Inventory Overview

You can select the exchanges where you want (your ads) to participate in the auction. You can select as many exchanges as you want to target.

You can also target private marketplace deals (if they are available to you) by entering the deal IDs and selecting those deals. You can target multiple deals on a single line.

When a bid opportunity comes in from an Exchange with no specific deal ID:

  • A line that targets this Exchange and meets all targeting criteria is eligible to participate in this auction.
  • A line that targets a deal ID (within or outside of this Exchange) is not eligible to participate in this auction.
  • A line that targets another Exchange, but not this Exchange, is not eligible to participate in this auction.

When a bid opportunity comes in from an Exchange with a specific deal ID:

  • A line that targets another deal ID (within or outside of this Exchange) is not eligible to participate in this auction.
  • A line that does not target a specific deal, but targets this Exchange and passes all other targeting criteria is eligible to participate in the auction only if the opportunity is associated with a shared deal. For spot buy deals, the line must target the deal explicitly to participate in the auction.
