Level 2 Affiliate Commissions

When you create an affiliate program, it’s possible to automate level 2 affiliate commissions. In this scenario:

Bob is a current affiliate for your program. He recruits two friends to sign up for the affiliate program through his link. Now, Bob receives a commission percentage for every sale that his two friends make through their own affiliate program links.

This is an optional feature that is a helpful tool if you’re actively building out an affiliate program and want to incentivize affiliates to recruit new people to promote and sell your products/courses.

However, please be aware that this is an advanced feature. The testing and troubleshooting required to make sure your setup is properly configured requires a full understanding of how the affiliate system works inside AccessAlly.

How to Set Up A Level 2 Affiliate

1. Enable Level 2 Affiliate

Open up the affiliate tier you would like to add a level 2 affiliate to. Under the Level-2 commission tab, check the Enable box.

2. Configure Commission Details

When the Enable box is checked, you will be able to configure the rest of the settings:

  • Level-2 commission duration – This setting only affects recurring payments. Level-2 Affiliates will receive commission for payments made within the specified duration (in days). Enter -1 to pay out level-2 commission indefinitely.
  • Level-2 product-specific overwrite – You can assign specific commission schedule for each individual product.
