A supply-side platform or sell-side platform (SSP) is a technology platform with the single mission of enabling publishers to manage their advertising impression inventory and maximize revenue from digital media. As such, they offer an efficient, automated and secure way to tap into the different sources of advertising income that are available, and provide insight into the various revenue streams and audiences. Many of the larger web publishers of the world use a supply-side platform to automate and optimize the selling of their online media space.[1]

A supply-side platform on the publisher side interfaces to an ad exchange, which in turn interfaces to a demand-side platform (DSP) on the advertiser side.

This system allows advertisers to put online advertising before a selected target audience.[2] Often, real-time bidding (RTB) is used to complete DSP transactions.[3]
