Marketplace

Discover publishers and inventory

Use the Marketplace in Display & Video 360 to discover inventory, send request for proposals to publishers, negotiate, and manage deals all in one place. The Marketplace gives you tools to browse all available publishers and products, including Programmatic Guaranteed Deals, or narrow the results by using category filters or search keywords.

How does Display & Video 360 decide what to show me in the Marketplace?

Inventory in Marketplace is by default sorted according to how useful we think different inventory is going to be for your advertiser. This sorting is based on a combination of the forecasted availability of inventory and any past deals your advertiser has had with individual publishers. In addition, you can choose to sort inventory by the total number of impressions available in decreasing order.

If you are within the partner context and are agreeing to a deal, sending a request for proposal (RFP), or assigning a deal from the Marketplace, only the specific partner (and advertisers under it) you are in will appear.

If you are within the advertiser context and are agreeing to a deal, sending a request for proposal (RFP), or assigning a deal from the Marketplace, only the advertiser you are in will appear.
