Merchants receive oodles of applications every day to their affiliate programs and sorting through them can be very time consuming, but it doesn’t have to be. By using our Application Approval Rules, program managers can drastically save time for all those applications by setting up rules to automatically approve or decline applications that would be an immediate “yes” or “no”.
Check out these common scenarios to incorporate application rules:
Building a solid base of affiliates can be tricky, especially if you are seeking partners who utilize specific advertising tactics. Use approval rules to help activate affiliates whose promotional techniques align with your program’s strategy.
If nexus laws prevent your program from working with affiliates in certain states or if your program only makes sense for local affiliates, set up an approval rule by location. Don’t bother reviewing applications from states that you know won’t work.
Email matches domain
While ShareASale has our own approval process for any incoming affiliates, Merchants also verify all their applications. An easy way to verify an affiliate’s legitimacy is see if their listed email address matches their domain. Setting up this rule can help sort through any applications that might need a second look or those that can be waived through.
Finding the right partnerships to connect with plays an important part in the success of a program. Take advantage of these tools that we offer and make your life a little easier.
