NATS4 offers My Dirty Hobby integration through the Third Party Admin. Third Parties are sites that provide additional content for your members for an additional fee. Adding My Dirty Hobby is a 4 step process, which uses other admins as well.

Third Party Admin

To add My Dirty Hobby to your NATS install, you must first configure it through the Third Party Admin. On the main Third Party Admin page, select "My Dirty Hobby" from the "Setup New Third Party Partner" drop-down menu and click the Add button. Next, click the edit icon for "My Dirty Hobby" and enter your Tracking Code and Default NATS Code (optional).

Configuring My Dirty Hobby in the Third Parties Admin

When you are done configuring these options, click Save.

Next, click on the "Set Fees" icon to set your My Dirty Hobby transaction charges and deduction fees, as well as when/where you want those fees deducted (after affiliate payout, from affiliate payout, and before affiliate payout). Once you have configured these options, click Add.

Sites Admin

The next step to configuring My Dirty Hobby is to add it to the Sites Admin. To do so, go to the sites admin and click the "Add a Site" tab at the top of the page.

On the next page, set your site type to "3rd Party", and give the it a site name, a short name, and set your site launch date. Click the Save Changes button, and navigate back to your Site List.

Next, find your new (My Dirty Hobby) site and click the "Edit" button to configure a tour for your new site. Under "3rd Party," select "MYDIRTYHOBBY" from your drop-down menu. Enter your new site's link domain and enter your My Dirty Hobby Default Additional Path under the "Third Party Partner Details" section.

Editing Your My Dirty Hobby Tour

Default Additional Path

My Dirty Hobby differs from other third party providers in NATS, as you must provide a Default Additional Path instead of a URL under "Third Party Partner Details."

The Default Additional Path allows you to automatically modify your linkcodes and URLs to redirect surfers to certain pages. With this setting, you can append certain pages to affiliate linkcodes.

For example, setting the default additional path as "test.php?" will automatically redirect surfers to<linkcode>, which allows you to use custom pages for your affiliate linkcodes.

Setting a Default Additional Path for My Dirty Hobby

You can also input something like "test.php?page=1" to automatically redirect surfers to other pages as well.

When you are done with the above steps, you will be free to configure the other settings for your site and tour. Once you are done configuring your required fields, click Save Changes.

Programs Admin

To continue configuring My Dirty Hobby, go to the Programs Admin, and create a new disabled program.

Note: You can also create a new enabled program, but we recommend you create a disabled program, as new affiliates will not be automatically enrolled in this program. When you're ready for your affiliates to send traffic through this program, you can enable it to automatically enroll all affiliates in the program.

Fill in the necessary information and choose the "Standard Program" option under the Program Type drop-down menu, then click Add Program.

On the next page, select your My Dirty Hobby site from the drop-down list of Site Tours, or choose your My Dirty Hobby tour from the list of tours, then click Add. Once you have set up your tour, click the pencil icon under Program Default Payouts to edit your payout options for this program. Enter your desired payout amounts or percentages, then click the Save button to save your program.

Setting a My Dirty Hobby Tour for your Program

Type-in traffic

After you have finished configuring your site and program, you will be able to get an affiliate link code for your type-in/in-house affiliate account. Once you have gotten the NATS code from that link code, go back to the Third Party Admin, edit My Dirty Hobby, and paste the affiliate's NATS code into the default NATS code field. This affiliate will then receive credit for all type-in traffic sent to My Dirty Hobby. Please see our Getting The NATSCode article for help obtaining your NATSCode, and our In House Accounts article for more information in in-house accounts in NATS.

Note: If you don't complete these steps, NATS will not be able to track My Dirty Hobby type-in traffic.

Note: Third-parties do not notify NATS about new sales and sign-ups immediately -- there may be up to a 24-hour delay before NATS records third-party transactions.
