Profile settings

This article informs affiliates about the different features in the profile settings section.

In your account settings, you can change information related to your account, such as the name, avatar, profile description, and hosting of a media deck. This information is managed in the Settings section of the platform, located in the top right-hand corner of the platform (indicated by a cog icon). 

Profile name

Your profile name is what your account's name is. This is what will be visible to advertisers and Commission Factory staff to help identify your account. If you are operating a business, it is wise to make sure your profile name is the name of your business. This will help your account stand out and easily identifiable. 

Change Avatar

This may either be a personal photo or a business logo, depending on the nature of your account, however, please ensure this image remains professional. Advertisers receive a lot of affiliate applications each day, however, due to time and resource restrictions may only have time to briefly peruse each application. The avatar is the first thing an advertiser sees when going through new affiliate applications to their program. Having your business logo visible to advertisers will help you stand out from all the affiliate applications and increase your chances of getting approved.


The description area gives you the opportunity to introduce yourself or your company as a whole, and the value you can bring to advertisers. A little blurb is enough to add here.

Media Deck

Many affiliates will have a media deck or media kit to help introduce their product or services to advertisers. If you have a media kit, this can be uploaded here.
