ITNS (Instant Transaction Notification Service)

The AffiliCon system allows you as a vendor to receive and process information about successful sales and other transactions such as returns fully automatically in real time via Instant Transaction Notification Service (ITNS).

The service offers you a connection solution for any system that can process POST calls.

We already offer ready-to-use and easy-to-configure connections to well-known email marketing systems such as CleverReach, GetResponse, Klick-Tipp and AWeber, to membership management systems such as Digimember or ContentPower and to customer management tools such as Infusionsoft or ONTRAPORT, which can usually be activated with just a few steps in the "Connections" tab in the My area:

However, if you want to control scripts you have written yourself or systems that have not yet been integrated, such as iContact, our classic ITNS connection is the method of choice.

Enter your URL here, behind which the script is located that we are to address.

We hereby send you information to your own system, which can trigger an action selected by you: e.g. create member accesses, block on return and chargeback, add customers to newsletters.

Secret key

Enter a secret key here. The entry is voluntary.

The "Secret key" (secret key) signs the telegram so that it is clear that it comes from us.


You can enter a prefix here.
You can also leave this field blank.

Choose letters and numbers for the prefix.
You can usually use software created for Clickbank if you enter a "c" for the prefix.

Setup on the side of your server

In order to receive the data on your server, you need a POST-enabled script which can be created in PHP, Perl or Ruby, for example.

The feedback to your system after successful payment or refund is done by us via a POST call to the URL you provided, which typically looks like this:

The script that receives and evaluates the data on your server could then look like this:



$empfaenger = $_POST['custemail'];

$betreff = 'Danke!';

$nachricht = 'Hallo '.


', danke, dass Sie mein Produkt gekauft haben!';

$header = 'From:';

mail($empfaenger, $betreff, $nachricht, $header);?>

In addition to the variables directly supported by our system, you can also transfer your own information about the customer or purchase, such as a customer number or a 'tag', by using the GET parameter "custom" with the order link, which we then report back 1:1 via ITNS.

A call to our purchase link would then look as follows:
