    Hello, what is the best/fastest way to track conversions for incentive offers. I am still in the process of setting up an offer wall but not there yet.. .for now i just want to track conversions fast.

    How do I do this? For affiliate networks like peerfly, maxbounty, etc...

    When you give them a link you add a id to no who sent the traffic

    ?id=12345&page=bodybuilding

    Echo $Get['page'];

    Echo $Get['id'];

    You can use a bitly link to achieve it. Just redirect the user to a bitly link after each successful conversion. You will get the exact number of successful conversions.

    So do I put that in the callback URL? so you're saying just by looking at the bitly stats for each offer and site i'm tracking from, i can just use that as a makeshift conversion tracker. Very interesting, okay.

    Isn't there a way to get the affiliate/merchant to tell me instantly whether it converted or not? Are you saying bitly should match the conversions before let's say any reversed conversions or shaving by the network?

    Lets put it this way.
    You put a bit.ly link (for a thank you page) where the user gets redirected after successfully completing the offer.

    User comes to your page--->Completes the offer--->gets redirected to Thank you page (you get the stats on bitly)
    or
    User comes to you page---->Doesn't finish the offer----> No redirection happens.

    This is just for the basic tracking of offer completion. If you need something more advanced, then you can go for tracking tools like volumm etc
