Pay affiliate commissions based on clicks or visits to affiliate links. This plugin adds the possibility to grant commissions based on Pay per Click, Pay per Visit and Pay per Daily Visit with Affiliates Pro.
This extension allows to grant affiliates commissions based on the click or visits to their affiliate links. It integrates with Affiliates Pro and allows to set up an advertising program where the participants earn commissions based on the traffic they generate to your site.
Commissions can be paid to affiliates based on clicks or visits to their affiliate links. For example, the system can be set up to pay affiliates $0.70 for every 100 Daily Visits.
Referrals are recorded based on the number of clicks, visits or daily visits to an affiliate’s link.
Access to this extension is included with Affiliates Pro.
Clicks, Visits and Daily Visits
The different types that are available are:
- Click : A request for an affiliate link which has been recognized as such by the system. Multiple requests count as a click each.
- Visit : A request for an affiliate link by an individual IP. Multiple requests from the same IP count as one single visit.
- Daily Visit : A request for an affiliate link by an individual IP during one day. Multiple requests from the same IP during the same day count as one single daily visit. Multiple requests on different days count as a daily visit per each day.
To clarify, clicks are produced more frequently than visits, because the visits are based on clicks grouped by IP. For example, if you get 9 clicks on an affiliate link from the same IP, it will count as a single visit.
Daily visits are simply visits during the same day. For example, if you get 5 clicks on an affiliate link from the same IP during one day, it will count as one single daily visit. If you get another 3 clicks on the following day, it will count as a new single daily visit. In this example, we would have had 5+3 = 8 clicks, 1+1 = 2 daily visits and 1 visit.
