Use Google Ads remarketing lists in Search Ads 360

Configure Google Ads campaigns or ad groups to display ads only to remarketing list members

Create members-only remarketing targets

Initially, the only difference between the ads displayed to remarketing list members and everyone else  may be the bids. That is, by default, campaigns and ad groups with remarketing lists applied display the same ads for everyone, but the bids may be higher or lower to target the members of a remarketing list. 

To display ads only to members of a Google Ads remarketing list (this is also called targeting a remarketing list), you can change the default Remarketing setting for the campaign or ad group. 

If you have more than one remarketing list, each can be applied to the same level within a campaign, allowing you to bid differently to target each list. That is, you can apply multiple remarketing lists to a campaign, or you can apply multiple remarketing lists to ad groups, but you can't apply remarketing lists to a campaign and to the campaign's ad groups.

Where did you create the remarketing list?

If the remarketing list was created in Google Ads, sync the engine changes in Search Ads 360 or schedule engine changes to sync to display the Google Ads remarketing lists in Search Ads 360.

If you created the remarketing list in Search Ads 360, sync isn't required. The list is trafficked to Google Ads.
