The platform selection indicates which platform you will deploy your build. If you are using a Unity , you will need to pass an Android app id when your app is launched on an Android device. If you are using the REST API, you will need to use an Android app id when requesting offers for an Android device. Once you have selected your framework, it cannot be changed.

  4. Click Add.
  5. Once you are happy with your settings, click Continue.

Step 3: Optional: Third Party Network Credentials

Third party network credentials allow FairBid to synchronize and mediate ad formats on your behalf.

For each third party network you have selected to integrate with, you will need to enter specific parameters as required by the third party network. Each third party network has different requirements.

  2. When you have finished entering the required parameters, click Continue
  3. Continue until all third party networks have been completed.

Please Note:

If you do not have an account with a third party network, you can choose Skip this network, create and account with the third party and edit these settings at a later time under the Mediation Settings.

Step 4: SDK Integration

The framework that you choose includes all of the third party networks. You will need to integrate the downloaded FairBid SDK in your app to use the FairBid platform to monetize your app(s).
