How to add publishers

How To's
  1. Go to Publishers. Create a Publisher
  2. Specify all the necessary details
  3. Be attentive while setting email. It is used for notifications and for logging into the platform.
  4. Sometimes there is no Zipcode or other parts of an address and we know that users can add false data here. You must know that such fields as: Address, City, State, Country, and Zipcode are shown in publishers’ invoices.
  5. Set Active status. Otherwise, a new publisher won’t have an access.
  6. Autoapprove feature. If there is set Enabled, it approves all offers which are requested by publisher except sensitive. If Disabled, the publisher has to wait for your approval upon every offer.
  7. Set payment terms. They affect the frequency of invoices generation.
  8. Enter a password twice. We recommend to use strong passwords that consist of 8 characters minimum and contain letters, digits, and special symbols.

Optional Fields:

  1. Is own publisher. Set Yes for direct publishers and No for networks and resellers.
  2. Affiliate Source. Set type of traffic here, if necessary.
  3. Skip affiliate. Use only if you need to skip any of the publisher’s sources.
  4. Anti fraud. Set Yes if you want to check all conversions sent by the publisher with anti fraud.
  5. Bad Traf. Set Yes if a publisher has a dubious traffic source.
  6. Block backtraffic. Specifically for publishers who usually run superlink, but temporarily want to stop redirects for some reason.
  7. IP Whitelist. Set a list of IPs that a publisher uses to enter the platform.
  8. Postback URL. Set a main postback, which is usually provided by a publisher. Leave this field empty, if a publisher doesn’t have his tracking system.

  2. Event postback URL. Allows firing a conversion for an event. It’s better to add as much event postbacks, as many additional goals you have on the specific offer.

  6. Offer request left (for today). Use if you need to set a different number of attempts for today. If offer request limit is 300 and daily is 30, the system will allow 30 attempts during 10 days and then block a publisher.
  7. Notes. Specific data about a publisher: it is visible only to managers.
  8. Invoice notes. Specific data is added to all publisher’s invoices (for example – “App promotion”). Don’t set a specific month here.
