Definition conversion's statuses
Conversions can be of 4 statuses in Affise:
- 1 - Approved
- 2 - Pending
- 3 - Declined
- 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.
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
- 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:
By receiving such a postback, you'll forcibly get the conversions in pending (2) status.
