Each deal or pricing control floor you create must be associated with a package or a custom selection to specify targeted inventory that buyers are looking for.
An advantage of creating a package is that the grouped inventory can be reused for different deals or pricing controls without having to be defined again. You can also clone an existing package, making it easier to create packages with variations. For details about the targeting dimensions you can apply to packages, see Targeting.
You can also include a logo, a description, and domain to help quickly identify a package of targeting criteria from the list of packages.

You can create a package in any of the following ways:
- By going to Inventory > Packages.
- When creating or editing a deal. See also best practice guidelines for creating packages for PMP.
- When creating or editing a floor.
To create a package:
On the displayed deal, floor, or View Packages page, click Create a new package. The Create Package page is displayed.
Make sure the on behalf of account next to the page title is the correct one. If not, click the edit icon and select the correct account. If you have a network account and create a package at the network level, users who do not have network-level access will not be able to access the package.
In the Package Details section, enter a descriptive, unique name that would help you identify the package when selecting it for a deal or a floor as the supply criteria. If needed, provide any additional information for the package.
In the Merchandising Details section, enter optional package information, such as the logo URL. If you plan to make private marketplace rates discoverable, enter the appropriate domains or app names associated with the package and their sample URLs.
To change the default targeting settings from All to target specific inventory, geographic locations, or other dimensions, in the Targeting section, click Add Targeting Dimensions and specify the targeting details as needed.
In the Private Marketplace Package Rates section, make the package discoverable to all or selected buyers and provide package rate information for PMP deals, as needed.
If you set the Discoverable to all buyers to Yes or select a specific Demand Partner, you need to enter the Domains or App names associated with the package in the Merchandising Details section.
Click Create Package.
You can now use this package in Private Marketplace deals or pricing controls.
