Once registration is enabled, any affiliate can sign up on the affiliate's sign up page. Once an affiliate sign-ups completing the registration form, he'll be sent a confirmation letter via email:
In the Admin panel, you'll see such an affiliate in not-active status. Once the affiliate follows the link which he has received via a confirmation letter, he'll be assigned with active status and can start working with your offers.
Disabled - nobody can register. You can only add Affiliates manually or via the Import option. You can type a text in the 'Text for disabled registration' field to make your affiliates aware of the fact, that registration is disabled currently.
Pre-moderation - you can allow or disallow requests for registration individually.
Once registration is pre-moderation, any affiliate is allowed to sign up on the affiliate's sign up page. Once an affiliate sign-ups are completing the registration form, he'll be sent a confirmation letter via email.
In the Admin panel, you'll see such an affiliate in not-active status. Once the affiliate follows the link, he has received via a confirmation letter, he'll be assigned with on-moderation status and awaits your approval.
