Where to access Affiliate Portal Settings
The Affiliate Portal settings are found in the main Setup tab > Settings > Affiliate Portal Settings
Twitter API Settings
In this section, there are a number of settings to modify the user experience or additional features available for affiliates in the affiliate portal. Settings here include the following and several more:
- Only allow affiliate postbacks : Restrict affiliates from placing HTML pixels system-wide if you are using postbacks on all offers.
- Disable affiliate pixel placement : Prevent affiliates from placing pixels in their Affiliate Portal at all. Only admins can place affiliate pixels with this setting enabled.
- Affiliate alert subscription : Allowing affiliates to subscribe to alerts created by an admin user.
- Auto approve pixels : CAKE will automatically approve any affiliate-placed pixels
Affiliate Dashboard Settings
These settings add, modify or remove widgets in the affiliate portal dashboard. We'll highlight just a couple below.

Affiliate Reports Settings
These settings modify available reports or reporting displays in the Affiliate Portal. Some of those settings include:
- Media Type Visibility : A setting that appends the media type to the campaign name displayed in the Affiliate Portal.
- Timezone : A setting available only for CAKE enterprise clients that allows affiliates to see reports in the timezone set on their contact card. When an affiliate contact does change their timezone, a message will display that "Exported reports will reflect the global timezone ([Client's Timezone])"
If Ecommerce is licensed, 2 options are available here to:
- Show Feeds : allowing affiliates to compile their own product feeds
- Hide Transaction Inquiry Visibility : removing the ability of affiliates to generate order inquiries.
Last but not least, this is a secondary third party URL that can be incorporated into the Affiliate Portal. What's entered here can be displayed one of 2 ways based on the column location. If the column location is 'Left Nav' it will display as a sub-tab in the left hand navigation bar (you can see this display method in the Third Party Link section). The other 2 options are widgets in the Affiliate Portal dashboard, either on the left or right assuming the browser window is wide enough to accommodate 2 columns. If the browser window is too small, CAKE will automatically cut down the dashboard display to 1 column.
