Sub Affiliate Notification Emails

The affiliates are receiving the New Sub Affiliate Sign Up Notifications and thinking (rightfully so) that those subaffiliates are directly under them and not on a lower tier. Lower tiers= lower commission levels. Is there a way to send Sub Affiliate Sign Up Notifications to the affiliate for ONLY the first level sub affiliate? I am sorry, but this is not possible. Only direct parent affiliate gets a notification email about new sub-affiliate ...

URL Masking for replicated sites?

Is there any sort of a plugin or another way to set up the replicated site links to have their URL's masked to something different? I have seen the specified instructions for changing the .htaccess file code, to have the site replicated to an actual domain that is different from the default domain. However, this is not compatible with bigcommerce which does not allow access to the .htaccess code. Their support team suggested placing code in the .htaccess/content/ folder, but there isn't a guar...

This is possible to achieve with our Lifetime referrals plugin: Basically if the sale is made by a new customer, Post Affiliate P...

Please note: I don't mean to fire a postback call back FROM after it has already registered a conversion but TO for it to be the conversion indication instead of the Im...

Each merchant can be partner manager? Is it normal?

At first I thought that only network owner can be the partner manager. I set one of the merchant accounts to standard account. And after that this merchant is the partner manager and not network owner anymore. And now the problem is that I can't turn back the network owner to partner manager. What sense make this? Well the affiliate manager information is loaded from the default merchant account. So if you want to change the affiliate information in the default merchant account, then you will ne...

Setting userid (of an affiliate) on visitor that already has a cookie

We're using a method outlined in one of the KB articles or forum (can't remember where now) that detects whether or not an incoming visitor already has a PAP cookie and if not, sets it to an internal affiliate which we never pay out. This is because we have many radio, email, Twitter, etc. campaigns that have nothing to do with affiliates so we're treating unreferred traffic as referred by ourselves. The problem is that some of our affiliates will be working exclusively with coupon codes becau...
