The built-in affiliate program from Ecommerce Templates enables you to
run a complete affiliate suite from your site - potential affiliates can
sign up and enter their information and password, and you can view the
orders they generate through the online admin section. How the affiliate
program is run is completely up to you - you decide on the percentage that
will be paid out, how often and by what method - all the partner needs
to do is place a link on their site including their partner code to earn
By default the affiliate cookie is set to 30 days - this means that
if someone visits your site through an affiliate link one day and buys
on another the partner will earn the commission as long as 30 days haven't
passed since their first visit. You can change how long you want a cookie
to stay active.
You can also use the newsletter feature to send emails to your affiliates.
