Postback Guide

Overview

Many publishers request that YouAppi report the installs back to them automatically. For this purpose, YouAppi uses the publisher’s global callback URL to “ping” them every time there’s an install. Every time YouAppi reports an install to the publisher’s callback URL, we send along some useful data (like the publisher’s click ID). We do this by automatically populating the dedicated parameters on the publisher’s callback URL in real-time (i.e., specifically for every install). The publisher then matches the install with the click it originated from by matching the ID of the click with the click ID that was passed back by us on the install callback.

Postback Format

The format of the install callback differs from publisher to publisher, but all must have a dedicated parameter which YouAppi can populate with the publisher’s click ID in real-time.

For now YouAppi only support sending GET postbacks.
