Included in the latest release is the option for ecommerce account holders to setup an affiliate program. Using this feature the merchant can setup a commission rate to be earned by the affiliates and banners for the affiliates to display on their websites. Orders created by visitors who reach the site via these banners will be tracked and an affiliate payment will be computed. The merchant can keep track of their affiliate payments via their website admin.

How it works:

The merchant creates an affiliate program with a percentage based commission via the affiliates area in the Store section. They setup an affiliate commission rate and write up how the affiliate program works in the program description area. Then they add banners that the affiliates will have to choose from to display on their website.

Affiliates are created via the User accounts system. This can be done via the normal user account to a group methods: manually enter the affiliate user, create a form that sets up the submission as a user in the group, the standard create account option

Once the affiliate user is created, the affiliate logs in via the My account area and clicks the affiliate tab. They can see details of the affiliate program and grab HTML to display the merchant's banner on the affiliate website. Sales completed by customers who reach the site by clicking the banner will be tracked and commissions will be applied to the affiliate.

The merchant can view the amount owed to the affiliate and register a payment by finding the user in the user accounts area (affiliate group) and clicking the affiliate tab. The merchant would still need to actually send the payment to the affiliate.

In our latest release, orders will now be automatically archived. Order states of Completed, Shipped, and Cancelled will automatically be moved to the history area after 3 months. All other order states will automatically be moved to history after 6 months. Merchants can still access these orders by clicking the history link in their order manager area or by entering the order id in the search field. Ecommerce reports will still reflect information for all completed and shipped orders even if the order has been archived. This adjustment increases the performance of the order management area. Merchants with a large number of orders that they did not archive themselves, will see a significant increase in the loading time of their order manager.
