Publisher – or an affiliate, is an entity that promotes the advertiser’s product to direct customers.

How do I become an affiliate publisher?

To become a publisher, you need to create an affiliate network account. Campaigns can be promoted through multiple channels: website, email, Adwords or Facebook Ads. You can also place tracking links on different online forums.

I am registered, but I can’t use the publisher’s panel yet. Why?

Anyone who registers with our network as a publisher is first verified and must be accepted by us in the system in order to be able to operate. This usually happens quickly, but there are some exceptions, so please be patient.

I don’t have a website. How can I promote affiliate campaigns?

Not having a website is not an obstacle to promoting campaigns. In our publisher panel you can create a website on our domain using a simple website creator. At your disposal you have ready-made widgets, which you can modify and then place on this page. You can also use the banner rotator, a tool that allows you to randomly display creations of a selected format from the available pool of campaigns that have the highest conversion rates.

As a publisher, what do I need an affiliate network for?

The affiliate network gives you access to the campaign database without having to integrate them and cooperate directly with the advertiser. Thanks to the network, you also have access to necessary statistical data and you can see the current results of your activities in the panel. The network is responsible for technical support of your activities, as well as negotiating rates with the advertiser. Thanks to this, you save time and energy, which you can spend on the promotion of the campaign and earning money.

I don’t have a business activity and I don’t want to start one. Can I become a publisher?

Yes. No business activity is not an obstacle. The publishers of our network are both businesses and individuals.

What is the publisher’s panel and what will I find there?

The publisher’s panel is your campaign management centre. Here you will find the entire database of available campaigns, their rates, detailed descriptions and tracking links for each of them. Here you can also check the results of your actions in the reports – you can see every conversion you have generated on a given day, in a given week or month. In our new publisher’s panel you have access to useful tools such as the page creator, widgets and banner rotator. So the publisher’s panel can also make your work easier.

I want to promote a specific campaign. How do I do this?

To promote a campaign, you need a tracking link that is generated automatically for each Publisher and each campaign – just click on the details of a given program. This link must then be embedded into the place where you want to promote the campaign (e.g. by linking the content on your website). You can also use promotional materials available in the panel – advertising banners or mailing creations. They are automatically linked and ready to use. You can also use ready-made tools such as widgets. You can create your own list of campaigns to be displayed in the widgets. They will automatically include your tracking link.

Why do I see conversions with the allocated amount of PLN 0 in the report?

In the Publishers’ panel we report both paid conversions, such as CPS or CPL, as well as free conversions. The latter are mostly applications for which there is no commission in a given campaign. In our new panel you can immediately see the “goal” column in the conversion report, where you can see what kind of action has been generated.

I have a specific sum of money in my publisher’s account. How can I get it?

Invoices are accepted every month after we finalise settlements. We inform all publishers about it in a newsletter. In the publisher’s panel in the “Settlements” tab there are summaries for each month with information about how much you earned and in which campaigns. Remember that the documents in the publisher’s panel are not invoices, but only the basis for issuing an invoice or a bill. After issuing an invoice or a bill (depending on whether you are conducting a business activity or not) send it to the following address ksiegowosc@aff44.com. We will make the transfer within a maximum of three working days.
