Who is impacted?
All publishers on HeyZap SDK versions 9.0.5 to 9.56.
What is happening?
Fyber will be sunsetting the HeyZap Mediation platform.
March 9 2020.
What does “sunset” mean?
This means that no ads will be served, from any Fyber-owned demand source or any mediated ad networks.
After sunset, will the app function as normal but just not serve ads?
Will HeyZap stop serving ads exactly on March 9?
March 8 is the final date of service, and sunset starts on March 9. The tech work takes several weeks to complete, so it is possible that some ads will be served in the days / week after the final date of service.
What are my options after HeyZap is shutdown?
Apply to Fyber FairBid for all your new apps and your existing apps which are still active.
How do I apply to Fyber FairBid?
Apply to Fyber FairBid if you have at least 25K DAU across all of your apps. For developers with unreleased apps, feel free to apply if you plan to reach 25K DAU this year. Fyber will then review the application and notify you through the email address used in the application.
Why hasn’t my application for Fyber FairBid been approved?
To ensure that each and every publisher has a smooth and seamless transition to Fyber FairBid, we are dedicating a significant amount of resources to the onboarding process and need to cap the number of publishers we transition at any one period of time.
When will I be paid?
Until March 9 2020, your apps will still receive ads from mediated ad networks. They will continue to pay you according to their payment terms. Please note that Fyber is not responsible for paying you for revenue generated from the mediated ad networks you work with.
Your payment from Fyber’s own two demand sources (HeyZap Ad Network and Fyber Marketplace) is already in process, as long as it is above the bank fee threshold of $50. There is no action you need to take to claim payment. The payment process is unaffected by the shutdown of the HeyZap SDK.
Fyber FairBid is built on the knowledge and assets we’ve acquired by helping developers monetize their apps for the past 10 years. Please visit our developers page for more detailed documentation on iOS and Android integrations.
