Commerce Advertising, also known as retail media advertising or e-commerce advertising, refers to a type of advertising that takes place within digital shopping environments or e-commerce platforms. This form of advertising reaches consumers at the point of purchase, effectively integrating promotional content with the shopping experience. The main goal of Commerce Advertising is to influence consumer decisions and drive sales by showcasing products or services directly to potential buyers as they browse or search for items to purchase.

yk_tag: this value corresponds to your click_id and you will receive it back in the commission end point of our Reporting API.
There can be a delay due to the type of CPA campaign you are running. For example, a travel campaign's commission can take a while to be confirmed, you should make sure you are considering the "open" commissions count and amount.
In other cases, some transactions are not tracked properly due to parameters mapping either on our advertiser's side or inside your own system (in this case make sure to refer to our online documentation and send your questions to your dedicated Account Manager).
You can find it in the menu of your publisher dashboard as well as in this section of our Developer Center "S2S Tracking".
In our Reporting API's "/commision" end-point (find the documentation here) you can simply use the filter by using the "modified_date" DateType filter in order to pull all the commission data that of the commissions that have been updated within the defined time range. The DateType filter also has a "sales_date" option which can choose to filter your commissions by their sale date.
Every single commission is now mapped to a single sub_id called "
yk_tag". Hence no more need for a sub_id report anymore. We will also launch early Q3 (2023), a site_id filter for the Commissions report of the Reporting API.
You can access the next page of your Reporting API V3 response by using the url at the top of the first response qualified as "next". Every page will have a "next" url for you to access the following one.
We recommend our Advertiser API. It will enable you to check available campaigns and monetize them with our Redirect API. Featuring enhanced flexibility, allowing you to tailor solutions and program access to our range of data.
You don't need to apply for anything. All merchants you are getting via API you are allowed to promote.
The swagger tool is only for documentation and doesn’t generate the full data-set. The user needs to use an API client (ex. Insomnia).
The value of the page size corresponds to the number of unique commissions that will be displayed in one page.
For instance, if "page size=1000" this means there is 1000 commissions with all its data points within the page you are looking at.
Unfortunately not, as employing pagination aligns with the industry standard for handling extensive datasets. This limitation is primarily technical, as any alternative approach would lead to significant maintenance and hardware expenses.
We only show active campaigns. Inactive campaigns disappear from the Advertiser API.
The "commission" field shows the value of your commission amount.
In the Reporting API only as it contains the commission data for specific campaigns.
In the Advertiser API only as it contains all campaign related data.
You can check any campaigns with our Advertiser API by using the parameter "
q=". Alternatively, in the Advertiser API Json version you will get the 10 days average ecpc.
Due to the high amount of advertisers in our network (+ 45.000) it is almost impossible for us to display them all in our dashboard. However, you can review them using our Yieldshare tool, which indicates campaign availability. Alternatively, the most comprehensive approach is to use our Advertiser API to find any specific campaigns by using the parameter "
Due to the high amount of advertisers in our network (+ 45.000) it is almost impossible for us to provide a precise rate for one. However, you may see some CPA or CPC rates in our Advertiser API that correspond to the past 10 days average performance of a given campaign. This rate offers a general notion of potential earnings but should not be regarded as a fixed and definitive figure.
You earn a commission on every sale (CPA) or click (CPC) that is generated through your website. YieldKit gives you a percentage that varies on the earned commission for the transaction amount without taxes and shipping.
PayPal, SWIFT, and Bank transfer.
You can set it up in your Dashboard menu > 'Account' > 'Payment Information'.
Yes, you get a payment report for each payment transfer. We send you your reports via email and you can also download them from your Publisher account. In your account settings you can define your tax circumstances.
YieldKit offers three payment methods:
SEPA (Europe-based accounts).
Registered PayPal email address. Alternatively you can enter a PayPal account in your Dashboard and we would send the payout automatically.
YieldKit Payments are issued the 3rd working day of the month. We send you the cleared account balance, provided it is over 30.00/$/€/£. After the Payment is issued, payment will be received within 7 business days. If it’s under 30.00/$/€/£, we will carry over your balance to the next month and then send a payment out as soon as you surpass this minimum threshold.
The time it takes for a commission payment to be cleared depends on the clearance of the advertiser. The commissions displayed in your dashboard have different states:
Open: The transaction got tracked. The Advertiser has to approve the commission for it now.
Confirmed: The advertiser already approved this commissions.
Rejected: The advertiser cancelled the commission for the transaction. This can be based on different reasons:
The whole transaction was cancelled by the user.
The advertiser or our system detected fraudulent clicks.
In general advertisers have the right to cancel a commission for up to two months after the transaction is made.
To qualify for SWIFT payments, you will need to meet our 500 Euro threshold. Due to the ongoing situation with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we are unable to process bank transfers to Russian banks.
In order to change your payment details such as your PayPal e-mail address or bank account, you must make those changes in your account, which you can find here.
We have both feeds mixed.
The reason we mixed them is because we optimize in a way that you will always get the campaign with the best eCPC, regardless of if it is CPC or CPA campaign.
This information cannot be found in the dashboard. However we can add this information in your Advertiser API, where you will find an extra column with this info (CPA or CPC). Please just send us a request so we can add it on our backend. We can also remove the CPC feed if you prefer to make sure that all campaigns will be CPA.
