Scheduled Notifications in Epom Affiliate Platform are designed to help keep track of the affiliate ad serving activity. Affiliate Notifications are created by Affiliate Network Supervisors. Affiliate Publishers can then manage the notifications personally in their accounts. Your network users will then receive notifications over the email, for example:

All the Affiliate notifications are:

  • Sent via email.
  • Role-based.
  • Iterative, with a predefined timeframe.
  • Cumulative
  • Designed with the use of your branding (requires White-Labeling).

The following events can trigger Affiliate notifications:

Notification Type Required Action
New Offers Available Affiliate Manager created new Inactive Placements.
Affiliate Offer was approved by Affiliate Manager Affiliate Manager created new Active Placements, or set the existing Placements status to Active.
Affiliate Offer deactivated Placement was deactivated or removed by Affiliate Manager

Capping changed Capping was changed on Placement level.
Geo Targeting changed Geo Targeting for an Affiliate Offer was changed.

Important

1. The rest of the form should already be filled out. Please change it at your own discretion, and save a copy beforehand.

2. Please be cautious when saving the Template. Once you Save the Template, it will be automatically deployed to all related accounts in your Network. Updating the Template afterwards won't automatically update it on other user accounts.
