If you have to deal with a long list of Advertisers or you're moving to Affise from another tracking solution, Affise Import option may help you to create a great number of Advertisers' accounts just in a few clicks. Find out more about the Import procedure here.

You can manage your Advertisers via API as well:

There is an opportunity to create a preset for the Export table. It is useful when you usually export the same data (like only ID, company and manager of the advertiser). 

See the GIF below:

You can delete the preset by clicking on the 'Remove' button.

How can I share access to the statistics to my Advertiser?

You can always provide access to your Advertiser to see the statistics of his offers if this is what is needed. Just add an email address while creating Advertiser's account and then click on the "send password" button.

The Advertiser will get a confirmation email and will have an opportunity to log into your Affise panel to check the Statistics of his offers. Advertisers should log into your Affise system via Admin Panel just like you always do when you start working in your Affise cabinet. However, they'll have very limited access and see the following data:

While creating Advertiser's Account you can also manage the following options that will be applied to all the offers of this particular Advertiser and will define the traffic you'd like to receive:

  • Secure postback code - generate a secure postback code to be protected against conversions fraud. If the code is generated, your Affise postback URL for this Advertiser should be updated with a related parameter &secure=secure_postback_code_itselfIf the code is generated but not added to the Postback URL, postbacks sent from this Advertiser will be registered with error message 'access denied' and conversions for such postbacks will not be recorded in Affise.
  • Allowed IPs - a list of IPs you allow your Advertiser to send postbacks from. As a rule, you'll need to ask your Advertiser to send you a list of his/her server IPs to list them in the mentioned field. Each new IP should be written with a new line. You can use the IP range with a hyphen. If the postbacks will be sent from other IPs, postbacks will be registered with an error message 'Current IP-address is denied' and conversions for such postbacks will not be recorded in Affise.
  • Allowed sub-account 1,2 - this option lets you block or whitelist some of the sub-accounts 1&2 values (received from your Affiliate via a tracking URL in &sub1=,&sub2= parameters) on the advertiser's level. Write one or more values delimited by a comma to filter sub-accounts. Only digits, letters, commas are available.
