Building upon our years of expertise in mobile-first mediation and real-time bidding, Advanced Bidding is the complete reimagination of header bidding for the mobile app environment. It's designed to help publishers more efficiently monetize their inventory by replacing the traditional ad waterfall with simultaneous real-time bidding (RTB) from ad networks and DSPs.
Our unique position as the ad platform of choice for app publishers, and as a leading in-app RTB exchange with over 180 demand sources, gives us the distinctive ability to run a true unified auction and accelerate the adoption of app bidding at scale.
Does it work? Our Advanced Bidding whitepaper details MoPub’s approach to running A/B tests designed to uncover the impact of Advanced Bidding compared to a traditional waterfall-based mediation approach. It includes best practices for testing metholodogy and results seen by leading mobile app publishers Uken Games and Publishers Clearing House.

MoPub has operated the leading mobile real-time bidding exchange at scale for years; we're now applying this expertise to bring networks into RTB. When DSPs and networks compete, publishers win.
Both MoPub and Advanced Bidding are mobile-first. We've focused on building for apps since the beginning, so there's no attempts to copy/paste desktop solutions and no legacy desktop baggage.
Advanced Bidding is deeply integrated into the primary ad platform, allowing a true unified auction: bringing together direct deals, real-time and waterfall networks, and DSP demand to compete for each impression.
Native, fullscreen, rewarded video and more: we support publishers' growth with access to all ad formats, so they are ready when there's a shift in their ad monetization strategy.
MoPub puts publishers in the driver's seat. We are the only ad platform with full transparency and control for the unified auction and waterfall.
We're trusted by more than 55,000 apps around the world, which means MoPub is best positioned to accelerate the adoption of in-app bidding at scale.
"MoPub is better placed to make Advanced Bidding work than anyone else."

“The other hacky solutions that require publishers to create and manage hundreds of line items in order to imitate what header bidding does on desktop in mobile in-app are problematic...what MoPub is doing with Advanced Bidding is exactly what we all have been waiting for.”

"With our model we only bid on selective deviceIDs. If we have a chance to bid, we are likely to outbid a network for the impression if it comes from one of those IDs."
