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

Most of our affiliates are doctors who are mostly non-technical, and some don't even have a decent website, so the existing affiliate program wouldn't work. The "offline" alternative is that affiliates have a certain coupon code (e.g. free shipping, etc.) associated with them. The affiliate hands the patient a brochure listing their coupon code. When the customer purchases using the coupon, the affiliate gets credit for the sale.

This would be a useful addition. I still want to be able to track commissions without a coupon, but adding this would make the system more flexible. We do a lot of live seminars and events so a coupon option for those would be marvelous.
I'd love to give people brochures with coupons for our website, and pay them as affiliates based on who used the coupon on the brochure.
