Charging a one time administration fee for affiliate program
Our company is putting our affiliate program to help us raise money. I would like to charge a one time fee of $39.95 for every affiliate that joins. This can also help us with the cost of mailing checks, 1099, administration, and maintenance.
I am sure that many people will agree on this but i really need this.
On the affiliate sign up form it should be as an option to charge affiliates a one time fee or a free affiliate program to join.
After talking to many people that want to join as an affiliate in our affiliate program, they all said that its not a problem, especially if our affiliate program pays good commissions and is for a good cause.
This would be awesome!!!

May i also add that people can charge what ever amount for the 1 time administration fee. It could just be a dollar or it can be $100 dollars. I think it would help a lot. As a business owner, its costs me $67 dollars just to pay for the checks i order at the bank. What about postage? and other cost to make sure we are running a successful affiliate program.
This can be very important to a lot of business owners that have affiliate programs with 1shoppingcart.

I've never done this, but it sounds like a simple process. Create a product call 'Affiliate Program' and make the Thank You page the affiliate sign-up page.
We have kept our Aff sign up page private at times.
