PartnerStack connects to key events in your business to automatically incentivize and reward your partners. By fingerprinting traffic from your partners, PartnerStack's technology identifies and rewards the people and organizations growing your business.
We are excited to start your integration!
The first step is to identify milestones in your customer journey that you want to track or reward. Offers and Rewards can be set up in your dashboard, but as part of the integration you'll need to:
Create integrations that send us basic customer information when a new customer signs up on your website, so these sign-ups can be attributed to the partner who referred them.
Connect events that allow us to track when customers pay for products on your website. Partners can be rewarded for this as per your program's reward structure.
Start by breaking down your sign up and transaction flow
Integrating with PartnerStack is a simple process when you understand your program and reward configurations. Given the unique needs of your business, you may integrate with some or many of our features. Please read this page first to understand the key elements that go into a successful integration.
To make your integration quick and easy we have an array of options for you to be able to send sign-up events and transactions to us. We've visualized some of these options in the flow diagram below:
Whenever a partner shares their referral link, PartnerStackJS can be used to automatically create a first-party tracking cookie that stores a tracking cookie representing the partner's partner key - a unique identifier that identifies partners in your platform. PartnerStackJS gives you access to functions you can implement to capture sign-up data to send automatically to PartnerStack, properly attributing the partner.
Whenever you send us customer sign-up information, you'll need to specify a customer key -- this can be anything that uniquely identifies customers on your platform. Many times this is an email, but can also be something like an account ID.
To learn more about sending customer sign-up information:
With a PartnerStack customer created, there are an array of options available to send us PartnerStack data when a key business event (such as a customer making a purchase on your platform) occurs.
When using these webhooks, we sync another field to the customer record known as the provider key, which is an identifier for how the customer is represented on your billing platform.
The PartnerStack API is built with RESTful principles and allows the greatest flexibility for your integration. Get started with the PartnerStack API primer, or just dive straight into the reference materials.
You're also able to manually import a CSV file containing transactions using our Universal Importer
