This is huge!!!!!
The advantage of the multiple affiliate programs is you can make different media libraries for each product.
No matter what affiliate see all programs you have made.
THE HUGE DISADVANTAGE is that only products assigned to that specific sub affiliate program will give the affiliate commission. So if you have 10 products and 10 programs and the affiliate puts one banner on their site for one program that has 1 product assigned to it but someone buys a different product from you site than is assigned to that affiliate program then the affiliate does not get credit. And that in turn blows up your affiliate program.
This confuses the affiliate immensely. This servers no purpose that I can tell. Why not let affiliates get credit for any product purhcased through you that you have set a commission payout for????
Either delete the add affilaite program link (this would be waste of a great feature that helps you differentiate products and mediate specified to those products)
simply make it where no matter what affiliate program link they provide they will get credit for any product bought that you have assigned a affiliate payout commission to (regardless of what program the product is assigned to)
I called customer service today - they had no idea of any benefit of the adding an affiliate program and their only suggestion was don't do it. Obviously someone missed connecting the dots. Please help and simply make it where the commissions can be paid for by any product with a commission payout regardless of what program it is assigned to so long as any link under the affiliate links site is clicked on by the customer.
Please call me if you have further questions...
Or make it where if they are an affiliate they get credit for commissions on all programs that you offer.
Basically there is a really easy solution here.
Simply make it where the affiliate links clicked on any link in the default or any of the other referral programs
Limit the feature to 5 emails like used in 1shopping cart.
Another great way to do it would be to integrate what many other programs now do where y ou can enter in y our gmail/facebook/linked in logins and it will marge the emails/contacts into it for you. That way you know they are only sending to people they have personally emailed/associated with already.
At least add a refer a friend page in the affiliate program back office - the same as what is used by 1shoppingcart itself. This way it would have the affiliate program link built into it and would be easy to use.
