1. Go to your RedTrack account (If you are not registered, here is the link to the sign-up form) to add digistore24 as your offer source: Offer sources -> New -> type digistore24 in the  ‘Title’ search bar -> Add

2. Once you add it, you will notice that all the necessary fields are already prefilled, and the postback template is available. Adjust other settings the way you need. More information on each of them can be found here.

3. Copy the postback URL (it already contains your dedicated tracking domain, so you do not need to change anything).

4. Go to your digistore24 account -> Marketplace -> choose the offer you want to promote and request access

5. Once approved, you will get the tracking link, copy it

6. Go to your RedTrack offers to add your digistore24 offer URL:  Offers ->  New.
Add the name, choose digistore24 as your offer source, adjust all other settings the way you need (more information can be found here), and finally, add the URL of the offer. Save the changes.
The most important thing here is to add the click id parameter to the end of the offer URL. For digistore24 the correct parameter is cid={clickid}

7. Go back to your digistore24 account -> Account -> S2S postback -> Add new connection

8. Fill in all the fields and checkboxes accordingly. Here are some tips on the functionality:

Affiliate partnerships – choose the offer for this postback. With digistore24 you can set different postbacks on different products and several postbacks on the same product.

For order event – select the events you want to track and see in your RedTrack account

Postback URL – paste the postback  URL you have copied in your RedTrack account within step 3

Currency – you have the possibility to convert the payout amount to some other currency on digistore24 side. This could be very useful if your RedTrack account is in USD and you work with all other partners with USD but the offer in digistore24 is paid in EUR. If you set the rule to convert the amount to USD, the payout information in your RedTrack account will be accurate.

Active – set “yes”

Email address for error notifications – could be useful in order not to miss any conversion data in case of any errors and fix them immediately.

Save the changes.

*9. Since digistore24  allows you to track several different types of events, you can receive those events in your RedTrack account under different columns and thus have even more data to analyze.

To do that, first set the conversion types in your RedTrack account. Go to  tools ->conversion tracking-> conversion type

Those conversion type names should be the same you have in your digistore24  account postback settings here.

Once done, go to your postback settings and update it with the {type} macro: &type={order_type}

There are 4 different macros supported by digistore24 and all of them can be used for that purpose:

{transaction_type} – e.g. payment, refund, chargeback

{billing_status} – e.g. paying, completed, aborted

{billing_type} – e.g. single_payment, subscription, installment

{order_type} – e.g. initial_sale, upsell

You can use all of them as different conversion types in RedTrack (we support up to 11). Add a new postback for this product and simply replace {order_type} to any other from the list. One macro per one postback.

So for example, if you want to track {transaction_type}, {order_type}  and {billing_type}, you will need to add 3 different postbacks for that product on digistore24 side. The names of incoming events should match those you set in your RedTrack conversion types settings (they are case-sensitive).

Possible errors

This error pops up when you click on the “Test” button, and there is no real clickid value in the postback link – there is nothing to test.

Add the postback URL into the right field and save it (make sure all parameters are set correctly according to this guide). It will work once there is a real conversion with a real value.
