How does the integration look in general?
You place a piece of code on your website that will allow trackdesk to track affiliate clicks
You place a piece of code on your thank-you page on your website (the last page people see after they buy or sign up). Only then the affiliate commissions can be properly calculated.
Get the Click Script
First, grab the click tracking script from your affiliate trackdesk program. You'll need this to see when users click on affiliate links. You can obtain the tracking script in 2 ways:
Offer detail → Tracking methods section
See the Integrations section in the main menu
Insert the script into your Website
This script needs to be placed on ALL pages of your website. If you use subdomains (e.g., app.yourdomain.com), make sure the script is placed on these subdomains as well.
Head to the landing page where you plan to put the affiliate links and monitor clicks. Pick a suitable place to add the click-tracking script to the page's code. The best is to place the code within the <head> part of the HTML.
Get the Conversion Script
At this stage, you should be able to track all the clicks coming to your website. Now we need to also place a script that tracks successful conversions on your thank you page.
You can obtain the script in the same way as you get the click script. Just skip the first step and follow the instructions on setting your desired Conversion type.
Insert the Conversion Script into your Website
Open the thank you page where you want to track conversions. Typically, this is the page users land on after completing a desired action (e.g., purchasing or signing up). The conversions are tracked through Conversion types. Your platform comes by default with three conversion types:
You can track as many Conversions as you need. However, please remember that a script must be placed for each Conversion type individually.
Once the script is in place, remember to save your changes to the HTML code.
By following these steps and integrating the click-tracking script on your landing page and the conversion-tracking script on your thank you page, you'll ensure accurate tracking of clicks and conversions within your affiliate program. Always test the integration thoroughly to confirm that everything is working as intended.
