Protected Media with Smarthub account

We are strengthening our cooperation with Protected Media and introducing functionality that allows you to activate the Protected Media supply scanner in one click, using the Smarthub account.

Now, after establishing a partnership between PM and SmartyHub, you have the opportunity to activate the scanner using your SmartyHub account. It doesn’t require additional settings and is configured automatically by built-in tools.

 

Previously, you needed to create an account on a third-party resource to make settings that were necessary to use a Protected Media scanner. 

From now and on, alongside with that option, you  have another way to activate the scanner: 

Use the SmartHub account. In this case, all configurations are made automatically and you don't need to set up anything.

Statistics and Billing

You can see the results and price of the scan in the Scanners statistics section:

 

Based on the results of scanning, you will receive invoices of 2 types: pre-bid and post-bid, depending on what types are you using.
Note: The invoices are calculated in the first 5 days of the month and must be paid within 10 days (NET-10).

 

The basic price for Pre-bid is $600 per 1 billion requests, i.e 0.06 cents CPM.

Case 2: You have scanned 500 million requests in March. Before April 5 you will receive a bill for $300.

 

The basic price for Post-bid is $3000 per 100 million impressions, i.e 3 cents CPM.
