Auto Request


The FairBid SDK can automatically request (and keep requesting in case no ad is available) a placement for you.

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

After the initial request, the SDK runs an auction for the placement according to 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 is not available anymore
  • 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 using the start options. For more information, read Advanced Initialization Options.

Stopping Auto-Request

If a placement is no longer relevant for the user, the auto-request functionality for a 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.
