Any way to EXCLUDE product ID from commissions??

Jul 15, 2010

My client has very few items which they do NOT offer commissions. It seems cumbersome to add over 100 item numbers to their product ID for each campaign just to exclude a few numbers. Is there any way to 'reverse' the product ID field in each campaign so that if it IS listed it is NOT counted?

Thanks for any ideas you can provide. :)

The campaign matching algorithm always works the following way:

So, if in campaign X (with 0% commission) I define the product ID of "red car" and someone makes a purchase of 'red car' then it will immediately match campaign X and there will no commission generated for that purchase, more exactly, it won't be even tracked , unless the "Save transaction with zero commission" is checked in the particular campaign's commission settings.

What about creating a campaign with zero commission for those few products?

ok, that sounds MUCH easier than I was making it :p - let me run something past you to be *sure* I understand. I am trying to un-train myself from my old affiliate program. ;-)

If I create a campaign with certain product IDs set at zero-commission and another campaign is set at 20% commissions, the zero-commission campaign will 'override' the fact that a 20% commission in another campaign does not have any product IDs listed, so the product purchased and listed in any one campaign at zero commissions will *never* generate a commission, even if an affiliate uses links from another campaign. Is that correct?
