How to create a Postback URL

What is a postback url and why to use it

 

 

Postback URL allows you to track conversions using a third-party tracking platform and send the information about conversions to Popadup reports. This way you can track ROI on the reports page and optimize campaigns to achieve better results. As a rule Postback URL is used for CPA campaigns.

To get a Postback URL, follow the steps listed below:

1. On the New Campaign page, select Postback request  to generate the URL .

2. Copy the URL, replace [CLICK_ID] and REVENUE_IN_USD with the parameters from your tracking platform.

http://rtb.adx1.com/log?action=conversion&key=[CLICK_ID]&price=REVENUE_IN_USD

For example, if your tracking platform uses {clickid} and {payout} parameters, your Postback URL would be formatted as follows:

http://rtb.adx1.com/log?action=conversion&key={clickid}&price={payout}

Please note that the parameters may be different. You need to obtain all the parameters from your tracking platform.

3. Paste the Postback URL you have created into your tracking platform.

To set up a Destination URL, proceed as follows:

1.Copy the Offer Link from your tracking platform.

2. Modify the Offer Link by adding PopAdUp [CLICK_ID] macro.

Normally, offer links contain Click ID parameters:

You need to replace the clickid value with the [CLICK_ID] macro as follows: clickid=4f3hgeh –> clickid=[CLICK_ID]

http://trgln.com/cpa?oid=hj874827483h534i5o4krllm=f98f9e4f3hgeh24620ae&clickid=[CLICK_ID]

In case there is no Click ID parameter included into your offer link, you need to add it manually depending on the parameters supported by your tracking platform. It can be either clickid or subid. Please note that the clickid parameter prevails.

For example, your offer link looks like this:

http://trgln.com/cpa?oid=hj874827483h534i5o4krllm=f98f9e4f3hgeh24620ae

After adding the click ID parameter ( clickid or subid) and our macro [CLICK_ID], your link should look like this:

http://trgln.com/cpa?oid=hj874827483h534i5o4krllm=f98f9e4f3hgeh24620ae&clickid=[CLICK_ID]

http://trgln.com/cpa?oid=hj874827483h534i5o4krllm=f98f9e4f3hgeh24620ae&subid=[CLICK_ID]

Please note that if both clickid and subid parameters are supported by your tracking platform, the clickidparameter prevails.

3. Put the link into the Destination URL field.
