YieldKit Full Integration

Integrating Voluum and YieldKit accounts enables both platforms to pass conversion information via API, without using standard postback or pixel methods. This ensures reliability and integrity of data, as well as allows for easier setup.

How Does It Work?

The integration replaces the standard conversion reporting methods, such as postback URL or conversion tracking pixel. In this setup, Voluum periodically calls YieldKit's API and fetches any new conversions. Each conversion is imported with a time when it actually happened, not with a time of upload.

In short, the procedure goes as follows:

  1. You set up a YieldKit offer in Voluum using the YieldKit affiliate network template as usual. To learn more about adding an affiliate network from a template, read the Add an Affiliate Network to Voluum article.
  2. You set up an API integration in Voluum's Settings panel using a YieldKit API key.
  3. Visitors' clicks are tracked and conversion information is sent back periodically without the need of configuring postbacks or pixels.
