Advertisers

To create advertisers, you need to have Ad Ops permissions. Check out Manage Users for information on user permissions.

If you have opted to organize your seat using advertiser groups, you need to associate each advertiser under the seat with an existing advertiser group. Check out Advertiser Groups if you need help.

Create an Advertiser

Create advertisers on the Advertisers page.

To create an advertiser:

  1. On the Advertisers page, click the New Advertiser button.
You see the New Advertiser page.
new-advertiser-button
  1. On the New Advertiser page, enter the advertiser name in the Advertiser Name field.
  2. Move the Status slider to the right to make the advertiser active. If you are no longer working with the advertiser, move the slider to the left to make the advertiser Inactive.
  3. From the Advertiser Properties page, enable or disable the Optimize using Cross Device Conversions slider, as follows:
  • Move the slider to the right (Enabled) to track and report on conversions that take place across multiple devices. For example, if an impression is served to a user’s mobile device, but that user ends up converting and completing a purchase for the advertised product on their desktop, it is considered a cross-device conversion.
  • Move the slider to the left (Disabled) if you do not want to track cross-device conversions. For example, if you validate conversions with vendors that cannot track mobile conversions, you may want to disable cross-device conversions.
  1. For Website, enter or edit the URL of the advertiser’s website.
  2. Enter or edit the categories for the advertiser’s business. Do the following:
  • For Primary Category, choose the primary category for the advertiser’s business from the drop-down list.
  • For Secondary Category, choose a secondary category for the advertiser’s business from the drop-down list.
  1. For new advertisers, set up the currency and time zone.

Important

When you set the currency and time zone for an advertiser, you cannot go back and edit them after you create the advertiser.

Setting Description
Currency From the Currency drop-down list, select the currency in which transactions should be displayed for this advertiser.
Time Zone From the Time Zone drop-down list, select the default timezone in which the advertiser’s data will be aggregated for running reports.
  1. Select the group you want to associate this advertiser with from the Advertiser Group drop-down list. Check out Advertiser Groups if you need help.
  2. If you want to cap impressions across all of your campaigns, do the following:
  • Select the Frequency Capping checkbox.
  • Select a frequency capping duration from the Duration drop-down list. The duration sets the time interval in which impressions are capped. For example, selecting Monthly caps impressions at x impressions per month.
  • Specify the number of impressions that you want to be served to consumers during that interval. The specified value determines the maximum number that can be served to a consumer during the frequency capping interval. For example, 30 impressions per month.
  1. In the Billing Information area, optionally type a default Profit Margin percentage. The profit margin percentage is carried over to all new line items you create for the advertiser. You can always overwrite the profit margin percentage at the line item level.
