Scheduling a campaign launch is available for all sellers. This feature allows you to set a date and time (in EST) for your campaign to be launched in the future. If you have an upcoming event, you can sync your launch to the event day. Schedule your campaign launch along with your social posts to create a merch drop as a part of your promotional strategy.
