Creating an Affiliate Network Element

Voluum TRK TRK Campaign Funnel Grouping

An affiliate network is a campaign element that helps you to organize promoted offers by their source. By adding it, you can enrich or change settings of your campaign funnel, however this element is not required to set up a campaign funnel in Voluum. For example, you can define a certain range of IP addresses which postback requests come from. Before adding it, it is highly recommended to find out more about the affiliate network's settings and how they might impact your tracking parameters. For more information on available options, go to the Affiliate Network: Options article.

To add an affiliate network to Voluum, perform the steps:

  1. In Voluum, go to the Affiliate networks tab. The Affiliate networks view will show up.

  2. Click the New affiliate network button. The New affiliate network form will show up.

  3. Provide a unique name for the campaign element in the Affiliate network name field.

  4. You might want to turn on the toggle to activate the following settings:

    • Append click ID to offer URLs:  All offers created and grouped with the related affiliate network have Voluum’s click ID automatically passed in the offer’s URL and appended at the end of it. If you want to turn on this option, you need to keep in mind that it has impact on the offer's URL.

    • Accept duplicate postbacks: This option will override the default setting and, as a result, postback URLs with the same click ID and empty txid will not be discarded as a duplicate. When you activate the Accept duplicate postbacks setting, you change the default settings and allow to accept registration of the duplicate postback requests.

    • Only accept postbacks from white-listed IPs: If you want to whitelist a selection of IPs for inbound postback requests, turn on this option. You can either provide a single IP address or a IP range in CIDR notation.

  5. Click the Save button. You have added the affiliate network element to Voluum.
