Create a program
To start promoting your affiliate campaign, you need to have a program. Our system creates a default program called Standard Affiliate Commission for you with the commission type of Percent of sale = 10%. You can edit that program or add a new program then set it as Default.
Please be noted that there must be at least one program and it must be chosen to be the default program. To create a new program, go to Management > Programs > click Add new, then fill in the required information. Remember to activate that program by turning on the switch "Active". In the Commission structure section, there are three types of commission available:
+ Flat rate per order: Commissions in dollars will be a fixed amount on each order made thanks to the Affiliate (not including extra fee: shipping, tax…)
For example, if you set the commission amount to 10$ per order, when your customer makes a purchase through the referral link, your affiliate will get 10$ commission no matter how much the total sales is.
After an order is marked as fulfilled and paid, its status will be shown on your back-end in the Referrals section with the commission amount.
+ Flat rate per item: Commissions in dollars will be calculated on product unit (not including extra fee: shipping, tax…)
For example, if you set the commission amount to 5$ per item, when a customer makes a purchase of 2 items through the referral link, the affiliate’s commission will be $5 * 2 = 10$.
The referral order status will be updated on your back-end.
+ Percent of sale: Commissions will be calculated based on a percentage of total value made thanks to the Affiliate (not including extra fee: shipping, tax…)
For example, if you set the percentage value to 15%, any order made through the referral link will bring your affiliate a 15% value of the total order amount (not including VAT or other extra fees).
After choosing the proper commission type, fill the suitable amount into the Amount box below then click Save changes.
If you create more than 1 program and then downgrade to the Free plan, the system will deactivate the extra programs (except the default one) and exclude referrals from affiliates in those programs.
