I. Create a Campaign in Voluum

The first thing you need to do is to create a campaign in Voluum. This will provide you with a campaign URL that you will submit to RUNative in the next step. In order to do so, perform the following steps:

  1. Create an offer element. Read the Creating an Offer Element article to learn how to do that.

  2. (Optionally) Create a lander element. Read the Create a Lander Element article to learn more.

  3. Create a traffic source element. Voluum provides you with the RUNative traffic source template, so you can use it and skip most of the manual setup. In order to use this template, perform the following steps:

    1. Go to the Traffic sources tab.

    2. Click the New traffic source button.
