We would like to explain how the payout works for the affiliate program. Attached is a screen shot of a customer with a few orders. This screenshot shows how the payout is calculated.
For Example -
Order #1369 Shows that payout is calculated via SKU from a $154.00 order at 15% royalties to equal $23.10.
Order #1369 Also shows that payout is calculated via LINK from a $154.00 at 7% royalties to equal $10.78
This equals $33.88 for a $154.00 order profit. This equals 22% of total order.
The price then adds the two amounts together to show a total of $298.00 which is not a true value of the order, just a representation of how commissions were tracked.
The reason they track this way is because if someone orders your merchandise and someone else's after clicking on your link you would make an additional 7% on all sales so they need to show how much of that 7% is coming from LINK tracking. When this would happen it would show a different number for SKU tracking and LINK tracking because SKU is royalty and LINK is from the generator.
