You may choose to do conversion tracking without installing the PMC pixel. This can be done via Server-side pixel (S2S pixel) tracking.
The option is typically used when you do not have access to the source code advertiser website or for conversions that happen on 3rd party platforms (for example mobile downloads on the play store).
In the server-side pixels, the pixel is fired from your servers and does not need to be placed on the webpage.
IMPLEMENTATION OF S2S TRACKING
Please log into PMC via campaigns.performmedia.com and follow the below instructions.
|1. Set up a tracking URL parameter for the Perform click ID via the Advertisers section.
|2. This tracking parameter will be added to all the destination URLs. You must retrieve the value of the tracking parameter on your website (from the destination URL). This will be required in step 3.
3. When a conversion event occurs, the following postback URL can be fired from your servers.
