Hi. I'm using conversion optimizer on my campaigns and want to change the CPA amounts that I originally set. However, when I go into Campaign Settings > Bidding and budget it doesn't give me an option to change the CPA value.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks in advance!

You should be able to change the CPA at the ad group level.

Thanks, netmeg.
Someone else suggested that I just switch to another bid method then back to conversion optmizer CPA with my new bid which worked. I guess it is just a quirk of adwords.

Have a good weekend.

Hi Jimmy, that was me over on the AdWords forum :) Glad it worked.

I have absolutely NO idea why this happens. It must be an oversight. But, considering how advanced conversion optimizer has gotten over the past year, I think a little more time could be spent on pushing it.
