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 Open Bidding ad sources. 

Open Beta ad sources: Available to all Open Bidding 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.
