“Google Ads announced a coming change to ad delivery options that will start September 17. The accelerated delivery option will be removed and standard delivery will be the only option for Search and Shopping campaigns, as well as for campaigns with shared budgets.
Why the change?
Advertisers typically opt for accelerated delivery when the goal is to drive as many conversions as possible within a target cost per conversion.

It’s been a particularly popular option for Shopping campaigns.
However, Google says, the way that accelerated delivery works can make it an inefficient option.
