An affiliate is your partner who spreads information about your store and gets a reward for it — in reward points or money.
There are three levels of affiliation.
Level 1: Affiliate Lite
Your customer shares a link to your store with their friends, family, co-workers, etc. When someone follows that link, the Affiliate gets reward points which they can spend in your store.
Level 2: Affiliate Pro
The customer may want to have more than bonuses. Why not to let them make real money? The idea is the same — the affiliate shares a link or places a banner which leads to your store and gets a commission. You can create various affiliate plans with rewards for showing a banner, customer clicks, sales, etc. All the commissions will be available in the Admin Panel of your CS-Cart store.
Level 3: Multi-tier
Your affiliates may bring you more and more new affiliates. For example, your first affiliate can bring you five more and each of them will invite some more affiliates. Thus you affiliation pyramid will get more participants interested in the promotion of your merchandise. But there is nothing to worry about, you can always confirm or decline a new one. All the affiliate tiers are shown on the Affiliate tiers tree page and you can always see how many affiliates bring your partners.
How it works
Say, you have a customer Lucy who has bought a dress in your store. Her friend Ann, a famous fashion blogger, tells her: “The dress looks gorgeous. Where have you bought it?”. Lucy copies the referral link to your store from her account and sends it to Lucy. When Lucy follows the link and buys something, Ann gets her reward.
Lucy likes your products too and joins your affiliate program. She places a banner of your product on her blog. When her followers click on that link and visit your store, the blogger Lucy gets the commission for the clicks. Ann gets her commission too, because she invited Lucy in the program.
