Conversion value (CV) is a number between 0 and 63, with which ad networks and app owners can get additional info on SKAN conversions. For example, through a range of numbers from 0 - 63, you can set the amount of revenue and track the sequence of in-app events.
MyTracker helps you collect data on the conversion value and evaluate the effectiveness of your iOS 14+ ad campaigns.
Note that the time to get a postback on the installation increases with each value update. The minimum time will be 24 hours (no value update, the additional timer is set to 0), the maximum time will be 64 days (63 conversion value updates, the additional timer is set to 24 hours).
For the advantages and disadvantages of using conversion value, see The Complete Guide to SKAdNetwork Conversion Value
To collect conversion value, the app developer should support the updateConversionValue method and work with the ad network to develop a scheme for interpreting the numbers 0 - 63.
Here are a few examples of how you can use conversion value. For more details, refer to our The Complete Guide to SKAdNetwork Conversion Value
Apple does not regulate how the numbers 0-63 are interpreted, leaving it up to each application to decide what to pass through the conversion value.
Let's look at a few examples. In some of them, we will represent the numbers 0-63 in binary, that is, written using the two characters 0 and 1
The Conversion value (CV) can be used to pass the revenue received.
Example 1 — Purchase of $1 to $63:
Example 2 — Revenue bandе:
Through the conversion value (CV), you can pass in-app events.
Example 1 — 63 consecutive events:
Example 2 — 6 random events:
If you represent numbers in the binary system, then any decimal number will look like a combination of six ones and zeros. For example, the number 63 is 111111. Each sign can be assigned a separate event: 1 — booking a plane ticket, 1 — canceling a booking, 1 — buying a plane ticket, 1 — returning a plane ticket, 1 — buying an insurance policy, 1 — flight check-in.
Let 1 — the event happened, 0 — did not happen, then:
If you represent a number in the binary system (for example, 56 is 111000) and divide the number into two groups (111-000), then the first three digits can be revenue, and the next three can be events.
For example, if:
