Offer18 - Zapier - Google Ads

For Offer18, the integration between Offer18 and Google Ads plays a crucial role in tracking conversions. While it's relatively straightforward to receive conversion data on Offer18 from Google Ads, the process of sending conversions back to Google Ads often involves manual steps.

To automate this bidirectional flow of conversion data, you can leverage Zapier as an intermediary tool. Zapier extends the capabilities of Offer18's integration with Google Ads, enabling the automatic transmission of conversion data. This automation not only streamlines your workflow but also ensures a seamless exchange of critical information between Offer18 and Google Ads, enhancing the efficiency of your marketing efforts.

Integration Flow

  1. Google Click ID must be sent to Offer18. This is essential to provide Google Ads with conversion data based on click ID.

  2. Next, you configure offline conversion actions in Google Ads so that conversions based on Google click ID are later imported automatically. This configuration enables Zapier to be connected to Google Ads.

  3. On Offer18, the Zapier webhook is used as an affiliate postback. This allows the transfer of Offer18 conversions to Zapier. You also configure Google Ads to get offline conversions.

  4. The Zapier webhook launches after receiving a postback to Offer18, and Google Ads receives the conversion data.
