How to create PMP deals

What is a PMP deal?

A private marketplace (PMP) deal is a private auction that the publisher sets up only for select advertisers. This allows a direct deal to occur through the programmatic landscape. For more information, read our blog article about the types of programmatic advertising.

With AdButler, a publisher can easily create PMP deals, each with a corresponding Deal ID. These Deal IDs are the ones that publishers use to grant their demand partners access to their zones or inventory.

You must add the Programmatic Solution add-on to your subscription to access AdButler's programmatic bidding features. For information on adding add-ons, read How to change your subscription.
