Definition of conversion statuses
Conversions can be of 4 statuses in Affise:
1 - Approved
2 - Pending
3 - Declined
5 - Hold
Below you'll find a detailed guide on all the statuses:
Conversions are marked as approved once they match the offer payout completely: GEO, Device, OS, Subs, Goal value:
When a conversion is approved, it'll be further added to the affiliate's billing, and it can be paid for.
If conversions are marked as pending , it means that you may need some time to review the conversions and make a decision: whether to approve them or to decline.
If conversions are marked as declined , they have declined due to a specific reason.
If a conversion is marked as hold, it means that a payment decision is put on hold and conversions will be paid for at a certain amount of time. This time can be set and managed in the offer's settings: Postbacks - > Hold period. In the Hold period field, you can set a number of hours or days after which the conversion will be automatically approved and paid for.
How to receive a conversion only in a specific status?
A conversion can be received in a specific status if it is forcibly sent via a postback in the related parameter.
To send a specific status forcibly via a postback, you should use the parameter &status= for S2S integration or &afstatus= for Pixel Integration.
All the statuses in Affise have system values:
1 for Approved status
2 for Pending status
3 for Declined status
5 for Hold status
That's why if you want to receive all the conversions only in pending status, you should add the &status= parameter to your Affise postback which is set on Advertiser's side and a system value (a digit) for a specific status:
By receiving such a postback, you'll forcibly get the conversions in pending (2) status.
