Acquiring a DFP account is simple.  The only requirement is that you have a Google Adsense account.  First, log into your Adsense account. Then in another tab in your browser navigate to DFP’s main page.

Before you can continue, you must first verify your account.  Please follow the instructions that are given. Next, you’re going to select your display language, country, time zone, and currency. After that, you’ll need to accept the terms and local settings.

Once you’ve chosen these settings you can no longer change them, so we advise you put a bit of thought into them.  Again, you cannot change your country, region, time zone, or currency once is chosen.

Many of the other settings, such as receiving periodic alerts and notifications, can be changed.  Now that you’re set up with your account you can create ad units, orders, and line items.  We’ll be covering all these procedures and more in our future videos.
