OverviewBack to top
Affiliate marketing is the fastest method to increase sales and explode your profits when selling products or services online. An affiliate program is an automated advertising system that will promote your products or services around the clock. Affiliates will join your system, promote your products and your website will get more traffic. Once customers come through the affiliate link and use the coupon codes that affiliates share to buy products, affiliates will get commissions based on a specific rate.
Magestore Affiliate Plus extension is one of the best tools that helps build up your wanted affiliate marketing system right on your Magento site. There are 3 packages available: Standard, Platinum, and Ultimate. Standard package has the most basic functions while Platinum and Ultimate package have more advanced features.
Besides including all the standard features, Platinum Edition gives you more useful features which are empowered by 4 plugins. This Platinum edition is the most popular one in comparison with Standard and Ultimate editions of Affiliate Plus. Let’s find out its detailed features below!
HOW AFFILIATE PLUS - PLATINUM EDITION WORKS
In details, the platinum version of Affiliate Plus helps you:
1. Set up commissions, discount and payout requirements
With our Affiliate module, you can choose the commission type to be fixed or percentage and easily add the preferred rate. Besides, you can differentiate commission/ discount levels of the first order and following ones.
You are also able to set "payout requirement" which is the minimum amount of commission balance that an affiliate must reach before they can request to withdraw money.
Another interesting feature is that if you suspect your affiliates’ reliability, you can choose to hold their commissions for a period of time.
Finally, once an affiliate has succeeded in referring a customer to your store, he can be entitled to the whole-life commissions from that customer’s transactions. For example, when a Customer is introduced to buy your products through affiliate A for his first time and through affiliates B, C the second time, third time, etc., this feature can allow you to add commission for A only.
