Promo Code Monitoring is the process of monitoring your promo codes in all the selected regions. This is used for managing the risk around partners promoting expired or promo codes they are not authorized to promote and allows for remediating with these Partners.
impact.com makes use of Google to find your Promo Codes so results are currently limited to what Google has indexed.
Policies enable you to automate both monitoring and remediation of your promo codes online. If impact.com finds any partners promoting promo codes selected in a policy, the platform will automatically create a violation and send a violation email to that partner.
Before creating a policy, make sure you already have promo codes added to your impact.com program. You can create as many policies as you'd like, but you'll be limited on the amount of promo codes you can monitor depending on the Compliance package purchased for your account.
In the left navigation menu of Protect, select Monitoring → Policies.
Near the top-right, select Create Policy.
Select Promo Code Monitoring.
Input a Policy Name, then select the Violations that apply:
Automatically create a violation if a contracted partner promotes a promo code that is:
Expired — If a partner promotes an expired promo code, a violation is created.
Not Authorized — If a partner promotes a promo code they're not authorized to, a violation is created.
Close violations if promo code is taken down by partner
If the partner removes the violating promo code, impact.com will automatically close the violation.
Automatically send partners who have not completed violations reminder emails
If a partner hasn't completed the action required to clear the violation, they'll receive automated emails from impact.com reminding them.
Archive all ads older than 7 days
If a violation is older than 7 days, impact.com will automatically archive it.
