I am using a prefix with the custom format and would like the codes to be generated automatically moving forward. How do I change that?


Once codes are created under a prefix, the format cannot be changed.  You will need to continue with the custom format using the existing prefix or license a new prefix and set it up with an automated format.

Do I need to purchase a prefix for every new spot I need to code?


No, a prefix is licensed to a company and codes created for that company can use the same prefix. You would only need to purchase an Ad-ID code for a new spot, but not a prefix.

How do I find out if a company already has a licensed prefix?


You can download the Ad-ID prefix list here. The list provides all prefixes activated on Ad-ID as of the date of publication. You can also contact customer service who can search for a company and determine if they have a licensed prefix. Customer service will have access to the most up-to-date information regarding prefixes.
