Prerequisites

  3. If you are a new TikTok client, you will need to enable unattributed events to be sent in order for your TikTok App ID to be passed to TikTok.

Setup Instructions

1. Partner Configuration

For general instructions for setting up a partner, see the Partner Configuration FAQ

Note: We encourage you to select the Enable Fraud Postbacks checkbox so your partner can receive postback data if there is any fraudulent activity that Singular is blocking for your campaign. Enabling fraud postbacks helps partners prevent fraud in their network.

2. Tracking Link Setup

To generate a tracking link for TikTok For Business:

  1. In your Singular account, go to Attribution > Manage Links and click Create Link.
  2. Under Source Name, select "TikTok For Business".

Partner Data Policies

As a TikTok MMP partner, Singular adheres to the following data handling requirements required by TikTok:

  • Data Retention: TikTok user-level data is removed after 6 months of original attribution.  After 6 months, users attributed to TikTok are treated/marked as "Organic" and reflected as such in both aggregate and user-level reporting in Singular.
