    • Please update the affiliate tracking system to allow subids and real time tracking.

      The ability to ad sub-ids to the end of an affiliate link is a necessity in today's marketing. Having to create multiple ad trackers is confusing and falls on the administrator since affiliates cannot do it themselves.

      This is such an easy way for affiliates to quickly broaden their marketing and for us to see exactly where sales are coming from. The stats have GOT to be real time though; that is crucial.

      Also, there needs to be a separate column that allows us to see in one glance (again, real time) whether a sale was a regular sale, upsell…

      • Be able to create multiple custom affiliate links

        Right now, you have to ad the &u= extension to create more than one destination custom affiliate url. This ends up creating impossibly long web links.

        Make it easier to create different links for different landing pages, so that if my affiliates engage in more than one promotion, we don't have to manually creates a link for each one!

        • Create secondary affiliate program so we can assign a product to one affiliate program & not another

          I want to be able to create a 2nd affiliate program for a product (membership site) that I open up to only certain people and don't want existing affiliates currently promoting other products to promote the membership site (at least not yet) . Right now, 1SC won't let us create a second affiliate program . INstead, if we make a product eligible for affiliate status, all affiliates can promote it. We can't control which affiliates have access to which products

          • API for Affiliate area.

            Allow us to be able to grab the information from our own affilate areas so we can put it in our own membership sites. AS currently if a person has a membership site then their members need to have two username and passwords. One for the membership site and one for the affiliate site. Also it would allow for us to use the links, banners, emails etc more effectively for our own affiliates.

            • Separate branding for affiliate programs

              Allow separate branding and destination URLs for your so-called unlimited affiliate programs. Without separate branding, affiliation is confusing. It's non-filial. How many Internet marketers do you know with only one product or one niche? As soon as we branch out into another niche, our newest, hottest affiliates are directed to the old niche's login, graphics, etc. You may as well say it's only one affiliate program per account, because that's how it works. This is the main reason I'm shopping for a new shopping cart solution.

              • Improved Affiliate Links and Tools

                The main affiliate link works like a charm. It would be nice if we could have code that contains the image, text and link in one url to paste anywhere. For instance the main Affiliate link works great on Facebook,. but we can't create others like it. Facebook is the biggest social media out there. We should have more options for Affiliate links and they should be really easy to create and use, as most people are not HTML experts. Those of us who are still have a hard time. BUMMER!!

                • Affiliate Program-Make More Useful

                  Hi, many people don't use your affiliate modules when you really do affiliate stuff yet the integration is one of your strengths.

                  1) When using media links, they show "unassigned" for the default program. Yet, they really may be assigned to another program. If you asssign them, they unassign without any warning from the other program (should not do this, means we have to manage them all manually.)

                  2) Superaffiliate (tier 1/2) is very clunky,not well designed.

                  3) There is another really big issue... You cannot assign one product to multiple affiliate programs at once. For example, if I want…

                  • Hard-code people into system so affiliates don't lose credit when a person clears their cookies

                    One of biggest complaints I hear from affiliates about 1SC is that people are not hard-coded into the system so if cookies are cleared they lose credit. You guys already mark who referred a lead so you might as well connect that to a sale rather than making it all cookie based.

                        • W-9/1099 reporting

                          Allow us to search through our affiliates and great an email search group for affiliates who have earned over $600 in a year.

                          This would allow us to produce a single email broadcast to remind them to submit their w-9 for 1099 tax reconciliation.

                          This is a MAJOR problem for people with lots of even moderately productive affiliates.

                          This could also be used to target special performance based affiliate promo campaigns and so forth.

                          Of course you will ALSO have to allow us to send an attachment in a broadcast.

                            I have an inner circle and I want to offer them a % of the products they co-create with me, but do not want to offer this to anyone else. I need the ability to create a unique and private affiliate program for them that is not accessible to the others in my program who are not involved at a higher level. Thank you.

                            • affiliate sub ids

                              The perfect id structure is two sub ids. So for example an affiliate runs ads on different ad networks all with different placements.

                              the sub ids on the aff links would say:

                              afflink.com&id=adnetwork1&id2=placement1

                              I've been doing affiliate marketing for 5 years and having 2 sub ids makes things much easier.

                              • Affiliates should be able to search the media links for the product they want.

                                Our affiliates should be able to search the media links for the products they want, instead of laboriously having to scroll through each page.

                                • Please remove the automatic 2nd tier affiliate notification

                                  ...or at least make it optional. When the 1st tier affiliate automatically gets notified that he's going to make commissions off of an affiliate who signed up under him and it's not true (because you don't have a 2nd tier commission), that creates a huge problem. This makes us look so unprofessional and reflects poorly upon 1shoppingcart too.

                                  This should be a quick and easy fix.

                                  • One long list of affiliate media links

                                    There should be an option to view the affiliate media links in list form - one long list that, in the details, shows what type of link it is - text, ad, banner, etc. Both for me the site owner to manage my affiliate media links AND for the affiliates to see which ones they want - they should also be able to see which ones they are using - by a check box being filled.

                                    I should also be able to see how many are using which link.

                                    • Audio and Video in affiliate resources

                                      Although you currently have a place to post audio ads in the affiliate resource section - this only works if you have a subscription to Audiogenerator. Also with so many people creating video on sites like YouTube, Vimeo, etc it would be great if there was a way to add multimedia ads to the Affiliate Resource center and have them automatically insert the affiliate link much like you can with the HTML ads. It would auto include an audio/video player.

                                        • Track and pay Commissions from coupons

                                          Track sales and calculate commissions through coupon use. An affiliate just needs a coupon, not a link - enables print media affiliate sale
