You may add several tracking domains for your offers and choose a default domain for each offer separately. More info you can find here.

MAIL SETTINGS

Email setup is crucial for your affiliates to be able to register in the network and activate their accounts.
For the default email noreply@affise.com there is a number of limit of emails to be sent. We strongly recommend you to set your custom email account when you start using Affise.

Mail – email account.
Protocolemail account protocol:
smpt – default protocol for email transmission.
smpt+ssla standard security protocol for establishing encrypted links between a web server and a browser in an online communication;
smpt+tlssimilar to smpt+ssl, but with the different type of certificate (tlc).
SMPT-serverEmail provider SMTP server type which is typically set as ‘smtp.domain.com’ or ‘mail.domain.com’. For instance, a Gmail account will refer to smtp.gmail.com. But that’s not a unified type, so you should pay attention and get the right SMPT parameters. Below you find a list of the SMTP settings of the most common providers:

SMPT-port port 587 is supported by almost every outgoing SMTP server and it’s useful for unencrypted or TLS connections; while port 465 is used to connect via SSL.
SMPT-loginwill be the same as your email account name.
SMPT-passwordwill be the same as your email account password.

If the info above was not useful enough to set up custom email account kindly contact your email provider to get more details on settings setup.

TRAFFICBACK

You can set a global trafficback in the way you want it to be. You can choose whether to use it for disabled and paused offers or when the offer is disabled for affiliates. Also, trafficback can be used by any other reason, for example, when the traffic has an inappropriate user targeting, overcaps, etc.

  • Affiliate network URL - URL of the affiliates' workspace
  • API Address - affiliate network API URL

Note: The “S” in HTTPS stands for secure connection and it appears in the address bar of your browser. We recommend all our clients, who use custom domains, provide us with SSL certificates.

Please, note that mobile apps usually are not transparent with users about the security of their web connections, and it can be hard to tell whether an app is connecting via HTTP or HTTPS.

SECURITY 

In Security section you have 2 special options to ensure the protection of your business:

1. Set restrictions (IP whitelist) on entering the admin panel.

2. Generate Secure postback code to protect your platform against conversion fraud.
