The new integration provides advertisers on The Trade Desk with access to custom audience segments based on retail purchase data via Moneris Solutions Corporation (‘Moneris’), a leading provider of unified payment solutions in Canada. Access to programmatic-buying platform with custom audience segments, based on data from more than 325,000 merchant locations across Canada, is a first for media buyers.

With 27 million consented devices and identities corresponding to over 850,000 6-digit postal codes, Connected Interactive provides advertisers with the audience data they are looking for to reach consumers efficiently.

“With hundreds of different categories covering purchase behavior amongst Canadian consumers, this is the most comprehensive set of audiences available for retail behavior in Canada and has been anticipated for some time. Now having them available in The Trade Desk makes them even more widely accessible to the top digital marketers and brands,”, noted founder and president Lyle Wagner.

The ability to reach consumers, using purchase-based signals is huge to our clients in the Canadian market,” said Jay Goebel, General Manager, Data Partnerships, The Trade Desk. “This partnership highlights the power of data and performance to activate media campaigns that are measurable across the open internet.”
