How to Build and Apply Traffic Sources

Step #1

Navigate to Partners - Traffic Sources, then click the Add Traffic Source button.

Step #2

Enter the desired parameters and macros that will be automatically appended to the Partner Tracking Link when the Traffic Source is applied. In this case, there is no need for your Partner to build the link using & signs, as Everflow will insert these parameters automatically.

Step #3

Generate a Partner's tracking link and apply a Traffic Source by navigating to Offers - Manage > Select the Offer > Tracking Links tab.

Select the Partner and Traffic Source, and then you will see the Traffic Source parameters appended to their tracking link.

Step #4

Apply the Traffic Source to a Partner's account so that these custom parameters and macros are automatically included when the Partner generates their own tracking links in the Partner Portal. Navigate to Partners - Manage > Select the Partner > General card - Edit > Select Traffic Source - Save.

Please note that you may also apply a Traffic Source to pending Partners by navigating to Partners - Manage > Pending > Select Partner > General - Edit.

Step #5 (OPTIONAL)

Add your Partner's Postback URL so that when you apply this particular Traffic Source to their tracking link, the Postback URL is automatically tied to the Offer / Partner. You can view this Postback by navigating to Partners - Postbacks.
