Why do I need Server-side conversion feed?
With regards to Facebook, the issue of "Signal Loss" arises. The reliability of browsers for consistent conversion tracking is diminishing due to certain factors such as the 7-day expiration of cookies on browsers (e.g., Safari) and the default blocking feature of all tracking by browsers.
Moreover, the impact of iOS14 emphasizes the need for accurate measurement of the 8 conversion events (more details below).
The usage of AdBlockers is on the rise, with estimates suggesting that around 27% of users have enabled ad blocking.
So Facebook conversion API is another way to send back to Facebook, in parallel with Pixel. The CAPI will help you to fix critical tracking errors.
What data is transferred?
The conversion API supports all of your convesion events. By default Attribuly supports all the standard event as below:
