Prebid Server

InMobi is a real-time bidder on Prebid Server, an open-source, server-side in-app header bidding solution from Prebid. This guide explains how you can display ads from InMobi for your inventory being monetized on Prebid Server.

Since Prebid Server is open-source, publishers can either build their own customized solution or can use readymade managed solutions in the form of wrappers/SDKs built to support in-app header bidding on Prebid. InMobi supports managed Prebid solutions like PubMatic OpenWrap and Xandr's Prebid Server Premium (PSP).


Ensure the following before you get started with this integration:

  • You need to have an account on Prebid.
  • SDK integration is not required. The adapter code and necessary integration guidelines are available on Prebid's official documentation.
  • Sign a contract with InMobi.
  • Ad Formats Supported: Banner, Interstitial, Video (any format), Native.


Ad rendering, otherwise handled by InMobi SDK, will be taken care of by the publisher.

Step 1: Set up your InMobi Account: For more information on how to set up your InMobi account, see Create InMobi Account.

Step 2: Add Apps and Placements on InMobi Publisher Dashboard: If you are adding apps and placements for the very first time, see Add Your App or Website.

If your apps have been added and you would like to create new placements specifically for Advanced Bidding, follow the instructions below:

Add InMobi on Prebid Dashboard
