I’ve always tried to ensure that I convey the importance of tracking. One little part of tracking that makes our lives a little easiest is a postback url/tracking pixel. The idea behind this is when you get a conversion on your network, this will automatically trigger that conversion in your tracker as well.
For this example, I have chosen to show how to do this with Prosper202 and Maxbounty. We also have a document on How to Add a postback/tracking Pixel from Prosper202 to Peerfly.
To Start, login to your Prosper202 tracker, under setup, click on “#8 Get Postback/Pixel”
There are a few different ways to do this, I am going to show you with the postback url. Highlight and copy the text in your Post Back URL box, it should look something like this: http://yourtracker.com/tracking202/static/gpb.php?amount=&subid=
Now Log in to your Maxbounty account and click on Profile
Scroll down to the bottom. Ensure your Default Callback Type is set to URL
Paste your link into Default Callback code
Modify your links to ensure you include the #RATE# and #S1# variables.
Your link should look like this after – http://yourtracker.com/tracking202/static/gpb.php?amount=#RATE#&subid=#S1#
The #S1# variable will pass the subid that converted back to your tracking link
The #RATE# variable will pass the amount that was credited to your account. If you do not include this, Prosper202 will automatically insert the default amount which you have put into your campaign in Prosper202.
Now click on Save and this will be the default used for all of your campaigns. Note you can also use individual postback urls for campaigns, if you set this at the campaign level, it will override the global setting for that one campaign.
If you are having problems with this, or are using a different network, try reaching out to your AM, normally they can help with this.
