Prerequisites for web banners

To work with web banners, first, they need to be set by the Meiro team:

1. Meiro Events must be implemented.

2. Meiro Events API connection must be set in the Administration/ Settings tab.

3. Web banners tabs must be enabled by the administrator for your user role.

4. For embedded web banners it is required to place a DOM element with a unique ID in the HTML code of the website where the banner will be displayed.

To use segments with web banners, there are additional requirements:

1. The relevant segment must be created in the Segments tab.

2. The Meiro User ID attribute must be added to WBS - Please contact the Meiro team to set this up.

1.1. Select condition: “Segment”

1.2. Select the segment of your choice you wish to display a web banner to.

1.3. Select “Identifier attribute” which is an attribute used for profile stitching that helps to identify the user.

1.4. Select operator “is in segment / is not in segment”.

1.5. Select “Identifier location” (cookie / local storage) and insert a “key”.

Those values are 1PT Meiro Web IDs tracked from the client website where Meiro SDK is deployed.

Usually, it is a cookie, key:  meiro_user_id

Key can be found in the Developers tools -> Application -> Cookie/ Local storage -> Key

Warning: Setup for identifier attribute/ location and key can be custom to your use case, therefore please contact the Meiro team.

2. How to test a web banner for a segmented audience

To test whether the banner displays correctly to the segmented audience it is necessary to set the meiro_id of the customer belonging to the segment.

Warning: We strongly advise using only the fresh anonymous windows for testing different cookies! 


2.1 Open the segment you are displaying the web banner to.

2.2 Open a single customer view of someone from this segment.
