A delivery rule set is re-usable set of delivery rules for a website.
Delivery rule sets mean that commonly used sets of one or more delivery rules can be quickly, easily and accurately re-used to ensure that banners are correctly delivered as desired.
Delivery Rule Sets
Delivery rule sets are a pre-defined set of delivery rules. They allow:
- A set of delivery rules to be applied quickly, easily and accurately to banners, to help ensure that multiple banners with the same delivery rule requirements all have the same delivery rules applied;
- A simple way to update the delivery rules that are being used by multiple banners, without having to edit each and ever banner's delivery rules; and
- A way of overcoming the default evaluation order for delivery rules, if required.

To create a new delivery rule set, go to Inventory > Delivery Rule Sets:

Define/Edit the Delivery Rule Set's Delivery Rules
Once the new delivery rule set has been created, the delivery rule set will be shown on the Inventory > Delivery Rule Sets page.

Using Delivery Rule Sets
