Vertical Video

Vertical Video > Description

The vertical video ad type is due to the coverage of large content areas highly attention-grabbing and very well suited for extensive campaigns in combination of a mobile banner package.

The user has to interact with the advertisement first in order to trigger the play of the vertical video or it starts automatically without sound if device supports it. Just like an interstitial, it covers itself a majority of the content area on the screen. A close button will be automatically added in the upper right corner.

The user can interact with the ad and reach the landing page.

Only with additional signed GDPR agreement

  • External trackings
  • External resources (CDN) like JQUERY, Google Fonts, etc.

Self hosted ads

Be aware that some of our publishers still do not allow self hosted ads, external trackings or the use of external resources even with an additional agreement. In this case only physical delivery or hosting from our side is allowed.

Physical delivery or hosted on our infrastructure

  • as a flat-ZIP file (without folder structure)
  • the ZIP file must contain (max. 10 files)

    • index.html
    • all resources (CSS, Javascript, images, videos, etc.)
    • all used Fonts, Frameworks, etc.
  • the total size of the ad should not exceed the total limit



Inside of your ad you have to read the clickTag from the querystring IAB Guidelines (see Section 3.10.1).

Below you can see the function from the IAB for getting the clickTag from the querystring.

function getParameterByName(name) {
    var match = RegExp('[?&]' + name + '=([^&]*)').exec(;
    return match && decodeURIComponent(match[1].replace(/\+/g, ' '));
var clickTag = getParameterByName('clickTag');

clickTag naming convention

clickTag should be always in camel case notation.
