The Advertisers Admin is a group of features in Offerit that allow you to manage your advertisers, view their statistics, edit their permissions and details, and get other essential information.
Searching For Advertisers
At the top of the Advertisers Admin main page, you will see an "Advertiser Search" box, which allows you to find specific advertisers by using a variety of search parameters. The Advertisers Admin offers Basic and Advanced search forms. The basic form allows you to search by Username, E-Mail, Advertiser ID, and Status (active, banned, disabled, etc.). The Advanced Search Form offers a wide variety of parameters to search by, allowing you to make more specific search parameters. These categories include:
- Account Info - Search by basic advertiser information, such as username, e-mail, real name, ICQ, AIM, address, etc.
- Linked Accounts - Search by referring advertiser, referrer ID, and Affiliate Manager.
- Payment Details - Search by minimum payment, Payvia type, or Payvia info.
- Statistics for (period) - Sort statistics by time periods, such as last period, this period, this year, etc. Search by page views, unique visitors, sales, and ratio. You can specify your search by "Less Than" or "At Least".
- Access Details - Search by last login IP and last login date.
- Limitations - Only search for specific account type, whether an account is in-house, and choose how many advertisers to display per page.
You can also get a complete CSV Dump of advertiser data by clicking the "Full CSV Dump" button in the Advertiser Search box at the top of the page. Offerit also offers an "E-mail Dump" feature. This will obtain only dumps of advertisers' e-mail addresses, an additional dump statistic, through the advertiser search table.
The Advertisers Table
The Advertisers Table can be found below the "Advertiser Search" box on the Advertisers Admin main page. This contains information regarding every advertiser you have in your Offerit system, including:
- Username - Displays the username of the advertiser, and the status of their account (active, disabled, banned)
- Real Name (Country)/E-Mail - Displays the real name of the advertiser, along with their country and the e-mail address they used to register
- Joined/Last Login - Displays the time and date the advertiser joined, as well as their last login
At the bottom of the Advertisers Table, you will find a drop-down menu that allows you to perform batch actions on advertiser. You can perform these batch actions by selecting them with the checkboxes to the left of each advertiser name, and using the available drop-down menu. Through the drop-down menu, you can:
- Delete - Removes the selected advertisers from list of available advertisers.
- Restore (Delete) - Restores a deleted advertiser to your "Advertisers" list. This functionality will be added to later versions of Offerit.
Click the Perform Action button to perform your specified action to your selected advertisers.
