How Tracking Works

NATS For Networks keeps track of visitors and visitor activity for several of its reports. The track and strack article explains how NATS For Networks's tracking works with inbound affiliate traffic so that you will be able to use it in the most effective way.

Available Reports

NATS For Networks provides a wide variety of different reports, so that you can track your statistics accurately and efficiently. These reports are broken up into the following different categories.

Profit & Loss Report

The Profit & Loss Report provides a visual graph using various statistics, as well as a comprehensive table breaking down these statistics in text form. This helps to maintain accurate records on your offer's total profit and loss, as well as being able to see all separate statistics that comprise this total profit and loss-- allowing you to see where any inaccuracies your accounting may come from.

The Profit & Loss graph is broken down by transactions per day for sales, continuity, refunds, and reversals. For raw views, the graph is broken down by views per day.

The table at the bottom of this report displays all these statistics, as well as the income that these figures generate (customer sale income, continuity income, refunds loss, etc.). This table also provides the total affiliate payments due per day, as well as additional payments and fees that you may have incurred.

Some figures in this report table will appear as hyperlinks. These figures can be moused over to view a brief breakdown of how this sum was calculated. Clicking on a statistic will take you to a detailed report about that particular statistic.

For more information on this report, please see our Profit and Loss Report wiki article.

Subscription Report

The Subscription Report provides in-depth details of each and every customer subscription that is tracked in your NATS For Networks system. This allows you search and view specifics about each customer subscription, ensure its validity, and see specific dollar figures regarding each subscription.

Clicking any customer or affiliate username brings you to the Customer Details or Affiliate Details page, where you can view any information about that specified customer or affiliate that is stored in NATS For Networks.

For more information on this report, please see our Subscription Report wiki article.

Transactions Report

The Transactions Report provides a list of any transaction that has been tracked by NATS For Networks. In this report, you will be able to view specific details about any transaction, including dollar figures, transaction type, and various transaction identification information. This helps to ensure that all transactions undertaken have been reflected in NATS For Networks, that all additions and deductions to the total transaction amount are accurate, and that your affiliate payments are accurate as well.

For more information on this report, please see our Transactions Report wiki article.

Affiliate Manager Report

The Affiliate Manager Report provides detailed information regarding Affiliate Managers set up in your NATS For Networks. This allows you to track how profitable an Affiliate Manager commission is, along with specific information regarding that Affiliate Manager including affiliates registered under them, and how much income they are generating.

For more information on this report, please see our Affiliate Managers Report wiki article.

Visitor Actions Report

The Visitor Actions Report displays any actions tracked by NATS For Networks that a visitor has undertaken, as well as any relevant information regarding that action. This includes transactions, cascades, errors, etc. This report can be used to view what a visitor does on your offer, as well as checking for errors that occurred during their visit and why that error occurred.

For more information on this report, please see our Visitor Actions Report wiki article.

Affiliate Referral Tier Commissions Report

The Affiliate Referral Tier Commissions report displays all commissions that have been made to affiliates as part of an Affiliate Referral commission. This information includes the customer, affiliate, and referrer involved in this commission, as well as the tiered commissions and commissions given from each commission.

This report is useful for checking the effectiveness of your affiliate referral commission, and whether you wish to continue using the commission. You can also see which affiliate has the most referrals, how much their referrals have earned, and how much you are paying out for your affiliates and referrals.

For more information on this report, please see our Affiliate Referral Tier Commissions Report wiki article.

Affiliate Referral Signup Commissions Report

The Affiliate Referral Signup Commissions Report displays all commissions that have been made as a result of affiliate referrals. As opposed to the Affiliate Referral Tier Commissions report, the Signup Commissions report displays a referred affiliate, the affiliate they were referred by, and the payments given for actually referring those affiliates.

This is useful for checking how many affiliates are part of your commissions as a result of your Affiliate Referral commission. You can also see which affiliate has referred the most affiliates, as well as the payments they received for referring other affiliates.

For more information on this report, please see our Affiliate Referral Signup Commissions Report wiki article.

Additional Commissions Report

The Additional Commissions Report provides an in-depth view of any commissions categorized in the Profit & Loss Report as "Additional Commission". This report breaks down individual categories that comprise this additional payment with a graph that displays all statistics found in the table below based on dollar amount per day.

This report can prove useful for ensuring that your payments for commissions outside of basic commissions are accurate-- this includes affiliate referral commissions, Affiliate Manager commissions, partner payments, etc. This table can be used to see how costly these commissions can be, as well as view a day-to-day breakdown of statistics not specified in the Profit & Loss Report.

For more information on this report, please see our Additional Commissions Report wiki article.

Affiliate Ratios

The Affiliate Ratios report displays a report broken down by affiliate. You will be able to see the total number of raw and unique page views, sales and the ratio of those figures.

This report will also show you the ratio of the number of transactions for an affiliate with the number of refunds.

For more information on this report, please see our Affiliate Ratios Report wiki article.

Graphical Affiliate Comparison

The Graphical Affiliate Comparison Report provides an in-depth, visual view of various affiliate statistics. This report breaks down individual affiliate statistics, such as raw views, sales, continuity, etc. for each affiliate in an easy to read graph. You can choose what statistic is displayed by using the "Field" drop-down menu in the Affiliate column of the search box.

This report is useful for comparing affiliates amongst each other through an easy to read, visual method. You can also view a daily breakdown of affiliate stats, allowing you to further analyze your affiliates' effectiveness through various criteria. This report also allows you to compare affiliates by negative transactions (continuity, chargebacks, etc.).

For more information on this report, please see our Graphical Affiliate Comparison Report wiki article.

Single Day Comparison Report

The Single Day Comparison Report allows you to compare a single day's statistics to a given time period, such as last period, past 30 days, this year, etc. The statistics in this report are broken down by affiliate, allowing you to compare an affiliate's daily statistics with their historical statistics. There is also a total of all statistics shown on the Single Day Comparison table at the bottom of the page.

You can use this report to measure the amount of change in views, sales, and continuity over a given time period, as well as measure the change in individual affiliate statistics over a certain time period. The same is possible for comparing day to day changes in statistics.

For more information on this report, please see our Single Day Comparison Report wiki article.
