Multi Tier Affiliate Commission Tracking
Multi tier affiliate commission tracking in AShop Software calculates different types of commissions. Each affiliate tier promotes your online business in a different way.
Tier one commissions are earned by affiliates who promote your products. Tier one commissions are set per product by an amount or percentage of the product price and are paid to affiliates for referring customers who order products directly from your site through affiliate links.
Tier two, three, four... commissions are earned by affiliates who promote your affiliate sales program. This type of commission is paid to each affiliate who signs up other affiliates (who earn the tier one commissions for direct referral sales). The amount per order for this commission is typically a much smaller amount compared to the tier 1 commission rate, however when multiplied by numerous affiliate sign ups, it creates a powerful incentive to promote your affiliate sales program to earn commission from a downline of affiliates they have recruited.
How Multi Tier Affiliate Commission Tracking Works
Affiliate A signs up and places a sign up link on his web site.
Affiliate B signs up through Affiliate A.
Affiliate C signs up through Affiliate B.
When a customer buys something through a link on Affiliate A's site, Affiliate A will receive the tier-1 commission rate for each product that is ordered.
When a customer buys something through a link on Affiliate B's site, Affiliate B will receive the tier-1 commission rate for each product that is ordered and Affiliate A will receive the second tier commission.
When someone buys something from a link on Affiliate C's site Affiliate C will receive the tier-1 commission rate for each product ordered, Affiliate B will receive the second tier commission and Affiliate A will receive the third tier commission, if any.
Each affiliate places a sign up form link and a sales link on his or her web site or uses your sales pages, which can be personalized for each affiliate. Each affiliate earns the tier-1 commissions for AShop sales that come through his sales link and also earns a smaller commission for sales by the affiliates that have signed up through his or her sign up form link.
