TradeDoubler has a non standard tracking URL format which requires a slightly different setup.

Add an affiliate network

1. Remove the event_id querystring from the "left drop" down

2. Add an offer + add CPL and CPS conversion steps
3. Add an offer link - This is where things get a little different.

Regular tracking link provided by TradeDoubler

http://clkuk.tradedoubler.com/click?p(246285)a(2956118)g(21709252)

add epi({event_id}) at the end of the url

http://clkuk.tradedoubler.com/click?p(246285)a(2956118)g(21709252)epi({event_id})

Deep Link - Make sure the url variable is at the end of the tracking link

http://clkuk.tradedoubler.com/click?p(702)a(407311)g(15036)epi({event_id})url(http://tradedoubler.com/about-us)


Tracking links with standard query strings

https://clk.tradedoubler.com/click?p=246545&a=2479486&g=23454304&epi={event_id}


In all those cases, TrackingDesk will automatically replace {event_id} with an event_id value.
