Step 3: Creating Placement Ids

Step 4: Filling out the Payout Information

Create, verify, and activate your payment profile to make your earning tangible. InMobi follows a payout cycle of 60 days. This means that your earnings for a given month will be credited to you at the end of the 60-day payout cycle. You have the option of receiving your payouts via PayPal or wire transfer/RTGS.

Step 5: Controlling the Ad Experience with Filters

You can curate the experience shown to the user by controlling the content of the ads. InMobi supports ad filters at three levels to control the ad experience:

  • Domain Filters:

    Block ads from a specific domain. For instance, if you want to block ads from InMobi, add the domain ''. If you want to block all domains of InMobi like,, then add 'inmobi'.

  • Category Filters:

    Prevent ads based on content. If you block a category, ads of that category will not be served on your site or app. For instance, an app meant for kids might want to prevent ads categorized as 'Politics' or 'Gambling'.

  • URL or Keywords Filters:

    Avoid ads based on matching phrases contained in the ad text or landing page URL. For instance, you can prevent ads containing the text 'weapons' or 'virus' from serving on your site or app.
