Integrating your Install and In-App Event Postbacks

 Note

  • See below for an explanation of how to format install and in-app event postbacks for the Everflow platform:
  • You must send AppsFlyer your custom everflow domain in place of “servecvr.com” in the below postbacks


Global Install Postback

http://www.servecvr.com/?nid=[everflow_network_placeholder]&transaction_
id=$$click(clickid)

NID is the Network ID provided by Everflow.

Global In-App Event Postback

http://www.servecvr.com/?event_id=[everflow_eventid_placeholder]&nid=
[everflow_network_placeholder]&transaction_id=$$click(clickid)

event_id

The unique in-app event ID generated by Everflow for each offer event.

event_id= Set as Event Tag in the AppsFlyer dashboard for each app by the advertiser

This is the actual in-app event name from the application.

Extra useful things to add to Appsflyer tracking links

&af_additionalpostback=1This allows you the ability to place more than one postback url in Appsflyer and fire them at the same time for every click ID
&af_installpostback=falseThis allows you to only postback conversions for the event and not postback conversions for the install to Everflow at all
