    We're looking at setting up our game for release under UDP. It's a freemium style (IAP + Adverts) and currently uses Admob mediation with several other ad providers, including Unity Ads, in our mediation stack.

    Choosing Admob on the UDP dash though shows this warning:
    "AdMob may face issues getting ad campaigns once your build is repacked."

    Has anyone released a game using Admob mediation? Will it work on some storefronts and not others and if so which ones?

    The reason for this warning is that the package name of the APK after packaging will change, which may cause problems with AdMob.

    Will Admob terminate Admob account if this happens, When you release game outside on google play?

    I have the same problem. What should I do to avoid AdMob failure?

    A workaround is to register the repacked package name in Admob.

    For example:
    The original package name is 'com.sample.company'. If you repacked for Samsung Galaxy Store, a suffix ".gs" will be added to the package name. So please register the package name 'com.sample.company.gs' in Admob instead of 'com.sample.company'.
