The process is simple. Create however many affiliates you wish within the system. Set each affiliate to a set of commission rules (or no commission at all). When a purchase is made within the account and an affiliate is selected they will be attached to the purchase.
You are able to run reports and see which affiliate resulted in which purchase on each transaction details page. The system will also automatically calculate the commission for the affiliate so that you can easily see who is performing and who is not. Paying affiliates now will take minutes instead of days of manual calculations.
