pertain to version 9 of Ban Man Pro. Click here for
instructions in version 8.
|Ban Man Pro includes a basic
option for advertisers to purchase advertising directly from
your web site. Starting with version 9 a person must
first signup as an advertiser before they can purchase
advertising. Once signed up, all purchasing is handled
from within the advertiser console. Once a purchase is
made, a campaign is automatically created and assigned to
pre-defined zones. The campaign can be set to begin
serving immediately or placed on hold until you approve the
campaign. You can also allow advertisers to upload
their banners. Currently only standard banners are
supported. Please note the purchase option only
collects information and does not process the credit card.
You must manually process the card unless you are using the
Paypal Processing option
which was introduced in version 10.
The online purchasing option should only be used if
your web site uses an SSL certificate and supports
the HTTPS protocol. This is necessary because
advertisers will submit their credit card
information when making a purchase.
How do I implement the online
- You should begin by enabling the
option in Ban Man Pro by selecting Online Orders on the
left navigation bar, then clicking "Online Order Setup".
First determine if you will allow advertisers to signup from
your web site. If you enable that option you will want to
link to the signup page from a location on your web site.
The link to the signup page is indicated at the top of the page.
Alternatively, you may decide to only allow existing advertisers
to purchase advertising. In that case leave the Enable
Advertiser Signup option unchecked and only check the Enable
Advertisers to purchase Advertising option.
- Next, setup the Order Types
for the advertising you will accept.
This is done on the Add Order Type tab. Order Types can be
assigned to specific advertisers if necessary in order to limit
who can purchase what type of advertising. An order type
also defines the campaign properties as a campaign will
automatically be created in Ban Man Pro at the time of purchase.
The campaign can be set to automatic or manual approval.
The campaign will also be assigned to the zones you select.

order and make sure the sale is registered. To place a
test order you must login to the advertiser console as an

has been registered it can be viewed by clicking "Online
Orders". The information should only be access/displayed using the
secure protocol (HTTPS) because the credit card information is
displayed. An email is also sent to the Ban Man Pro
administrator with the information submitted by the
advertiser. The credit card information is excluded from
