When a user signs up to join your affiliate program, they will land in the Pending folder of your Affiliates Overview page.
If there are users here, you should take action.
You can either:
Approve - this means that they gain access to all of the assets within your program.
Disapprove - This means that you reject them and that they will be unable to participate.
Below we'll explain how you can take action and determine whether or not your applicants can participate.
Approving or disapproving a single affiliate
Approving a single affiliate is easy - you can simply click on the affiliate, and open their details panel. In the Programs section, you will see the program they applied for, as well as the status.
You can change the status by clicking on "Pending". This will open a drop down menu, where you can choose to Approve or Disapprove the affiliate.
Approving or disapproving in bulk (multiple affiliates at once)
In the case that you'd like to approve multiple affiliates at once, you may do so by selecting various (check the boxes next to their names) or selecting all:
Two buttons, with the option to "Approve" or "Disapprove", will appear near the top of the table. You can use these to approve or disapprove the selection of affiliates.
Note: If you have more than 100 pending affiliates, then you'd need to click on the "Select All xyz" that appears in the grey box at the top of the table.
Automating the approval of affiliates
It's possible to automate the approval of affiliates.
To auto-approve affiliates, go to your Program’s settings and toggle the 'auto approve affiliates' option on.
If you would like to set up more customized auto-approvals with specific filters or requirements to be fulfilled on your end, this is possible with triggers, by using a webhook action and our REST API.
A developer can reference our advanced Trigger Webhook guide for more information on how to set that up in Tapfiliate.
