I need a help for the project I am working on. I have task that we have to display ads from third party server in email; when email is being render on client machine.

Third party company who sources those ads; have given some instruction. I am copy pasting here; can anyone please help me how do i do this, in Exact Target HTML Email file?

I think it may can be done using AMP SCRIPT?

Here is what they wrote;

HTML Feed Integration

HTML feed integration is useful when it is not possible or desirable to run JavaScript on the client, for instance when the ad unit is inserted into the e-mail body.

Serialize the request as JSON and HTTP POST this object to the service endpoint. Make sure to pass 'Content-Type: application/json' header in your HTTP request.

Testing endpoint



{ "api_token": "xxxxxxxx", "placement_id": "xxxxxx", "sub_1": "test sub id", "data": { "zip": "90210" } }


{ "html": "html snippet", "time": 0.213 }

  • Anyone please?????

1 Answer 1


I'd write a SSJS Script Activity to pull data with httpget() from the feed URL and store it in a Data Extension. Script Activities have to be enabled in your account by SFMC Support.

Once the Script Activity is written, then you can add it to an Automation in Automation Studio to refresh the Data Extension on some interval.

Then in the email you can simply retrieve the Data Extension row using one of the AMPScript Lookup functions.

  • In this case, I will then Freelance this project :).
