Getting Started with the Ad Monetization Platform
To get started, first, you will need to create an account at dashboard.fyber.com. You can do this by clicking the “Sign up here” link on the login page.
As soon as your account is created and approved, you can start integrating the Fyber Ad Monetization Platform. The process looks like this:
- Create your App in our Ad Monetization Dashboard
- Download the Fyber SDK for your platform (mobile apps only)
- Integrate the Fyber SDK into your app (mobile apps only)
- Test the integration
- Submit your updated app to the store, and change the app to LIVE in the Fyber Dashboard. (mobile apps only)
Creating an App
To create your application, log in to the Fyber Dashboard and click the Add new app button on the Apps page. You will then be guided few a few steps to add the required details for your app.
Select a Platform
Click the corresponding platform for your app:
Enter App Details
Here, enter the name of your app. This name will be used to represent your app in the Fyber platform.
Next, paste the App Store for your app. This allows us to use your app’s icon in the Dashboard. Note: If your app is not yet live in the store, you can bypass this by selecting the checkbox: “This app is not listed in the App Store”.
Add a Virtual Currency
To serve rewarded ads from within your app, you need to define a Virtual Currency which will be used to reward the user.
Currency name: The name of your virtual currency, e.g. coins.
Exchange rate (to USD): This is the exchange rate of your app’s currency to USD. You can also change the currency to EUR once you’ve created the app.
Roundup for Video: Depending on the virtual currency exchange rate, the payouts for some videos may be too low to reach one virtual currency unit. For example, if the exchange rate is 10:1 EUR (or USD), a large selection of our video inventory will not be offered to users, even if the payout is nine cents. Enabling this option will round up the rewarded currency for these videos to 1 unit of virtual currency.
In order to achieve the best performance, we recommend the rounding checkbox to be enabled. If the checkbox is selected, all videos will be presented, and eventually the value of the reward for the video view will be rounded up to one virtual currency unit.
That’s it! Now click Finish to create the app, and get started integrating the Ad Monetization Platform.
