Upload the CSV File
To upload Affiliates through a CSV file, go to Settings > Import Affiliates and click the Import Affiliates button.
Note: Once you are there, you can also download the template that will help you fill in the file.
Wait for the uploaded CSV file to execute.
If the file was created correctly, you will see the status "Completed" and a value greater than zero in the "Affected Entries" field. You will also see the number of created or updated Affiliates.
With regards to importing Advertisers, the steps are the same as with Affiliates, however, you will find and execute this option in Settings > Import Advertisers.
