How to create a fake conversion to test Traffic Source postback

Sometimes it may be required to create a fake conversion in order to check if the integration with Traffic Source has been established correctly before starting a real campaign.

To do this follow the steps below: 

1. Generate a test click from your Traffic Source with a Campaign Click URL - so we have the real click_id data available.
(or send couple of live clicks)

2. Check logs to find that clicks. Choose one and copy it:

3. Paste into browser this{replace_me_with_click_id_from_logs}
Replace the {replace_me_with_click_id_from_logs} part with the Click ID from point 2 to generate a test conversion for this click id. 

4. Check your Traffic Source for the conversion.


Please note that a fake conversion can be created for testing a postback with the Traffic Source only. If you need to test a postback with your Affiliate Network, please contact your Network Account Manager for assistance. Some Networks have an option for postback testing in the settings.
