This guide will instruct you step-by-step on how to set AppLovin as an ad network on the AdTiming Mediation platform.
Before You Start
Step 1. Create an AppLovin Account
Step 2. Retrieve Your AppLovin SDK Key
AppLovin automatically creates an application in your account after the first Ad Request is made with their SDK in your app, so you don’t need to specifically create one on their Admin site. The App name in your account will be the same as the app name defined in your AdTiming.config file (Android) and/or Plist file (iOS).
Step 3. Obtain AppLovin Report Key & SDK Key
Insert below two pieces of data from the AppLovin account into your AdTiming Ad Network Setup in order for AppLovin to work correctly in connection with AdTiming.
Report Key: This is a unique identifier for your AppLovin account, which allows your AdTiming Mediation Platform to import performance data from your AppLovin account to use in reporting and optimization.
SDK Key: This is a unique identifier for your AppLovin account, which is used by the AdTiming Mediation SDK to init the AppLovin Adapter for your apps.
Once you obtain this information, you should configure the AppLovin parameters in your AdTiming Account. Go to the 'Account' tab and select 'Keys' from the left side menu.
Step 4. Configure AppLovin's Parameters into AdTiming Account
1. Once you have both of these parameters, log in to your AdTiming account and go to Mediation -> Ad Network Setup
2. Select AppLovin from the list of Available Ad Networks
3. Fill in the AppLovin 'Report Key‘ and the 'SDK Key' and click 'Save'.
4. You will then see AppLovin as Active for Mediation Status on your Setup list.
Step 5. Add the AppLovin frameworks to your Build
AdTiming supports both Cocoapods and Manualdownload mechanisms.
To Integrate the AppLovin SDK with Cocoapods, enter the following line in your podfile and you are good to go!
1. Download the AppLovin framework
you can find the lastest AppLovin SDK here.
2. Add the AppLovin frameworks to your Project
Step 6. Configure Rewarded Video in Applovin's Admin
Once the AppLovin Adapter has been added to your build, you need to enable the Rewarded Video functionality in the AppLovin Admin.
1. Go to 'Manage Apps' and select the specific app you want to configure
2. Scroll down to the 'Rewarded Video' section and set the following options
Frequency Capping – Do not frequency cap Rewarded Videos
Virtual Currency Details – The AdTiming Mediation Adapter will set this, so you can leave the default values
Callback Options – Client-side callbacks only
3. Click on 'Save'
Step 7. Update Info.plist
If you have added AppLovin SDK（6.12.0+） in your project and integrate AppLovin Banner Type ads, you need to update your application Info.plist file, add string value your AppLovin SDK Key AppLovinSdkKey key. You don't need to perform this step to integrate Interstitial and Rewarded Video type ads.
You are now all set to deliver AppLovin Network Ads through the AdTiming Mediation platform!
