bm_pf

eCPM of BidMachine ad source

double

1.00

bm_pf_compare

rule of how to compare ad source eCPM with the price of ad response.

If equal_or_above_pf - SDK will fill the ad if ad source price is equal or below the price of current ad.
Example: BM SDK responds with ad with price 5.34$
AdMob sent ad sources with eCPMs of 6.00$, 5.00$, 4.00$
6.00$ Ad source - No fill
5.00$ Ad source - Fill

If equal_pf - SDK will fill the ad if ad source price is equal the price of current ad.
Example: BM SDK responds with ad with price 5.34$
AdMob sent ad sources with eCPMs of 6.00$, 5.00$, 4.00$
6.00$ Ad source - No fill
5.00$ Ad source - No fill
4.00$ Ad source - No fill
SDK will fill the ad only if AdMob has 5.34$ ad source

string
values: equal_or_above_pf, equal_pf

❗️

IMPORTANT

In parameters in "bm_pf" field - specify exactly the same price as you used for creating ad source

When you are finished with filling all needed info - click Done

Step 3. Finalising setup

You can create several ad sources within same mediation group. Once you are done with creating them - you should see final waterfall with your networks and newly created BidMachine ad sources.

If you want to change prices of created ad sources - you should not only change eCPM of it but also change "bm_pf" value in parameters of it.

🚧

Having several BidMachine custom events will not affect latency in terms of filling the ads because BM SDK will return result instantly as the ad will be fetched prior calling waterfall ad networks
