Integrating Refersion with your Uscreen account is a quick way to set up affiliates and referral programs. Refersion is compatible with Stripe, Uscreen Payment Gateway, and PayPal transactions.

Refersion does not work with our legacy themes. If you are using an old theme, you will be required to migrate to a new theme to use this integration. You will know if you are on an older version of our platform if you see the below message when you visit your Themes page.

Make sure you've set up your affiliate tracking in order to properly track data sent by Uscreen. You will likely want to set up SKUs. Here's Refersion's documentation on SKUs.

Commonly Asked Questions

1. How can I obtain SKUs for products for affiliate tracking?

The SKU is constructed of the following two parts: {content_id OR offer_id}-{product type}, with content_id or offer_id being an integer and product type being a string.

The {content_id} can be obtained from the checkout process. Proceed to checkout the content as a non-signed in user. From there, look in the url bar for something like this ".../orders/checkout?c=343365" as that would be the numbers you want to use for your {content_id}.

If you are tracking a video, live event, or collection, the product type will be Content. If you are tracking a subscription or bundle, the product type will be Offer.

For a subscription, you can get the {offer_id} from the checkout process. Proceed to checkout the content as a non-signed in user. From there, look in the url bar for something like this ".../orders/customer_info?o=24229" as that would be the numbers you want to use for your {offer_id}.

It's possible that if you have content assigned to be either a one-time purchase or part of a subscription, that you need to click on the respective subscription, then click on Continue, to see the subscription's offer id in the url. This might look something like this ".../orders/customer_info?o=24229&c=343365", in which case, you still want the number behind the "o=..." for the {offer_id}.

Taking an example {content_id} from one of the above examples for a video, the SKU would look like this:

343365-Content

For a subscription or bundle, the SKU will look similar to this:

24229-Offer

2. When is conversion data sent to Refersion?

Data is sent to Refersion upon a successful transaction. This includes a trial with a $0.00 price associated to the transaction, transactions with a price greater than $0.00, and transactions where a coupon code has been applied - whether the total after discount is $0.00 or greater. If you have a subscription, and you are crediting the affiliate for the recurring orders, recurring orders will also be sent to Refersion for affiliate crediting.
