I just want to say that so far so good that this plug in has worked nicely for my Affiliate Company.
I believe I need some custom programming to make this a TOTALLY awesome system.
I will give you a little back ground and then the items that I need.
Currently I run an affiliate program selling a weight loss product. Someone can sign up for free and make 20% commission. Their Role is called affiliate and they are added to a group (using the groups plugin) called affiliate which gives them the 20% commission. I have to manually add them to the group when they sign up as an affiliate.
If the affiliate chooses to purchase the product themselves they become a super affiliate (their role is changed by me manually) – for record keeping purposes the role in the system doesn’t do anything other than for my own personal records. Then I also manually add them to the group called super affiliate which gives them 40% commission.
1. I need some programming done that if someone with the role of affiliate or in the group of affiliate purchases product it will change their role and change their group.. Currently this is manual and a very time consuming task.
2. When they become a super affiliate they get 3 more levels of tiers they can earn. This is also a manual process and very time consuming.
3. I do offer a subscription (which you recently fixed a problem with the commissions for me) but I currently offer bonuses to the super affiliates who buy the product every month. One of the bonuses I offer is a $50 bonus for every 5 personal referrals they get. Problem is that your system gives them the total referrals (including any tier referrals) that they earn and I always have to make them go back and manually give them the list. Could we get a report feature added or something that can give us the personal referrals (I also think the affiliates need to see this too.)
4. I really need some type of contact manager programmed. I did upload the plugin Affiliates WooCommerce Views but it doesn’t have enough information in it. It shows the order number and the total of the order along with the referral commission an affiliate earned but the affiliates in my company NEED the actual customers contact information. My system is designed heavily around follow up. So the affiliates need to be able to follow up with their customers. Currently I am doing this manually and with my company growing so much this is taking way too much of my time. I did have someone program me a Cron Job – which looked into 3 or 4 tables to get the information for an affiliate and then sent them an email with their customers information but this was very cumbersome on my server.
If someone can either email me (you should have my email on file) or approve this entry I would greatly appreciate it.
