DoubleVerify Unveils New Partnership To Authenticate Instacart Ads

Brands will benefit from DV’s industry-leading viewability and fraud verification across Instacart Ads

NEW YORK – October 12, 2023 DoubleVerify (“DV”) (NYSE: DV), a leading software platform for digital media measurement, data and analytics, today announced a partnership with Instacart (NASDAQ: CART), the leading grocery technology company in North America, to enable media verification and maximize advertiser performance across the platform. The partnership will leverage DV’s technology and data to verify that Instacart video and display ads are viewable by a human being and are safe from Fraud/Invalid Traffic (“IVT”).

Instacart is the leading grocery technology company in North America and works with grocers and retailers to transform how people shop. As a retail enablement platform, they partner with more than 1,400 retail banners to deliver from more than 80,000 stores. With Instacart Ads, they’re bringing the best of online advertising to help CPG brands of all sizes move products off shelves. 

“We are excited to extend DV’s independent measurement on the Instacart Ads platform to ensure that campaigns meet key media quality criteria while maximizing performance for advertisers,” said Mark Zagorski, CEO, DoubleVerify. “Instacart has been a pioneer in online grocery shopping for over a decade, and this partnership exemplifies the leadership, innovation and trust that both companies have built.”

With DV’s quality measurement technology, Instacart advertisers will benefit from:

  • Fraud Protection: For advertising to perform, it must be seen by real people. DV identifies and protects advertisers from fraud and IVT – ranging from hijacked devices to bot manipulation.
  • Viewability Verification: DV provides comprehensive viewability verification, identifying whether an ad has the opportunity to be seen and shedding light on its impact.

“We’re thrilled to partner with DoubleVerify to provide valuable viewability and IVT authentication to our mutual advertising clients,” said Tim Castelli, Vice President of Global Advertising Sales at Instacart. “As we continue to scale our advertising solutions, we are committed to delivering measurable value and growth for our brand partners.” 

DV and Instacart will be working on the technical integration for viewability and IVT verification solutions over the coming months.
