Account Creation

There are three ways of advertiser's profile creation in the Admin panel. The first way is to create an advertiser's profile on your own via UI or via API. The second way is to let the advertiser register in Affise, so his profile will be added automatically upon registration. The third way is to import advertisers' profiles: it may suit you if you just moved to Affise from other tracking solution.

Manual creation

Go to Advertisers -> Advertisers, click New Advertiser.

You need to fill all the fields on your own. Here you can see the list of fields.

Advertiser's registration

To enable this opportunity, go to Settings -> Advertisers -> Registration and select the Registration flag:

When the flag is enabled, you can go to Advertisers section.

Click Registration link, and the link to the registration form is copied to the clipboard.

The link's example:

https://offers-rocketcompany.affise.com/signup

If you use the custom domain, the link contains the custom domain.

You can share the link with the advertiser, who would like to have a profile in Affise. Once the advertiser follows the link, he gets to the registration form (registration page).

Once the advertiser fills in all the forms and clicks Create account, his profile appears in the list of advertisers in the Admin panel. He will be redirected to the Sign in page.

❗ If the email, entered by the advertiser in the registration form, is already used by another advertiser or a user, the profile won't be created.

You also observe the Sign in button. You can sign in as an advertiser and check what he actually sees.

It is possible to see the date and time of the advertiser's registration in the Registration date column. If the Registration option was turned off before, the data in the Registration date column for that period stands for the creation of the advertiser's profile manually by a user. The date and time is shown according to the time zone of the Admin panel.

You can set up a notification on the advertiser's registration. Go to Notifications -> new notification. Set up the Advertiser Registration type.

If the Registration option is disabled in Settings, the advertiser, who would like to create a profile, will see the following:

FAQ

1) Why is 'Send hosts only' option invalid in the Advertiser's edit page?

'Send hosts only' option of a higher level have more priority over the subsidiary 'Send hosts only' option of lower level/-s following the hierarchy (from the top priority to the lowest one) : Settings level → Advertiser level → Offer level. If you enable 'Send hosts only' option of a higher level, the system will leave 'Send hosts only' subsidiary options of lower level/-s in a disabled state and do not allow changing its settings. At the same time, if you disable this option of a higher level, the system will restore 'Send hosts only' subsidiary options of lower level/-s in an enabled state.

2) I can't delete the advertiser. What is wrong?

If the advertiser has at least one offer regardless of its status, you can't delete the advertiser. Please delete the offer or assign it to another advertiser firstly.

3) How can I share access to Admin panel for the advertiser?

Here you can learn more about both ways of sharing access.
