Commission set to 10% but commission showing as 100%

Posted in

So I am having a number of problems with my recently purchased affiliate pro plugin. These are as follows:
1. In screenshot 1 and 2, I have assigned two affiliates a 10% commission each for every purchase of a given product, in this case Scot Johnston will make 10% on a 715 gold language course and Bruce test a 10% on the conversation class. However when a test user clicked on the affiliate link of bruce and made a purchase of a gold course and a conversation class he received a commission for both products instead of just the conversation class.

2. This brings me to the next two screenshots 3 and 4, the cost for a gold course is €715 and a conversation class is €14. So technically for those two purchases made through the bruce link, bruce should have only recieved a €1.4 commission. However he received €729. Even if both products had been attributed to Bruce this still would have only resulted in a €72.9 commission.

3. Continuing on with screenshot 3, only two commissions were credited to the bruce affiliate account but screenshots 6,7 and 8 show that 3 additional purchases were made on that link but were not credited with a commission. Very strange that the purchase made on 03/01/2019 @ 11:12 (screenshot 5) was closed but no commission was given despite this.

4.Screenshot 9, how does an affiliate user change the text Affiliate link to something more attractive?

5. If a client clicks on an affiliate link, buys a product and then logs out and then logs back in again a day later how do I ensure that the affiliate keeps receiving money from the same client despite being logged out and not having clicked the affiliate link again?

Thanks very much

    Hey there,
    Thanks for your questions!

    Unfortunately, I can’t see your screenshots here, so could you perhaps upload them somewhere (e.g. Dropbox) and paste the links in this topic or send them over to our email at help [at] itthinx [dot] com? That’d be great!

    Meanwhile, I would recommend the plugin documentation pages if you haven’t had the chance to read them yet. I think this one might help clarify a bit the issue from your first three questions, though I need to see the screenshots to be sure.

    For question 4, I’m guessing you’re referring to

    Use this code to embed your affiliate link:
    '<a href="" rel="nofollow">Affiliate Link</a>'

    In which case the affiliate user needs to change the text between the tags when using the link. For example, you can have

    '<a href="" rel="nofollow">YOUR AMAZING LINK</a>'

    which would show as YOUR AMAZING LINK instead when pasted on a page.

    You can also read the docs page on the [affiliates_affiliate_link] shortcode for more options regarding affiliate links.

    As for question 5, if I’m reading you right, that should depend on the Referral timeout you’ve set under Affiliates > Settings > Referrals. There’s an awesome doc page that you can check about that too 🙂
