Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I join Prebid?
To join Prebid, please visit our Membership page to read more about the benefits of membership and to see the various membership categories, tiers and pricing. Please also review Prebid’s code of conduct, which all members are expected to follow. Once you have made the decision to join, please complete and sign an online application form here. On the form, you will need to indicate the membership category and revenue tier to which you are applying. Revenue numbers are self-reported, and based on your company’s total annual global revenue. If you are applying to the Fellowship tier, please complete an application here. Within two months of applying, someone from the Prebid team will follow-up with you directly.
What are the membership fees?
The membership fees vary by membership category and revenue tier. You can see the full pricing details here. For revenue, we rely on applicants to use the honor system when self-reporting their company’s total annual global revenue. Any company found to be reporting false numbers will have the option of re-joining at the correct revenue tier, or having their membership revoked.
What is the Fellowship tier? How do I apply?
The Fellowship Tier is a new membership level, which waives member fees for one calendar year in exchange for a commitment of resources to support various Prebid initiatives. To join at the Fellowship level requires submitting a specific application, which can be found here. All accepted Fellows will meet quarterly with the Prebid.org management team to ensure satisfactory participation levels are being met to maintain your Fellowship status. At the end of 2023, it is expected that all Fellows will transition to being paid members at the appropriate tier to make room for a new class of Fellows to join Prebid. Any company not accepted into the Fellowship program will need to join at a full membership level, or re-apply for the Fellowship program the following calendar year.
