Multi-Level Affiliate Programs
This means that your affiliates can have their own affiliates to further promote your business. There is no limit to the number of levels you and your affiliates can attain.
Multi-Level Commission Structures
Create unique commission groups to assign to your affiliates. Each commission group can have its own commission structure. This enables you to reward "high performers" or even create "special status" affiliate members.
Robust Commission Scheduling
Commissions can be set across all products, across categories, or across individual products. Commissions can be percentage or fixed price based. This allows YOU to dictate your commission schedule with NO restrictions! In addition, we also support commissions based on impressions and click-throughs.
Tight integration into your order processing and inventory. The affiliate app will only mark commissions once the order has been shipped and will deduct commissions if the product is returned. You pay commissions only on the applicable products, not on tax, nor shipping, nor handling.
Commissions are paid at the order-line level, not the order level. So if an affiliated order is marked to cancel just a few orderlines, your affiliate will rest assured knowing they will still be compensated for the valid orderlines.
Administration and Reporting Tools
The affiliate app makes it easy to see the progress of your affiliate program with detailed reports and graphs. From yearly views to daily views, you have all the reports necessary to efficiently and effectively manage your affiliate program. In addition, your affiliates also have a robust amount of tabular and visual reports to help guide their promotion of your business.
Our Affiliate Extension software allows your organization to create online marketing programs that rewards the affiliate's marketing efforts. Build valuable additional exposure for your organization to establish mind-share, branding and awareness.
The major advantage with affiliate programs is that there are no huge upfront costs for banner and display advertising similar to SEM. Your affiliate program offers an incentive (a commission based on one of our supported compensation methods) for other entities to advertise your site. Entities (websites, link shares, organizations, etc.) that join are called affiliates and they only earn the incentive / commission based on the rules you define.
Our Affiliate Extension allows you to offer your affiliates several marketing options, the most popular being banners ads and text links. You pay your affiliates using our built-in accounting features only after the results of their marketing have come in i.e. $200 of sales, or 5,000 clicks, or 10,000 impressions. The more entities that join your affiliate program, the more traffic and exposure you get.
