Welcome to Awin

This document has been written to guide you through the steps involved in setting up your programme with us.


Pay the setup fee

Before we are able to launch your programme and go live on the network, you are required to settle the invoice for your setup fee. You can pay this by one of the following methods:

  • BACS Transfer
  • Credit/Debit Card
  • Cheque (made payable to Digital Window Ltd)

If you have any queries regarding payment, please contact our Accounts Department (contact details are available on the final page of this guide).

Login to your account

You will be sent an invite by one of the Technical Services Analysts which will allow you to create a User Account. By using this user account you will be able to manage any other advertiser accounts you have with Awin.

Completing your Advertiser Profile

You will need to complete your Advertiser Profile before your program is launched on the network, as it will allow you to promote yourselves to publisher s. Please view here for further details on Advertiser Profiles.


On the right of the page below the main navigation menu are the reporting functions for your account. These reports will contain all the historic performance and transaction data for your programme.

Technical Setup

There are a number of technical aspects which will need to be completed before your programme can go live onto the Awin network.

These steps can be found on the Advertiser Integration Summary page.

How to add Commission Groups

If you would like to split up your commission rates by product groups, you can do this by creating commission groups within your program. Please view here for further details on how to do this.

Banners & Creative Setup

Awin recommends that you offer at least one banner for each size within your account. We support GIF, JPG/JPEG, PNG image banners as well as HTML5 Banners. Please view the My Creative - Advertiser Guide for further instructions.

We recommend that you avoid including URL extensions such as .com or within the banner design as this can dissuade publishers from displaying the creative. It is also important that telephone numbers or any other information that may encourage customers to purchase offline is not included.
