Fraud protection
Affiliate Marketing is a wonderful tool and a trending marketing tactic to bring more sales to your store. Nonetheless, it also carries several risks like affiliate fraud, referral scam that may cause loss to your business. Understanding that, we have developed a tool that can help detect and prevent spam signups and sales. Let's take a glimpse at this feature to see how it works.

Affiliate signups

1. Detect multiple signups from an IP address
This option allows you to detect if there are multiple registrations from a specific IP address within a period, which you can set an amount to. After detecting these signups, you can choose to Don't save these accounts or still Save but deny to review these affiliates later and decide whether to keep them or remove for good.
Note: The preventive action will be taken from the second accounts that registers within the set period. The maximum value for Period is 31536000 seconds (1 year).
If you choose Save but deny as an option, the system will automatically add a yellow warning next to the affiliate's name to inform you that this affiliate is detected as a spam one.
2. Block specific affiliates from signup
In case you want to block certain affiliates from joining your program when you have their emails, you can make use of this feature to do that. For multiple emails at once, you can insert email addresses and separated them by commas. Please make sure to press on Save changes to completely block it.
The blocklist can be viewed again anytime and you can also unblock certain affiliates if you find them qualified or block them by mistakes.
