Auto Request


The Fairbid SDK can automatically request a placement for you.

The initial request for the placement must come from you, the publisher, as soon as the placement becomes relevant in your app. This could be at the start of the app (together with Fairbid SDK), when the user enters a particular part of the app or reaches a certain level in a game.

The FairBid SDK continues to request a Placement automatically:

  • as long as there is no fill
  • following an impression
  • after an error on show
  • when a fill was lost (due to an impression of the demand source under another FairBid placement)


Auto-requests are repeated upon no fill with increasing intervals: 10s, 20s, 40s to a maximum of 5 minutes.

After the initial request, the Fairbid SDK runs an auction for the placement according to the configuration set in the console.

To retrieve information about the state of a placement you can use:

  • Callbacks to know when a placement is available or not
  • APIs to check if a certain placement is available and ready to be shown

Disabling Auto-Request

By default, the SDK requests ads automatically, unless you state otherwise in the start options. For more information on Advanced Initialization Options, click here.

Stopping Auto-Request

If a placement is no longer relevant for the user, the auto-request functionality for that placement can be stopped. The stop functionality is available for:


Auto-requesting can be turned off globally at SDK start. Publishers must integrate the SDK with a fully manual flow and taking care to avoid fill, errors, etc.
