    When it comes to setting up tracking which involves Voluum, the affiliate network and a traffic source, it can get a little complicated.

    There is a place on the affiliate network where you can enter a postback url.

    There is a place on voluum where you can enter a postback url in the traffic source setup and at the same time it provides you with a postback url in the settings.

    On the traffic source (Ad Network), they can provide a conversion tracking code which can be placed in voluum.

    Can someone explain how all 3 connect and what settings go where and how it all ties together so that it all works in harmony?

    In my last campaign, I saw conversions within my aff network but my traffic source and voluum did not record these. So I know I am messing up somewhere and so I need to find out how the system works between the 3 entities.

    Do you know of a free guide which is available to study how the 3 entities pass info to each other and how the whole thing should be set up for optimum data?

    Appreciate the help,

    Charles ngo site has a in depth voluum setup manual. Also i think one of the moderators here also has a manual. Im sure both would work well. It is confusing, i don't blame you. Took me like a month to get it to work.

    Are you talking about the info he wrote on his site or is it a more in-depth manual available for download?

    Here is how you setup:

    - You get the offer tracking url from your Affiliate Network. You add that to Voluum
    - You get a postback url from the traffic source, You add that to Voluum
    - Voluum gives you a tracking url when you create the campaign, you add that to your traffic source.
    - Voluum gives you a postback url from its settings, you add that to your affiliate network.

    Here is how it works:

    - User clicks the tracking url given by Voluum and Voluum records a click.
    - Voluum now tells your Affiliate Network about the click (by redirecting to the tracking url provided by the affiliate network).
    - If the user converts (downloads app etc), your Affiliate network fires the postback url of Voluum.
    - Voluum now records the conversion and in turn fires the postback url of your traffic source and a conversion is recorded on your traffic source.

    Thanks Capt, this is much better and makes more sense than many others.
