1. Do subscription payments (wp eStore) credit affiliates each and every billing cycle?
2. If so, is it possible to set them to only get a one time payment?
(both a very useful)February 16, 2010 at 7:00 am #18051
Yes the subscription payments configured through the wp eStore plugin credit affiliates each and every billing cycle.
Yes, you can tweak the eStore to make it so affiliates only get a one time payment?February 16, 2010 at 12:10 pm #18052

And does Website Payments Pro work with this? Reason being I read u can’t accept credit cards for a recurring subscription without it.February 17, 2010 at 1:06 am #18054
1. How do I set one-time commission for a recurring subscription?
2. If I set the subscription commission to 0%, does it still show how up in the affiliate stats, or is it treated like it never happened and never shows up?
(I’m offering 100% commission on a subscription, thats why I need it to credit affiliates only once.)
Keep up the great work Amin!!!February 18, 2010 at 12:14 am #18055
If you set it to 0 it shows as a $0 sale (a sale that didn’t generate any commission meaning you do not award commission for that particular product). You could make it so it doesn’t even show up for a $0 commission but it is best to be transparent with the affiliates. Let them know that there was a coneversion/sale that happened from their referral but it just didn’t generate any commision due to the fact that you do not give commission for that product.
Sometimes affiliates will send their friend to buy something and if they see nothing in the stats after the sale they will just drop your affiliate program without asking you anything because they think you are cheating.
“How do I set one-time commission for a recurring subscription?” – I will add this feature rather than giving you manual tweaks. should be able to add it in over the weekend.
By the way I have added the commission deletion option from the “Sales Menu”. I will send you and update.February 18, 2010 at 6:34 am #18056
I found a bug in your Delete option on the “Sales Menu”. When you delete a manual payment, it deletes ALL the manual payments! I’m guessing since they all have the same item ID/unique transaction ID.February 18, 2010 at 6:55 am #18057
It’s not a bug.. it’s a limitation. The commission is deleted based on the “Unique Transaction ID” (if you want to delete a record from a database you need to identify it first with some unique key).
Previously this commission deletion feature wasn’t there so the manual checkout didn’t enforce “Unique Transaction ID” option. If you use the updated version of eStore it will automatically create a “Unique ID” for every sale.
So going forward you will be able to use the delete commission option for new sales but not for existing ones.
I will send you an updated version of the eStore so you get this option (Also I added the option to specify a special offer in the “Discount/Coupons” menu that gets displayed on the “Thank You” page with the transaction result.June 6, 2011 at 7:27 pm #18058twokadMember
We’re using WPA Version v3.2 and can not find the option to only pay a one-time commission for a recurring subscription. Where is this?
We just found out that our affiliates are being assigned a commission every month for each recurring subscription they’ve referred to our site. We don’t want this. We want to only pay a one-time commission.
Our WPA is integrated with WP eStore and WishList.
At the moment we have the Commission Level (% or $) in WPA as: 50% and in WP eStore we have for Product Specific Commission (% or $): 50%.
Please advise. Thank you!June 7, 2011 at 12:47 am #18059wpCommerceModerator
Please go to
WP eStore->Settings->Addon Settings->WP Affiliate Platform Specific Settingssection and check the
One Time Commission for Subscription Paymentoption.
