Offers Overview

Introduction

An offer represents the terms for compensation in an advertiser's program available to publishers. Our advertisers set their own offers, and these offers vary from one advertiser to the next.

Offers can include commissions based on a set percentage of sales, on the number of impressions or click-throughs, or on a combination of these. Offers can also be based on a flat fee for the performance of a certain action or generating a lead, such as making a phone call, downloading an application, or filling out a form for a customer lead.

Offers Types

Advertisers can create three types of offers:

  1. A baseline offer: this offer is typically public and is the one you join when you apply to an advertiser’s program.
  2. Private offers: these include special program terms advertisers make available to select publishers. Learn more about private offers.
  3. Special offers: advertisers create a special offer to provide different commission rates for particular products. Special offers are combined with regular private or public offers, meaning you can join special offers in addition to the regular offer you are in. Learn more about special offers.

Finding and Joining Offers

Advertiser offers are displayed in your Publisher Dashboard. View instructions for viewing and joining offers.

 Note

You can only participate in one non-special offer at a time for each advertiser.

Offer Availability Changes

Advertisers typically change their available offers when they adjust their commission structures. How frequently they do so depends on the advertiser's program. Contact the advertiser directly for more information about why a change was made. You can find their contact information in the About tab of their details page.

Offer Expiration

You will receive a notification in the dashboard when an offer is close to expiring. When baseline and regular offers expire, you are automatically placed in another offer of the advertiser’s choosing. You do not need to change your links or reapply to partner with the advertiser. You will be commissioned based on the offer you were in at the time that the original click from your site to the advertiser’s occurred on the link.
