This system comprises a set of the most powerful and useful Affiliate and Referrals tools. It is intended to assist site vendors to attract unlimited number of real paying members. You can use system both standard linear referral and advanced affiliate matrix system. In matrix mode it is possible to create for members any number of own matrices with defined number of users levels in it. Registered members can invite new users using personal referral links, banners code, direct email messages, social sharing. Affiliate System is integrated with UNA payment system, thus allows to pay earned commission to members through the site. If you have our Point System it is possible to use points and money as commission and it is also possible to use only points without real money payouts.
Main administration abilities:
- Create Affiliate programs depends on existed membership levels. Affiliate Program allows to enable/disable matrix and linier referral algorithm.
There are four activity types for sponsors to earn commission from referred members:
- New profile join
- Referred profile's membership upgrade
- Purchases in Market module
- Any other purchases through the site cart
Commissions values can have both static values and percentage of the spent price on the site (membership price, good's price in store and etc... ). In matrix mode, it is possible to set commission for each matrix level independently.
2. Manage profiles information. Admin has comprehensive interface to control earned commissions, invited members, affiliate statistic and etc.
3. Create Banners for members to embed. Each member can get own unique banners' js code to insert to any page of any site. This special code allows to track three banners' activity and for each of them admin can set commission.
- joined member
- banner's impression
- banner's click
It is possible to set commission in defult currency or in points (if you have Point System).
4. Manage commissions requests. Admin has area to process members' commissions payout requests. It is possible to pay to the members through the site in case if member defined payment settings in account details or to process commission manually.
We have added description for each field in studio and hope it will help to understand how to use each option.
Main users abilities:
Members have four Affiliate System pages with functions:
- Dashboard page contains the most important info for members. Information about current active program, earned commission, direct referral link and ability to send email invitations or share referral link in Twitter or Facebook and etc...
- Referrals page contains info about all invited profiles and search function. In matrix mode it is possible to view matrix tree.
- Statistic page allows to view the all details about referred members' activity and their earned commission with search function.
- Banners' page allows to view details about used banners, earned commission and to get personal banners' code.
We have tried to make users interface simple, functional and clear for members.
Difference between linear referral and matrix algorithms.
How linear referral algorithm works:
For example: You as admin can set as commission $1 for each referred member . If any registered member invites 10 new members, then earned commission for join is 10 x $1 = $10. In case if you have Points System, you can set points instead of money or to use both. So, now sponsor profile can get commission for each paid action (membership upgrades, purchases on the site) performed by any of these 10 invited members, depends on admin settings.
Forced Matrix Income:
For example: You (as admin) can create matrix 3x8 members. When member A refers 3 new members, then Level 1 in matrix 3x8 will be complete. When one of these 3 members refers another 3 members, Level 2 with 9 members of matrix will be also complete and so on till Level 8. Of course, members from each level can continue to refer members and they will be added to appropriate level. Any future referred member will be automatically placed under of existed referred members, forcing the matrix to fill up to 8 levels deep. Up-line Members from matrix can get the commission for every paid action or new member in matrix from down-line members. Member from Level 1 gets commission for members from Level 2 – Level 8, members from Level 2 for members from Level 3 – Level 8 and so on.There is flexible system of settings for admin which allows to set price or percentage for referrals activity on each level. There is the example for matrix 3x8 below:
So, each member can get $9,840.00 by filling own matrix and how fast the members get $9,840.00 depends on how well they advertise their referral link or affiliate banner. It is possible for members to start to fill new matrix when they fill default one.
There are many different ways how to reward members with commission. For example you can reward members only with percentage of the spent price by their referred members on the site. Our Points System allows to reward members only with points for referred members' activity.
What is matrix option - Spillover:
Using any referral link or banner new members can join and they will be automatically placed into the sponsor matrix. Following above example, if we have matrix 3X8, each member can have only 3 people directly invited in own matrix in down-line level, but what to do if this member invites more then 3 profiles? If you are sponsor of more than 3 members, your new members will be placed under your other recruits to help them get started. This is called spillover. So, not only you can refer new profiles, your up-line and down-line members can help you to fill your personal matrix. Members can communicate with their invited members and teach them how to invite new members.
There will be lots of people cheering to see this one published! Nice work AQB Soft - there was no doubt a huge effort required to create this - it adds a huge possibility to the potential to raise revenue using your UNA website and is a welcome addition to the UNA-verse!
Concerning Affiliate 12.0.1 --- Just to inform You ---> Please check the AppUpdate/Version in Una Apps Market. I get Affiliate 12.0.1 as ready for update, but same version is installed allready.
That will be very helpful. It will solve an important problem
AQB Soft sorry for inconvenience, do you have any idea how long it will be to fix this problem? we made a lot of promises to our fans about the affiliate system and we are pressured to get it to work with facebook/google signups.
We have contacted with you directly via PM concerning this problem. Login should work with Affiliate System by default.
I think it's also important to have an additional "referral code" to be manually used when referrals sign up. This is useful for users sign up via mobile app... during registration, a "referral code" field can be optional added....
Uptill now this module is not working, not a good one at all, 2days from now another new months will start, yet the referral and the points module have not worked on my site. tired of sending mails. please i need quick support to get this issues resolved
- · a minute ago
I do not know how else to reach you.
, I sent you mail every day to let you know the importance of this project. Without the referral system working properly, I do not have business using the UNA.
My business has been on a stand still because of this Referral /Affiliate issue not working properly.
Users can't register new downlines under them.
Please attend to this ones and for all.
should finish the registration by himself to be sure that the
registration is real. So, the all information about referrer is stored
in browser of the potential member and after his confirmation user is
added to the referred list automatically. It means that if admin
confirms the profile it will not work. But admin can add referral to
this member manually via studio->affiliate system->members area.
It will take the same take as profile confirmation via Accounts module.
We will update this algorithm in the next version and to make it possible to register user after admin's confirmation.
Hello, @AQB Soft AQB, uptill now till now my issues are not resolved. this is not good for business. i have sent you several mails, no reply.
