Definition conversion's statuses
Conversions can be of 5 statuses in Affise:
- 1 - Approved
- 2 - Pending
- 3 - Declined
- 4 - Not found
- 5 - Hold
Below you'll find a detailed guide on all the statuses:
- Approved conversions
Conversions are marked as 'approved' once they match offer's payout completely: GEO, Device, OS, Subs, Goal value:
Check our guide about how the conversion selects the appropriate payout.
When a conversion is approved, it'll be further added to the affiliate's billing, and it can be paid for.
- Pending conversions
If conversions are marked as 'pending' , it means that you may need some time to review the conversions and make a decision: whether to approve them or to decline.
- Declined conversions
If conversions are marked as 'declined' , they have declined due to a specific reason. You can find the whole list of the reasons for conversion's rejection here.
- Not found
If conversion does not exist on Advertiser's end, it can be marked as 'not found'. You can apply the same status for the conversions that have been imported to your system by mistake or have been made as test conversions if needed.
If a conversion is marked as 'hold' , it means that a payment decision is put 'on hold' and paid for at a certain amount of time. This time can be set and managed in the offer's settings: Postbacks - > Hold period. In the 'Hold period' field, you can set a number of days after which the conversion will be automatically approved and paid for.
How to receive a conversion only in a specific status?
A conversion can be received in a specific status if it is forcibly sent via a postback in the related parameter.
To send a specific status forcibly via a postback, you should use parameter '&status=' for S2S integration or '&afstatus=' for Pixel Integration.
All the statuses in Affise have system values:
- 1 for Approved status
- 2 for Pending status
- 3 for Declined status
- 4 for Not found status
- 5 for Hold status
That's why if you'd like to receive all the conversions only in 'pending' status, you should add '&status=' parameter to your Affise postback which is set on Advertiser's side and a system value (a digit) for a specific status:
Right now we support the following samples of the default Admin domain, which is used in Affise Postback URL:
By receiving such a postback, you'll forcibly get the conversions in pending (2) status.
