Ad sources that support Open Bidding (Closed Beta)

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

Review the table below for details about the ad sources that support Open Bidding today. We are continuously working on enabling more ad sources to be available for Open Bidding.

Note: You must have a partnership with the closed beta Open Bidding ad source before it 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.

All ad sources require a contractual relationship in place before they can accept Open Bidding ad requests. Use the table below to find contact information for all closed beta Open Bidding ad sources. 

Ad sources available to all closed beta publishers

To use one or more of the ad sources below, you’ll first need to set up a partnership with the ad source. Then, add the ad source to your mediation group and start Open Bidding. 

Note that ad sources can choose whether to bid on your ad request based on their own understanding of the inventory. This means that ad sources may not place any bids on traffic they are not interested in. Contact the ad source for further guidance on the ad source’s performance in Open Bidding.
