When setting up your network, there are several settings that you want to set to make sure your network is configured to your liking. Here are some settings to set at the network level that are usually important when running your account.
In HasOffers, go to Company > Customize Application. In the Settings panel on the next page, click Application to find the settings for your entire network. We suggest going through the following list of settings as you get started. Don’t worry, none of these settings are permanent; they can be changed at any time.

This is the name of your network that is used throughout the application and in email correspondence with affiliates and advertisers. You set this name during the sign-up process, but double check that this is the name that you want to use. We recommend using the casual name of your network. For example, use “MyCashAds” instead of “MyCashAds, Inc.”.
Keep in mind changing the network name does not change the default application domain, which uses the network ID that you set on sign-up (for example, http://NETWORKID.hasoffers.com) The network ID value cannot be changed once the account is created.
This is the email that affiliates & advertisers can use to reach out to you on the Feedback and Contact pages in their interfaces. They will also have access to the contact information to their account managers if you have enabled account management, but it is a good idea to double check this setting to make sure that you have an email account that can be easily accessed by you to provide support for your affiliates.
Not everyone speaks English, and you might be focusing your network to countries where English is not commonly spoken. We have you covered! With this setting, you can choose from the following 15 languages:
- Chinese (Simplified)
If the language that you want to use is not listed, or you want to modify the wording for an existing translation, you can do so by clicking Upload custom PO files below the setting. To learn more, check out our article on Internationalization.
Allow Multiple Languages
If you have an enterprise account, this setting lets you set the desired language at the user level. This means affiliates and advertisers can have their own language preference set instead of using a default language set by the network.
Like the languages setting, you can modify what currency you want to use for your network depending on what country you are appealing to. We offer 68 of the most commonly used currencies from around the world. Picking a new currency will not do a currency exchange automatically, the value set for revenue and payout in the offers will remain the same.
For example, setting an offer with a payout of $10 in USD to Euros results in a payout of $10 EUR. At the time of publication, these are not the same amounts. When changing the currency, make sure to update existing offers to the correct payout and revenues that equate to the new currency.
If you want to set the currency payout at the offer, then this setting will let you accomplish this (for enterprise accounts only.) This will also break up affiliate and advertiser invoices up by different currencies when you are generating invoices.
Network Time Zone
This setting is very useful when looking at stat and conversion reports to see when clicks and conversions came in. The Data Audit Logs also use these value to determine when a setting changed. This is a very important setting, as the ad server uses this setting to set a timestamp for clicks and conversion instead of using GMT.
We recommend setting your default timezone before driving traffic through your account. Doing so prevents the possibility of overlapping stats due to time changes. Changing this later on won’t cause disruptions to tracking, but you may see overlapping stats (if you choose an earlier time zone default) or a gap in stats (if you choose a later time zone).
Affiliates, advertisers, and other employees can choose their own default timezone setting to suit their location, and their stats are adjusted based on this setting.
