How to set up Commission Tiers?

Affise’s commission tiers  can be easily set up and found in the offer's settings under a related tab 'Commission Tiers':


Since Commission Tiers is a functionality to increase payout if the revenue or the amount of conversions reaches the number defined by you, you need to set up a specific rule,a condition under which bonuses will be applied to the affiliates.


The following fields should be filled in the rule:

Upper Line

Type: conversions/budgeta dimension to be counted by the system in order for the rule to be triggered. If you'd like to trigger the rule when a certain amount of the conversions is reached - choose 'conversions'. If you'd like to trigger the rule when a certain payout amout is reached by the Affiliate(-s) - choose 'budget'.

        'Budget' type is counted by conversions' payouts  to the affiliates.

Goals - the rule can count all conversions for all goals or conversions on a particular goal. Start typing goal value to select a particular goal value. All the goals are taken from the offer's payouts. 

Affiliates - the rule can be applied to all affiliates (separately) or a particular affiliate. Start typing Affiliate ID in your

Value - a threshold (a number of conversions/ amount of money).

Timeframe - the rule will count conversions/budget over a period of time: day, week, month, all time. For instance, if you choose timeframe 'month', the counter of conversions will be zeroed on the last day of month on 11:59 p.m.

Lower Line

Goals - the system can increase the payouts of all conversions or conversions on particular goals.

Modified by/to (fix/%) - the payout can be modified by fix, modified by percent, changed to fix, changed to percent. Ex.: If your default payout equals 1 $, once the Commission Tier should be:

  • modified to fix '2' -> conversion's payout will be changed to 2 $
  • modified by fix '2' -> conversion's payout will be updated to 3 $ (default 1 $ + bonus of 2 $)
  • modified to % '40' -> conversion's payout will be updated to 0,4 $ (default 1 $ x 0,4)
  • modified by % '40' -> conversion's payout will be changed to 1,4 $ (default 1 $ + 0,4)

Value - a number which can be added to the default payout or can replace the default payout set at the current moment.
