NATS4 Rewards Admin
The Rewards Admin allows you to create and manage rewards which you can use as additional incentives for your affiliates.
Creating a Rewards Category
Before you can add a reward in the Rewards Admin, first you must create a Rewards Category. To do this, enter a category name of your choosing in the field labeled, "New Rewards Category" and click "Add". This will create a category that you may then select from the "Choose Category" drop down menu.
Adding a Reward
Once at least one rewards category is set up, you may start adding rewards from which your affiliates can choose. For each reward, you can set the following:
- Name - The name of the reward you are offering to the affiliate.
- Cost - The amount of points that is required for the affiliate to purchase this reward.
- URL - A link to a page containing details about the reward.
- Thumbnail - Allows you to select a thumbnail image to display for this reward.
- Description - A description of the reward being offered.
Setting up Points
In order for affiliates to accumulate reward points, you must set up a way for affiliates to earn these points. By clicking the "Points" tab in the Rewards Admin, you can set points to be awarded based on raw hits, unique hits, initial sales, rebills and refunds. If you would like to remove points for the affiliate for any of these things, set the point value to a negative value.
Sending out Purchased Rewards
Affiliates can view their bonus points accumulated in the "My Account" section of the affiliate area. Once an affiliate purchases a reward, the cost of the reward will be deducted from their bonus points and the reward will be listed in the "Unshipped" section of the Rewards Admin. By clicking on the "Unshipped" Tab you can manage the shipping details of the reward for the affiliate and mark the reward as shipped where it will be listed in the "Shipped" section of the rewards Admin. All rewards that have been shipped can be found by clicking on the "Shipped" tab of the rewards admin, which also contains details about the date the reward was purchased and shipped.
