What is a Private Marketplace?
Private Marketplace Deals are typically “Invite Only” or Exclusive Programmatic Advertising Auctions that give the buyer priority or preferred access in the Ad Server or SSP on a Semi-Reserved basis with agreed on pricing. Deals generally consist of predetermined High Quality Inventory or specific Audience Segments. Private Marketplace Deals can be setup as Evergreen (no end date) or Campaign Flight based (ie start and stop dates).

Gourmet Ads offers 3 types of Private Marketplace Pricing options with Deals and we operate a 2nd Price Auction.
Dynamic Floor Prices (Most Popular)
Dynamic Floor Priced is our most popular option by programmatic buyers. We set a floor price and the clearing price will be a penny more than the 2nd highest bidder.
Fixed Price pricing irrespective of what you bid. Ideal for Buyers that need certainty with Programmatic Prices.
No Floor Price / Marketprice
Our No Floor Price option allows buyers to bid what they think the inventory is worth and end up paying a fair market rate for the inventory at that time, somewhat similar to what you would see buying Open Exchange. Biggest benefit is Open Exchange buying with multiple campaigns a Deal. No Floor Price is not available to all DSPs, please ask to see if your DSP is supported.
