How to Use the Commission Rule Add-on

With the Commission Rule Add-on you can set custom Rules for your commissions. Want to pay a higher or lower percent commission for some products vs other products? Want to pay a lower percentage if a certain coupon was used?

With commission Rules, you can now do that, and more!

First you'll need to install and activate the add-on from the Easy Affiliate > Add-ons page.

Once installed and activated, you'll see a new menu item in Easy Affiliate > Commission Rules.

Click that new menu item to begin managing and setting up your Commission Rules.

Priority: This will determine the order in which this commission rule will be applied when determining commission. The lower the number the higher the priority. This defaults to a priority of 1.

Rules/Matches: This is where you'll define your set of Matches for this Rule.

Type: All or Any. If All, then ALL conditions must match or the Rule won't be applied. If Any, then if ANY one of the conditions are met, the Rule will be applied.

Commission Type: Percentage or Fixed Amount. If Percentage, then the affiliate is paid a percent of the sale. If Fixed Amount, then the affiliate is paid a fixed amount for the sale regardless of the amount of the sale.

NOTE: If you have the Commission Levels add-on installed, you will also have the option to add additional commission levels.

This part explains different options you'll encounter once you start creating a new rule

The first drop-down menu is “Type”.

It can be Transaction or Affiliate. Transaction applies to all transactions, while Affiliate applies to all affiliates.

If you select Transaction as the type, you'll get the next-drop-down menu that contains the following options:

Source: The eCommerce integration through which the purchase was made.

Coupon: The coupon code used in the transaction (if any).

Item Id: The ID of the product that was purchased. For example, the WooCommerce Product ID, the MemberPress Membership ID or EDD Download ID.

Item Name: The name of the product that was purchased. For example, the WooCommerce Product name, the MemberPress Membership name or EDD Download name.

Amount: The net sale amount of the transaction (excluding taxes and shipping).

Payment #: The payment number for recurring subscription payments, the first payment will be 1, second payment 2 and so on.

If you select Affiliate as the type, you'll get the next-drop-down menu that contains the following options:

Username: The username of the affiliate who referred the sale..

Referrals: The number of user accounts that signed up using the affiliate’s affiliate link.

Sales: The total number of sales referred by the affiliate.

Sales Amount: The total amount of all sales referred by the affiliate

The next drop-down menu can contain logical comparison selection (Is, Is Not, Contains, Does Not Contain, Matches, In), or mathematical comparison symbols (=, !=, >, <, >=, <=, In), depending on whether the previous selection was textual or numerical in nature.

Finally, the last field is where you need to manually enter the data that previous selections will be based upon.

Here's an example of how you can mix and match different rules:

This rule will give 10% commission to any affiliate who referred sales in amount equal to or more than 1000.00 (USD for example) under the condition that the sale came through MemberPress. Since the type says “All” both conditions would need to be met.

If you'd set that to “Any” then the 10% commission would be given to all sales that came through MemberPress or if an affiliate referred sales in amount of 1000.00 or more from any source.
