Depending on what type of affiliate you are, you have different number and flexibility of options of integration with Affbay.
Naturally, API gives you the biggest flexibility in choice of methods and ways to send gathered contacts to our network.
This is the simplest and easiest method of integration. You're pretty much limited to generation of new campaigns where
you can customize the set of landing pages and, where desired, pre-landing pages.
Using API integration you have the full flexibility and freedom of making the integration in your own way. Options are really unlimited,
therefore we would like to present few most popular examples to give you some inspiration.

This is a basic and the most popular integration model. You're using CDN::assets provided by Affbay (landing page, TYP) in full. Modification of the provided
landing page template is usually limited to changing the token field value being replaced with your API token and filling-in the product field, if not
provided (usually our templates are shared per product basis therefore come with product UUID pre-populated).
In this integration model, as per M1, you use Affbay-provided CDN::assets, however, you set up a post-checkout redirection
to a custom TYP (i.e. hosted by you) via an URL provided along with form data. This model guarantees you the stability with a basic level of customization
and allows you to extended level of conversion tracking, because you control where the user eventually lands after submitting the form and have the
freedom of embedding Facebook Pixel, GA or other tracking methods.
The most popular integration model for our intermediate partners. This solution is a fully custom landing page, a form connected directly to our API endpoint
(TD;LR: meaning the form's ACTION parameter is set to Affbay's API /make/contact endpoint and METHOD is set to POST) and utilising custom TYP post-checkout
redirection from M2, allowing you to not only have the flexibility on post-checkout side of the process, but also a full control and liberty of making
the landing page your visitors will see completely custom and tailored to yours and your visitors specific needs.
One of the most advanced and flexible integration models imaginable. In this case, you're utilising a custom landing page, but instead of setting your
form action to Affbay API endpoint, you use a man-in-the-middle script that intercepts all the data you send via landing page form and handles it accordingly
to your needs, then sending required data via, e.g. cURL, to the API endpoint. Due to amount of options how your data can be processed and what
data can be transferred to your script, it's impossible for us to cover even small part of options and combinations that can be used in this model.
One of the possibilities is to record some extra information about the user, store it within the form, and when submitted, extract it, maybe along with basic
information like visitor's name, email and phone (so the information you'll be sending to Affbay) and store it in your database for monitoring or even re-marketing
purposes, and then send to us a chosen amount of data that exceeds the minimal information we require. Remember we are storing any information you provide and you
are able to view it in your dashboard.
