Create an approval form

Approval process

You can have your program available to everyone who registers or introduce an approval process.
If approvals are enabled, after registering, each partner will be presented with an approval form that they have to fill out and submit before they can access the program.

The program owner will see pending approval requests and will have to review and either approve or reject them.
Only approved partners will get access to the partner portal and the unique affiliate link to promote the product.

To create a custom approval form:

  1. Log in to Partnero.
  2. Navigate to Programs and choose the program you’d like to work with.
