You should have AppMetrica account and application added into it. Also application should have AppMetrica SDK integrated. More information how to install AppMetrica SDK can be found here: AppMetrica SDK Integration.

In AppMetrica go to Trackers and create a new tracker with the details below:

  • Select your application
  • Create Media source (it can be your Affiliate Network name)
  • In Smartlink section add app Destination URL (usually AppStore or Google Play URL)
  • In Postback section, select event (installation or any other in-app event) and insert postback copied before (Point 3)

Copy Tracking URL from above, append it with: ?click_id={click_id}
and insert to Scaleo Offer into Offer URL field.

It will be something like this:

Everything is set now. Affiliate can use Offer Tracking Link to drive the traffic to your application. Once the application will be installed or any event happened, the conversion will be recorded in Scaleo platform and Affiliate will be credited.

Please take in mind the following:

  • Application should be published and available in app market
  • Conversion should be recorded in AppMetrica at the first place. You can see the report at AppMetrica: Trackers - Report. If no conversion recorded in AppMetrica it means SDK or Tracker was not configured properly.
