Custom Pricing

Traffic with custom affiliate payouts or merchant revenue is grouped together on a single line within Reports.  This is also true for traffic from your selected test affiliate. Impressions, clicks and conversions associated with a custom sub ID payout/revenue, custom creative payout/revenue or merchant revenue override displays in the Custom row in Reports.  Affiliate Center reporting works the same way but does not contain the word Custom next to the row.

The Custom row displays in Reports when the following features are used:

  • Affiliate Payout from Percent Based Campaigns
  • Affiliate Payout passed in through a Custom Conversion Parameter
  • Affiliate Payout by Sub ID (SID)
  • Affiliate Payout by Creative ID (ADID)
  • Merchant Revenue from Percent Based Campaigns
  • Merchant Revenue passed in through a Custom Conversion Parameter
  • Merchant Revenue by Affiliate
  • Merchant Revenue by Sub ID (SID)
  • Merchant Revenue by Creative ID (ADID)
