Step 2: Click the Accounts tab.

Step 4: Click Vendor Settings.

How do Commission Groups work with the Affiliates Require Approval Setting
Sellers can use Commission Groups without setting their account to Affiliates Require Approval.
However, If your account is set to Affiliates Require Approval, deleting a commission group will block affiliates in the commission group from promoting and render all affiliate links unusable.
If your account is not set to Affiliates Require Approval, affiliates in the deleted commission group will earn the standard commission.
If your account is set to Affiliates Require Approval, you must add an affiliate to a commission group before they can start promoting. Since affiliates will not be able to get a HopLink for your offer or product from the ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace, it is a good idea to provide them with a link to an affiliates tools page with a form for them to submit their name and contact information. This process allows sellers to vet affiliates before adding them to a commission group.

Affiliates Require Approval and the ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace
Once the Affiliates Require Approval feature is enabled, affiliates are not able to create a HopLink for the seller directly from the ClickBank Affiliate Marketplace. Once this feature is enabled, sellers must approve affiliates before they can begin promoting. Thus, it is important to provide affiliates with clear instructions on their Affiliates Tools Page on how to contact a seller if they wish to promote their product.
