Before you begin
Set up deeplink as a path
To set up a deeplink as a path, follow the steps below:
On the Tracking tab of your offer, activate the Allow deeplinks checkbox.
Go to the Affiliate panel. In the necessary offer, enter a specific part of the link in the Deeplink field.
For example, your advertiser is an online store owner who wants to promote a certain item of clothing (like skirts), not the store as a whole. In such a case, your specific part of the link leads to the product - /category/skirts.
⚠️ Remember that in the Deeplink field, you must place only a specific part of the link, not the whole link. If you enter the whole link, the system will not pass click ID.
After you enter a specific part of the link, the system automatically transforms the tracking URL into the deeplink with the path parameter and redirects you to the needed product page.
The tracking link looks like this before the transformation:
After the transformation, it looks like this:
🔎 Check with your advertiser which part of the link is responsible for the desired redirect. Otherwise, the tracking link is wrong and redirects to the 404 page.
To receive some additional information from an affiliate, update the Affise tracking link with any of the free sub1-sub8 and ref_id parameters.
⚠️ It's recommended not to use the additional parameters after a deeplink as a path as they are cut during the redirect. Use a deeplink as a redirect instead.
To allow deeplinks in the offer via API, use this method:
and the parameter allow_deeplink.
Set up deeplink as a redirect
To set up a deeplink as a redirect to another link independent from the tracking URL, do the following:
On the Offer preview page, generate an Affise tracking link for a specific affiliate. Update it with additional parameters if needed.
Update the link with the redirect parameter, specifying a URL that serves as a deeplink. Share the link with your affiliate.
If necessary, on the Tracking tab of your offer, indicate additional parameters for a redirect link in the Redirect URL parameters checkbox.
The system automatically adds these parameters to the redirect link during the redirect.
🔎 You can use tracking links with deeplinks as QR codes to enhance your traffic.
