Steps of setting caps
Follow the steps below to set caps for your affiliates:
As you can see from the steps above, setting Private Caps for affiliates is a distinct feature on Offerslook. By setting a Private Cap for your affiliate, you allow the affiliate to have a cap only for them.
Setting Shared + Private Caps then can help you have more flexibility on managing the caps allocation. Below is one example:
Set Caps Matrix
Suppose you have set a Cap of 1,000 conversions for the Offer. And you have 2 affiliates: Affiliate A and Affiliate B. You have decided to set the following cap matrix:
Then you'd allow both Affiliate A and Affiliate B to have maximum 500 conversions respectively. And in total, their contribution should not exceed 1,000 conversion, otherwise additional traffic will be either rejected or redirected.
Go to Offers -> Offer menu
Click on the Offer you want to put a cap on
Click Approved & Caps
Click the setting Caps icon of the Affiliate that you want to apply a cap on.
Select Caps Type to view different cap types.Total means the maximum amount of the cap that is set to the affiliate.If the offer is CPA/CPI pricing type, you can set cap on Conversions. If the offer is CPC pricing type, you can set cap on Clicks.
Click Category to see Shared or Private Category.A Shared cap refers to a cap that is shared by a few affiliates.a Private cap is only visible to you and this specific affiliate, and it applies only to this specific affiliate.
Click Budget to set a cap on the entire budget of spending amount.
Select Daily to select a cap per day in your timezone.
At last, of course you can set Caps Type as None to allow for unrestricted cap.
Then in this case, you'd allow:
Affiliate C to have 400 conversion cap for him/her only;
- Affiliate A and Affiliate B to have 400 conversion cap maximum. But Affiliate A and Affiliate B, combined together, should not contribute more than 600 conversions (1,000 - 400);
That says, whenever Affiliate A and Affiliate B, combined together, contribute 600 conversions, additional traffic will be either rejected or redirected.
