October 30th, 2005, 03:23 AM #1Affiliates Approval Status QuestionWhen a merchant clicks the Details link under the name of any affiliate on his/her list, he/she sees a bunch of affiliate details, including an Affiliate's Approval Status category. This category has three 'tickable' options
- Not Approved
What is the difference between Not Approved and Declined?

I would *guess* that those come into play if you do manual approvals.
It seems that Not Approved would mean, their application is sitting in the queue--you haven't approved them yet, but haven't said "no" either.
Declined would be, you said "no," you didn't want that aff in your program.There is no knowledge that is not power. ~Hemingway

hi geno..non approved means , when a affiliate applies and you have kept the settings to approve him manually and after reviewing his application you decline him its called not approved and when a affiliate is immediatley declined on applying its know as declined....decline criteria can be set by the merchant...

I use manual approval and I disagree with Id2k. In Manual there is no automatic decline, ( at least none I know about). When I see a suspect affiliate i leave him as not approved, (pending) I write him and then if he writes back he is then moved to approved.
If he does not respond.... Declined.
Hey heres an update for you all.
A couple of months ago we got into a discussion concerning dropping affiliates after so many months of no activity. The top affiliates told me to keep track.
Ok, I have been running a bonus campaign for this past 2 months. Achieve three sales and get it. Out of all the past inactive affiliates I got 11 that got a link up. Not to say they made any sales but at least they got a link up. :-)
Pretty dismal results ;-(
I still say that after 6 months or so and no links the chance are about nill that they ever will be active.
