Step 3. Name your new banner ad and set "Your Store" as the Client.

 

Banner Name: Banners are often set to sort alphabetically, so if you add a numeric prefix to your banner names (eg: "01 Holiday Toy Collection"), you can easily control their display order within the category.

Client Name: Unless you're selling banner space, select "Your Store"

Step 4. Choose the category

 

Pick the category that matches your artwork. 180 pixels for a banner image that goes in the right or left column, and wide ones for the header position you may have, or to go at the bottom of a page.
