#1

i am testing my app , in app i put 4 admob interstitial ads and i put admob test ad unit id but some time i got real ads by admob . so my question is that - Is Appybuilder putting their ads in app ?

What ad unit ID you used for test? And why 4? Do you have 4 screens?

Maybe this is releated to that:

Probably what @Barreeeiroo mentioned is what’s happening. Other than double checking all your ads to have the same test ID, I don’t have any other ideas right now.

To cover the huge cost of Google and servers, etc, and keeping servers up and running (not to mention time/effort for maintenance/updates) as mentioned previously, we had to go this approach. Having said that, we have implemented algoritm to eliminate this for our premium users, which, btw, are lowering everyday.

Other approach or alternative is to completely turn off monetization for free users.

Also this was mentioned several times before. We can update our tos write up to clarify.

I’m sorry to learn paid user numbers are lowering. I think users should realize they should be willing to invest a little money if they want to make money.
How about taking 5% of free users and add a checkbox for paid users who wants to donate their 5% anyways?

About the original poster’s problem, now I get why he saw real ads while using test ID’s.
As a suggestion, you may detect if the user is using a test ad unit id and not show AppyBuilder ads in those cases. Is that possible?

Specifically when users use these ID’s:

@Italo will do.
Just to put in context, check the number of current front end instances:
