Commission calculation method

There are currently two commission calculation methods in the affiliate system, and you can choose one of them according to your plan.

(1)Based on discounted price (recommended)

  • When you set the calculation based on the discounted price of the product, after the referral order is generated, the system will calculate it based on the actual payment amount of each product in the order. The actual payment amount of the product is the amount after the product in the order enjoys the discount, and does not include the additional cost of the order such as shipping fee, tax, tip, etc.
  • When you set this calculation method, any changes (editing orders, refunds, etc.) to the order in the commission locking period will cause the system to recalculate the commission and ask you to review the order again. If the order has exceeded the commission locking period, the system will not recalculate the commission.

(2)Based on retail price

  • When you set the calculation based on the retail price of the product, after the referral order is generated, the system will calculate the commission based on the selling price of each product in the order. The selling price of the product is the selling price when the product in the order does not enjoy any discount, and does not include additional charges for the order such as shipping, taxes, tips, etc.
  • When you set this calculation method, when the referral order is generated, the commission will be calculated according to the corresponding selling price of the items contained in the order, and the calculated commission will not change in the future, and it is the commission that the final affiliate can get. Regardless of whether your referral order is in the commission locking period or not, the system will not recalculate the commission when there is any change in the order (editing order, refund, etc.).
  • When you set the calculation of commission is based on the retail price of the product, you can disable the commission locking period at the same time.

 

Steps:

1. In the affiliate marketing system, go to settings and select the commission calculation method

2. In the Commission calculation method setting section, select the commission calculation method you want to use

Commission locking period

The explanation of commission locking period:

  • The commission locking period is established to prevent refunds and other actions from affecting your financial security
    • When you set the commission calculation method to "calculate based on the discounted price", editing or refunding the order within the commission locking period will affect the commission of the order, and the system will recalculate the commission and ask you to re-approve the referral order
    • When an order exceeds the commission locking period, any changes will not affect the commission of the order, and the system will not recalculate
    • When you set the commission calculation method to "Calculate based on retail price", the final commission will be calculated after the order is generated, regardless of whether the referral order is in the commission locking period, it will not change in the future
  • When your order exceeds the commission locking period and is approved, it will be included in the bill, so please carefully review the referral order
  • Orders that have not exceeded the commission locking period or orders that have not been approved will not be included in the billing statistics
  • You can set the time of the commission locking period, the default is 30 days, you can customize it, up to 30 days
  • When you set the commission calculation method to "Calculation based on retail price", you can disable the commission locking period. After disabled, the referral order has no commission locking period, and it can be included in the bill only after being approved (only supported to be closed when the calculation method selected is "Calculation based on retail price")

1. In the affiliate marketing system, go to settings and select the commission calculation method
