Clickdealer Integration

Integrating Voluum and Clickdealer 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.

Danger

Feature in Beta

This feature is in the beta version and it is available for volunteer participants for testing.

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 Clickdealer'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 Clickdealer offer in Voluum using the Clickdealer 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 Clickdealer's API key.

  3. Visitors' clicks are tracked and conversion information is sent back periodically without the need of configuring postbacks or pixels.
