Download and Integration

To download the Verizon Media adapters, navigate to the Mediation Integration Tool. You will also need to download the Verizon Media SDK, which can be found below.

For the latest download and integration instructions, ensure that you have consulted Verizon Media’s tutorials before you integrate the SDK and adapters.

  • Android Integration Help: Verizon Media adapters are released as an Android Archive (AAR) file starting from version The AAR includes the required Manifest data for Verizon Media. As a result, publishers no longer have to update their AndroidManifest manually for any generic data, such as permissions and Activities. Any other app-level placement configuration required by Verizon must be manually entered into the AndroidManifest.

Set up Verizon Media on the MoPub dashboard

  • Site ID and Placement ID are required.

Migrate Verizon Media from Custom Native Setup

  • Transfer Site ID and Placement ID (if applicable) from the old custom native connection to the supported Verizon Media instance.

  • MoPub will initiate the following Verizon Media custom event class names to render the ads:

    • iOS
      • MPVerizonBannerCustomEvent
      • MPVerizonInterstitialCustomEvent
    • Android
      • com.mopub.mobileads.VerizonBanner
      • com.mopub.mobileads.VerizonInterstitial
      • com.mopub.mobileads.VerizonRewardedVideo (Android only, iOS coming up)
      • com.mopub.mobileads.VerizonNative (Android only, iOS coming up)

Note: If you are manually entering the above-mentioned class names or any other class names, migrate to the new network setup and pause the “custom native network”. If you are using your own custom event class names, you should have both the old custom native network setup & the new Verizon Media network UI setup for backward compatibility. During migration, please make sure the custom native network and the Verizon Media network are not live at the same time as this may cause revenue-impacting issues.

Migrate from Millennial Media demand

In an effort to ease migration to the Verizon Ads SDK, mediation adapters will work with custom SDK networks that were configured to mediate to the legacy Millennial Media SDK. However, this legacy functionality is deprecated, and it is recommended that you start to migrate existing waterfall setups from old custom events to the new supported Verizon Ads SDK network in the MoPub UI.
