The purpose of this article is to guide publishers who want to use the DT FairBid SDK to load and display ads from myTarget via DT FairBid Mediation.
This is a six-step process:
- Create or login to your myTarget Account
- Create an app in myTarget
- Create a placement for your app
- Retrieve the parameters from the myTarget dashboard
- Insert the myTarget parameters into the DT Console
- Add the myTarget SDK to your integration
myTarget currently supports the following ad formats:
- Rewarded Videos
Refer to myTarget for updates on supported ad formats.
Step 1: Create or Login to your myTarget Account
Click here, to create your myTarget account.
Step 2: Create an App in myTarget
Click here and follow the instructions to set-up your app in myTarget.
Step 3: Create a Placement for your App
Click here and follow the instructions to create a placement (slot_id) for your app.
myTarget banners configuration
myTarget allows you to configure the Banner placements (slot_ids) by device type: separately for phones and tablets. On the myTarget dashboard, these ad types are called respectively: Banner Ad Unit and Leaderboard Ad Unit. You cannot use the same Banner Ad placement (slot_id) for both phones and tablets because a placement (slot_id) configured for phone will not render on tablet and vice versa. You need to create them separately in myTarget dashboard.
Use Banner Ad Unit that has fixed size 320x50 for phone placement (slot_id).
Use Leaderboard Ad Unit that has fixed size of 728x90 for tablet (slot_id).
In the DT Console, in order to make a single DT FairBid Banner Placement universal for both phone and tablet we suggest configuring it with two myTarget instances: a Banner and a Leaderboard.
Step 4: Retrieve the Parameters from the myTarget Dashboard
To enable myTarget to work as an Ad Network on the DT FairBid Mediation platform, you must obtain the required parameter from your myTarget account and later insert it into the DT Console.
Set out below are the details of what parameter is required, how and where to obtain it.
|Access Token||Allows you or third party services to access the statistics API of your account. This token is unified for all apps and ad units.|
Alternatively, watch and listen to the video below to find out how to obtain the required parameters:
