Set up Spotad

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

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

Basic setup

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

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > ADD PARTNERS
  3. Select the add (+) icon next to Spotad
  4. Enter your ACCOUNT ID and BRAND ID (for help finding these, contact your Spotad representative)
  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 Spotad to launch your campaign.

Spotad will receive callbacks for these activities:

  • click
  • install
  • session
  • reattribution
  • event
  • rejectedInstall

Advanced setup

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

Forward in-app revenue

In-app revenue forwarding lets Spotad receive revenue amounts along with your revenue event data.

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

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

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

Note: Link at least one [revenue event] to Spotad before turning on In-App Revenue Forwarding.

Forward sessions

Adjust does not automatically send session callbacks due to the high volume of sessions.

To forward in-app sessions to Spotad, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > Spotad
  3. Turn on Session Forwarding

Now Spotad will receive your app’s session activity.

Forward in-app events

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

To forward in-app events to Spotad, follow these steps.

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

Now Spotad will receive in-app event data for each of your linked events.
