Floating Banner — a “sticky” banner that is visible to users as they consume content. 

In-Page Push – high converting, OS-specific skinned Native banner.

In-Feed – displays image or Native ad in-content, expanding as the viewer scrolls.

Push – a device notification Native ad once user subscribes to site content.

There are also several additional formats:

Step 3. Now you need to choose a conversion tracking pixel. 

AdSupply offers two distinctive conversion tracking options: Pixel tracking and Postback tracking. Within Pixel Tracking, AdSupply offers two types — JavaScript and iFrame. And three levels of tracking: Placement, Campaign, and Advertiser levels. AdSupply’s Postback Tracking — known as server-to-server tracking or S2S — is the most secure and reliable method. It is done without the use of a pixel or cookies — all necessary information is passed back in the URL itself.

Setting up a campaign is not enough to launch it and start receiving traffic. You need to configure the media (the “Create Media” button):

The placement setup contains media and frequency capping, they can also have a separate budget. Basically, placements indicate ad formats, country, media, targeting, budget, and pricing within the campaign. 

Each ad format must be set up as a separate placement, while additional ad formats (Standard Banner, Interstitial, Overlay, Content Blocker) are set up by account managers.

If you wish to target a specific carrier, you will have to prove an IP range.
