The Trade Desk: Export Audiences

Export your Lytics audiences to The Trade Desk for use in your advertising campaigns.

Integration Details

This integration utilizes The Trade Desk API to send Lytics audiences. Once initiated, the job will proceed as follows.

  1. Run a one-time backfill (if configured to do so).
  2. Receive real-time updates when a user enters or exits the selected audience(s).
  3. For each export (whether the user is being added as part of the backfill or they are entering/ exiting the audience in real-time), it will send that user information to the specific Advertiser whose information is provided during the configuration.


Follow these steps to set up and configure an audience export to The Trade Desk from Lytics. If you are new to creating jobs in Lytics, see the Jobs Dashboard documentation for more information.
