Home Forums General Support How to setup an "agent" system? Two tiers but varying % on each affiliate

    I have staffed affiliate managers that I would like to pay them commissions that vary per specific affiliate they manage.

    What’s the best way of setting that up?

    A Manager could in theory have 100 affiliates they manage and would be paid a different % commission per affiliate.

    Hi Peter,

    In my response to this question via Private Message, you didn’t mention that you wanted to be able to adjust the Indirect Commission Rate for the Affiliate Manager, based on the particular Affiliate that Directly Referred the sale.

    The Ranks add-on that I recommended will not give you this ability. Actually, there is no way to do this with any of the existing AffiliateWP add-ons. However, we do offer custom development services, and I could certainly build this feature for you.

    I would have to create a Per-Affiliate setting (Affiliates > Affiliates > Edit) that would allow you to set the Indirect Rate for the Parent (Not the Current Affiliate). Then, I would have to create a function to override the default Indirect Rates set in the MLM tab (Affiliates > Settings > MLM), to apply this new rate for each affiliate.

    Is this a feature that you need right away? My development schedule fills up very quickly, so if this is the direction you want to take, please let me know as soon as possible, and I’ll provide you with a quote for the project, and we can take the steps to finalize your desired time slot.
