You can group your offers into different categories, allowing you or your affiliates to organize your offers. This will allow affiliates to select an offer category in the affiliate area - for example, if they only wanted to get linkcodes from certain offer categories.

If you would like to to add a new offer Category, simply click the "Add new category" link. To manage your categories, go to the Offers Admin then click on "Categories" on the side navigation bar.

You can also organize your offers by Marketing Type, which is simply an additional method to group your offers.

Affiliates will be able to see which marketing types apply and don't apply for each offer they have access to. All of your marketing types will show here with a checkbox, simply check all that apply. If you have no marketing types, the field will be blank. You can add a new Marketing Type by going to the Offers Admin and clicking "Marketing Types" on the side navigation bar, and then clicking "Create a new Marketing Type". This will add a new marketing type to which you can add offers by clicking "Manage Marketing Type Details".

You will be able to edit some of the originally entered information, such as the Offer Name, Start and End date, Offer Image, and the commission. There are also a few more new options you can configure as well.

Additional Commission Details

In addition to the options set when you created your offer, the edit offer page had additional details you can configure for your offer's commission.

  • Deduct Voids - If checked, NATS For Networks will deduct commissions from affiliates for conversions that end up being voided.
  • Hide Continuities - Turn this option on if you do NOT want to display continuities on the affiliate stats pages for this commission. This option will not work if this commission pays affiliates on continuities.
  • Hide Conversions - Turn this option on if you do NOT want to display conversions on the affiliate's stats pages for this commission. This option will not work if this commission pays affiliates on joins.
  • Retro-active Commission - Turn this option on if you want the affiliate's commission on all continuities to be based on the commission set at the time of the members join.

Advanced Settings

  • Hidden - If this is checked, affiliates can not get codes to promote this offer, but any existing codes will continue to work.
  • Mobile Landing Page - the landing page to redirect mobile users to.
  • Disable Storing Personal Customer Information - If checked, this will prevent the offer from storing customer personal information. This means that fields like firstname and lastname will never be saved, even if they are passed back with the pixel.
  • Group - Select a group for your offer. Offer groups are used for viewing groups of offers in the reporting admin. To make a new group, click the "Add Offer Group" button on the sidebar.
  • Remove OCode - If checked, NATS For Networks will not pass the Tracking code along to the landing page through track links.
  • Pending Lockout - Specify a number of seconds in this setting if you want to have pending transactions on the offer. When defined, conversions that are reported in less than this number of seconds after their corresponding click will require manual approval by an admin. Conversions that take place more than this number of seconds after their corresponding click will be automatically approved.

Low Conversion Ratio Warning

NATS For Networks provides a feature called Low Conversion Ratio Warning, which allows NATS For Networks to automatically send an e-mail notification when your landing page drops below a certain Join to Hit Ratio.

This section offers several time periods where you can set a minimum Join to Hit ratio for:

  • Midnight to 6 AM
  • 6 AM to Noon
  • Noon to 6 PM
  • 6 PM to Midnight.

If you wish to use this feature, you must first input a "Low Threshold E-mail" -- this specifies which e-mail address(es) will receive low threshold e-mail warnings. The "Mail Threshold" option specifies the subject of this warning e-mail. You can edit the template with the Edit Template links below this field.
