Offerit allows you to change affiliate statuses from Active to either "Disabled" or "Banned". This is useful for preventing affiliates from accessing your Offerit system.

Affiliate Statuses

A Banned affiliate will not be able to log in to your Offerit system, and all of their traffic will be redirected to the /spam.html page on your Tracking Domain. Once an affiliate is banned, they are also automatically removed from the Payments Admin to prevent them from receiving payments.

A Disabled affiliate, on the other hand, will also be restricted from logging in and removed from the Payments Admin, but their traffic will still be tracked by Offerit.

Changing an Affiliate's Status

To change an affiliate's status in Offerit, go to the affiliates admin, locate the affiliate you want to affect, and click the corresponding "Change Affiliate Status" action icon.

The next page will provide a breakdown of that affiliate's basic information, including Full Name, Address, Minimum Payment, URL, Company, E-Mail, Payment Method, and Current Status. This page also provides information regarding how long the affiliate has been registered under your Offerit.

Below the available list of information, you will find three fields that can be configured to affect your affiliate's status. These fields are:

  • Status - Choose between Active, Disabled, and Banned.
  • Public Reason - Displays the text in this field to the affiliate as a reason for their status change.
  • Internal Reason - Displays the text in this fields to admins only as a reason for an affiliate's status change.
