Setting up Postback URL

Integrating a network’s offers with another using the different software is a quite a tough task. But since vNative have great customer success managers it has become easy to integrate network.  Different software has different tokens to pass.
In this article, we will learn to integrate vNative with networks who are using CAKE as a tracking platform.
In general, there are two ways the systems could be set up:

  1. You deploy the offer from another network (you are their affiliate)
  2. They deploy the offer from you (they are your affiliate)

You Are Their Affiliate

First, set up the offer using the Server Postback with click_id tracking protocol, using the tracking link from their platform. Your default offer URL field should look something like this:

http://theirnetwork.CAKEtracking.org/aff_c?a=XX&c=XX&s2={click_id}

Ideally, you want to pass the {click_id} through s2-s5 parameters.
Then, give them the global postback URL from your platform, which looks similar to this:

http://track.vnative.com/acquisition?click_id=#s2#&security_token=b50346a1c529c82dac33

Once they place this in their platform, the offer should be ready for testing.

If they are your Affiliate

If any network using CAKE wants to deploy one of your offers, they first need to add your affiliate tracking link as their default offer URL. Here’s how it should look in their platform:

http://trk.vnative.com/58975c767XXXXXX?p1=#reqid#

Next, they need to update server postback to their list of URLs (Publisher Account >> Select events, type and enter Callback >> click on save callback). Their postback should look something like this:

http://theirnetwork.CAKEtracking.org/aff_lsr?r={p1}
