  • cordova plugin add

To use in Phonegap Build, place the following tag in your config.xml file:

<gap:plugin name="phonegap-admob" source="npm"/>

To start showing ads, place the following code in your onDeviceReady callback. Replace corresponding id’s with yours:

Note: ensure you have a proper AdMob and tappx accounts and get your publisher id’s.

function onDeviceReady() {

      document.removeEventListener('deviceready', onDeviceReady, false);


      // Set AdMobAds options:


        publisherId:           "ca-app-pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/BBBBBBBBBB",  // Required

        interstitialAdId:      "ca-app-pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/IIIIIIIIII",  // Optional

        autoShowBanner:        true,                                      // Optional

        autoShowRInterstitial: false,                                     // Optional

        autoShowRewarded:      false,                                     // Optional

        tappxIdiOS:            "/XXXXXXXXX/Pub-XXXX-iOS-IIII",            // Optional

        tappxIdAndroid:        "/XXXXXXXXX/Pub-XXXX-Android-AAAA",        // Optional

        tappxShare:            0.5                                        // Optional



      // Start showing banners (atomatic when autoShowBanner is set to true)



      // Request interstitial ad (will present automatically when autoShowInterstitial is set to true)



      // Request rewarded ad (will present automatically when autoShowRewarded is set to true)




    document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);

If you don’t specify tappxId, no tappx requests will be placed (even if you specify a tappxShare). See Tappx configuration for more detailed info.

⚠️ Be sure to start ads on “deviceready” event otherwise, the plugin would not work.
