The banners you can create


How it works

Case 1

Say, you have a customer Lucy who has bought a dress in your store. Her friend Ann, a famous fashion blogger, tells her: “The dress looks gorgeous. Where have you bought it?”. Lucy copies the referral link to your store from her account and sends it to Lucy. When Lucy follows the link and buys something, Ann gets her reward.

Case 2

Lucy likes your products too and joins your affiliate program. She places a banner of your product on her blog. When her followers click on that link and visit your store, the blogger Lucy gets the commission for the clicks. Ann gets her commission too, because she invited Lucy in the program.

Great addon, very useful. Also simtech provided great support. They adapted the addon for the basic theme free of charge for me.

This is a great add-on and it would be nice if on graphic banner admin could set the size of banners manually and on pay per click admin could find out for example how many clicks per day should be paid or calculated base to user and IP.
