Testing Your Placement

Test integration once per ad type - it is not necessary to test each placement.

Once the Verizon Ads SDK has been integrated, we highly recommend testing each placement type (banner, interstitial, interstitial video or native) to ensure integration was successful. Testing need only be done once per ad type.

Activate the Test Ad Source to test the integration of a placement. Once the test creative is activated, you will receive a stock creative from SSP.

From the Monetization Dashboard, add a Test Ad Source to a placement.

Note: test ad sources will have 100% fill, but do not earn revenue, so please ensure that you archive or un-deploy all test ad sources before launching your site.

Name the Test Ad Source and select the creative type and/or ad size. Then save the Test Ad Source.

Once created, the tTest Ad Source will initially reside in the unassigned ad sources section.

Drag and drop the Test Ad Source from the Unassigned section into a tier to make it an active Ad Source.

Once Test Ad Source has been added to your Active Sources, send test traffic from the version of your app that utilizes the Verizon Ads SDK. Check that the SSP creative is in your application or site.

The appearance of a creative with the Verizon Media logo confirms that your integration worked correctly.

Verify with Reporting

Run a traffic report on your Test Ad Source to ensure that test traffic is properly reaching our platform. Go to the reporting page and select the Traffic Report. Be aware that it could take up to 20 minutes for traffic reports to begin reflecting activity.

The result should be a 100% fill rate along with ad requests and responses confirming that the reporting integration is working.

When correct integration is confirmed, move the Test Ad Source to the Unassigned section of the Monetization Dashboard.

Now that integration is successful take the next step —create and activate ad sources.
