The installation is done in four simple steps:

  3. Connect your website to our system
  4. Activate the integration feature

How to connect your Skimlinks account via our API integration

If you want to integrate all your Skimlinks conversions in Google Analytics, Google Ads, Facebook or Data Studio, you will need to connect your Skimlinks accounts to our platform by providing us with a Client ID, Client Secret and Publisher ID for each of your Skimlinks accounts and a Site ID for each of your registered sites. Those credentials need to be filled in within our data sources page which you can find by following this link: https://app.wecantrack.com/user/data-source/networks/skimlinks/accounts/create

You can give each of the data connections different names and tags which enables you to easily filter your data on account or sub account level.
