  4. Provide a name of the affiliate network in the Affiliate network name text field.

  5. In the Advanced parameters section provide Olimob's parameter name and token to receive and pass back a click ID value and a payout token.

    Parameters in HTTP request URLs are used to pass various kinds of information. They come in parameter_name={token} pairs, where:

    • parameter_name is a target platform specific name that describes a value it passes. Olimob uses the sub1 parameter name to receive a click ID value in an offer URL.

    • {token} is a source platform specific placeholder that is replaced with concrete value when a URL is activated. Olimob used the {s2} token to pass a click ID value and the {revenue} token to pass information about payout to Voluum in a postback URL.

    To easily add tracking parameters to each offer that you apply for and to the postback URL, provide the following values:

    • Provide the {sub1} token in the Click ID placeholder text field.

    • Provide the sub1 parameter name in the Click ID parameter text field.

    • Provide the {revenue} token in the Payout placeholder text field.
