Fixed and Varible Commision on certain Products

I asked this question before I purchased Enterprise a week ago. I have the 7 Tiers setup and I was told it was possible.

Commission Amount Per sale is 10. Now multi-tier commission goes back 7 levels.

Tier 1 makes sale
Tier 1 commission = $10

Tier 2 makes sale
Tier 1 commission = $5
Tier 2 commission = $10

Tier 3 makes sale
Tier 1 commission = $2
Tier 2 commission = $5
Tier 3 commission = $10

If you tell me how I can start that, I’ll figure out the rest.

Also it’s an online marketplace so there are several products, this commission is only for sales on 1 product.

But also it needs to be allowed to grow to 20 levels, but only the 7 levels relative to the sale are paid.

    Just to make things clear, Am I using the Default Referral Amount? or am I supposed to use the referral amount method and use the product class and then put 10 on the product? or do i use default referral amount and put it on the product?

      If you are using Affiliates Custom Method::Products Amount plugin, you must set in Affiliates->Settings “Referral amount method” and “ACM::products_amount”.
      On each product you must put 10 (that is used as amount not as rate)

    The 10 under referral amount method did not work. It credited the referrer 10x the amount. Is there a way this can just be an amount?

    • antonio September 9, 2013 at 6:32 am #

      In product view, the value is rate, not amount. But you can calculate this, for example:
      If product amount is $200 and you want $10, you must set 0.05 ( 5% )

        Ok, the product is 102.80 calculating 10 produces many decimal places. is there a way to set a fixed amount?

    Hey Really quick when I have you… I know this is out of the scope of this particular question but when people sign up, there’s that website field, is there anyway I can new affiliates put their referrer id in there?

    LIke John Franks has coupon code JF1
    John Referred Mike, When mike goes to the site can I make it so he has the ability to type in JF1 as his referrer?

    • antonio September 9, 2013 at 6:36 am #

      you can add a “coupon” attribute to affiliate John, editing her. Then, you can create a shopping cart coupon with same code.
      When Mike uses this coupon generates a commission to John.

      • September 9, 2013 at 4:12 pm #

        I was referring to when they affiliates sign up. Like if John was an affiliate and he wanted to sign john up as an affiliate. not as a customer.

        • antonio September 9, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

          If you want:
          John (affiliate) –> Mike (affiliate tier 1)
          If John shares her link, for example: and Mike uses this link, when Mike is registered as affiliate, he is referred by John.

    I put the referral amount method and then selected WC_method::product_rates.

    I put the 10 under the product right?

  6. September 8, 2013 at 9:04 pm #

    Now does this also apply to everything? Because I just want it to be on 1 product. Not all..

  7. September 8, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

    ok, so if I set the Referral Amount option to 10 then under tiers 0.5 is $5 and 0.2 is $2 and 50 cents is 0.05 – I just want to make sure i’m understanding you.

  8. September 8, 2013 at 8:53 pm #

    I thought if you placed the 0.20 it meant 20%

    • kento September 8, 2013 at 8:58 pm #

      Yes that’s right. I was referring to your mention of “Commission Amount Per sale is 10” which you would use the “Referral amount” option for. So you would use 10 as a fixed amount and specify rates as 0.05 etc for the levels.

      • September 9, 2013 at 4:16 pm #

        OHHHHHHHHHH so I think I’m getting this. I set the amount on the product to 10 and the default amount on the product is always 10 per sale credited to that affiliate, then the tiers are divided up on percentages off of that $10 so tier 2 is $5 which is 50% of 10.. Is that right?

  9. September 8, 2013 at 8:21 pm #

    I thought 0.0X created percentage based stuff?

    • kento September 8, 2013 at 8:52 pm #

      Hm, I’m not quite sure what you’re asking …

  10. kento September 8, 2013 at 8:00 pm #

    Under Affiliates > Settings you would choose Referral Amount and indicate 10. Under Affiliates > Tiers you would set 0.05 as the rate for Level 1 and 0.02 as the rate for Level 2 and you must enable the option Level rates are relative. You would need to define the rates for the rest of levels accordingly and you have the option to define the number of levels the system uses on that page as well. Leave those levels at 0 where no commission should be paid.
