Testmyoffers is a special tool for testing tracking links of CPI offers for the main types of mobile devices. Autotests allow you to control your campaigns and their redirects without spending much time on manual checking.
Testmyoffers checks selected offers for a specified period. Once it checks an offer, it provides you with the test results in a separate report. Once an offer is inactive, it notifies you additionally. It helps you avoid sending traffic on broken links and save your time for checking such offers.
You can use Testmyoffers with the Affise statistics (the Testmyoffers slice). Read more about it here.
Integration with Testmyoffers
For testing, this plugin takes CPA offers because their redirection flow leads you either to Android Playmarket or to AppleStore to the application itself. That’s why Testmyoffers can easily check a chain of redirects for such offers and find the broken one.
The system identifies this type of offers based on the offer’s settings on Affise. You must enable the CPI checkbox if you want to test the offer (Offers > a certain offer > General):

Select the Enable checkbox to activate the Testmyoffers plugin.
In the TestMyoffers API key field, enter your Testmyoffers API key you generated in your Testmyoffers account.
In the Partners for track URL testing field, select the needed affiliate. The system uses this affiliate for a real test of the offer’s redirection flow. You can choose an affiliate that you use for testing.
⚠️ You should enable the affiliate to all offers that the Testmyoffers plugin needs to check. Otherwise, the plugin checks only public offers.
Enable the Check all offers checkbox to allow the plugin to check all the CPI offers.
In the Checking period (Hour) field, select the desired period. The period you choose depends on the number of offers you need to check.
🔎 The testing process takes some time. To avoid situations when one testing process is not finished yet, and the other one is already started, set '24H' in the field.
In the Checking time (from-to) fields, select the time for the test. Choose the time from which the plugin will start the checking process, and the time to which it will check it:
