The Banner rotator is a special type of banner that rotates other banners.

When an affiliate inserts a rotator to his page (website), the rotator displays the banners that are assigned to the rotator, so the visitor will see other banner each time he visits the affiliate's page (website).

Activating the feature

This feature is available only in the Professional edition. Users of the Xpress edition can purchase it individually.

The feature has to be activated before it can be used. To activate it navigate in your merchant panel to Configuration -> Features
There click the Activate button next to the Banner rotator feature. If you have  Xpress edition, you have to buy it first.
After this, the feature is activated. Now you will see the Rotator type of banner in the list of available banner types in the Banners Manager.

 

Creating a new banner rotator

A Banner rotator can be created in the same way as the other banners. In your merchant panel navigate to Banners -> Banners manager and click the Add banner button.

In the banner creation screen define the Name of the banner and the Campaign to which the banner is going to be assigned.

After clicking on Create button the banner is saved and you'll get to the editation mode where you can add subbanners that will be rotated in this rotator.


You can add new banners into the rotator by selecting them from the Select Banner drop-down menu, and clicking the Add To Rotator button.
The Rank field sets the banner rank within the rotator, which is the percentage of which banner will be displayed the most time. By default all banners have the same rank.

If you want to display some banners with higher probability than the others, you can edit the rank manually in the list of banners.

The table with the list of banners will give you also the numbers of clicks impressions and CTR (clickthrough ratio) for each subbanner in the rotator.

Now the rotator is created and an affiliate can use it on his pages. From the affiliate's point of view the rotator is just like any other banner, he can Copy & Paste the banner code to his page to get it displayed.
