Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve launched the VigLink Transaction Reporting API! We know a top priority for our publishers is to better understand the entire click-to-purchase funnel. With this API, we’re now able to tie each click to:
- Page Title (Best Phones of 2018)
- Anchor Text (iPhone 10)
- Page URL (www.yoursite.com/bestphones2018)
- Revenue generated
- Product(s) purchased, behavior once readers leave your site (iPhone 10, AirPod Headphones)
This Transaction Reporting API helps all publishers, from content to coupon and cash-back sites, reconcile their earnings with their clicks. It also allows publishers to attribute revenue to users by assigning a specific CUID or SubID to each outbound click from the Links API and then searching for those same fields in the Transaction Reporting API.
For a more comprehensive overview of the API, please watch our video walkthrough! We’ve also created a support article that teaches you how to test our APIs. With no coding experience, you’re able to test and see exactly what information will be provided, the different filters or parameters you can use, and the results.
