How to Set Up Voluum via Elevar Server-Side Destination

Follow this step by step guide to launching your Voluum API integration!

Prerequisites

Before you can enable your Voluum API Destination, you will need to:

🚧

Update Voluum links to pass the Click ID with a "vlmcid" query parameter.

Our integration looks for a click ID value of "vlmcid" and not "cid". Please update your links to pass vlmcid={clickid} so that our server events can send Voluum the associated click ID with a purchase event.
