Commission rates are based on the “Commission Structure” and are tied in with “Offers”. You can set different commission rates to specific “Offers”. You can do so by editing the “Commission Amount” for “Offers” that you created.
We currently support the following commission types:
Percent of sale: Commission is based on the amount of sales revenue that affiliates generate.
Flat rate per order: The commission is the same in all cases, on a per order basis.
Flat rate per item: The commission is the same in all cases, on a per item basis.
Tiered: These offers allow finer control over an affiliate's commission based on how much revenue they've driven. It allows you to set up several tiers based on revenue which themselves are flat rate offer or percent of sale. Essentially, commission rate automatically changes based on volume of sales. Keep in mind that when you reset the offers, the tier is cleared for an affiliate.
