The server is then able to detect whether a user has been part of an affiliate tracking process or not and a conversion is created if at least one contributor is found.
Conversion Tag must be embedded on the conversion confirmation pages of your web site: order confirmation pages / thank you pages…
Different types of Tags are available to better match your needs. You must create one conversion Tag for each existing rules (i.e. KEY). If required you can add a fall-back Tag by using the JS Tag and iframe Tag together.
