Days till visitor is consider as affiliate’s referral

Suppose an affiliate has shared a link with the user. The user clicks on the link and registers on the store. Now, the referral will be active on the store from the day of registration till the number of days set by the admin here.

Days till affiliate get commission on referral’s orders

Once a referral has registered on the store, the affiliate will get commission on referral orders from the day of registration till the number of days set by admin. If the admin has set 0 in this field, then the affiliate will get commission for an unlimited time period. Here, unlimited time period means upto the number of days set in “Days till visitor is consider as affiliate’s referral” field.

Let me explain to you these two fields with the help of an example.

If the admin has set 10 days in “Days till visitor is consider as affiliate’s referral” and 0 in “Days till affiliate get commission on referral’s orders”, then the referral order commission can be assigned within 10 days of referral registration.

If the admin has set 10 days in “Days till visitor is consider as affiliate’s referral” and 3 in “Days till affiliate get commission on referral’s orders”, then the referral order commission can be assigned within 3 days of referral registration.

Also, the admin can set out of range commission that is assigned to the affiliate if order value crosses the defined range. Suppose the admin has set out of range commission as 15%. Now, if the referrals place orders worth $220 in a month, then an affiliate will get a 15% commission.
