Smart banners are moderated based on website contents.

Depending on the type of product or service on the website, certain documents must be provided to post ads.

Required documents

For products and services that are subject to mandatory certification, registration, or licensing, be sure to submit copies of authorization documents (licenses, certificates), even if the products and services were not added to the feed.

A list of documents and other advertising information are specified in the section dedicated to the category of your products or services.

When to submit documents

You can send documents at any time after your ads have been sent for moderation. If ads are rejected because required documents are missing, they will be reviewed again after documents are submitted. If your ads pass moderation, they will be eligible for serving. If additional information is required, we will contact you.
