New Super Fast Offer Setup With Prosper202 Pro DNI
By Nana Gilbert-Baffoe, View comments - Oct 06, 2015

One problem we see affiliates struggling with on an almost daily basis is the setting up of tracking links, postbacks and pixels for a new offer.

At best it takes a few minutes, in the worst cases we've seen it take weeks and months of back and forth. When you add up all the money that's not being made because of offer setup delays, we wouldn't be surprised if the total yearly lost revenue was in the millions of dollars.

We knew there had to be a better, less frustrating and error prone way of setting up offers and today we are excited and happy to share our fix for this problem. We call it Direct Network Integration or DNI for short.

Introducing Prosper202 Pro with DNI

DNI simplifies and takes out all error causing complexities of the offer setup process by connecting directly to your network via APIs. After a quick setup process, you will be able to search through, and view details about all the offers available to you in your affiliate account.

Take a look at how quickly you can get an offer setup. This includes setting up the postback pixel.

G4Offers our exclusive network launch partner

Our exclusive launch partner for DNI is G4Offers. They're a unique CPA Affiliate Network that features a wide variety of verticals and offers. To test out the power of DNI, sign up for an account with G4Offers and get started today.

  • Solution: Mac Keyboard input not working on AWS Workspaces
    By Nana Gilbert-Baffoe, View comments - Aug 06, 2015

    Most of my dev work is done on my Mac, but every once in a while I need to check out stuff on a PC or from another computer. For that I use Amazon Workspaces. This is also a great solution for foreign affiliates that need a US based ip and machine for testing geo restricted offers.

    A few days ago keyboard input stopped working. I rebooted the server and my laptop multiple times, installed a new client, rebuilt the server and still nothing worked.

    Finally today, I searched online to see if this was something others were experiencing, and found out I wasn't alone. From my research it looks like it's a problem in Os X.

    For me, the fix for this was quick and easy. Here's the thread where I found my fix. It worked on Os X Yosemite 10.10.4 even though the thread talks about Mavericks 10.9

    The command I used in the terminal was the following:

    sudo sysctl -w > /dev/null 2>&1

    After that, everything started working correctly without a reboot of any sort. The highlighted fix on this page included extra stuff that I didn't use. So if this command doesn't work for you, also try the highlighted fix. I also suspect that doing this in the terminal is not permanent and will need to be done again after a reboot. To make it more permanent you may have to enter this link into you /etc/sysctl.conf file.

    I thought I'd share it here, because it could save you a few hours or days of searching. Additionally, it's part of my new effort to learn something new and teach what I learn every day.

    1. Mobvista

    One of the fastest growing mobile affiliate focused networks is Mobvista, and if you are not already doing business with them you should be. They have a huge collection of premium offers, weekly payments via a wide range of payment options such as alipay and the expected bank/wire transfer Most importantly, they are a well funded stable company with tens of millions of dollars in the bank and over 260 team members in their Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Beijing and San Francisco offices.

    3. Dedicated Media

    Where do the best mailers turn to for offers from the big brands you know and trust? Traditionally, it's been difficult to get these as CPA offers, however Dedicated Media's bread and butter is with performance based campaigns from top name brands that historically have not been available on a CPA format. They have been able to leverage relationships stemmed from it's display side of the house to secure the brands offerings on a CPA model. Meet them at Booth # 5008 in the exhibit hall, and if you see Brian let him know we said hi.

    4. Adbeat

    5. OfferVault

    If you've ever had a need to find an offer quickly, or make sure you are getting the highest payout for offers you are running, then you better be using OfferVault.  It saves you from having to search all over trying to find the offers you need, and when you need that extra $1 to hit profitability, but cant get it from your current network, a quick search is usually all that's needed to find a network with the payout you need. Make sure to meet Mark and the rest of the OfferVault team today at the Meet Market at Table #818.

    Announcing Prosper202 Pro Version 1.9.16
    By Nana Gilbert-Baffoe, View comments - Jul 27, 2015

    We just launched Prosper202 Pro 1.9.16 over the weekend and we're excited to share what we've been working on with you. If you a Prosper202 Pro client and have our 1-click upgrade functionality installed and working you should automatically get the version installed. You can also login to the dashboard at to download the latest version of Prosper202 Pro.

    Here's what's new in Prosper202 1.9.16

    Our biggest update is that you can now install Prosper202 Pro in a subdirectory. You are no longer limited to using the root directory or a dedicated subdomain. This means it's now much easier to have Prosper202 installed on the domain that matches your landing pages. On some traffic sources this can be advantageous. But it's also going to improve tracking of certain visitors better since Prosper202 cookies will no longer be 3rd party cookies.

    In Prosper202 Pro 1.9.16, you will now get automatically redirected to the page you were looking to view before you logged in. This is more of a convenience tweak, but any think the streamlines your day help you become more efficient over all.

    One of the features we've been looking to add for a while now is an official Prosper202 Plugin for Wordpress. We've created a very tight two way integration between Wordpress and Prosper202 Pro. This means landing pages you create in Wordpress will automatically get created and setup in Prosper202. All landing pages you create in Prosper202 will also be synced up with Wordpress so you can simply pick from a dropdown and start working. Our plugin ensures that you won't have to manually setup the LP Javascript code needed for tracking. Additionally, we created short codes for linking out to your offers.

    ISP And Carrier information available in download report. So if you have purchased and installed the additional database from Maxmind, you can now see the data from this in your reports.

    There are new offers available from networks that require more transparency between you, the network and the offer owner. Some networks are now requesting referrer information to be passed in via a subid tracking variable. We've added two new tokens to Prosper202 Pro to allow you easily comply with these requests, they are [[referer]] & [[referrer]].

    We've had an easy way to add all our supported tokens on the campaign setup page. However there are other pages that support the insertion of tokens such as the Landing page setup section. With this update you will never have to manually type in the tokens.

    We also spent a lot of working on speeding up our reports and you will notice a substantial boost when running reports on the spy and visitor view pages.

    Finally we have a series of bug fixes and improvements, they are listed below:
    • Fixed: Pagination display improvements
    • Fixed: Modal window closing too quickly
    • Fixed: For split testing you can use both ALL or all as values
    • Fixed: utm_source and utm_medium being switched
    • Fixed: Referer report was returning too many results
    • Fixed: Pixels were not deleting correctly on step 1

    Quick Prosper202 Pro FAQ

    A: Yes, Prosper202 Pro is a drop in replacement for the free Prosper202. Once you upgrade it will convert all your settings to the new version and even port over your old data. Once it's ported, you will enjoy all the benefits we posted about above as well as blazing fast reporting.

    A: No Prosper202 Pro is still fully self-hosted just like the version of Prosper202 you are using right now and have used for many years.
