Combining the dataset from Singular and Qonversion allows you instant insights into how much subscription revenue you earn from each ad creative asset as well as the ROAS in one dashboard.

In this article, we’ll take a deeper look at how to enrich Singular’s data with in-app subscription events to see the whole picture of your subscription ad performance. 

Set up SDKs to Enrich Creative Analytics with subscription events

Qonversion enriches Singular account with all revenue events – including in-app purchases, trial conversions, renewals, and refunds, even without an app open. To send in-app subscription events, follow next steps:

  1. Make sure you have Singular SDK installed.
  2. Check whether you have Qonversion SDK in place.
  3. For accurate data tracking, Qonversion SDK collects platform-related device attributes, such as IDFA, IDFV, ASID, AIFA, and ANDI. However, IDFA and ASID are not available by default. At the same time, not connecting these data sets can cause a decrease in Singular attribution quality.
  4. Learn more about how to make IDFA available for Qonversion
  5. Learn more about how to make ASID available for Qonversion
