Takeads products are ready-to-use solutions that can help you automate monetization of your platform and earn using the CPA/CPC model.
How Takeads products work
Advertisers listed in the Takeads catalog seek to boost sales and are ready to pay you for leading new customers to them.
After integration with your platform, the selected Takeads product will start processing default (direct) links a user can find when using your platform.
This means that if an advertiser is found in the Takeads catalog for a default link, the selected product will add special tags to such a link, so you could track orders and clicks. These 'converted' links are called affiliate links.
The following conditions are the only requirement for receiving a reward:
- The platform user came to the advertiser's website through an affiliate link and placed an order or bought something.
- The advertiser checked and confirmed that the order was made and did not violate the rules.
Takeads products only process direct links for which corresponding advertisers were found in the Takeads catalog. Takeads products do not process affiliate links. For example, if you already cooperate with an affiliate network and publish affiliate links generated via this network.
Currently, there are three products available on Takeads:
