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.

Android

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.

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.

Associate this mediation group with your existing AdMob ad unit. Then click Done. You should now see the ad units card populated with the ad units you selected.

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.

iOS

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.

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.

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

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

Download the latest version of Google Mobile Ads mediation plugin for Pangle from the download link in the Changelog and extract the GoogleMobileAdsPangleMediation.unitypackage from the zip file.

In your Unity project editor, select Assets > Import Package > Custom Package and find the GoogleMobileAdsPangleMediation.unitypackage file you downloaded. Make sure that all the files are selected and click Import.

Then, select Assets > Play Services Resolver > Android Resolver > Force Resolve. The Unity Play Services Resolver library will perform dependency resolution from scratch and copy the declared dependencies into the Assets/Plugins/Android directory of your Unity app.

Step 4: Additional code required

Android

No additional code required for Pangle integration.

iOS

SKAdNetwork integration

Pangle asks that you add the following SKAdNetwork identifiers to your project's Info.plist file:

<array>
    <dict>
        <key>SKAdNetworkIdentifier</key>
        <string>238da6jt44.skadnetwork</string>
    </dict>
    <dict>
        <key>SKAdNetworkIdentifier</key>
        <string>22mmun2rn5.skadnetwork</string>
    </dict>
</array>

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.
