So you’re making strides with your affiliate program — perfect. But how do you keep track of your affiliate campaign performance? You need an affiliate tracking platform with reporting features compatible with your business platforms.
Maybe you’re just starting out, or you’re a few years in. Either way, you’re seeing more traffic sources, conversions, and sales through your lovely affiliate partners.
Maybe you’re enamored with one suave affiliate tracking tool’s advanced features and detailed reports. But it doesn’t integrate with WooCommerce, your eCommerce platform. And, it has poor customer service reviews — womp, womp.
Newsflash: the most well-known platform still might not meet your business needs.

So, what platforms can Tapfiliate integrate with? Our single platform sees no limits.
Did we lose you at REST API?
We’ll help you fill in the blanks and show you the baseline for affiliate marketing tracking software platforms with integrations.
API stands for “application programming interface.” REST stands for “representational state transfer.” Huh?
The REST(ful) API speaks to an interface where two computer systems can exchange information with each other.
What does that exchange look like? Whatever you like — it’s extremely customizable.
In other words? You can use the REST API to integrate your brand with Tapfiliate on most platforms. For example, brands may use the REST API to request accurate tracking for each of their partners’ sales (influencers, affiliates, referrals) with Tapfiliate.
We’ve seen brands with more complex affiliate marketing programs succeed with the REST API.
One client, MDHearingAid, couldn’t find an affiliate marketing tool that met their technical needs and affiliate expectations. They were clunky, expensive, and tedious.
So, the brand was scrambling to find a solution for the following:
The superbly customizable REST API helped MDHearingAid track conversions and increased their affiliate signups.
But if you’re tech-averse, you might need a developer’s technical knowledge and support to get started.
Here are a few steps to integrate with the REST API:
These are just a few basics. For the complete guide, check out our REST API integration guide.
Now, let’s talk about payment processors. Tapfiliate has innate integrations with most of them, so you won’t need the REST API each time.
You likely use a payment platform or shopping cart to sell your products and services. Once you launch your affiliate program, connecting the two entities is vital so you don’t miss even one dollar.
Millions of brands, big or small, use Stripe as a payment platform. If you’re one of them, Tapfiliate’s Stripe integration will track every sale in your affiliate empire.
Here are two ways to track payments:
Now, how is the Stripe integration helpful if you can track sales through the platform separately?
Well, you’re paying based on performance. You shouldn’t still pay an affiliate commission if a customer returns a product. The same goes for disputes. Tapfiliate’s Stripe integration manages all these automatically, so you don’t have to.

This isn’t a task for the new coder — you’ll need a developer to sort out each conversion feature, from percentage-based and lifetime commissions to sign-ups.
