Searching For Affiliates

At the top of the Affiliates Admin main page, you will see an "Affiliate Search" box, which allows you to find specific affiliates by using a variety of search parameters. The Affiliates Admin offers Basic and Advanced search forms. The basic form allows you to search by Username, E-Mail, Affiliate ID, and Status (active, banned, disabled, etc.). The Advanced Search Form offers a wide variety of parameters to search by, allowing you to make more specific search parameters. These categories include:

  • Account Info - Search by basic affiliate information, such as username, e-mail, real name, ICQ, AIM, address, etc.
  • Linked Accounts - Search by referring affiliate, referrer ID, and account rep.
  • Payment Details - Search by minimum payment, PayVia type, or PayVia info.

  • Limitations - Only search for specific account type, whether an account is in-house, and choose how many affiliates to display per page.

The Affiliates Table

The Affiliates Table can be found below the "Affiliate Search" box on the Affiliates Admin main page. This contains information regarding every affiliate you have in your NATS For Networks system, including:

  • Real Name (Country)/E-Mail - Displays the real name of the affiliate, along with their country and the e-mail address they used to register
  • Joined/Last Login - Displays the time and date the affiliate joined, as well as their last login

At the bottom of the Affiliates Table, you will find a drop-down menu that allows you to perform batch actions on affiliates.

Affiliate Documents

NATS For Networks lets you upload and send documents to affiliates. To do so, go to the Affiliates Admin, select the affiliate you want, and click the Affiliate Documents icon. Once you are on the Documents page, you can use the field there to upload and send documents to this affiliate-- existing documents will be listed on the page.

Uploading Documents in NATS For Networks

Before you can begin uploading documents for your affiliates, you must first make allowances for file extensions and IPs in the Configuration Admin. Go to the "Security" section of the Configuration Admin and scroll down to the "Document Upload" settings. Here, you will find two configuration settings regarding document uploads:

  • DOCUMENTS_SECURE_EXT - Input which file extensions you wish to allow in a comma-separated list. For example: .doc,.txt,.docx
  • DOCUMENTS_SECURE_IPS - Input which IPs will be allowed to upload documents in a comma-separated list.

Affiliate Admin Settings

Affiliate Admin Settings allows you to customize affiliates beyond the standard settings. Here you can manually mark In-House Accounts, indicate that certain documents have been received, set trust levels, and allow features like manual invoices.

For more information on Affiliate Admin Settings, please see our Affiliate Admin Settings wiki article.

When you are done further configuring your affiliate, click Save Changes.

Manual Invoices

NATS For Networks allows you to give a one-time credit to an affiliate with a manual invoice. With this option, the affiliate will be paid the additional amount the next time you store payments.

Warning: after you make a manual invoice, you can not remove it; you must pay the affiliate.

To add a manual invoice, you must first enable them in the Affiliates Admin. Find the affiliate you wish to allow manual invoices for, and click the Edit Affiliate Admin Settings icon. Under "Main Settings", enable the Manual Invoices check-box and click Save Changes.

Once you have done this, return to the main Affiliate Admin, find the affiliate again, and click the new Add Manual Invoice icon. Enter the amount to pay the affiliate and click Add Invoice.
