DoubleVerify has announced new measurement tools for retail media networks. They are currently being used by the company’s new partner Best Buy Ads and the ad networks for Amazon, Walmart, Target, Macy’s and Kroger’s.
Advertisers using these retail media networks will have access to third-party measurement tools provided by DoubleVerify. Additionally, as part of the partnership with Best Buy, DoubleVerify provides these tools for Best Buy’s use in their own brand campaigns.

These measurement tools are another sign that retail media networks are evolving with technology to meet the needs of advertisers who look to gain from the deep knowledge that retailers have of their loyal customers.
Third-party measurement. The tools let advertisers know if the ads were viewable and actually seen by users, and also if the ads were served in a brand-safe and fraud-safe environments.
The tools integrated in the Best Buy Ads network include pre-campaign activation for brand suitability and fraud, as well as post-bid filtering and measurement. Best Buy will also implement DoubleVerify’s Publisher Suite, which provides the retailer protection and control over touchpoints across its media network.
