My Affiliates

This section allows you to manage affiliates and affiliates' websites you currently have relationship with. These include sites that are showing your ads, sites with invitations or requests pending, approved or rejected. You can change the status of almost any relationship, e.g. Stop a site's participation in your program or re-invite a site to your program in case you or the affiliate have refused to start a relationship earlier.
The drop-down menu allows you to select which sites will be shown and for what programs.

Viewing affiliate sites list

To access affiliate sites list you have relationship with, use the "My Affiliates" link in "My Office".
Information about the affiliate program and the site participating in it is displayed in the left and right part of the screen accordingly.

Using the drop-down menu you can filter sites in the following way:
Show all sites - All sites that have any kind of relationship with your affiliate program(s). Depending on the relationship status you can re-invite a site, approve or reject site's request to participate in your program, or cancel your invitation.
Show "Applications pending" sites only - Affiliates' websites that have sent you an application which you have not approved/rejected yet. You can approve/reject an application by clicking the appropriate button under the site's info table. In both cases a notification message will be sent to the affiliate.
The number of pending applications is also displayed on "My Office" main page opposite the "My Affiliates" link.
Show sites engaged in programs - Sites that are currently participating in your program(s) and showing your ads. You can stop this relationship using the "Cancel" button. Later you will be able to re-invite this site to join your program.
Show sites that rejected your invitation - Sites that have rejected your invitation to participate in your affiliate programs. If a site has rejected your invitation it will show up in the list, but you do not have the ability to re-invite the site. The site's owner is the only one who can try to reinitiate the relationship by sending you an application to your program.
Show sites I rejected - Sites that have been sending requests to participate in your affiliate programs which you have rejected. You can re-invite a site to participate in the program the affiliate applied to.
