Do you want to reward your existing Affiliates for referring new Affiliates to your program? If so, then enabling the Two Tier Commissions setting in your account is the answer!
You can turn on Two-Tier Commissions by going to MY ACCOUNT > Advanced Settings. From there, if you click the 'Commissions' tab the first item listed will be Two-Tier Commissions. If you click 'change' you'll then have the ability to activate Two-Tier Commissions by selecting the 'Yes' check-box.
There are two different commission structures that you can choose for your Two-Tier Commissions, and you have the ability to set up only one, or both of these structures:
1. Two Tier Percentage: The percentage entered here will be the commission percentage you'd like to reward the referring Affiliate for every transaction the Affiliate they referred generates for your program. For example, if Affiliate 'A' refers Affiliate 'B' to your program, every time Affiliate 'B' generates a transaction for your program, Affiliate 'A' will receive a commission percentage in the amount that you specify during setup.
2. Two Tier Bounty: The flat amount entered here will be the one-time commission amount that you'd like to reward Affiliate 'A' for referring Affiliate 'B' to your program. So, if your Two Tier Bounty was $10.00, then Affiliate 'A' would receive a one-time commission of $10.00 for referring Affiliate 'B' to your program. As a reminder, unlike the Two Tier Percentage which is rewarded for every transaction made by the referred Affiliate, the Two Tier Bounty is a one-time commission for each referred Affiliate.
You can choose to utilize one, or both of the above commission structures. Please note that if you do choose to only utilize one of these commission structures, you'll still need to enter '0' in the field for the structure you're not using (fields cannot be left blank).
Once you've turned on Two-Tier Commissions your Affiliates will be able to search for and grab your dedicated Two-Tier link, and when they refer an Affiliate to your program and join through this link the referring Affiliate will receive their Two-Tier Commission.
Your Affiliates can find your dedicated Two-Tier link by following these steps:
1. Go to LINKS > GET A LINK/BANNER
2. Search for your program in the Merchant Search bar (Affiliates can search for Merchant programs by Name or ID)
3. Hover over 'More Links' listed on the right side of the page (listed after Text Links, Banners, etc.)
4. The Affiliate can then click 'Two Tier Text' which will pull up the appropriate Text Link to share with the Affiliates they’d like to refer to your program
