Navigating your affiliate dashboard

A brief outline of the different sections of the Commission Factory dashboard.

Below is a detailed description of the main areas of the affiliate dashboard. Please note, each section has its own support articles which details further information on specific areas and functions.

 

Reports

The reports area of your dashboard contains in-depth and insightful data measured against sales, advertisers, creatives, customers, traffic and any unique / sub ids you may be recording. This helps you keep track of your activity and performance, and can be pivoted by factors such as clicks, impressions, commission and conversion rate.

 

Advertisers

The advertiser area shows an overview of all of the available advertisers on the network that you can submit an affiliate application for. Advertisers can be filtered by category, type, status and by which creatives they have available for promotion. 

 

Creatives

The creative area contains all of the imagery that you can promote advertisers with once you have been accepted to their program. Creatives include banners, promotions and coupons, email templates, widgets, text links, images and videos.

 

Transactions

This area displays all of your transactions or sales that you have made for advertisers that you are promoting, and gives you an overview of pending, void, locked approved and paid commissions. 

 

Payments

The payments area keeps a record of your account balance as commissions are credited to your account from advertisers. Commission withdrawal / payments are debited from your account. 

 

Tools

New to affiliate marketing? The tools area gives you options to seek third party services to use for your affiliate marketing efforts. 

 

Account

Your account area is made up of your profile, account avatar, traffic sources, payment options and notification settings. This section also allows you to brand the dashboard and customise to mirror the colours of your website/business, upload your media kit for viewing by advertisers, and show/hide your personal details from advertisers.
