Standard Banner is the most basic type of ad format (for fixed-sized, non-responsive creatives) and has the following limitations, based on IAB recommendations:

  • Maximum size is 200 KB (including default image).

  • Ad has a single user interaction (click-through).

  • Creative cannot contain a video.

Note

Note: If your fixed-size creative requires capabilities beyond these limitations, build a Rich Media Banner. For more information, see About Rich Media Banner.
