How to set up tracking conversions?

Postback conversion tracking passes information from one platform to another. To make your conversion visible in TrafficStars statistics, you must correctly set up a postback transfer.

You can transfer conversions directly from CPA networks, like iMonetizeIt or LosPollos, and through trackers.

TrafficStarts integrated with the most popular trackers.

Let's take a deeper look at what parameters it passes:

  • - this is our domain.

  • key=h4qbuetYksJUCt2Pi4kZQFMfBi1g5vucqJeJ - this is a unique key to identify the advertiser.

  • clickid - It’s the core parameter that passes conversion details.

  • value - This parameter reports your conversion revenue.

  • price - It reports the cost for conversion in CPA campaigns

  • lead_code - adding unique lead identifier allows multiple conversions for the same clickid

  • Allow_duplicates=1 - this parameter allows reporting all duplicate conversions

# STEP 2

Copy the URL you created above and insert it into the tracker or directly to CPA-network.

# STEP 3

Afterwards you need to copy promoted link (from the tracker or affiliate program) and add our tokens while creating a campaign.
