Multi Tier Affiliate Commission Tracking
Multi tier affiliate commission tracking in AShop Software calculates
commissions for affiliates both when they refer customers and when they recruit new
affiliates that refer customers.
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. Multi tier commissions
are paid to each affiliate who signs up other affiliates (who earn
the tier one commissions for direct referral sales). The tier 2
commissions are set per product by an amount or percentage of the product
price while the tiers above 2 are defined by a "lower by" setting, which makes each
additional tier recieve the tier 2 commission minus the "lower by" value.
The multi tier amount per order is typically a much smaller amount
compared to the tier 1 commission rate, however when multiplied by numerous
affiliate signups, it creates a powerful incentive to promote your affiliate sales program.
How multi tier Affiliate Commissions Work.
- Tier-1 commissions are set by percentage or dollar
amount per product.
- Tier-2 commissions are set by a percentage or dollar
amount per product.
- Tier-3,4,5... commissions are calculated by lowering the
second tier by a set amount per tier.
- Every affiliate can potentially earn tier-1 and/or
multi tier commissions.
- Tier-1 commissions are earned by direct sales
- Affiliates earn multi tier commissions from sales
of other affiliates who signed up through them.
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 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.
Each affiliate places a sign up form link and a sales link on his
or her web site. 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 or affiliates that have signed up through
the link of an affiliate they have recruited.
