Important Notes

  1. Each parameter added to the API string should be added with the “&” symbol.
    This symbol is used in order to differentiate one parameter from another.

  2. When using multiple categories, make sure to use the following format:
    app_category,app_category,app_category
    Categories with 2 words, for example - Arcade & Action must be encoded in
    the following format: Arcade%20%26%20Action

  3. Make sure to perform a new API call whenever you want to load an ad.
    Avoid making any client-side caching of the API response.

  4. Each campaign includes a Campaign ID and a Banner ID. If an app is
    promoted by several advertisers, Appnext API will only return the campaign
    with the highest bid, for the asked GEO.
    The Campaign ID may also change in case the advertiser chooses to A/B
    test several creative. If the Campaign ID and/or the Banner ID has changed
    from one API call to the next, make sure to replace all returned parameters
    (including image and tracking links) and serve the most recent banner.
