Client-side cookie sync up is mandatory while integrating with PubMatic APIs on the client side (user's browser). In this case, the publisher will call the PubMatic ad server directly from browser.

As the call is initiated from the user's browser, any PubMatic cookie (KADUSERCOOKIE) stored on the user's browser will be used directly by the PubMatic ad server. To perform sync up-pixeling, the publisher should call the following URL in an iframe on every page hit.

New URL to be used: http://ads.pubmatic.com/AdServer/js/user_sync.html?p=12345&s=23456

Where "p" indicates the publisher's ID and "s" indicates the site ID. However, site ID is an optional parameter.

Old URL to be deprecated: http://ads.pubmatic.com/AdServer/js/showad.js#PIX&ptask=DSP&SPug=1
