Integration Guide v7.1.0


Thank you for choosing Pokkt SDKfor Cocos2d-3x. This document contains all the information required to set up the SDK with your project. We also support mediation for various third party networks. To know the supported third party networks and their integration process go to mediation section.

Before implementing plugins it is mandatory to go through project configuration and implementation steps , as these sections contain mandatory steps for basic SDK integration and are followed by every plugin.

You can download our SDK from

ScreenName: This one parameter is accepted by almost all API’s of Pokkt SDK. This controls the placement of ads and can be created on Pokkt Dashboard.

We will be referencing PokktAds Demo app provided with SDK during the course of explanation in this document. We suggest you go through the sample app for better understanding.

Implementation Steps

SDK Configuration

  1. Set Application Idand Security keyin Pokkt SDK. You can get it from Pokkt dashboard from your account. These are unique per app registered.

    PCPokktAds::setPokktConfig("<Pokkt Application ID>", "<Pokkt Security Key>");
  2. If you are using server to server integration with Pokkt, you can also set Third Party UserIdin PokktAds.

    PCPokktAds::setThirdPartyUserId("<Third party user Id>");
  3. When your application is under development and if you want to see Pokkt logs and other informatory messages, you can enable it by setting shouldDebugto true . Make sure to disable debugging before release.


Ad Types

  • Video ad can be rewarded or non-rewarded. You can either cache the ad in advance or directly call show for it.
  • We suggest you to cache the ad in advance so as to give seamless play behaviour, In other case it will stream the video which may lead to unnecessary buffering delays depending on the network connection.
  1. To cache rewarded ad call:

  2. To show rewarded ad call:

  3. To cache non-rewarded ad call:

  4. To show non-rewarded ad call:

  5. You can check if ad is cached or not using

    PCPokktAds::isVideoAdCached(“screen_name”, isRewarded);


  1. To cache rewarded ad call:

  2. To show rewarded ad call:

  3. To cache non-rewarded ad call:

  4. To show non-rewarded ad call:

  5. You can check if ad is cached or not using

    PCPokktAds::isInterstitialCached(“screen_name”, isRewarded);

There are two ways to load banners:

  1. Load banner

    PCPokktAds::loadBanner(<screenName>”, <BannerPosition>);

    There are predefined positions for banner positioning inside BannerPosition ( Com. Pokkt.Plugin.Common.BannerPosition ).

    • TOP_LEFT.
    • TOP_RIGHT.
  2. Load banner with rect

    PCPokktAds::initWithBannerAdSize(<ScreenName>, <Height>,<Width>,<x>,<y>);

   android:windowSoftInputMode="stateAlwaysHidden|adjustUnspecified" />

You can change the android:screenOrientation="landscape"to of your choice, the way you want to display the ads.

Service Declaration

Add the following service in your AndroidManifest for receiving InApp notifications. How to set up InApp notifications.

   android:label="PokktNotificationService" />


In the package downloaded above you will find:


  • Extract the file and put the content inside your C++ project, preferably directly inside the Classes folder.
  • Extract the and add its content to your project. And add the PokktSDK.framework. Just to make sure, go to your project’s settings "Build Phases -> Link Binary with Libraries". If PokktSDK.framework is not present then make an entry there and you are good to go.
  • Ensure that "-ObjC" flag is set inside project setting’s “Build Settings -> Other Linker Flags”.

In order to use PokktSDK’s background fetch functionality, enable "Capabilities -> Background Modes -> Background Fetch" inside project settings. Then write the following code-snippet inside

"didFinishLaunchingWithOptions" method of app-delegate class:

[application setMinimumBackgroundFetchInterval:

Further, implement/update the background-fetch delegate methods in app-delegate class. Invoke

"callBackgroundTaskCompletionHandler" method from "performFetchWithCompletionHandler". Observe the following code-snippet for reference:

-(void)application:(UIApplication *) application
     [PokktAds callBackgroundTaskCompletedHandler:
        ^(UIBackgroundFetchResult result)

In order to enable local notifications for InApp Notifications , mention the following inside

"didFinishLaunchingWithOptions" method of the app-delegate class:

[application setMinimumBackgroundFetchInterval:
   UIUserNotificationSettings *settings =
   [UIUserNotificationSettings settingsForTypes:
       (UIRemoteNotificationTypeBadge | UIRemoteNotificationTypeSound | UIRemoteNotificationTypeAlert)
[application registerUserNotificationSettings:settings];

Invoke "inAppNotificationEvent" if the user taps on local notification, do this in the "didReceiveLocalNotification" inside app-delegate class. Check the following reference:

-(void)application:(UIApplication*) application
   didReceiveLocalNotification:(UILocalNotification*) notification
      [PokktAds inAppNotificationEvent:notification];
