Split commissions simulator Split commission mode

Introduction

During a sales process, multiple scenarios are possible, including involving multiple affiliates.

It is precisely for this reason that Affilae created the "split" commission sharing mode, to ensure that all affiliates who contribute to a sales process are justly rewarded.

Split commissions shared between affiliates are based on the weight assigned to each, affiliates who are given a greater weight will receive a larger percentage of the commission than those with a lesser weight.

The goal is to incentivize by giving greater value to the sites that have quality content and that contribute more importantly to the sales process, and less value to the coupon/voucher type sites that usually come into the conversion process only during the final payment phase, and generally do not affect or sway the customer's decision to actually make the purchase.

It is also possible that the advertiser has already done the bulk of the work through his own SEM/SEO (free or paid) and directly attracted the customer at the very beginning of the sales process.

This means the advertiser himself is now a part of the commission sharing, and his share is removed from the total amount to be split between his affiliates (the first visit must be generated as a result of the advertiser).

The split commission sharing simulator below will allow you to test out various configurations in order to better understand the functional principles and to refine the split commission sharing parameters and rules for your own affiliate program(s).
