Monetization

This area allows you to choose from a variety of advertising options for your apps.

Banner ads are small rectangular ads that generate revenue when they're clicked. They are usually shown at the bottom of the screen (but may be shown at the top in some activity types). These ads are relatively popular with users because they don't interfere very much with their use of the app.

You can show banner ads served from AdMob, MobPartner, Amazon Mobile Ads, Millennial Media, AppLovin, StartApp, LeadBolt or a mix of all of them.

If you choose to show more than one, an ad network will be selected randomly by the app each time it needs to show an activity. (Each banner ad network you select has an equal chance of being chosen whenever an activity is shown.)

Remember to click Save Changes at the bottom of the page so the changes are applied to your project, and then build a new version of your app and distribute it to your users.

Note: Banner ads will appear on your app's dashboard by default. If you don't want ads on the dashboard, you can disable the feature by unchecking the "Show Banner Ads on Dashboard" checkbox on your project's Dashboard tab.

AdMob Banners

AdMob ads are cost per click (CPC), which generate a little revenue every time the user clicks on an ad.

Interstitial Ads

Interstitial ads are large ads that appear 'between' activities in your app. Since they really grab the user's attention, they can be more effective than banner ads at generating clicks. However, you don't want to show them too frequently, or you may risk annoying some of your users.

To enable AdMob interstitial ads in your app, check the box labelled AdMob Interstitials, and copy your app's interstitial Ad Unit ID from your AdMob account into the AdMob Ad Unit ID field. See the article Setting Up AdMob Ads for further details.

AppLovin Interstitials

To enable AppLovin interstitial ads in your app, check the box labelled AppLovin Interstitials, and copy your AppLovin Key from your AppLovin account into the AppLovin SDK Key field located in the Banner Ads section (the same key is used for both banners and interstitials). See the article Setting Up AppLovin Ads for further details.

Tapgage Interstitials

To enable Tapgage interstitial ads in your app, check the box labelled Tapgage Interstitials, and copy your app's App ID and Slot ID for your interstitial from your Tapgage account into the Tapgage App ID and Tapgage Slot ID fields. See the article How to get a Tapgage App ID and Ad Slot ID for details.

Time between Ads

This setting controls the duration between interstitial ad impressions. Try to choose an appropriate value based on how often you think your users would want to see an interstitial ad. Keep in mind that shorter times aren't always better -- setting this value too low may cause some users to uninstall your app.

Require several interactions before showing an interstitial ad

This setting controls whether or not the user has to interact with your app more than once to see an interstitial ad. Enabling this option will add a bit of randomness to when the interstitial ad is shown so that it does not always display when the first activity is selected.

Remember to click Save Changes at the bottom of the page so the changes are applied to your project, and then build a new version of your app and distribute it to your users.
