Lucky for you, GoodBarber offer both in-app purchase and in-app advertising. For those of you using in-app advertising with external ad networks, we've just added a new feature that will for sure interest you: AdMob Mediation.


What is Admob Mediation

Before Mediation, you needed to set up different ad network in your app back office. Each ad network will then work to fill up an "ad container". 
With Admob mediation, the process is much simpler. Indeed, Mediation is a feature of AdMob that helps you manage all of the ad sources you use to serve ads to your apps in one place. Using mediation, you can send incoming ad requests to multiple ad sources and help ensure you find the best available ad sources to fill the requests.

Let Admob Mediation manage your Facebook Ads in your GoodBarber app

In your Back office, under the menu Monetisation > External service, you can see a new "Facebook" tab under Admob. This is where you activate the service.
You'll need
  • First to link your Facebook Ad account to your Admob account.
  • Create an Admob unit id for a mediation group that is setup to request the Facebook Ad network. You can find the step-by-step process in this Admob documentation .
