My company purchased eStore,eMembers, and Affliate programs wanting them to work together to use on a client’s site.
The client wants to be able to have an affliate program where the premium member gets an “affiliate code” that they can distribute to others. If anyone enters this code when ordering a BTI product (including their own “Insider” membership, the person whose code it is earns 10% of the purchase price of anything bought with that code (i.e. they will get $1 per month “commission” on a regular monthly Insider subscription from somebody they recruit).
Anybody who orders product using a Premium Member Affiliate code gets 10% off on their purchase price (this is to provide people incentive to use somebody’s code if they have it). Now, the problem gets to be when a person who signed up “under” somebody else’s code decides to become a Premium member themselves (thereby getting their own 20% discount, which added to the 10% of their “sponsor” would add up to 30%, which is higher than I would like). If we can go a second level deep, I would say we fix this by making the second tier pay at 5%. Also, when a person goes to “Premium” status, their “sponsor’s” percentage drops from 10% to 5%. The sponsor can make up the 5% on any purchases made by person C in the example below.
I have no idea how to integrate eMember, Affliate, and eStore to do this. Please advise. I have no idea on where to start with the Affliate program. Can the member of the site log in to the affliate program with their existing member login or do they hae to register separately? I am confused on what I need to do to integrate all this seamlessly.
