I have tried posting to Stack Overflow, paid two people from Fiverr, cold emailed eight strangers, and posted elsewhere online, and am still stuck... what is a bid payload?

We are trying to integrate Facebook Audience Network (FAN) ads into an iOS app, using Google AdMob as the mediation partner. Unfortunately, the FB sample code they've provided shows how to integrate the deprecated Waterfall method, when FB now only supports Bidding. 

This is the code that is used to load a Bidding FAN ad in iOS:

private func loadFacebookAd() {
 adView?.removeFromSuperview()
 let ad = FBNativeAd(placementID: "PLACEMENT_ID") 
 ad.delegate = self 

 // TODO: - Initiate a request to load an ad. Where does it come from?
 ad.loadAd(withBidPayload: <#T##String#>) 
}

ChatGPT claims that the BidPayload can be fetched upon loading a Google ad, in the callback:
func adLoader(_ adLoader: GADAdLoader, didReceive nativeAd: GADNativeAd) {

 but I am not seeing any property with a name resembling BidPayload in the Google Ad response data.

Where on earth does this BidPayload string come from?

All thanks and appreciation to you and your cooperation with me. I have now started advertising on iOS. Then I discovered this image as a lesson on the social networking site Facebook.
