LONDON, September 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Merchenta announces the launch of Version 3 of merchenta.io programmatic media buying APIs. Powerful, yet easily-integrated, merchenta.io provides a jump-start for application developers and agencies with an always-on, cloud-hosted, open-API platform. merchenta.io simplifies media buying across almost 30 real-time exchanges for desktop, mobile and Facebook, enabling rapid access to a wide range of capabilities including retargeting, contextual, geo-targeting and device targeting.
merchenta.io combines a range of sophisticated, out-of-the-box algorithms for performance and brand marketing with on-demand access to billions of advertising placements worldwide across desktop, mobile and Facebook. Delivered on a fully-supported, software-as-a-service basis (SAAS), there are no hardware costs or complex infrastructures to maintain.

- accelerated time-to-market for programmatic, media-buying applications
- access to almost 30 pre-integrated exchanges including Google Doubleclick, AppNexus, Rubicon Project, OpenX and many others
- simple, easy-to-integrate APIs covering campaign setup, optimisation and reporting
- configurable bidding, creative optimisation and recommendation algorithms
