Microsoft Curate - Set default buyer eligibility, allowed payment types, and targeting access

On the Partner Center screen, the Default Settings option allows you to establish default buyer eligibility, allowed payment types, and targeting access for all buyers. It is possible to override these settings for individual buyers.

For details, see Edit Buyer Eligibility, Allowed Payment Types, and Targeting Access.

Getting there

Publisher clients: select Marketplace > Partner Center.

All other clients: select Partners > Partner Center.

Step 1: Get started

From the Partner Center, click the Default Settings button to display the Default Settings dialog.

Step 2: Update your default settings

Set the default buyer eligibility

This setting is similar to banning or trusting members using ad quality settings. If you ban a buyer in either your ad quality settings or in Partner Center, that member will be banned. A member does not need to be banned in both places.

For more information on the different options described in this section, see the Setting default buyer eligibility section within Setting Buyer Defaults.

Set the default allowed payment types

These are the type(s) of payment you accept from partners whose eligibility is set to eligible. CPM is selected by default for all eligible buyers and cannot be unchecked since it is the standard payment type for third-party inventory.

You can also opt into allowing members to pay for inventory on a CPC or CPA basis. If you allow CPC and CPA payment, you must also set up your publishers to accept CPC and CPA payment types.

Set the default targeting access

This indicates the information each member receives when targeting your inventory. Members cannot report on this information; it is only used for targeting. The more information you give buyers, the more easily they can target your inventory.

For more information on the different targeting access options, see the Setting default targeting access section within Setting Buyer Defaults.

For Categories (Custom) there is the additional option to expose specific categories. To select specific custom categories, choose Select beneath the Category (Custom) option to display the list of categories. Click on a category in the Available Items area to add it to the Selected Items area. To remove a category from the Selected Items area, click the X next to the category name. When you have finished selecting custom categories, click Add to save your changes.

Step 3: Save your settings

Click the Save button to record updates to your settings.
