To connect your own Unity Ads account to Appodeal, follow these simple steps.
Step 1: Set up a Unity Ads account
a) Create a Unity account using this link. If you already have a Unity account, skip this step.
b) Confirm your account via email.
c) Go to the Unity dashboard and accept the Terms of Service Agreement.

- ‘rewardedVideo’ is a rewarded Placement that serves Video ad and Playable ad formats, but does not allow skipping.
d) Click on the placement name to change its settings
Note: There are no pricefloors for any Unity placement by default. If you want to set it up like with Appodeal account, you have to request a pricefloors from unity manager.

b) Select Ad Data Export on the left navigation bar to expand its options, then select API Access
c) Click on Create API Key link at Monetization API Access field and copy API Key.

с) Add email for Unity account, API Key and Organization ID.
d) Click on the "Create" button.
Step 6: Link your Unity app with Appodeal
Go to Projects -> Placements and click on Game ID to copy.
Go to Line Items in the app's settings, select the ad type, and choose your Unity account and fill Unity Game ID.
Go to the Placement’s settings on Unity and copy Placement ID
And add a line item on Appodeal. Go to Line Items in the app's settings, select the ad type, and press “Add Line Item” button.
Add Line Item label, Countries, eCPM and add it to default or all configurations, fill Code.
Code is a Unity Placement Reference ID. Don't forget to save the changes.
