ADVANCED: This section applies to affiliates that SMS or host approved forms on their own sites.
Most affiliates host ads that link to OfferForge advertisers landing pages, where the consumer completes the form. Affiliates who engage in SMS marketing, database marketing or host their own approved lead generation forms are able to post leads directly to OfferForge. This is particularly useful as it removes the requirement to manually capture or batch upload leads and ensures that fresh, hot leads are instantly transmitted to advertisers. OfferForge maintains the lead management infrastructure to capture leads, match them to buyers and sell the leads at the best price for affiliates.
This document explains the process for getting approved, set up and running using our Lead Post APIs’.
It is important to note, you need to be approved for each offer that is set up prior to sending API’s.
Please reach out to our team to get approved.
Once logged in, you will be welcomed by the Affiliate Portal Dashboard. Select the OFFERS link on the left-hand side. Once you are in the OFFERS page, you can select the HLF offer you are interested in running.
Email your Account Manager and ask for the posting details for the offers you would like to post leads to.
Your Account Manager will then send you via email your posting details for the offer you requested.

- If it is a SMS offer, the sms_response you have received from your user must be sent to us via the sms_response parameter within in the posting details you received from your Account Manager
Once your form has been submitted to the ‘Thank you’ page, you can use something similar to the PHP example provided:
- DO NOT let your form submit to the URL received within in your posting details, for the ‘Thank you’ page your user will receive will be the XML response our system generates for lead submission.
