Underdog Media is a dynamic ad monetization network that prioritizes offering its publisher partners highly visible ad units. The EDGE unit, a hybrid slider that can offer both video and conventional display ads, is the flagship item for UDM.
According to Underdog Media, their units are 100% visible, which appeals greatly to their programmatic advertising clients. This results in higher CPMs and fills rates when employing a media unit that isn't as popular. They have special technology that allows them to prevent their ads from running if they are blocking out another ad, so they respect all of your available advertising space.
Only one EDGE ad block will populate at a time to ensure the best user experience. UDM will conduct an internal auction to identify the highest CPM offer among all direct advertiser relationships, demand partners, and IAB ad sizes using programmatic methods.
Underdog Media operates on a net 30-day payment cycle; that is, the publishers get paid 30 days after the end of the that month, provided that the publisher exceeds the minimum payout threshold of USD 50.
