How to Set Up an International Redirect in Affise

How to Set Up an International Redirect in Affise

Are you making the most of your traffic? If you do not currently have a redirect in place, you are not monetizing your traffic to its full potential. Add YTZ’s smart link to the back-end of your offers or your back button redirects and add 10% net revenue to all of your campaigns. It takes 5 minutes to set up and the link will monetize ALL traffic types, geos & sources.

Step One:  Grab your smart link from YTZ

Login to your YTZ account and grab a campaign link to get started! If you need any assistance or have any questions about the campaigns, please reach out to your account manager.

  1. In the YTZ dashboard, go to the Campaigns section on the left-hand side.
    • You can filter the campaign section by name, country, geo etc. to narrow down your selection
  2. When you have chosen an offer, click on View Details to see a preview, payouts and an offer description. Since you are setting up a redirect, choose campaign #20 – Mainstream Smart Link


  3. Scroll down to the Tracking Link section and agree to the terms to generate your unique tracking link.


  4. The next step is to configure the tracking parameters. Start by adding Affise’s mandatory {clickid} token in the S1 box. You can find all other Affise macros here. It is also recommended that you pass source IDs through the KW field. Add {pid} in the KW box. These will automatically update the URL in the Get Tracking Link section below, where you can easily copy the link.


    1. You can also use the Select Restrictions section if your traffic source restricts certain offer actions (like alerts). Select your desired option from the drop-down menu. This section is optional and not recommended unless required by your traffic source!
    2. Copy the URL in the Get tracking link section by right-clicking or by clicking the copy-icon icon to copy to your clipboard.
    3. Since we will be setting a global postback for your entire account, you can leave the postback section blank at the bottom for all of your campaigns.

Step Two:  Create an offer in Affise & Grab your postback

Login to Affise, add YTZ as an advertiser & create an offer:

  1. Go to the Advertisers section and click the green Add button.
  2. Fill out the necessary details and save.
  3. Go to the Offers section and hit the green New Offer button.
  4. Fill out the relevant offer information under the General tab and save and continue.


  5. Under the Tracking tab, paste your URL for your YTZ smart link. Hit Save and continue.


  6. Under the Targeting Groups tab, check the box for Click-level Anti-fraud and hit save and continue.


  7. Under the Postbacks tab copy your S2S Postback from the Integration pixels section.
  8. Hit Save.
  9. Go to the Payouts tab. Make sure to select Percent as your payment type.
  10. If you need additional help with this section, you can check out Affise’s guide here.

Step Three:  Add your postback to your YTZ account

  1. Login to YTZ and go to the Postback section of the dashboard.
  2. Click Add Postback.
  3. Make sure you have Account selected from the top drop down menu (not Campaign).
  4. Paste your postback URL in the bottom section.
  5. Replace {clickid} with {SUB1}
  6. Add &sum={REVENUE} to the end of the URL.
  7. Click Add Postback.

Step Four:  Add YTZ as a redirect on all of your offers

  1. In Affise go to the Settings section.
  2. Under settings click on Trafficback.
  3. Add your YTZ smart link under Global Trafficback URL and hit Save. Check both boxes.


  4. Next, select the offer to add the redirect to and go to the Caps tab. Click the blue + button to add a new cap rule. Cap rules should be set for All conversions goals. Otherwise the OverCap function (which we set up next) will not work. Add all necessary cap rules for your offer.


  5. You can find more information about caps here
  6. Check the OverCap box and hit Save.
  7. Repeat this step with all offers.

That’s it - You have successfully set up YTZ as a redirect on your offer in Affise! Now you will earn revenue on traffic that was previously going to waste. Make sure to repeat that step for each offer to maximize your earnings.
