enables comments from your Facebook ads to come through to your Priority Inbox so that you can reply to them from the Sendible. Currently, posting ads directly to Facebook isn't supported, however, you can use Dark Posts if you'd like to add posts to your Facebook Ads Manager to publish as ads. Please see this page for more information on posting Dark Posts.
- First, go to the Profiles option and select Add profiles.
- Find the Facebook Ads profile and click on the Add button. A pop-up window will appear.
- The following pop-up is displayed, select the Setup button opposite where the Facebook Ads option is listed.
The first section of this page covers adding Facebook Ads where you have not added Facebook Ads to Sendible previously. If you have added Facebook Ads to Sendible previously, go straight to the Adding Facebook Ads profile after the first time section.

Important: We recommend always selecting all pages when prompted by Facebook. You will still be able to select which Facebook Page you’re setting up a Profile for when directed back to Sendible (see point 13.). If you unselect Facebook Pages in this screen that were added to Sendible previously, this will remove our access and those Facebook Pages will then need to be reconnected.
- Once all Facebook pages are selected, click the Next button.
- The next screen that you see will have the following header "What is Sendible allowed to do?". Please make sure all of these permissions are set to “Yes”. We only request the permissions needed to support the Profiles we’re providing to you. If any of these permissions are set to “No”, reconnection will not be successful and you will be prompted to reconnect again with all permissions selected. Once all of the permissions are set to “Yes”, please click on Done.
