Setting up auto-verification via XML

  • Mise à jour

Read about the verification and its types in this article.

To set up an auto-verification via XML, you need to create an XML file with a set of data described below and provide specialists of the Admitad Affiliate tracking department with the link to this file. They will check whether the file structure is correct, statuses and orders amounts are transferred without mistakes, make the necessary settings and inform you about the result.

id="Confidentiality" name="Confidentiality">Confidentiality

To hide the file from outsiders, we suggest that you either use HTTP Basic authorization to access the file (recommended) or just encrypt the name of the file, for example: http://myshop.ru/23dvgdsfkl4tkerlgsfd.xml

Update frequency

You must update the file at least once a day so that the tracking department can compare it with Admitad Affiliate data.

Description

We recommend storing the action data for 3 months.

Namespaces are required, the namespace of a root element must be xmlns=”http://admitad.com/payments-revision”.

The Payments root element may contain any number of Payment elements. Every Payment must have two obligatory child elements: OrderID and Status. Non-obligatory elements are OrderAmount and Reward, they are required, if the order amount or reward amount has been changed. Another non-obligatory element is Comment that is used to explain why you declined the order.

An order can be declined, if:

  • The order was cancelled,
  • The order was refused,
  • The order was returned,
  • The order was not purchased,
  • Data are filled out incorrectly.

Note that:

  • Names of all elements are case sensitive;
  • The following tags are not allowed:
    <OrderAmount>None</OrderAmount> — noncompliance with the value type;
    <Comment/> — empty tags.

Example of the file contents

Example 1:

If you want only to confirm or decline actions, the file must contain the following information:

Parameter Description
OrderID Order number
Status Status of an order (1 – confirmed, 2 – declined)
Comment In this parameter you can write the reason for declining an order (up to 30 characters)
<Payments xmlns=”http://admitad.com/payments-revision”>
<Payment>
<OrderID>123456</OrderID>
<Status>2</Status>
<Comment>Returned</Comment>
</Payment>
</Payments>

Example 2:

If you want to confirm actions and change the order amount so that the system recalculates the publishers’ reward itself, it is necessary to preliminarily agree on this setting with the tracking department. The setting is used only in programs with percent rates.

Required parameters:

Parameter Description
OrderID Order number
Status Status of an order (1 – confirmed, 2 – declined)
Order amount Amount of an order (a decimal non-negative number with a period separator)
<Payments xmlns=”http://admitad.com/payments-revision”>
<Payment>
<OrderID>123456</OrderID>
<OrderAmount>1000</OrderAmount>
<Status>1</Status>
</Payment>
</Payments>

Example 3:

If you want to change the publishers' rewards, you should preliminarily agree this setting with the tracking department.

Required parameters:

Parameter Description
OrderID Order number
Status Status of an order (1 – confirmed, 2 – declined)
Reward Reward of a publisher (a decimal non-negative number with a period separator)
<Payments xmlns=”http://admitad.com/payments-revision”>
<Payment>
<OrderID>123456</OrderID>
<OrderAmount>1000</OrderAmount>
<Reward>100</Reward>
<Status>1</Status>
</Payment>
</Payments>

Obtaining information on pending orders from Admitad Affiliate

You can ask an Admitad Affiliate specialist to provide you with a link for an XML file where you can obtain information on pending actions.

Example of a link:
https://www.admitad.com/sid103584/ru/advertiser/advcampaign/5441/payments/xml_export/?uid=rksNfWrTIQesLvZ

If you want to get information about the actions performed within a certain period, you can add the following parameters to the link:

start-date – lower bound of a period in ISO date format (for example, 2014-01-01)
end-date – upper bound of a period in ISO date format (for example, 2014-01-31)

Then the link will look like
https://www.admitad.com/sid103584/ru/advertiser/advcampaign/5441/payments/xml_export/?uid=rksNfWrTIQesLvZ
&start-date=2014-01-01&end-date=2014-01-31

You can use this information to verify orders statuses for certain actions and then send them to the Admitad Affiliate side in the auto-verification file.
