How To Set Up Free Product Links In AShop
Volume Incentives Using
Incremental Quantity Based Pricing
quantity based pricing per product sets the price of one product based
upon either the total quantity of that product OR the total quantity
of all products in the basket. Instead of applying one price based upon the
total quantity, a different price may be applied to each quantity range.
Affiliate And Referral Tracking
Affiliate link marketing, which tracks
commissions is an incentive based marketing system. The store administrator benefits
from increased link popularity, traffic, and orders. Affiliates benefit by earning
commissions, which are directly (tier 1) or indirectly (tier 2) based upon sales
In addition to affiliate link code tracking, AShop supports
a custom 10 character referral code for each affiliate. The referral code
may be entered manually into a text box or included as a parameter in a link URL.
Discount codes may be assigned to each affiliate and then set automatically for
each customer from the referral code. The referral code system combined with discount
code assignment can provide customer incentive, which also credits the referrer
and can be used for print, media, and link URL advertising.
