With ShareASale, Merchants are able to set up a fully customized program, including the commissions for each Affiliate partner. In order to understand the Commission Hierarchy and how different commission rules interact with each other, Merchants can see it all within the Commission Portal.
This page in a Merchant’s interface not only shows all of the different commissioning options available, but it also shows specifically which Affiliates fall within each option. There are three categories of commissioning options – Standard, Intermediate, and Advanced – each revealing more options.
By simply clicking any setting, a Merchant is able to see which Affiliates fall in that category. By selecting “View Existing Commission Hierarchy” and sorting by Affiliate, a Merchant is also able to determine the commission hierarchy for that specific partner.
Pro Tip: When viewing the commission hierarchy, the rules at the bottom will trump everything above it!
These are the most common commissioning options available. All of these settings can be changed or updated in seconds!
Adding additional layers of commissioning requires some consideration. They will interact with your existing settings and require a few extra steps for setup!
Adding advanced layers of commissioning requires strategic planning and careful consideration. They will interact with your existing settings and require special setup or possibly assistance from the ShareASale tech team. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about your commission settings.
