Affiliate marketing is an effective marketing strategy

This is the process of earning a commission by promoting services or products of other companies. Once affiliates refer a sale to you, they get paid a commission. There are few numbers to prove that Affiliate Marketing is real effectively process to increase merchant sale and this marketing method growing up significantly.


Affiliate marketing is considered to be one of the world's fastest growing and best internet marketing techniques to earn money online and I will explain why

Build Affiliate Campaign

Store admin has rights to create as well as manage clearly unlimited campaigns through the name of campaign, active time, status and priority. With each Affiliate program, you can reward different commissions amount to specific Affiliate groups. Besides, it is necessary to set the priority for a new campaign, and the campaign, whose priority is higher, is active first.


Milestone contains a thousand of lifetime events. Its aim is making an enormous Affiliate’s efforts to earn more and more commissions by reaching a number of commissions, referrals, sales (any tier) and so on. Besides, you can also put Affiliate into higher rank with superior benefits. For example from Gold to Platinum, Platinum to Diamond. This is one of the smart ways to establish the loyalty program.

Pay Per Click

Pay Per Click is counted if Affiliate uses banners to refer and store owner takes responsibility to set conversion rate from clicks into money.

Affiliate program divides the clicks into 2 types which are raw clicks and unique clicks. The raw clicks are from the same IPs while the unique clicks are the one implemented by different IPs. Thus, the rate of the unique clicks is usually greater than the raw click’s so that you will evaluate rightly the Affiliate program.

Pay Per Lead

In the Pay Per Lead configuration, you will set commissions for some actions Affiliate generates such as registration or newsletter subscription. In case customer unsubscribe or delete the account, the Affiliate might be deducted commissions if need.

Pay Per Mile

This is the advanced Affiliate solution from Magento 2 Affiliate Extension. Affiliate will receive commissions only when he reach exact number impression of a banner.

Report Data

Magento 2 Affiliate Report plugin is the support tool to review, evaluate and adjust the Affiliate program how to gain your business target in the certain time period from generally to specifically.

Referral tools

Provided available by store owners, Affiliate will use the referral link, code or email (referrals will enter the email address within registration) in order to send to friends. When anyone signs up or purchase via the Affiliate referral tool, commissions will be calculated immediately for that Affiliate. Especially, it is easier and more effective when the extension provides Smart Link and Direct Link for Affiliate to refer friends. Smart Link allows customizing the patch of your original URL, for example _gift_from_linda. What about Direct Link? From Direct Link option in Affiliate account, carry out to enter and validate the registered domain by 3 steps, then upload the direct link to the website. Thus, the software will auto-plus commissions for that Affiliate when there is the number of clicks from his domain. Social networks

On the other hands, social networks as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn,... and even email are ready for sharing.

Store Credit

In order to restrict the lack of transparency or losing money, all of Affiliates are both supplied a store credit as a personal wallet. It is shown in detail the balance, total earned, total paid and even history of transactions (time and date, name of transaction and status) Store Credit is more amazing when it is applied for payment process, that means just tick on check out with Affiliate account balance to pay purchase.
