Integral Ad Science and DoubleVerify "Invoiced" partner cost deprecation
Display & Video 360 will be removing the option to invoice partner costs for Integral Ad Science and DoubleVerify non-prebid directly from a line item.
Currently, there’s an option under a line item’s Additional Settings > Partner Costs to invoice these costs. With this option selected, Google collects payment for these costs to remit to the third-party vendor. Going forward, customers will need to pay the vendor directly for these services, as is often the arrangement today.
This setting will be removed from Display & Video 360 in two stages:
- December 1, 2019: The option to invoice these partner costs has been removed for new line items.
- January 15, 2020: Exiting line items with "Invoiced" checked for these partner costs will have this option removed and the third-party vendors will no longer be paid directly.
