SDK Bidder Network Guides

This page gives you step-by-step instructions for how you set a variety of SDK bidder networks live as ad networks on the MAX Mediation platform. Before you start, make sure you have correctly integrated the supported MAX ad formats into your application.

When you integrate third-party SDKs into your Mobile Property, you are solely responsible for such integrations. You and the third-party SDK provider must ensure compliant data processing and treatment of any end user- or device-based privacy choices or flags.

As a prerequisite, make sure you have added the adapter for the network by following the instructions in Preparing Mediated Networks. After you complete this integration, you can validate your integration by using the Mediation Debugger.

  • Amazon Publisher Services (APS) is an invitation-only program. To integrate APS, you first must create an APS account. Contact your APS representative to set up an APS account, or fill out the form on the APS website to request access. If APS approves your request, you will receive an invitation link that you can follow to sign up and to create your account with APS. You must complete this process before you proceed to set up APS in MAX mediation.

    You must use AppLovin MAX SDK version 11.0.0 or higher to access the Amazon network. For more information, please refer to Amazon’s documentation.

    Step 1. Create an Amazon Account

    To access Amazon ad inventory through MAX Mediation platform, you must have a valid account with Amazon. Sign in to your account through the Amazon Publisher Services page. If you do not already have an account, you will be prompted to create an account.

    Payment information is required to receive ads. Please make sure to submit your payment information through the Payment Settings page.

    Step 2. Create an Application in Amazon Publisher Services Portal

    Log into your Amazon account and select SETUP > App & Slot Setup to start creating your apps.

    Add an App. Google Play Store or Apple Store or Amazon Store URL. Find App. Enter a store URL to find an app.

    After you create an app, select Actions > SETUP > ADD A SLOT and add an ad slot to your app.

    Amazon leaders (tablet banners) are not supported. Only use Amazon banners when creating slot IDs in the Amazon dashboard.

    Slot Format: Media Type drop-down. Ad Size drop-down. Slot Name input field. Price Points: Price points are the CPM values that are targeted when an impression is available. Sufficient price point coverage will help maximize revenue. Be sure to update your ad server/mediator to reflect any changes made to your price points within the APS portal. See Resources for more information. ✓ Recommended button. Custom button. Table: Range, Increment, Range Start, Range End, number of Price Points. Total.

    You must create a new ad slot that is used only on MAX. You cannot re-use previous ad slot IDs. MAX supports Amazon interstitial video and rewarded video, but these formats on APS are manually configured by the Amazon team on behalf of publishers. Please reach out to your Amazon contacts for further help.

    Step 3. Upload Your Price Point Mapping

    Amazon will share with you a CSV file that contains price point mapping. Upload it into MAX Dashboard on the ad units for which you would like to enable APS:

    Amazon Publisher Services. Status. Include All. Drag and Drop your Amazon Price Point CSV here or Browse Local Files. Export.

    You only have to do this once, as MAX uses the mapping across your entire account. If you update your price points, upload the new file by using the same process. AppLovin merges the new file into the existing price points AppLovin has in its system, overriding any existing price points and adding any new price points.

    Step 4. Add Amazon Publisher Services entries in your app-ads.txt file

    Beginning in , Amazon no longer bids on apps that do not have the proper app-ads.txt lines placed in a valid app-ads.txt file.

    Visit the app-ads.txt section in your Amazon Publisher Services portal and follow the instructions there to update your app-ads.txt file appropriately.
