There are various reasons why an ad might be disapproved when you try to launch it on Facebook.

What to do? 

Go to Ads Manager and find your rejected ad. Select Edit to view the rejection reason. Next, select Certify Compliance and follow the certification steps.

In case you have successfully passed the certification, you can re-upload your video, and it will be approved by Facebook.

Another option is to edit your Published video, and it can be done within Promo. 

Once on the Publish Page, you need to click on "Edit video" button from the right side of the page:

Please note that if you have limited amount of credits, and if you replace/add Premium clips, credits will be deducted accordingly.
