There are no price floors for any MyTarget placement by default. If you want to set it, you have to request a price floor from MyTarget manager or use Appodeal account.
Step 2. Link your MyTarget account with Appodeal
1. Get Token from your MyTarget account.
MyTarget provides reporting API, which helps to get MyTarget performance data for publisher sites and apps automatically.
To obtain Reporting API access you need to get an access token:
- Open Access Tokens settings page in MyTarget account.
- Create new or get a current Reporting API token.
- Copy access token
- Add your MyTarget account to Appodeal. To do this follow this link → go to MyTarget → Link your account and add email for MyTarget account and API access token.
Step 3. Create line items for your app
- Go to Line Items in app settings.

- Placement ID
- Slot ID
You can find all that info on ad units list in MyTarget dashboard.
Choose your MyTarget account, fill in PadGroupId and press the Add line item button.
Fill in the following information:
- Line Item label (a name for your ad unit in Appodeal dashboard)
- eCPM (manual ad unit's position in the waterfall or enable automatic mode)
- Slot ID
- Placement ID
Please check the currency of MyTarget CPM floor
Appodeal uses USD currency.
Keep this in mind when linking MyTarget ad unit in Add line item menu.
Make sure to choose the correct mode. If you have bidding mode on Mytarget side then turn on the toggle to use bidding.
After creating line items, save the changes.
Make sure that the newly created line item is marked as enabled (the toggle is on “ON”).
Step 4. How To Receive Live Ads
MyTarget serves ads only to users in Russia and the CIS.
- Make sure your app has been moderated, the status next to your app should be green.
- Make sure to fill out the payment details.
- Make sure you have selected the correct type of integration:
- in-app bidding - for bidding mode
- In order to receive ads you need to install the Odnoklassniki (Android, iOS)app on your phone.
- Turn on VPN and choose Russia.
- Launch the Odnoklassniki application and scroll through the feed until an advertising banner appears.
- Then you can launch your application and try to show MyTarget ads.
Step 5. Update app-ads.txt file
Be sure to set up app-ads.txt to help bidders and advertisers identify whether or not ad inventory is being sold by authorized sellers.
- If you implemented the app-ads.txt file, you should add the MyTarget account line. To get one, read the official documentation in your Profile Settings.
- After you have copied the lines from MyTarget, you need to insert them after #MyTarget line and replace ours (all lines in #MyTarget section) with yours.
- Save changes and wait at least 24 hours for ad networks to crawl and verify your app-ads.txt file.
Now you can monetize with MyTarget through Appodeal.
