Mediation

Manage Open Bidding ad sources (Beta)

This feature is currently in beta release to a limited group of publishers.

To use an Open Bidding ad source, you must first set up a partnership with the ad source. The partnership must be active before the Open Bidding ad source can accept ad requests from your AdMob account.

In many cases, this is as simple as creating an account on the ad source's home page. 

Learn more about the ad sources available for Open Bidding and their requirements in the Google Developers guide for Android and iOS

You can view the partnership status of all the available Open Bidding ad sources from the Open Bidding ad sources table. To get to the table, click Mediation in the sidebar. Then, click the Ad sources tab. 

The Open Bidding ad sources table also includes information about how many mediation groups are associated with each ad source.
