Verizon Media

This guide is intended for publishers who want to use the MoPub SDK to load and display ads from Verizon Media via mediation. Below, you will find information about the ad network, integration/setup instructions, and more. For more information about how MoPub mediation works, visit this guide.

Supported Ad Formats

The following ad formats are currently supported by Verizon. For the latest support, visit the Verizon homepage.

  • Banner
  • Medium Rectangle
  • Interstitial
  • Rewarded Video (Advanced Bidding not supported)
  • Native (Advanced Bidding not supported)

Download and Integration

To download the Verizon Media adapters, navigate to the Mediation Integration Tool. You must also download the Verizon Media SDK.

For the latest download and integration instructions, consult 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 1.0.2.0. The AAR includes the required Manifest data for Verizon Media. As a result, you no longer have to update your 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

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

  2. MoPub will initiate the following Verizon Media mediation adapter class names to render the ads:

    • iOS

      • MPVerizonBannerCustomEvent
      • MPVerizonInterstitialCustomEvent
      • MPVerizonRewardedVideoCustomEvent
      • MPVerizonNativeCustomEvent
    • Android

      • com.mopub.mobileads.VerizonBanner
      • com.mopub.mobileads.VerizonInterstitial
      • com.mopub.mobileads.VerizonRewardedVideo
      • com.mopub.mobileads.VerizonNative

    If you are manually entering these 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 mediation adapter class names, have both the old custom native network and the new Verizon Media network UI set up for backward compatibility.

Important: During migration, make sure the custom native network and the Verizon Media network are not both live at the same time, because this may impact your revenue.
