  • Account Summary
    • Account Number - The advertisers account number. Adjacent to the account number is a quick access link that will log you into the users account in Administrator Mode.
      TIP: When you are logged into a publishers account in Administrator mode, the behavior of the account is different than if you were to have logged into the account as the user. For example, hidden channels will be exposed during the ad code creation process in Administrator Mode.

    • Account Status - The current status of the account.
      TIP: The account status for approved accounts with a balance under $1.00 is "Active (Low Volume)" until the account has at least a 1.00 balance. Once an account has a balance of 1.00 or more, the account status changes to "Active".
