After the addition of the Publisher Postback, it is advised that you run a Publisher Postback Test before taking your Performance Marketing campaign live. If you are facing any issues while adding the Publisher Postback, then please check out this article on “How to add your Publisher Postback?“.

Running a test of your Publisher Postback is extremely important so that we can confirm whether all the Marcos and Parameters and placed successfully in the right position. Via the Postback test, we can get confirmation whether the conversions are getting tracked both at our end as well as the Publisher’s end & help you get an assurance that the tracking of your Affiliate Marketing Campaign is going to run smoothly.

Please note that the Postback has to be updated with Trackier’s Macro before adding it to our panel.
