Getting Started with Incent / Rewarded Campaigns

Incent installs are actually motivated install i.e the user who install the advertiser's app get incentive for doing that and hence cost per acquisition is very low as compared to Non-Incent.

Based on our experience, we have noticed that Incent installs work good for Games comparatively and hence very much recommended for games. The main advantage of Incent install is that it's really very cost effective, Incent install will cost you about $0.1 per conversion whereas Non-Incent would cost you $1 and hence Incent installs are 10 times cheaper comparatively but give similar or better results generally.

Overview of Campaign Types (Incent):-


CPC (Cost per Install)

  • Standard:
    Incent CPC campaigns charge per rewarded click, prompting users to install your app to receive their rewards. Since no external SDK or tracking is required, these campaigns can start instantly without any setup. The expected installation rate varies, but is usually around 40%-80% thanks to our sophisticated fraud detection.

CPI (Cost per Install)

  • Standard:
    In this type of rewarded install, users are going to download and install your app in return for a reward. Depending on the selected tracking method users will also open the app at least once. 
  • High Retention:
    High Retention campaigns require users to keep your app for 3 days. Any user who uninstalls sooner won't count as conversion, so the total number of installs delivered will be above your campaign volume. HR campaigns come with extensive statistics and don't require any SDK.
