Use attributes in format region_from and region_to= to change the languages showing in language switcher.
Available regions are:
europe_from europe_to
asia_from asia_to
mideast_from mideast_to

Example:
europe_from=0 europe_to=22 will put all languages (ordered in language switcher settings) from 1 to 21 to Europe region:
asia_from=22 asia_to=25 will put all languages from 23 to 24 (so only 2) into Asia region.

Fraud protection

Post Affiliate Pro’s fraud protection system monitors all transactions and automatically declines fraudulent ones without annoying alerts or pop-ups.

The purpose of setting up fraud protection into a company’s workflow is to detect fraudsters. The use of an affiliate fraud protection system that detects even advanced fraud schemes can help you significantly reduce losses by allowing you to uncover fraudsters and avoid paying for bad leads and impressions.

It not only provides protection against fraudulent orders but also protects against repeated orders (e.g. when a customer refreshes the “Thank you” page, where the tracking code has been integrated).

Click fraud protection

Click fraud protection is separated into multiple levels:

  1. You can recognize repeated clicks from the same IP address and decline or not save commissions for those clicks.
  2. You can decline or choose not to save the clicks that come from banned IP addresses.
  3. You can reject or not save the clicks coming from blacklisted countries (part of the Post Affiliate Pro GeoIP feature).
