I probably need more coffee and some sleep, but this isn’t quite making sense to me in terms of setting it up the way I want (I have groups, affiliate products process tiers, and affiliates rankings installed).
Basic product sells for $100 to buyer (Lisa)
Original Affiliate is Bob. I’m calling him Level 0
He signed up his friend Jim as an affiliate, so he is Level 1
Jim talked Alexis into the affiliate program, and she is Level 2
Lisa is Alexis’ friend and made the purchase.
In this case, Lisa paid cash.
Alexis gets 10% ($10)
Jim gets 5% ($5)
and the original Bob, gets 1% ($1)
I have it set up where affiliates get 10% of their referred sale (level 1), and then down the line, 5% of the friend’s friend (level 2), and 1% at the next level (level 3).
What I’m not sure about is whether or not I should check “relative” next to level. Does that mean that Jim would get 5% ($0.50) of Alexis’ $10 (10%) commission, and Bob gets 1% ($0.10) of the $10?
Basically, I want the affiliate closest to the purchase to get the bigger commission, with commissions rolling up the ladder and diminishing.
Thanks for the help!
