TikTok SKAdNetwork

View SKAdNetwork data in Branch for your TikTok For Business Campaigns.

Overview

The introduction of iOS 14.5 came with the rise of SKAdNetwork (SKAN) which had industry-wide impacts on the mobile measurement and attribution ecosystem. As such, TikTok For Business will work similarly to most non-self-attribution networks when it comes to SKAdNetwork campaigns.

How does it work?

The Branch SDK can be used to manage all calls to SKAN. Once TikTok For Business is integrated and authenticated with Branch and the SDK is tracking events, TikTok For Business will forward individual SKAN postbacks to Branch.

3. Assign Conversion Values to Events

📘

Custom Events

Custom Events need to be mapped in the TikTok For Business Events Config so Branch can share the conversion value with TikTok.

  • In the SKAdNetwork Config section of the Branch dashboard, select all app events you want Branch to send to Apple for attribution.
  • You may optionally select a Customer Event Alias and/or a Revenue Range to further distinguish the conversion value.
  • Assign unique values to each event (Apple accepts any number from 0 to 63) that represent their level of importance to you, where 63 is the highest priority and 0 is the lowest priority. Apple will always use the event with the highest priority, regardless if an event with a lower priority was tracked afterward.

Revenue Range Guidance

  • Revenue range is available for all Commerce Events where revenue is available on the event (Purchase, Add to Cart, Add to Wishlist, View Cart, Initiate Purchase, Add Payment Info, Click Ad, View Ad, Reserve, Spend Credits).
  • Revenue must be entered as USD on the dashboard. Branch will convert revenue with different currencies on events to USD.
  • Revenue ranges must not overlap for the same event (Ex: 1-100, 50-150).
  • Lower Bound Revenue is inclusive, Upper Bound Revenue is exclusive.
  • While not necessary, it is recommended to include both a lower + upper bound on every event.
