CJ Affiliates (Commission Junction) Postback URL

Commission Junction Postback URL was once called server to server tracking, but this feature has been deprecated in 2019. The rumor says that some affiliates still have access to the postback url, but it is unclear whether this is true or not.

For this reason, AnyTrack has integrated CJ Affiliates through their API.

As outlined in the affiliate link tracking section, the AnyTrack Tag will automatically identify affiliate links on your site, according to two criteria:

  1. If you've published your links directly on your site (not behind any link redirects)

  2. According to a link attribute called data-tracking-group="cj"
