Hello,
I am currently using the starter program so far so good :cheer:
I have a few questions please on how the affiliate process works.
I have been through the demo and if I understand correctly
The affiliate joins HikaShop the same way as a customer?
When the affiliate logs on they are offered the affiliate link?
They can then choose from the banners and text links provided.
Do they have an account view that shows how many clicks etc they have achieved?
Can they see the balance they have earned?
Can they view the banners before they join?
Many thanks for your very good extension and Happy Christmas
Keith

Hi,

Affiliates can either create their account when purchasing, or via the joomla registration page. Or you can even create their account from the backend. Which ever solution works for you.
When an affiliate logs in nothing is proposed to him. The login is handled by the joomla login module or whatever module you use. That is independent from HikaShop. However, you can configure the login modules to redirect to the affiliate page for example. On our website, on the other end, we just chose to add a new menu at the top which is only displayed for registered users and through which they can access the affiliate program.

On the banners page, they can choose to register or leave the affiliate program. If they are registered to the affiliate program, they will see the total of their earnings. There is also an option in the configuration to activate advanced statistics display and which will allow affiliates to see the detail of their earnings.

The affiliate program page is also accessible while logged out. Only the banners listing will be displayed

Thanks for the quick reply,
Affiliates from my experience are like customers they have to be very comfortable with the checks balances and security or they will not join.
Do you intend to improve the affiliate process in the future?

Well, no one asked for improvements on that end so we don't have plans to improve it for now :)
Do you see problems with the affiliate program ?
