This guide provides instructions on how to integrate Amazon CPM Ads using ad servers such as Doubleclick for Publishers (DFP). Getting Started To get started, you will need to access your Associates Central and DFP accounts. The 4-step process is as follows: You should budget 1 hour for this process. Actual time may vary depending on your set up. If you are already familiar with creating passback (also known as redirect) ad codes, you can skip to Step 2. 1
2 STEP 1: Create passback ad unit in DFP (30 min) You need to create a passback in DFP before you can get your Amazon CPM Ads ad code in Step 3 of this guide. Below, we describe how to pass back to your existing DFP ad campaigns (excluding Amazon CPM Ads). The advantage of targeting your existing campaigns is that you will maximize the campaigns that are eligible to be shown if a request is passed back. 1 In this Step, you will: Create passback ad units in DFP Create a passback placement to simplify passback management in DFP Target existing campaigns to the new passback ad units to maximize your passback revenue 1a. Create Passback Ad Unit: You will create a dedicated passback ad unit in DFP. In DFP>Inventory>Ad Units, click +New Ad Unit. Create an ad unit for each Amazon CPM Ads ad size (728x90, 160x600, 300x250, and 300x600). o Code: Use, AmazonCPMAdsPassbackwidthxheight, where width & height denote the ad size (e.g., CPMAdsPassback728x90 ) o Name: Use the same name as code (add spaces. E.g., CPM Ads Passback 728x90 ) o Size: Select one ad size only (e.g., 728x90) o Target Window: Leave at _top o Placements: Leave blank (we ll assign placements after we ve created the ad units) New Ad Unit Set Up in DFP: 1 Some publishers choose a specific ad network. If this is what you d like to do, then use the ad network s code as the passback ad code and the network s average ecpm by ad size as the target CPM in Step 3 below. 2
3 1b. Create a new placement: Create a placement in DFP to facilitate passback management In DFP> Inventory>Placements, click +New Placement. Name the new placement Amazon CPM Ads Passback, and assign the passback ad unit(s) to it. o Disable the Offer this placement to advertisers through Google AdWords option. 3

5 Adding Amazon CPM Ads Passback placement as a target Open each line item and target the line to the Amazon CPM Ads Passback placement. o Lines you target to the Amazon CPM Ads passback placement will be eligible to serve an if the ad request is passed back. o Any run of network lines will already be targeted to the passback ad unit so you don t have to target those. STEP 2: CPM target in DFP (10 min) You set a target CPM to get your Amazon CPM Ads ad code in Step 3. We recommend that you first use your average ecpm by ad size and adjust over time. In DFP>Reports>Creatives, click edit. Filter by the following: o Rows: Creative Size o Columns: Impressions and Average ecpm o Set last month as the date range. We recommend that you use the resulting average ecpm by ad size as your target CPM in Step 3. 5

At the end of this step, you will have one Amazon CPM Ads code per ad size. 1. Go to Associates Central>Amazon CPM Ads tab> Create New Ad Code 2. Enter your ad unit name, ad size, and target CPM. 3. Add your passback ad code.

AmazonCPMAdsPassbackWidthxHeight: With the name of the passback ad unit (e.g., AmazonCPMadspassback300x250) created in Step , 250: With the ad size (w, h) that you specified For more information, read Google s notes about GPT passback tags or GAM passback tags. 4.

Slot_name : The ad unit name that will be used in your ad unit detail report in Associates Central. You are NOT allowed to modify this variable. Passback : Your passback ad code.

STEP 4: Traffic the Amazon CPM Ads ad code in your Ad Server (10 min) You will now traffic the Amazon CPM Ads ad code in DFP as an advertising campaign. You will need your Amazon CPM Ads ad code from Step 3 as well as a login to DFP. 1. Login into DFP, click Orders and create a new order: a. Name: Amazon CPM Ads b. Advertiser: Amazon 2.

Display creatives: Set to default, One or more. j. Rotate creatives: Leave at default, Optimized. k. Frequency: Don t check; we set one on our side. l.
