1. What is a Tiered Commission Structure?

A tiered commission plan incentivizes affiliates to put in extra effort by rewarding them with higher commissions as their performance improves.
Affiliate Tiers allows creating commission tiers with conditions that affiliates must achieve to level up from one program to another. Affiliates can only receive tiered commission when they reach a certain amount/number of total personal sales, total earned commission, or total referred orders.

2. How to set up

To set up Affiliate Tiers, you must first click the Enable checkbox.
There are five types of level-up conditions available:
  • Total personal sales: total sales value that affiliates bring personally and not by their network (both approved and paid commission are counted)
  • Total earned commission value: total value of affiliates' approved and paid commissions
  • Total personally referred orders: total number of orders that affiliates bring personally and not by their network (both approved and paid commission are counted)
  • Monthly total personal sales: total sales value that affiliates bring personally and not by their network in a month (affiliates are downgraded to level 1 each month)
  • Monthly personally referred orders: total number of orders that affiliates bring personally and not by their network in a month (affiliates are downgraded to level 1 each month)
The commission value should be set in ascending order to make sure that the affiliates will level up to programs with higher commissions.
  • A program can only be uniquely set at one level
  • Your maximum number of tiered levels is the number of programs you have

Example

In this setup, the level-up condition is Total personal sales, and there are 3 programs.
  • Affiliates whose total personal sales are less than $1000 will stay still in Program 1 (level 1)
  • Affiliates whose total personal sales are $1000-1999 will be automatically leveled up and moved to Program 2 (level 2)
  • Affiliates whose total personal sales are from $2000 will be automatically leveled up and moved to Program 3 (level 3)
You can't delete a program if it's currently included in Affiliate Tiers. You must first remove the program from Affiliate Tiers if you want to delete it.
