How to set up Postback tracking in RedTrack

How to set up Postback tracking in RedTrack

Step One: Grab your offer 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.

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.

When you have chosen an offer, click on View Details to see a preview, payouts and an offer description.

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

In the same section, you can Select a Landing Page that you want to use. If you don’t want to use a pre-lander, select the Direct option for a direct link to the offer page.

If there is only a Direct option, that campaign does not have a pre-lander available

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

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!

Copy the URL in the Get tracking link section by right-clicking or by clicking the  icon to copy to your clipboard.

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: Grab your postback from RedTrack & create an offer

Login to RedTrack and create an offer:

  • In RedTrack, go to the Networks tab.
  • Click New, scroll down to YTZ, click Add, click Save.
  • Next, go to the Offers tab and click New.
  • Name your offer & select YTZ from the drop-down menu.
  • Paste your YTZ tracking link into the URL field.
  • Set the Payout option to 0

Copy your postback URL and hit Save and close.

Step Three: Add your postback to your YTZ account

The final step is adding your RedTrack postback to YTZ so that you can start sending traffic!

Login to YTZ and go to the Postback section of the dashboard.

Click Add Postback.

Make sure you have Account selected from the top drop down menu (not Campaign).

Paste your postback URL in the bottom section. YTZ is integrated with RedTrack, so the parameters are already correct in the postback that you copied from their system.

Click Add Postback.

Summary:

Your postback in YTZ should look like this:
xxx.rdtk.io/postback?clickid={SUB1}&sum={REVENUE}

Then your YTZ offer link should look like this in RedTrack:
https://link.ytzlink.com/?s1={clickid}&kw={sourceid}

That’s it - You are ready to start sending traffic!
