Use SubIDs to distinguish between different placements within the same source (e.g. to distinguish between different Facebook ads, Google Ads or keywords, email lists, etc.)

Unsubscribe Links are located at the bottom of each offer screen underneath Offer URLs or the offer description.

Any questions regarding suppression files, please contact your Account Manager or email@example.com
Suppression Lists are found at the bottom of each offer screen underneath Offer URLs or the offer description.
If an offer does not contain a suppression list then you may use your own OR use our Global Complainers Suppression List which can be found at the bottom of the dashboard. Any questions regarding suppression files, please contact your Account Manager or firstname.lastname@example.org
From and Subject Lines are found at the bottom of each offer screen. You will see two boxes with From and Subject line as the title.
If you do not see from and subject lines or you see a message similar to "Send to AM for Approval", this means custom From/Subject Lines are allowed to be used but will require Approval from someone at SmartADV in order to maintain a level of compliance.
You may submit custom from and subject lines to your assigned Account Manager. You may also send any custom creative requests to email@example.com where our Support Team will review and respond accordingly.

Although your account is active, SmartADV may require some additional information for you to help get you approved for some of our sensitive and "Private" offers. Don't worry, we won't be asking for DNA samples or pulling credit reports.
Your Account Manager will ask to provide your payment information (see How Do I Get Paid below) and will also need to obtain a W9 or W8 which is a form required by the US Government for us to pay you. We have online versions of the form so filling them out is easy.
Our Account Managers are constantly monitoring what offers are working and what Geos and traffic types they are performing best with. While you are free to browse through our offers an expert opinion is just a few keystrokes away should you want some assistance
While most of our offers are available in our network for you to see and apply to run, we often have "Private" offers that are not show for a variety of reasons. The more our Account Managers know about your business, the better then could show you these offers that you would otherwise never see.
We can pay you by ACH (US Banks only), Paypal, Payoneer and Bank Wire. If you have a US Bank, then ACH is your best option as its no cost to you and the others all have fees associated with them
Simply provide your Account Manager with your Paypal or Payoneer email address for payment For ACH and Bank Wires we would need the appropriate Bank Information, including name and address of Bank, their ABA, SWIFT or IBAN as well as the account number and registration.
We offer weekly, semi-monthly and monthly payment terms. There is a $250 minimum. Please discuss with your Account Manager.
We are in the United States and W8s & W9s are forms our Government requires us to have on file to pay anyone. W9s are for US individuals and corporations, W8s are for those outside the US. Its a standard form that we can email you and fill out online and only takes a few minutes to fill out.
