    How deep does the referrals go?

    Can this go 2 or 3 levels deep?

    Its mentioned here: https://www.itthinx.com/topic/tier-referrals

    Does that mean the first affiliate who earned from a referral will still get referral earnings when the referral also gets its own referral earnings?

    Just want to clarify, i’m not familiar with this things.

    Hi,

    Tiers are supported in the premium version Affiliates Enterprise – you can see details on the features in the Tiers section of the documentation.

    Does that mean the first affiliate who earned from a referral will still get referral earnings when the referral also gets its own referral earnings?

    Here’s an example:

    Let’s assume you grant 10% commission for direct referrals and 5% commission to the first tier.

    Affiliate A signs up with you and promotes your site. Someone, let’s call him B, clicks A’s link and also signs up to your affiliate program, Affiliate B has now been referred by Affiliate A.

    Now B starts to promote your site, too. Mrs. X clicks on B’s affiliate link and makes a purchase for $200 net on your site. B gets a 10% commission on that, i.e. B has earned $20. As A referred B, A gets a 5% commission being in the first tier – A earns $10 off the referral granted to B.

    Again, this requires Affiliates Enterprise – it’s not a feature in the free version.

    Cheers

    PS : In the above example, you would pay a total of $20 + $10 = $30 in commissions.

    Based on that example, it should be 3 levels correct?

    The example above would be only one level – affiliate A is in the first level.

    An example with three levels would be:

    – Affiliate A refers affiliate B
    – B refers C
    – C refers D

    A > B > C > D

    If you have three levels, and D refers a customer, then D will get the direct referral and C, B and A would get their commissions too because they are in D’s upline.

    This is possible in the free version?

    Or just in Pro and Enterprise?

    Only in Affiliates Enterprise – see my previous comment above please https://wordpress.org/support/topic/referral-level/#post-9558059

    Ok, noted. Will relay this to my employer as we are looking into this plugin to incorporate to our site. Thank you
