Setting seller defaults


Inventory trust settings only apply to standard line item targeting.

You can establish inventory trust settings for all sellers. Click Default Settings to open the Default Settings dialog (see Set Seller Defaults for step-by-step instructions). You can also override these settings for individual sellers (see Edit Seller Defaults for details).

Setting default inventory trust

You can define which portion of an eligible seller's inventory you trust. There are three trust levels (they are listed here from least trusted to most trusted):

  • Platform-reviewed: Indicates that you trust only the inventory that has been audited by the Microsoft Advertising platform. The Microsoft Advertising domain-level platform-review consists of categories, sensitive attributes, and intended audience. This is the lowest level of trust and offers the fewest options (domains) in which to serve impressions, but provides the highest level of assurance that ads will not be served on questionable sites.
  • Seller-reviewed: This indicates that, in addition to all platform-reviewed inventory (above), you also trust inventory audited by the seller. This expands the number of domains on which an ad can serve, but requires confidence in the review process and standards of the seller.
  • All: This indicates that you are comfortable serving ads on any domain sent to you by this supply partner. This allows access to all domains, but expands the possibility that an ad will be served on a questionable or inappropriate site. This setting should only be used for partners with a long history of exemplary activity.
