FirstPromoter provides the capability to build a multi-tiered commission structure, limited to three tiers to prevent abuse. This feature is exclusively available on the Business plan or higher.

This is for FirstPromoter v2, if you are still using v1, please check this article

This feature proves effective in rapidly expanding your affiliate program by incentivizing promoters to recruit other promoters. The more sales their sub-affiliates generate, the higher the earnings for the parent promoter.

You can set up two types of tiered commissions as rewards for the parent promoter:

A. Percentage from Sub-Affiliate's Commission
Example: with a 10% second tier commission and a 30% normal commission, the parent promoter earns $3 for any $100 sale generated by their sub-affiliate (10% of the sub-affiliate's $30 commission). The total commissions to be paid would be $33.

B. Percentage from Original Sale Generated by Sub-Affiliate
In this case, with a 10% second tier commission and a 30% normal commission, the parent promoter earns $10 for any $100 sale generated by their sub-affiliate (10% of the original $100 sale). The total commissions to be paid would be $40.

How to set up Second and Third Tier Commission on a Campaign level

  • To enable second tier commission for all promoters in a campaign, navigate to the "Campaigns" section, and "Edit Campaign";

  • Go to the "Rewards setup" tab, click "+Add other rewards" and then click "Tier Reward"

Note: The "+Add other reward" button appears only if you already have a sale reward added.

How to set up Second and Third Tier Commission on a Single Promoter

  • Go to the promoter's overview page.

  • Scroll down and click the "Customize" button in the Rewards for promoter section.

  • Select "Add other rewards" and click on "Tier reward"

  • If you want to check more information on setting rewards for a single promoter, please check this article.

Affiliate Recruitment Link and Sub-Affiliates Details
Once the second tier commission is enabled, promoters will find an additional page on their affiliate dashboard called "Sub-affiliates". From this page, they can obtain the recruitment link to share with their friends. The recruitment link, similar to a referral link, redirects visitors to the promoter signup page instead of the company homepage.

Assigning/Removing a Parent Promoter Manually from the Admin Dashboard:

  • Go to the "Promoters" section in the left menu;

  • Click on the three-dot menu next to the specific promoter;

  • Select "Assign parent promoter";

  • Here you will see the option to assign a parent promoter or remove the current parent promoter.
