In this blog, however, we’re not going to talk about whether or not you should run a promotion on Instagram but rather how to delete one once it’s already on. The reasons for this can vary – you can either decide to adjust some details and edit the ad, or you may want to delete the promotion entirely. Here are our 6 simple steps on how to do it. 

How to delete an active promotion on Instagram

If you want to delete an Instagram ad completely, the best and quickest way to go about this is to directly do it on Instagram. 

The process is relatively simple:

  1. Go to the Promotions 
  2. Select Current
  3. Find the promotion you want to delete, and tap View Insights
  4. Scroll down until you see the Delete or Pause Button
  5. Tap Delete Promotion
  6. Press OK to confirm

Pro tip: If the Delete or Pause Button isn’t showing up, close Instagram, wait a few minutes, and then repeat the process until the button appears.

And that’s it. You’ve successfully deleted your promotion on Instagram. This means you will be charged for the duration of your promotion, not your entire planned budget. 

How to delete a promotion on Instagram that hasn’t been reviewed

If you’re having second thoughts about the promotion you filled out; you can delete it before the review.

Follow the same steps:

  1. Go to the Promotions 
  2. Select Current
  3. Find the promotion you want to delete, and tap View Insights
  4. Scroll down until you see the Delete or Pause Button
  5. Tap Delete Promotion
  6. Press OK to confirm

In this case, if the promotion hasn’t been reviewed, you shouldn’t be charged, as no budget has been spent. 

How to pause an active promotion on Instagram

If you want to pause a specific campaign or an ad for a certain period but plan on resuming after some time, here’s’ how to do it:

  1. Go to the Promotions 
  2. Select Current
  3. Find the promotion you want to delete, and tap View Insights
  4. Scroll down until you see the Delete and/or Pause Button
  5. Select Pause Promotion
  6. Press OK to confirm

You’ve paused your Instagram promotion. This way, you won’t be charged for the time it is paused, and your original post will be visible on your feed, even though the ad isn’t running.
