I. Create a Campaign in Voluum

To track HilltopAds traffic, first, you need to create a campaign funnel in Voluum. This will provide you with a campaign URL that you will later submit to HilltopAds as a final destination URL. To do so, perform the following steps:

  1. Create an offer element. Read the Создание Offer Element (Элемента Оффера) article to learn how to do that.

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

  3. Create a traffic source element. Voluum provides you with the HilltopAds 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.
