Advertizer.com integration in CPV Lab Pro

Below you will find a step by step guide on how you can configure everything in CPV Lab Pro by using Advertizer.com as a Traffic Source.

Step 1. Setup the Advertizer.com traffic source in CPV Lab Pro.

  • Go to the Traffic Sources page from the Settings menu and add/edit the Advertizer.com traffic source
    • you can import it from the Traffic Source Catalog (for CPV Lab Pro V5+) or you can manually add it, as described below.
  • Enter "clickid" as the External ID Token since this will be the parameter that receives the unique code for each visitor.
  • Enter the "part" parameter to receive the "partner_id" from Advertizer.com, although this is not always needed (depends on your setup).
  • The 2 wildcards ([[subid]] and [[partner_id]]) will be replaced by Advertizer.com with the corresponding values for each visitor.

NOTE: These wildcards vary from one traffic source to another, but the setup in CPV Lab Pro is similar for all traffic sources, just the wildcard differ. The traffic source Advertizer.com sends a unique code for each visitor in the Campaign URL (base.php) page, they call it "click id".

    • [[amount]] to be replaced with {!revenue!}

Advertizer Step 3

  • Click on the Test link provided by Advertizer.com and that will redirect to the Campaign URL with a unique code instead of the [[subid]] wildcard (6577332914478908778):

http://cpvlabpro-domain/base.php?c=1&key=40129c36d73cb2eb357bb46c9143e081&clickid=6577332914478908778&part=2126

Advertizer Step 4

Step 5. Call Postback URL

  • Take the additional pixel entered in the campaign:

http://postback.advertizer.com/pb.php?clickid={!tscode!}&amount={!revenue!}&advertiser_id=bbbbbbbbb&key=fa086783f864185b66abe8e93aabd3d1

  • Replace the 2 wildcards with actual values in order to call the postback URL and confirm the conversion.
    • In the example below {!tscode!} was replaced with the unique visitor code (6577332914478908778) and {!revenue!} with 0.10 (test revenue):

http://postback.advertizer.com/pb.php?clickid=6577332914478908778&amount=0.10&advertiser_id=bbbbbbbbb&key=fa086783f864185b66abe8e93aabd3d1

  • Call this URL in a browser to simulate the postback URL. You could also go through the offer page and register a conversion, that would also fire the postback URL. Just make sure that you setup the CPV Lab Pro Tracking pixel (adclick.php page) at offer source. Any of the pixel variations provided in the campaign setup page would work, choose what will work for the offer source.

Ready! Now the test conversion was confirmed and the campaign is active in Advertizer.com.
