Introducing Supersonic, our latest monetization plugin
Corona Labs is committed to providing you with many options to make your apps financially successful. The latest addition to our suite of monetization options is popular ad provider Supersonic. Supersonic helps you generate revenue with high fill rates and eCPMs, and provides methods to encourage your users to engage with high-definition videos from top advertising brands.
“We’re excited to partner with Corona Labs to significantly boost ad monetization for its developer community. This partnership will give Corona developers the ability to manage and optimize multiple ad networks, maximizing eCPMs and fill rates by creating an inventory marketplace in which advertisers compete,” says Gil Shoham, CRO and Co-Founder of ironSource, Supersonic’s parent company. “Developers who integrate our plugin can deploy high-definition rewarded video, interstitial, and offer wall ad units seamlessly, benefiting from our global demand without another SDK integration.”
To get started with Supersonic, you will need to create an account and log in to their dashboard to set up your apps. You will need to provide a URL for an app in the Apple App Store or on Google Play, or you can give them a temporary name for an app that isn’t live.
Just like with other ad providers, you will need to add the plugin to your
require() the plugin. For details on this and other Corona-side requirements, please see our Supersonic plugin documentation.
Supported ad types
The initial plugin supports offer walls, interstitial ads, and rewarded videos:
- An offer wall presents the user with a list of actions they can take to earn a reward, such as credits or extra lives. These actions include taking surveys, installing different apps, etc.
- Interstitial ads include both static and non-rewarded video ads. Supersonic’s servers determine if an interstitial will be static or video based on their analytic patterns.
- Rewarded videos allow you to give in-game currency to your users get when they view a video. You control the reward, whether it be coins, gems, credits, or some other item that works in your app.
Note that this plugin does not currently support the Supersonic mediation service.
