To set up this program and make it live or to test, you need to follow two steps:

  • Step 1: Creating a Program

  • Step 2: Assigning an Affiliate to the program

Step 1: Creating a Program

  • You also have the option to specify start and end date to set validity for the campaigns.

Offering Affiliate Commission:

Details of configurations are:

  • Affiliate Commission type - choose the commission type as "Simple"

  • Set the "Percentage Per Sale" as 10. You also have other options available like Fixed or No Commission (If "Advanced" is chosen as the commission type, the offering will vary, such as "Number of Referrals per affiliate/ amount," which provides Tiered Commissions or more flexibility).

  • Enable recurring options - enable this checkbox and select "Lifetime" to provide a 5% commission for all orders placed by a customer for lifetime. Alternatively, you can choose "X Number of Orders" and set a value (e.g., 5), allowing the affiliate to earn commission on the first 5 orders plus the initial customer order, totalling 6.

  • Customer Discount Type - choose the discount type as "Percentage Discount" and set the value as 5. You also have other options to set like Fixed Cart, Fixed Product Discount or No Discount.

NOTE: Affiliates will receive a 10% commission regardless of whether customers purchase Product A. Affiliates earn commissions by simply making customers purchase using affiliate link or code. Meanwhile, customers must purchase Product A to receive a 5% discount on product A.

Step 2: Assigning an Affiliate to the program
