Set up Affilinet

Affilinet is a network and Adjust module partner. Our integration lets Affilinet receive attribution and app event data through automated callbacks.

Use our basic setup instructions to turn on Adjust’s integration and send callbacks to Affilinet. Then, use our advanced setup instructions to customize what information Affilinet receives.

Basic setup

To turn on Adjust’s integration with Affilinet, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > ADD PARTNERS
  3. Select Add (+icon) next to Affilinet
  4. Enter your PROGRAM ID, INSTALL RATE NUM and REATTRIBUTION RATE NUM (contact your Affilinet representative for help finding these)
  5. Optional: see advanced setup to customize your callbacks
  6. Select Save

Well done! Basic setup is complete. Now you can create an Adjust tracker URL and submit it to Affilinet to launch your campaign.

Affilinet will receive callbacks for these activities:

  • install
  • event
  • reattribution

Advanced setup

Choose which data Affilinet receives from Adjust by customizing your setup.

Forward in-app revenue

Revenue forwarding lets Affilinet receive revenue amounts along with your revenue event data.

To forward in-app revenue to Affilinet, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > Affilinet
  3. Turn on In-App Revenue Forwarding

Now Affilinet will receive the revenue amount for every tracked transaction.

 

Note: Link at least one revenue event to Affilinet before turning on Revenue Forwarding

 

Forward custom data

Partner parameters (available in Adjust SDK version 4.0+) let Adjust collect custom data points from your app and send them to Affilinet.

Note: Before adding new partner parameters to the Adjust SDK, make sure no pre-existing partner parameters already fit your requirements.

To forward partner parameters to Affilinet, follow these steps.

  1. Set up partner parameters within the Adjust SDK (instructions for iOS and Android)
  2. In the Adjust dashboard, find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  3. Select Partner Setup > Affilinet
  4. Turn on Parameter Forwarding
  5. Select Partner Parameter Mapping
  6. In the FROM APP field, enter the name of your Adjust parameter (as written into the Adjust SDK). In the TO PARTNER field, enter your corresponding Affilinet name.
  7. Select Save

Now Affilinet will receive custom event details for each of your linked events.

 

Note: If you set up partner parameters within the Adjust SDK without turning on Partner Parameter Mapping, Adjust forwards the parameters as named in the Adjust SDK.

 

Forward app events

Event linking lets Affilinet receive app event data. You can link every app event in Adjust to a preset Affilinet name or a custom event name.

To forward app events to Affilinet, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup >Affilinet > Event Linking
  3. Find the event you want to link and update the field with a Affilinet event or your own custom name
  4. When you finish linking events, select OK
  5. Select Save

Now Affilinet will receive app event data for each of your linked events.

Partner specific setup instructions

Affilinet allows you to send a set of predefined parameters. If you attach any of these parameters to an event in your adjust SDK, these will be forwarded to Affilinet.
