    Well, you will most likely use a server with a DB to host the advertisements and use a web service to allow the app to request ads to be displayed.

    But more importantly, chances to get that kind of app into the app store are about 0.001%. Take a look at the App Store Review Guidelines, point 2.13:
    2.13 Apps that are primarily marketing materials or advertisements will be rejected
    It would be wise to familiarize yourself with these before starting a project: https://developer.apple.com/appstore/guidelines.html

    Many thanks, How do companies like Groupon get around this, they are selling services and products?

    Just as you said, that's not just advertising they place, they're selling goods and services. They have much more functionality, handling transactions etc.
