Handling Affiliate Requests

After you have enabled the affiliate program for a campaign and are ready to invite affiliates, you can go back to the main campaign section and copy the campaign affiliate request URL to share with new affiliate to request to promote your campaign.

Each campaign will have a specific request URL to request to promote that campaign.

Once the affiliate uses the link to request to promote your campaign, you will see the request in your vendor account.


There are a few different ways to approve or deny affiliate requests.

To understand the difference between Instant and Delayed affiliate payouts, please refer to this article.

When approving affiliates, you will be given the ability to approve/deny the affiliate for the individual product/funnel that they’re requesting, or also approve/deny for ALL of your products/campaigns.

  • Deny: denies the affiliate’s campaign promotion request.
  • Approve(Delayed): Approves the affiliate for the specific campaign and set’s their commission to be reviewed and manually paid out by you.
  • Approve(Instant): Approves the affiliate and set’s their commission to be instant IF the affiliate is using PayPal and has enabled instant commissions AND the customer purchases via PayPal. All other commissions will be manual by default.
  • Approve All(Delayed): Approves the affiliate for all current campaigns and set’s their commission to be reviewed and manually paid out by you.
  • Approve All(Instant): Approves the affiliate for all current campaigns and set’s their commission to be instant IF the affiliate is using PayPal and has enabled instant commissions AND the customer purchases via PayPal. All other commissions will be manual by default.
