Set an ad delivery method

You can help control how long your budget lasts by setting a standard or accelerated ad delivery method. Standard delivery is the default setting for all campaigns, and aims to evenly distribute your budget across the entire day. Accelerated delivery spends your budget more quickly, usually at the start of the day. 

If your campaign is limited by budget, your campaign could exhaust its average daily budget early in the day, which would cause your ads to stop showing. Because of this reason, accelerated delivery isn’t recommended for most advertisers. This article explains how to set ad delivery methods for your campaigns.
