    i'd also like to know a solution for this problem. Bing ads allows only INR as currency if the billing address is indian. It does not even let one use a loaded forex debit card.

    How do other indian affiliate marketers advertise on Bing Ads in USD ? #SOS!

    Try with INR bidding.

    there is no difference in bidding in USA and India just currency change as per country.

    You can target any Country in your campaign but yes if you are from India then you must use currency as INR or else you need Credit Card from USA and try with that may be it will work for you.

    Best Regards

      Thank you for your input Charles but trying CPA with INR bidding instead of USD when targeting US demographic would be a disaster given the daily, real time forex fluctuations and the impact it'll have on determining profitability at the campaigns/ad groups/ kw level.

      By the time someone gets a true picture on the CPC / EPC, it'll be incredibly tedious and hence the question.

    Never seen INR bidding when it comes Bing. Best bet would be initiate the chat through Bing support.

    i am indian and also run ads on bing many times. You do not need to change into USD just bid in INR and start ads in your targeted country.

    Well yeah as Pradeep said, just bid in INR and you won't have any problems targeting any country. But I'm guessing you know that already and want to switch to USD for convenience?

    It's been quite a while since I last used Bing and if I recall correctly I was able to switch to USD, but I don't remember how. You really should ask Bing Ads support this question - they are very responsive. Send an e-mail, they always responded my e-mails and even called me on their own to assist any time I had an issue.

      Talked to Bing Support "Before" posting the thread. Basically, they said, if your billing address is in India, only INR currency option for you.

      Of course i can bid in INR but that is extremely sub-optimal since the exchange rate is dynamic making it tough to get reliable handle on the EPC > CPC goal.

      I wish some Bing engineer sees this thread and takes action. If Google adwords doesn't have any problem with USD bidding for advertisers in India, Bing shouldn't either.
