Before you begin

Before you start setting up the integration, you need to create an offer and affiliate for this integration. Since you set up the Affise tracking link on Facebook, it works as your affiliate.

Facebook is the source of large amounts of traffic. There are limitations in running campaigns with 3rd-party links, but you can still buy traffic if you are using tracking platforms like Affise.

Set up an Affise tracking link on Facebook

To set up a campaign on Facebook with the Affise tracking link, follow the guide below:

  1. Set a custom tracking domain on Affise. To work with Facebook traffic, you need to buy a domain and add it as a custom tracking domain in the Affise account.

  2. Create a Facebook advertising campaign:

    1. In your Facebook ads account, click + Create.

      ⚠️ Since you integrate with your partner using JavaScript pixel, you need to integrate with your advertiser using JavaScript pixel as well.

  7. Check the activity on your pixel in your Events Manager account.
