Product-Specific Commissions

To handle product specific commissions you must:

  1. Define the individual products and the commission amount and type
  2. Modify your sales tracking code to pass the products that were purchased and the amount of each product that was purchased

Defining Product-Specific Commissions

  1. Begin by choosing Affiliate Types/Rates.
  2. Next click the Add Product-Specific Commission option
  3. Enter a product name/description. 
  4. Enter the Product Code that matches the unique product code or ID used in your shopping cart.
  5. Choose a specific Affiliate Type or individual Affiliate Type to apply this commission.  If you setup the same Product Code for "All Affiliate Types" and a specific Affiliate Type, the specific Affiliate Type always overrides the "All Affiliate Types" option.
  6. Specify whether the commission will be flat rate or a percent of the sale.
  7. Enter the applicable tiered rates.  For Percent of Sale enter as a decimal.  For example, 5% would be entered as .05.

Viewing Product-Specific Commission Rates

To view existing Product-Specific Commission Rates, click Affiliate Types/Rates then View Product-Specific Commission Rates


Setting up the Sales Tracking Code to pass the product-specific commissions

The tracking code is obtained by clicking Tracking Code/Sales Tracking Code.  The standard code looks like this:

<img border="0" src="http://yourdomain/aw.aspx?Task=AddSale&Order_Number=12345
&Total_Amount=55.00&Country=USA&Optional1=&Optional2=&Optional3=" width="1" height="1">

To that code you must append each Product Code and the amount paid for the product using &P1=X&PA1=Y where P1 is the Product Code for the first item purchased and PA1 is the product Amount.  Here is an example with multiple products:

Shopping Cart Item Product Code Product Amount Example
1 Gold $1147.30 &P1=Gold&PA1=1147.30
2 Silver $18.07 &P2=Silver&PA2=18.07
3 Platinum $1731.00 &P3=Platinum&PA3=1731.00

Putting this example into the tracking code your code would become:

<img border="0" src="http://yourdomain/aw.aspx?Task=AddSale&Order_Number=12345
&Total_Amount=55.00&Country=USA&Optional1=&Optional2=&Optional3=
&P1=Gold&PA1=1147.30&P2=Silver&PA2=18.07&P3=Platinum&PA3=1731.00
" width="1" height="1">

The appended code has been highlighted in BOLD.

 


Where can Affiliates view the Product-Specific Commission Rates?

Affiliates can view the product-specific rates in their Affiliate Console by clicking Commission Rates


Notes:  If the Total_Amount variable that is passed is greater than the sum of each individual products, the difference is paid out at the default commission rate setup for the affiliate.  For example, if you pass 3 products totaling $500 and the Total_Amount is passed as $600 the remaining $100 is paid out at the default commission rate set for the Affiliate Type.

When editing a Sale in the admin console a list of Products that were treated as product-specific commissions are shown along with the amount for each.
