LCC Cookie / LCC Network
The extenstion has an LCC (Last Click Count) functionality, which can be used to deduplicate transactions on other affiliate networks. This setting requires some adjustments in the Daisycon campaign settings and can only be set in consultation with your contact at Daisycon.
Does the amount in the pixel needs to be including or excluding VAT? Indicate your preference in the settings of the VAT field.
You can setup a compensation code based on category-id or a product attribute. With this compensation code your channel manager can setup variable compensations.
Extra 1 - 5
- The conversion pixel can be enriched with extra variables (Extra 1 - Extra 5) such as payment method, shipping method, category-id or product attributes. These extra variables can be used to filter your statistics in the Daisycon interface. With these enriched statistics it is possible to easily optimize your campaign. These fields are not mandatory.
