Requirements For Integration
There are two primary pieces to create a tracking integration between CAKE and another partner on CAKE. These two pieces allow you to track clicks and conversions in real-time.
The first item is a tracking link and the second is a Postback URL, which facilitates server-to-server tracking.
If you are the affiliate, you will be receiving a tracking link and providing the CAKE Postback URL to your advertiser.
If you are the advertiser, you will be receiving a postback URL and providing a tracking link to your affiliate.
How To Integrate CAKE To An Advertiser On CAKE
As the affiliate in this situation, you will need your advertiser's tracking link. This is also referred to as the redirect link.
This link will be configured within the Offer as the Landing Page within CAKE.
Before you place the CAKE tracking link, it will need to be configured to include CAKE's session ID token.
Before the CAKE Postback can be placed in your advertiser's CAKE platform, update it to include teh appropriate CAKE token.
The o= parameter can be optionally removed to effectively make this Postback URL a "Global Affiliate Pixel" within your advertiser's platform. The token used in s2= on the tracking link passes an offer-specific session ID, making this possible.
