Set up Banner Ads

Banner Configuration Prerequisites

Before starting to use banner ads, you are supposed to provide us with the following data in an Excel file. You can request a template Excel file from us, and we will send it to you via email or Slack.

You may find 4 sheets in the template. We will explain them in their sections.

Landing pages

A landing page is a page where you can display banner ads. For each landing page that you want to display banners, you should provide

  • Name: A unique name describing the landing page.
  • URL: The URL of the landing page.

Example:

NameURL
Homepage Christmashttp://example.com/home

Slots (Landing page)

A slot is a two-dimensional area in your application. It is a placeholder for banners. You can specify different dimensions (width/height) for different device types (desktop and mobile).

A landing page can contain any number of slots. For each slot that belongs to a landing page, you should provide

  • ID: A unique identifier that can contain alphanumeric characters and the following symbols: !"#$%&'()*+,-._/:;<>[email protected][]^{}~=
  • Name: An optional name that describes the slot.
  • Page name: The name of the landing page that the slot belongs to.
  • Width: The width of the image of the slot.
  • Height : The height of the image of the slot.

Example:

IDNamePage NameWidthHeightAlternative WidthAlternative Height
top-slot-1Christmas TopHomepage Christmas100504040
right-slot-2Christmas RightHomepage Christmas50200

Name is not mandatory. You may leave it empty

You can add any number of alternative widths/heights by creating additional columns in the excel file.

Slots (Category) and Slots (Search)

Besides landing pages, you can also define slots in your category or search page. The format is almost the same as the slots (landing page). The only difference is “Page name” exists only in slots (landing page).
