How To Test Publisher Tracking Links?

You can test publisher links using Test Link tool. This tool emulates the conversion and helps you to check if affiliates postback works correct.

It's important to switch ALL targeting restrictions in offer settings and affiliate side like Geo or OS off

Hash password and allowed IPs must be also switched off.

Also you can create special test links which will ignore offer's targeting restrictions.

But it doesn't ignore hash password or IP whitelist.
