Epom Ad Server allows running VAST/VPAID advertising tags from third-party networks.

Follow these steps:

  1. Check the Video Tag provided by third-party network. If it contains placeholders, replace them with the $$CUSTOM_PARAM(<parameter_name>)$$ macros.
  2. For example, if the provided URL is:

    https://epom.com/?description=REPLACE&&id=REPLACE

    ... the REPLACE values should be substituted in the following way:

    https://epom.com/?description=$$CUSTOM_PARAM(customdescription)$$&id=$$CUSTOM_PARAM(customID)$$
  3. Login to your Epom Ad Server network account.
  4. Go to the Advertisers tab and create a new Advertiser > Campaign > Banner for Video Placement:
    • Banner Type: Select Third Party VAST/VPAID Tag URL.
    • URL: Insert the URL you've prepared previously.
  5. Go to the Publishers tab and create a new Site > Zone > Video Placement.
  6. Add the Custom Parameters to the VAST tag in the following way:
  7. cp.<parameter_name>=<value>

    For the previous example, the following should be added to the VAST tag:

    &cp.customdescription=business&cp.customID=812

    As a result, the completed VAST tag would be:

    http://n1adserv.com/vast.xml?key=a1b1e839e8c2080da30bbacdd1ef11c5&no_imp_overlay=true
    &cp.customdescription=business&cp.customID=812
