Integration

Ask your LoopMe Account Manager to provide unique appkeys for your Flex ad spot.

Enter your appkeys in the Flex Tag Generator. Please be aware that Flex tag is different for DFP or direct integrations, so please ensure you have the correct configuration of the Flex Tag Generator.

DFP Integration

How to create a DFP ad slot for the Flex ad tag Make sure your DFP ad spot is the 3rd party type with the Safe frame option turned OFF. Put the Flex tag into that DFP ad slot. It may take up to 10 min for the DFP dashboard to display the changes applied.

How to create passback tag for Flex ad unit Make sure you have generated a passback tag with standard GPT syntax in the DFP admin panel. Put the passback tag into flex generator with other LoopMe keys and generate the flex ad unit. Put the Flex tag into that DFP ad slot. It may take up to 10 min for the DFP dashboard to display the changes applied.

Direct website integration

Add the direct Flex tag into your mobile web page at the place where you want the advertisements to display. Please make sure the flex tag is not wrapped into additional iframes as it may cause display issues.

Recommendations

  • To increase the chance of an advertisement to display, position the Flex ad spot in the 2nd or 3rd screen of the page. This will provide more time for the video ads to be pre-loaded and be displayed while the user is still on the web page.
  • If you want to display your header/footer website bars above the scroller ad spot, configure your Flex tag as below (offsetTop and offsetBottom parameters).
...

var config = {
containerId: 'loopme_flex_1',
vastTimeout: 250,
ads: adverts,
offsetTop: хх,
offsetBottom: хх
};
...

where хх - height of top/bottom bar (in pixels)
