Create an Application in AppLovin

1. Enter AppLovin and log in to AppLovin account.___1.jpg

2. You do not need to manually create an application in the AppLovin background. When your application has integrated the AppLovin SDK and successfully initialized the SDK, the application will automatically be displayed on the Application interface.

After you successfully integrate the SDK, you only need to initialize the OpenMediation SDK, not the AppLovin SDK separately. It is recommended to check and confirm after successfully testing AppLovin's ads.

2. In the AppLovin's platform, the ad unit is called Zone, fill in the ad unit information, and click Save after filling in.
Tips: In the AppLovin platform, Zone does not need to be associated with the application. Therefore, if you have multiple applications under your AppLovin account, please distinguish between them to avoid configuration errors.___3.jpg

  • Ad Type: Choose an ad type
  • Pricing: Set reserve price
