Product Level 1 - relates to sales placed by customers that the affiliate directly referred
Product Level 2 - relates to sales placed by customers referred by affiliates that the selected affiliate referred.
Invoice Level 1 and Invoice Level 2 - here you can configure an additional commission to be given to the affiliate upon shipment of the order.
- In the text field, you can input a numerical value. From the drop-down list to the left of the field, you can select this commission to be in terms of either a fixed price (FIXED $) or percentage (%).
- For example, if you enter "5" with the "FIXED $" option selected, then the affiliate will receive a five-dollar commission when a customer referred by him places an order, regardless of the order size (e.g., $5 commission on a $50, $200, or $500 order).If you are using the FIXED $ option, you may want to configure a minimum order on your site, to ensure that the order is not very small, (e.g., you may not want to give a five-dollar commission on a three-dollar order).
- If you enter "5" with the "%" option selected, then the affiliate will receive a five percent commission when a customer referred by him places an order (e.g., $5 commission on a $100 order, $25 commission on a $500 order).
