When advertisers register in our platform, they establish their own policies regarding affiliate promotion, which could include stipulations about promoting through search engines. Every affiliate who enrolled in those programs is required to follow and respect the program's policies!
In 2Performant there is only one restriction regarding AdWords campaigns: affiliates shall not bid in Google AdWords or any other search advertising platform on keywords containing the Advertisers’ brands (or variations) or the Advertisers’ domain names (or variations). In this way, these terms shall always be listed as negative keywords.
For promoting through Google AdWords, first you will need an affiliate link of the program you wish to promote. Once the link is generated, it's added in the tracking template field from the Ad URL options (advanced) section.
Don’t be frightened about the error! Even though the error appears when you press the Test button (Final URL mismatch), the ad will be saved and will work properly. This error message occurs because there is a difference between the Final URL and tracking template URL. But you don’t need to worry!
Your only concern is to properly optimize your campaigns so that you will generate as much conversions as possible and be profitable in your actions!
