Payout tracking

What is the payout?

It’s the amount you get paid for the conversion.

With RedTrack you can track your conversions in 2 different ways: dynamically and statically.

Statically

This provides you with an alternative solution if dynamic payout macros aren’t supported by your affiliate network (or advertiser). You can record payout by using a fixed payout value in the offer settings. To set it up, do the following:
1. When creating or editing an offer, navigate to the payout section;
2. Set the payout value per each registered conversion:

Dynamically

This method offers you an effective and accurate method of tracking using a dynamic payout token or fixed value in your S2S postback URL or tracking pixel.
If your affiliate network supports a dynamic payout token, it will send it back to RedTrack via your postback URL / pixel for each registered conversion via our supported {sum} parameter.
Upon adding a Network, edit the Postback URL template with the payout tracking macro. It will vary for each particular network, so please contact your account manager for the right parameter.


For the preset templates, this parameter is already available.

Here are some examples of postback URLs with dynamic tokens:
