Bidder Timeout is Less than GAM Timeout. Follow These Steps To Fix It.

If the bidder timeout doesn’t match that of GAM, some bids can go to waste. Header Bidding is closed even if DFP is still open to accept bids.

This is an issue particularly those prior to 0.20.5 version.

Step 1: Upgrade to the latest stable HB version

Step 2: Run PubGuru Ad Inspector (PGAI) and see if you’re still getting the error

Step 3: If for any reason you need to stick to the current version you’re running and you keep getting this error, you can try modifying the GAM timeout manually on page by deploying this:

OFF-page (right before the header script):

<script> window.M2_TIMEOUT = 2000; </script>

**Set the number of milliseconds to match the bidder timeout

ON-page:

script code

**Set the number of milliseconds to match the bidder timeout
