To sell your Data Marketplace segments, download a Data Marketplace segment metadata file via Connect, update the file, and then upload it back to Connect.

Note

  • Before downloading the segment metadata file, make sure that any recently-uploaded segments have been completely ingested by checking their ingestion status on the Files page (for more info, see "Check the Status of an Uploaded File").

  • If you only need to provide info on a small number of segments, you can update the info for each segment individually. However, only some types of information can be added individually (for example, you can't block an advertiser from accessing the segment in the Data Marketplace with this method). See "Enable an Individual Segment" for more information.

Caution

Once one of your Data Marketplace segments has been distributed to another destination platform (either by you or by a data buyer), the "Has Been Distributed" column (column R) will have a value of "Y." Other than for the Programmatic Hybrid pricing fields used by The Trade Desk, do not use a segment metadata file to edit the segment pricing for segments that have been distributed. If you attempt to edit the segment pricing, those changes will not be implemented in any downstream platforms and any pricing changes will be ignored during file upload.
