Adding Custom Partners
If you’re running an internal campaign or working with a new partner that does not have an official integration, then you can manually set up the partner in Branch. Plus, first time Branch users can find it helpful to create an custom test partner for the purposes of implementing the SDK or testing attribution initially.
Partners can email firstname.lastname@example.org to become an integrated partner.
Adding a Custom Partner¶
To manually add a custom partner in your Branch dashboard:
- In the left-hand navigation, under Channels & Links, click on Ads and then Partner Management.
- On the Partner Management page, under More Ad Partners, click Add Custom Partner.
- In the Add New Custom Partner modal, provide a clearly identifiable name.
- Click Save and Enable.
To continue setting up your new custom partner, you can set up postback URLs and attribution windows. These are links used to measure ad displays and notify your partner of conversions, respectively.
Click the Add New Postback button at the bottom of the screen.
A modal will appear with Branch default events, as well as any commerce or custom events you've set up. Select an event, enter a postback URL if you're asked to, and click Save. This will be the event that triggers your new postback.
You can edit your attribution windows at the partner level, if your partner requires it. This is recommended when you enable networks like Facebook and Google, who may have different windows for installs. With this, you can preserve your Account Level Attribution Windows, as well.
