The Post Back URL configuration allows you to select posting back an order type and/or order actions. The order type selection will allow the Platform to perform a server side posting of your pixels directly to your third party affiliate tracking software such as Linktrust, HasOffers, HitPath, DirectTrack, Cake Marketing, or your own in house solution. If post back URL is enabled, there will be no need to host a pixel on your confirmation page since pixel firing will automatically be done by the Platform. The Post Back URL will allow you to configure what gets posted to your affiliate tracking system from the additional fields that are populated.
To add a new Post Back URL profile, you will need to navigate to Settings > Post Backs, and select 'Create' from the Actions drop-down menu.
