Use the dropdown menus to select the AerServ app that corresponds to your current Tapjoy iOS and/or Android Tapjoy app. (If your Tapjoy app is only on a single platform, you can leave the other platform blank.)

 

Create a Mediated Content Card on the Tapjoy dashboard

  1. On the Tapjoy Dashboard, Go to "Monetize," then click the "Create Content" button in the upper right.
  2. Scroll down the list of content types until you get to Mediated Auto Play Video (also called "Direct Play") or Mediated Display Ad (also called "FSI"). Select the appropriate content card and click the "AerServ" button:

  5. Click the green "Save" button on the bottom left:

Prioritize the Mediated Content Card on the Tapjoy dashboard

  2. Drag the Mediated Content Card you just created up and down the placement to prioritize it. Content Cards on top of the stack are checked first:
