Recurring commissions allow you to reward your affiliates for recurring payments, for example for hosting or membership. With Post Affiliate Pro (PAP) and the Recurring commissions feature the recurring commissions for affiliates can be generated automatically at given period (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.) until you stop them.
To enable recurring commissions you have to make sure there is a cron job running regarding your installation of PAP.
In case you use a hosted solution of PAP (installed on our servers) then the cron job is configured by default.
So, if the cron job is runnig, then navigate in the merchant panel to Features > Recurring commissions and activate the Recurring commissions feature.
The system will ask you to restart the application. Just click Yes.
Recurring commissions can be defined in the commission settings of each campaign. So navigate to Campaigns > Campaign manager and then click the pencil icon next to a campaign you wish to set up a recurring commission for and in its "Commission settings" tab you can define the desired recurring commission structure.
Now the new link appears in left menu under Transactions. Whenever a new transactions is be made, the commissions are recorded in Commissions and also the recurring commission is saved at "Transactions" > "Recurring commission rules". This entry is just for your information. It is not a real commission - the real one is generated based on this recurring one.
As you can see, each transaction has its unique ID. This ID is used when creating real commission at each period of time. E.g. first transaction in the screenshot above will be created in one month again with the same ID.
It is also possible to define multitier commissions for recurring commissions.
When you want to stop the recurrence you only have to delete the particular recurring commission at
