Commonly used terms in RecomSale
Before doing affiliate marketing, you need to create a standard program in RecomSale, in which you need to set up commission rules, mainly including commission rate and cookie duration. We have recommended commonly used values, and you can save them with one click to complete the creation of standard programs.
After creating standard program, RecomSale generates default program page. You can customize this page, including brand logo, slogan, brand introduction, text color and more. You can embed a link to this page in your store menu to guide customers or social media influencers browse and apply for cooperation.
The status of the affiliate's cooperation with the program includes Pending, Approved, Denied, and Stopped. Only approved affiliates can promote your store or products. Affiliates who have stopped their cooperation cannot continue to promote your store or products, but the referral orders and commission bills that have been generated will not be affected.
Affiliate links include store links and product links. Affiliates will use these links to promote your stores or products, and any order placed through this link will become a referral order.
Cookies duration is the maximum number of days between the last click and the order (usually 30-90 days), after a customer clicks on a affiliate's promotional link, RecomSale will record a referral order when the customer places an order using the same device and browser during that time and does not use another member link when placing the order. After this number of days, no clicks and referral orders will be recorded.
Any order made by customers thanks to affiliate will be counted as a referral order.
The referral order has paid the commission, but in the end the customer refunds, and the promoter needs to refund the commission. The commission that needs to be refunded will be deducted in the next payment to protect your rights.
In the "Payments" menu, merchants can click "Generate Bills", and the system will change the status of the approved referral order to unpaid, and then calculate the pending commission bills based on the unpaid referral order and commission refund orders.
