Information Needed for Onboarding
  1. Domain:

    • This information is crucial for proper ad delivery and integration.
  4. Specific Requirements:

    • Identify any specific requirements or preferences the publisher may have.
    • This could include custom ad formats, ad placements, or any other unique specifications.

This information has to be collected by the person who is responsible for the publisher management. 

Onboarding for Global Demand

For publishers targeting global demand, gather the following information:

  1. Domain:

    • Provide the domain name associated with the publisher's website or application.
  2. Country:

    • Identify the specific country or countries the publisher is targeting.
  3. Direct or Reseller:

    • Determine whether the publisher is directly working with advertisers or through a reseller.
  4. Instream or Outstream:

    • Clarify whether the publisher intends to display video ads within their content (in-stream) or as standalone units (out-stream).
  5. Floor Price:

    • Determine the desired floor price for the publisher's ad inventory.
    • The floor price is the minimum price at which an ad impression is sold.
  6. MCM (Managed Channel Mapping):
