I have a quick questions. We are about to set up and affiliation program and we have figured it out how to setup. The question is if there is a way whoever clicks on the url of the affiliate's website and comes to our site to get automatically a discount but only if he comes from the affiliate's website.

Thank you!!

Hi,

There is no option for that.

You can do the opposite: when the customer uses a specific coupon code, you can force a specific affiliate.

So I have another question about this. I set up a coupon for e.g. 5% off and I "force to affiliation" to a specific affiliate. I have set up the "percentage fee on sales" at the configuration/affiliate at hikashop for 10%. My question is what happens in the following scenarios:

1. Customer comes from affliate's website and uses the coupon: I guess customer gets 5% off and affiliate gets 5% of the sale.
2. Customer comes from affiliate's website but doesn't use the coupon: I guess affiliate gets the whole 10% of the sale.
3. Customer doesn't come from affiliate's website but uses the coupon: I guess customer gets 5% off and affiliate gets 5% of the sale.
4. Customer doesn't come from affiliate's website but doesn't use the coupon: I guess affiliate gets the whole 10% of the sale, if the cookies are still active for the affliate's website at customer's browser.

Please let me know if that is correct?

Thank you so much!!

Hi,

If you configured 10% fee for your affiliates, they will always get 10%.
You can override the percentage fee per affiliate (in the customer edition interface) ; but the percentage do not change if a coupon is used or not.
Now it is a feature that we can add in our TODO list if you want to specify a new affiliate fee when the "force affiliation to" is used on a coupon.

Thank you for your quick reply!!

So just to clarify things, if I have a coupon code for 5% off and I have set that forced to a specific affiliate, then the affiliate will get 5% of the sale and the customer 5% off?

I'm trying to figure out, how exactly the "force affiliation to" works.

Thanks again!!

Hi,

No. If you set 5% in the coupon, the customer will get 5% that's all. If you set the "force affiliation to" to a partner, when the customer will use that coupon code, the partner will be added as affiliate to the order and he will receive the commission percentage as stated either in the settings of that partner, or in the Affiliates section of the HikaShop configuration.
