What is a postback integration?

Postback, or S2S (server-to-server) postback — is a way of tracking data of actions performed on different platforms. For example, it can connect the data collection from affiliate networks and ad networks, sending it to a tracker. Then the tracker preserves the gathered data in one piece, for example, conversions from CPA networks and data on traffic sources from ad networks. Thus, integrated postback allows to properly analyse ad campaign data without switching tabs and trying to figure out which end was from.

With the scope of postback gathered data it’s possible to optimize and narrow targeting parameters for your ad campaign. Also integrated postback unlocks the usage of unique platform features. For example, at RichAds connecting with postback allows launching ad campaigns in TargetCPA mode, which provides better optimization on traffic sources and getting the most conversions within the budget and desired CPA. Also after a postback integration it unlocks using Automated rules feature to set specific conditions for traffic sources by which they will be sorted into either whitelist and blocklist automatically.
