Deep Links

What is deep linking?

Basically deep linking is when you allow the affiliate to send the user directly to an offer page that isn't the destination url. A good example of this in use is for promotion of specific products within an ecommerce business. 

Step #1

The network must first allow the offer to be deep linked(you must verify with them first before doing this). 

Step #2

You then need to setup on the offer to allow deep linking by going to Offers > Manage > Click on the offer > edit > Tracking & Controls tab > click to turn "Support Deep Links" on.

Step #3

You will have the ability to customize where the user will be redirected to. To activate this option, you need to append the encoded URL ( via the url parameter.


This means you have to add: ?url= to your tracking URL manually and then after the "=" you need to use the URL encoder( to generate your encoded deep link and add it there(after the "="). 

Please note we will honour any valid macros that are part of the deep links. In the example above, the {transaction_id} macro would be replaced with the Everflow unique click id.
