Managing Supplier Payouts and Caps


In this article, we outline how you can update individual Supplier Payouts and Caps.  It is more common than not that you would pay your Suppliers different amounts per lead and that Suppliers will have their own Caps (quota).  This is managed by editing the Campaign, the screen looks like this (below):

By default, all Active Suppliers from your Admin > Suppliers screen are listed.  If you want to block any Suppliers from submitting leads to a Campaign, you can do so here.  They will be placed into the Inactive tab within this table.

Inactive Suppliers
When you make a Supplier Inactive from this screen, it means the Supplier cannot submit leads into this Campaign.  It does not mean the Supplier has been made Inactive at account level. If a Supplier is made Inactive from this screen and attempts to submit a lead, they will get the API error message "Supplier is not authorised to post to this Campaign."  To make a Supplier inactive, you should select the Supplier(s) and with selected, click "disable".

Payout & OOH Payout
The Payout is the amount that you pay your Suppliers.  If you pay your Suppliers a different amount for out of hours, you would enter this into the OOH Payout field.  For example, you may wish to pay Suppliers 50% less for leads received between 21:00hrs - 08:00hrs.

Supplier Caps
You have the flexibility to add Monthly, Weekly, Daily and Hourly Caps to specific Suppliers within a Campaign. This is a handy setting if you want to restrict the amount of leads based on either interval.  Like Campaign Caps; Monthly, Weekly, Daily and Hourly Caps refresh each respective timeframe.  The Total Cap will remain as is until you edit it.  In addition, the value in the field is defaulted to 0 which means there is no cap currently set and unlimited leads can enter the Campaign.

Import Access
If you have granted permission to a Supplier to import leads, you will be able to specify this at Campaign level on the Supplier screen above using the toggle button.  In the example above, AgencyX is the only supplier that has permission to import leads from their portal.


Note:  Campaign Caps must be enabled in order to manage Supplier Caps
