Check out these new features, enhancements and changes introduced in Verizon Media Ad Platform.
New Dynamic Product Ads Guide¶
We’ve rolled out a new portal dedicated to Dynamic Product Ads in our documentation suite. This empowers partners and advertisers with an expanded set of resources in one location, to help streamline DPA planning and setup. This guide is a repository intended for DPA partners, developers and account managers. It serves as the source of truth for the combined documentation suites for all technical content dedicated to DPA for the Native API and Native UI. Use our guide as a toolkit to navigate topics and essential reference material, and to explore implementation details, how-to’s, case studies, FAQs and best practices.
New Thought Leadership Series: Trusted News¶
Verizon Media has launched a new thought leadership series, starting with Trusted News. Also, Verizon Media has created a Coronavirus hub page across the Yahoo ecosystem (News, Finance, Sports, Lifestyle and Entertainment) that aggregates the latest news about the pandemic in the U.S. and across the globe to keep our nearly 900M users informed with trusted content.
New Option: Run Carousel Ads as Single Image¶
We’ve introduced the option to run Carousel Ads as a single image, to help boost your campaign’s reach, using the new
runAsSingleImagefield. See details in the Fields section of Ad Object API and in Ad Object Bulk documentation. Also see the Carousel Ads section of the Advertiser Guide for a screenshot of where to toggle the switch in the UI to turn on this feature.
New: Countdown Timer Prefix Text for Flash Sale Ad¶
To add Countdown Prefix to a Flash Sale Ad in the UI, refer to the Advertiser Guide for options and examples.
Updated Verizon Media Native UI¶
We’ve updated the design of our Native platform to reflect the updated Verizon Media branding. Note that this update does not change the current Native UI functionality. The UI may look a little different, but trust that you still have access to all the great data, inventory and performance that you are used to.
Meanwhile, we’re working to update the existing screenshots of the UI to match this new Verizon Media design. Stay tuned.
