Before You Start

Before you proceed with the instructions from this guide, make sure that you have the following:

  • An active Voluum account.

  • An active Olimob account.

  • (Recommended) An SSL certificate enabled on your Voluum domain.

Once you have everything prepared, you can proceed to the next part of this guide.

I. Get a postback URL from Voluum

First, we will get a postback URL from Voluum. This is a target link that will be used by Olimob to report conversions to Voluum. In order to get a postback URL, perform the following steps:

  1. In Voluum, click the profile_settings.png button. The Settings view will show up.

  2. Go to the Tracking URLs tab.

  3. Click the Copy button to copy a postback URL to the clipboard in the Secure Postback URL section.

    You can also copy the non-secure postback URL by clicking the Copy button in the Postback URL section, but using non-secure links is not recommended. Read the Secure Domain in a Campaign Funnel article to learn more.

With this link copied to the clipboard, you can go to Olimob and learn how to submit it there.

II. Set up Postback and Tracking Settings in Olimob

In this step, we will show how to submit the copied postback URL to Olimob and how to set up tracking tokens globally, so they will be applied for all offers. You can also set up tracking on an offer level, so you will have to do it every time you will want to get a new offer. But, if you use Voluum only to track your Olimob offers, we recommend following our instructions and setting tokens on an account level, as it will save you a lot of hassle and reduce a possibility of incorrect setup.

Sign in to the Olimob affiliate network platform and perform the following steps:

  1. In Olimob, click the settings_icon.png icon on the left-hand side menu.

  2. In the Default tracking parameters section enter the {clickid} token in the SUB1 text field. This creates the s1={click} parameter that will be automatically appended to every offer URL you get from Olimob. In this parameter:

    • s2 is a parameter name that describes a value that it passes. It is specific for the target platform (Olimob in this case).

    • {clickid} is a token that will be automatically replaced with concrete value. It is specific for the source platform (Voluum in this case).

    This parameter allows Voluum to pass a click ID value to Olimob, which uniquely identifies a users visit. When a conversion occurs, this value will be reported in a postback URL to Voluum, and Voluum will match it with an original visit. Then, a conversion counter will increase by 1.

  3. In the Postback section paste the copied postback URL in the Postback URL text field. Your postback URL should look like this:

    https:/voluum_dedicated_domain.com/postback?cid=REPLACE&payout=OPTIONAL&txid=OPTIONAL

    You need to edit it in a way that includes Olimob's tokens dedicated for passing a click ID and payout values. In order to do so:

    • Replace the word REPLACE next to the cid parameter name with Olimob's {sub1} token.

    • Replace the word OPTIONAL next to the payout parameter name with Olimob's {revenue} token.

    • Delete the rest of the postback URL, unless you want to track upsells. Read the Upselling: Registering Multiple Conversions per clickid article to learn more.

    Your edited postback URL should look like this:

    https:/voluum_dedicated_domain.com/postback?cid={sub1}&payout={revenue}

  4. Click the Save... button.

Your tracking settings have been saved. The hard part is over. Every offer that you get will have tracking tokens already configured and a postback URL will be used.

III. Get an Offer from Olimob.

Now we need to locate an offer that you want to promote. In order to do so, perform the following steps:

  1. In Olimob, click the offers_icon.png icon on the left-hand side menu.

  2. Select appropriate filtering options from the drop-down menus and click the Apply button.

  3. Click the Get link button next to an offer you want to promote.

  4. In the Get code for redirect pop-up window click the Copy and close button. You do not need to set anything here, as tracking tokens that we have set globally were already applied.

You now have an offer URL. The last thing to do is to create an offer element in Voluum.

IV. Create an Offer Element in Voluum

In order to create an offer element with your Olimob offer URL, perform the following steps:

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

  2. Click the New offer button.

    http://domain.com/eoXxJgAT?offer=11900&sub1={clickid}
  5. Leave the Payout option set to Auto, as we have configured the postback URL to pass information about the payout.

  6. After setting up any additional options, click the Save button.
