Multi Level Affiliate Network is a great feature to have for merchants in their affiliate programs. This allows affiliates to expand their affiliate programs quickly without putting in a lot of effort, in a multi-level affiliate network, affiliates get the ability to recruit affiliates under them and earn commission on the sales that are done by those affiliates. GoAffPro provides merchants with the ability to set up their multi-level affiliate network and customize it accordingly.
Here we take a look at some of the multi-level marketing features that the GoAffPro app offers:
Set the number of levels for the affiliate network
Merchants have the option of setting the number of affiliate levels they want in their multi-level network. This enables them to have a network ranging from a single level of affiliate hierarchy to 20 levels. This also offers merchants the ease of up-sizing or scaling down their networks at any time.
By providing merchants with the option of selecting the number of levels they want in their multi-level network, they can easily expand their network of affiliates.
Choose the commission rate for each affiliate level
Merchants can set the commission rate for each level of an affiliate, which means that if the commission rate of a level 2 affiliate is set to 10% then the level 1 affiliate (who recruited the level 2 affiliate) will earn a 10% commission on the sale made by the level 2 affiliates.
This option allows merchants to create a perfect affiliate hierarchy for their network with the commission rate increases gradually as you move up the affiliate hierarchy.
Choice of the commission calculation method
It is also possible to choose the method of commission calculation for a multi-level network. Merchants may choose between Simple or Dynamic commission calculation method.
In the Simple commission calculation method, the commission of the affiliate is calculated as the percentage of the order value, for example:
Partner A (Parent Affiliate) will earn a $10 commission on the order value of $100. This means that the parent affiliate will earn a 10% commission on the order value. Partner B (Sub-Affiliate) will earn the default commission that has been set for affiliates on the sale.
In the case of the Dynamic commission calculation method the commission is calculated as the percentage of the sale commission, for example:
Partner A (Parent Affiliate) will earn a $1 commission on the commission for sale of $10. This means that the parent affiliate will earn a 10% on the sales commission earned by the sub-affiliate. Partner B (Sub-Affiliate) will earn the default commission that has been set for affiliates on the sale, which in this case is given by “commission for sale” that is $10.
Use Playground to test and learn about the multi-level network
GoAffPro offers a great way for merchants to learn more about their affiliate network and test it using the Playground feature. In the playground, the merchant can set the number of levels that he wants in his affiliate network, choose the affiliate whose referral was used in the sale, choose the commission calculation method, set the order value and the commission earned by the affiliate (who referred the sale).
While the merchant is customizing and setting up the parameters of the network, an affiliate chart on the right shows changes in real-time. This allows merchants to make tweaks and changes to their network while at the same time seeing how the network works. The playground is a great way for merchants to view how the multi-level network works.
Multi-Level network availability for affiliates
Merchants also have the option of enabling or disabling multi-level network availability for network affiliates, which means that the merchant can choose which affiliates to recruit sub-affiliates. This allows the merchant to have greater control of the network.
Multi-level network features, such as the ability to recruit affiliates and other multi-level network features, can be switched on or off manually for an affiliate as the merchant chooses.
