This guide shows you how to use the Google Mobile Ads SDK to load and display ads from Pangle using mediation, covering bidding integrations. It covers how to add Pangle to an ad unit's mediation configuration, and how to integrate the Pangle SDK and adapter into an Android app.

Supported integrations and ad formats

The AdMob mediation adapter for Pangle has the following capabilities:

Integration
Bidding
Waterfall
Formats
Banner
Interstitial
Rewarded
Rewarded Interstitial
Native  1

1 Native ads require Pangle adapter version 4.5.0.6.1 or higher.

Requirements

  • Android API level 19 or higher
  • Latest Google Mobile Ads SDK

Step 1: Set up Pangle

Sign up or Log in to your Pangle account.

Add a new application

Navigate to the Applications tab and click on the Add App button.

Select Android as the Operating System and fill out the rest of the form. Then, click Submit.

Take note of your application's App ID.

Create an ad placement

Once your application has been created, click on the Add button as shown below to create your ad placement.

Select your desired Ad Format, Ad Placement Name and select In-App Bidding as the Bidding Type. Fill out the rest of the form and click Submit.

Once your ad placement is created, take note of the Ad Placement ID.

Step 2: Configure mediation settings for your AdMob ad unit

You need to add Pangle to the mediation configuration for your ad unit. First sign in to your AdMob account.

Navigate to the Mediation tab. If you have an existing mediation group you'd like to modify, click the name of that mediation group to edit it, and skip ahead to Add Pangle as an ad source.

To create a new mediation group, select Create Mediation Group.

Mediation details

Enter your ad format and platform, then click Continue.

Give your mediation group a name, and select locations to target. Next, set the mediation group status to Enabled. Then click Add Ad Units, which will open up the ad unit selection overlay.

Mediation group 2

Associate this mediation group with your existing AdMob ad unit. Then click Done.

Select ad unit

You should now see the ad units card populated with the ad units you selected.

Group ad units

Add Pangle as an ad source

Under the Bidding card in the Ad Sources section, select Add Ad Source. Then select Pangle.

Next, enter the App ID as well as the Ad Placement ID obtained in the previous section and click Done.

Finally, click Save.

Using rewarded ads

In the settings for your rewarded ad unit, provide values for the reward amount and reward type. Then, to ensure you provide the same reward to the user no matter which ad network is served, check the Apply to all networks in Mediation groups box.

If you don't apply this setting, the Pangle adapter defaults to a reward of type "" (empty string) with a value of 1. The Pangle SDK does not provide specific reward values for its rewarded ads.

For more information on setting reward values for AdMob ad units, see Create an ad unit.

Step 3: Import the Pangle SDK and adapter

Add the following implementation dependencies with the latest versions of the Pangle SDK and adapter in the app-level build.gradle file:

repositories {
    google()
    mavenCentral()
    maven {
        url 'https://artifact.bytedance.com/repository/pangle/'
    }
}

...
dependencies {
    implementation 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-ads:21.3.0'
    implementation 'com.google.ads.mediation:pangle:4.8.0.8.0'
}
...

Manual integration

  1. Download the latest version of the Pangle SDK for Android and extract the open_ad_sdk.aar under from the downloaded archive folder and add it to your project.

  2. Navigate to the Pangle adapter artifacts on Google's Maven Repository. Select the latest version, download the Pangle adapter's .aar file, and add it to your project.

Step 4: Additional code required

No additional code is required for Pangle integration.

Step 5: Test your implementation

See the How to add Test Ad guide for detailed instructions on how to enable Pangle test ads. You can then use the Ad Inspector to verify if your implementation is correct.

That's it! You now have a working mediation integration with Pangle.

Optional Steps

Native ads

Ad rendering

The Pangle adapter returns its native ads as NativeAd objects. It populates the following fields for a NativeAd.

Field Assets always included by Pangle adapter
Headline
Image 1
Body
Icon
Call to action
Star rating
Store
Price
Advertiser

1 The Pangle adapter does not provide direct access to the main image asset for its native ads. Instead, the adapter populates the MediaView with a video or an image.

Error codes

If the adapter fails to receive an ad from Pangle, you can check the underlying error from the ad response using ResponseInfo.getAdapterResponse() under the following classes:

com.pangle.ads
com.google.ads.mediation.pangle.PangleMediationAdapter

Here are the codes and accompanying messages thrown by the Pangle adapter when an ad fails to load:

Error code Domain Reason
101 com.google.ads.mediation.pangle Invalid server parameters (e.g. Missing app ID or placement ID).
102 com.google.ads.mediation.pangle The requested ad size does not match a Pangle supported banner size.
103 com.google.ads.mediation.pangle Missing or invalid bid response.
-1-60000 com.pangle.ads Pangle SDK returned an error. See Pangle's documentation for more details.
