Batch integration with AppsFlyer

  • Advertisers
  • Developers

Introduction

Batch, one of AppsFlyer integrated partners, is an app analytics, marketing automation and mobile CRM platform. Batch allows advertisers to maximize user engagement while offering personalized user experience. Batch's advanced user engagement platform lets you communicate with your smartphone users in a more personalized way, reduce your churn and boost your app ROI.

AppsFlyer and Batch combined can help the advertiser to further customize user experience and engagement based on user journey. This means that the advertiser can send specific in-app messages and push notifications based on attribution data such as media source and campaign.

Integrating Batch and AppsFlyer is simple and straightforward.

 Important!

Some media sources restrict sharing data with 3rd parties. AppsFlyer cannot share user level data of users acquired through these media sources with 3rd party platforms or services. All installs from such media sources are therefore sent as organic.

Integrating Batch and AppsFlyer

Setting customer user ID

In order for Batch to be able to match data from AppsFlyer with its own data, the advertiser must provide the same customer user ID to both. The customer user id is set in the SDK.

It's important that you put a real customer user ID, and not a placeholder value. A real customer user ID is a user ID that you use to identify your customers in your own systems.
