Rates

From this page you can create some rules that will override the general affiliate rate (that you set up in the Commissions & Payments options tab), and so create very specific rates based on the selected product, role or user.

Thanks to the rules, you will be able to create custom percentage rates based on specific conditions:

  • User: you can set custom rates for one or more affiliate users
  • Product: you can set custom rates for one or more products, variations included
  • Product category: you can set custom rates for one or more product categories
  • User role: you can set custom rates for one or more user roles
  • User/product: you can set custom rules for a combination of product and affiliate user, so for example, apply a 50% rate only for affiliate “Susanne” when somebody buys “Luxury watch” product through her affiliate link. Also product variations are supported.

Priority

As you can see, the rules are of different types and based on this, the priority of the rules will be set. The rule priority order is the following (sorted from highest to lowest priority):

  1. User/product variation
  2. User/product
  3. Product variation
  4. Product
  5. Product category
  6. User
  7. User role

Example: a product rule will always have priority over a category rule, but a product rule set on a variation will have priority over a rule on the parent product.

Please, note:
excluded products and affiliates (from the General options tab): these will never be considered in the priority rule calculation and will win over any other rule.
Also note that you can override the affiliate’s rate from the affiliate’s profile, but this will not create a visible rule on this page. Make sure you keep that in mind when setting your affiliate’s rates both from the affiliate profile and from this page. All other product rules will win also on affiliate rates set in the affiliate’s profile.

Manual order among rules of the same type.

You can also set a custom priority value in the rule settings or leave it empty and automatically sort it by dragging and dropping from the rules list, which will update this number.
Yet, please, be aware that with this value you can only define the priority among the rules of the same type.

Example. You have the following rules:

  • priority 1 – 15% on Luxury watch (product rule)
  • priority 2 – 30% on Luxury watch for affiliate Susanne (user/product rule)

If someone purchases the Luxury watch through affiliate Susanne’s referral link, Susanne will get a 30% commission, regardless of any priority value that you set, because it’s two different rule types and user/product rules have always higher priority than product rules. Other affiliates will get a 15% instead.

Yet, if you have:

  • priority 1 – 15% on Luxury watch (product rule)
  • priority 2 – 30% on Luxury watch and Silver earrings (product rule)

In this case, it’s two rules of the same type, so if the Luxury watch is purchased, a 15% will apply because it has a higher priority value set (1).
