DACH affilinet Advertiser FAQ's


What is the last date I can migrate to Awin from affilinet?

The last possible date you can migrate from affilinet to Awin is 30 September 2019 unless otherwise agreed.


What is happening to the affilinet platform on 30 September 2019?

Monday 30 September is the last trading day of the affilinet platform. From 01 October, no new transactions will appear in your affilinet program. If you have migrated to Awin, all transactions which are generated via affilinet tracking links and where a publisher partnership is valid, will be forwarded to your new program. You will be able to identify any transactions generated via affilinet tracking in "custom parameter 10. affilinet" within your transaction list.

You will have until 24 October to validate open transactions on your affilinet account.

From 25 October onward, any open transaction you have not been able to validate on your affilinet program will be transferred to your Awin program. You will then be free to accept, amend or decline these orders on Awin via your normal validation process. Please note, all original order dates will be respected in line with any auto-validation period you have on your program.

You will receive the final invoice to settle the balance of your affilinet program in early November.


I have migrated my account from affilinet to Awin using the Awin Pixel. What will happen to my affilinet account from 01 October 2019?

From 01 October, all new transactions will be automatically redirected to your migrated Awin program.

You will be able to validate any pending transactions on your affilinet program until 24 October. After this time, the order validation functionality will no longer be available.

For technical reasons, the log-in to your affilinet account will remain available until 28 February 2020. You will be able to access any historical data until this time, however, we strongly recommend downloading and saving any reports you need as early as possible.


I have migrated my account using the Awin 'Central Tracking System' (CTS) and my affilinet pixel is still in place. Will my tracking still work after 30 September?

Yes, your affilinet tracking pixel will continue to work after 30 September. By activating the Awin CTS tool, we ensure transactions generated via affilinet tracking links and where a publisher partnership is valid, will be forwarded to your new program.

To benefit from the full suite of features available on the Awin platform, please integrate the Awin pixel alongside your existing affilinet pixel at your earliest convenience. Important: do not remove the affilinet tracking pixel, unless otherwise instructed.

Please inform your Awin Account Manager as soon as you have implemented the Awin tracking pixel.


When can I remove my affilinet Pixel?

Please do not remove the affilinet tracking until you have been instructed to do so by your Awin Account Manager.

When you have implemented the Awin Pixel, and all transactions are generated via Awin tracking links, we can begin the process for removing your affilinet pixel. Please contact your Awin Account Manager for more information on this step.

If you have migrated using Awin CTS, you must first integrate the Awin Mastertag before you can remove the affilinet Pixel. Please refer to our Advertiser Tracking Guide for more information about how to integrate the Awin pixel:http://wiki.awin.com/index.php/Advertiser_Tracking_Guide

Once you have implemented the Awin tracking, please reach out to your Awin Account Manager to perform a tracking test.


I have not migrated my account from affilinet to Awin. What will happen to my affilinet account from 01 October 2019?

If you have not migrated your account to Awin, your program will be set to the 'On Hold' status.

You must validate any pending transactions on your affilinet program until 24 October. After this time, the order validation functionality will no longer be available. Any orders you have not validated by this time, will be automatically approved.

You will receive the final invoice to settle the balance of your affilinet program in early November.

For technical reasons, the log-in to your affilinet account will remain available until 28 February 2020. You will be able to access any historical data until this time, however, we strongly recommend downloading and saving any reports you need as early as possible.


Not all of my publishers have changed their tracking to Awin links. What will happen to their transactions after 30 September?

We strongly advise publishers to update their affilinet tracking to Awin links as soon as possible.

Using our automatic redirect system, we guarantee that orders tracked via an affilinet link and where a valid publisher partnership between affilinet and Awin exists, will continue to be forwarded into your Awin program for a limited time period.


What information can I access on affilinet from 01 October 2019?

From 01 October, you will be able to log-in to your affilinet program and access all your normal functionality including affilinet reports and order validations.

From 25 October, you will no longer have access to the order validation functionality.

For technical reasons, the log-in to your affilinet account will remain available until 28 February 2020. You will be able to access any historical data until this time, however, we strongly recommend downloading and saving any reports you need as early as possible.
