Below are the campaign setting requirements prior to a campaign going live.

Below are the campaign commission requirements prior to a campaign going live.
Default commission (Required)

Post launch actions
Discovery settings (Recommended to view)
By default, your campaign will not be visible to partners outside of your current campaigns. Opting in your campaign or entire brand to Brand Discovery will allow partners, outside of your current campaigns, to request to join.

You should only invite partners to your new campaign once it has been set live by our Integrations team. If you have any questions regarding the status of your new campaign integration, please contact your Customer Success manager or email@example.com.
Once your campaign is live, you can use our Manage Partners tools to invite and recruit partners:
Requests & invites
If you have opted in your campaign to be discoverable within Discovery Settings, you can view partners who have requested to join your campaign in Requests & invites.
More information available here: Manage Partners
Partner Discovery and Prospects
You can use our in-platform tools to invite partners to your new campaign. Partner Discovery gives you access to partners across our Partnerize ecosystem, whereas Prospects showcases external partners.

Recruit by Email
If you have curated a list of partners you would like to invite to your Partnerize campaign, you can upload the list of email addresses to our Recruit By Email tool and send a communication with an enhanced sign up link from within Partnerize.

In order for sales to become available to invoice, advertisers must first validate their conversions. This can be actioned within the Partnerize platform or via our API.
Validating sales also notifies partners which sales they should expect to be paid for and which have been rejected, for instance order was cancelled.

Approved and previously un-invoiced sales will be available to add to a new invoice in the Payments tab. Invoices are raised per campaign and partners will receive commission once Partnerize receives payment from the brand.
