*Pricing for the usage of each of the different products can be found within the platform. The CPM is marked clearly alongside the segments when choosing them for targeting.*

Pricing when using multiple DoubleVerify Segments

You may target as many segments within a Product Set (e.g. combining a Video Viewability segment with a Player Size segment) without incurring additional costs - you will only pay the CPM fee associated with that Product Set.

When targeting across Product Sets (e.g. combining Display Viewability with Contextual), you will pay the sum of all the Product Set rates (e.g. Display Viewability CPM fee + Contextual CPM fee).

DoubleVerify Custom Contextual Custom Segments

If you are already a customer of DoubleVerify, you are able to create Custom Contextual segments via the DoubleVerify UI, push these into your Beeswax instance and target them as custom segments.

  • If this is the first time you would like to target a DoubleVerify Custom Contextual segment, please reach out to Beeswax Support or your Account Manager so we can enable this for your account.
  • Once this is enabled, you can create your custom segment in the DoubleVerify UI. If you do not already have access to DoubleVerify or need assistance, you can email
  • When creating a new custom segment in the DoubleVerify UI, ensure that Beeswax is selected from the "Buying Platform Activation" list otherwise the segment will be ineligible for use with Beeswax for targeting.
  • Once you have created the custom segment, please reach out to Beeswax Support at so we can map the segment. Please provide the custom DoubleVerify ID (this should be a 8-digit integer starting with '52').
  • We will confirm once we have mapped the DoubleVerify segment in the Beeswax platform. Once confirmed, you can find the segment available in your Buzz instance in the 'Segments' tab of line item targeting.
