The article covers the following topics:
The demand offers section contains all offers that have participated in the sync process ever. Here you can find all details about the certain offer, including fully prepared offer tracking URL, offer ID in Affise, ID of the Campaign responsible for this offer pulling to Affise, and so on. You also can see whether the offer is valid or not/imported from Advertisers’ feed or not.
The list of Demand offers
Upon getting to the Demand offers section you can choose the filter settings and click on the 'Search' button,
then you will see:
- Offer ID: ID of the offer on the Advertiser side
- Title: title of the offer on the Advertiser side. A green tick nearby means the offer is valid.
- Network: demand source, which this offer belongs to
- Imported form feed: whether the offer is imported from Advertiser's API feed or not
- Payment mode: fixed or percent.
- Payout: the sum of money for a conversion that is paid to you by the Advertiser.
When creating a new Campaign, Payout % in the Default values section is calculated out of the figure that you see in the Payout column in the Demand offers section. The same is about Campaign Filters section: Payout Min and Payout Max are taken from the Payout column in the Demand offer section. See the guide on a New Campaign setup to find more information.
Normally offer has the green tick (it is valid), and it is imported from feed - then it is prepared to be pulled to Affise. But there are two cases when you can see another situation:
- Offer has the green tick, but it is not imported from the feed:
It means CPAPI has not got the offer in the Advertiser's feed for the last 2 hours. The advertiser did not pass this offer via API.
If the offer participated in sync process before, but then it disappeared from the Advertiser's feed, it will be paused in Affise in 2 hours.
2. Offer is highlighted red, it has a red cross (it can be either imported from feed or not imported):
It means the offer is invalid. You can click on it and see the error that identifies a certain error.
Possible errors are:
- Currency is not valid: the payouts of the offer contain the currency, which is not active in your Affise account. You need to make it active (to turn it on). Follow this guide to do that.
- Url cannot be blank: the Advertiser did not pass the offer tracking URL or did it in the incorrect format.
- Version is invalid: the Advertiser passed such an OS version that does not exist actually (it has invalid numbers/symbols, etc.)
- Several errors in a bunch. Means payouts are absent in the offer at all.
- Revenue cannot be blank
- The total cannot be blank
- Currency cannot be blank
- Type cannot be blank
An offer should have the following fields filled in to be considered as valid:
- Advertiser tracking URL
- Payout (at least one)
- Currency (should meet the list of active currencies in the Admin panel in Affise).
How to get offer details?
To get offer details, click on the offer. You will see the table:
- Campaign ID: ID of the Campaign responsible for pulling this offer to Affise. If you see several IDs there, it means several Campaigns pull the offer to Affise. Thus it will be duplicated there and have different IDs.
- Offer ID in Affise: the ID the offer has in Affise. If no ID is set up here - it means the offer has not been pulled to Affise yet. If you see several IDs there, it means several Campaigns pull the offer to Affise.
- Deleted at: date and time when CPAPI tried to pull the offer to Affise but found out the offer was deleted. It is not the date/time of the actual offer deleting in Affise.
If you delete the offer in Affise, it will never participate in sync process in frames of its Campaign.
- Updated At: date and time when CPAPI brought the offer from the Advertiser to CPAPI last time.
- Url: the offer tracking URL, which is fully prepared to be used under settings on the relevant Demand Source edit page.
At the bottom of the Offer view page, you can see the 'Show original offer' button. Upon clicking on it, you will see the offer in a way how it looks like in the Advertiser's feed by the moment when CPAPI brought an offer from the Advertiser to CPAPI last time.
