The Trade Desk provides a self-service platform that enables ad buyers to manage data-driven digital advertising campaigns across various advertising formats, including display, video, and social, across devices.
In order to forward an mParticle audience to The Trade Desk you will need to work with your The Trade Desk Account Manager to get the Configuration Settings. Your Advertiser ID is available from The Trade Desk dashboard and your Account Manager can provide you with your Advertiser Secret Key.
When forwarding audiences to The Trade Desk, mParticle sets a name based on the External Audience Name. To be accepted by The Trade Desk, your External Audience Name must be under 50 characters and must not contain any of the following characters:
mParticle doesn’t delete the downstream audience when you delete an audience in mParticle.
When forwarding audience data to The Trade Desk, mParticle checks the user’s profile for any of the following:
As per The Trade Desk’s recommendation, each matching identity for a user will result in one distinct item in the outgoing request. NOTE: If both IDFA and GAID are available, only IDFA will be sent.
To determine which identity type to map to the uid2 value for outgoing payloads, a drop-down is available as a configuration setting.
The Trade Desk Audience Integration uses Bulk Forwarding. Bulk Forwarding means that, instead of uploading updates to an audience in real time, mParticle compiles updates into a queue until either a given amount of time has passed since the last upload, or until a certain number of updates are waiting to be sent.
By default, mParticle uploads to The Trade Desk whenever at least one of the following conditions is met:
Upload frequency can sometimes be adjusted. Reach out to your mParticle Customer Success Manager if you need to discuss upload frequency.
