Note: This feature is only available to users with SaaS features enabled on their account.
Publishers can now create 'internal' campaigns that run only on their own websites. Any revenue generated by these campaigns will show in the Statistics tabs, but Publishers will not receive payment for them.
As a publisher, you can use this feature to run campaigns promoting internal offers or those from a third-party advertiser that you deal with directly.
How internal campaigns work
Internal campaigns can only run on ad zones using the same account they are created on.
Though revenue generated by internal campaigns will show in the Statistics tabs, no payments will be made to the Publisher for them. In the same way, there is also no cost for running them.
The revenue from internal campaigns will not show in the Advertiser or Publisher Payments tabs.
Minimum prices will not apply to internal campaigns and revenue share does not apply to them. Publishers will always get 100% of their value.
