The Admin has the ability to set commission rates for affiliate groups (e.g. Affiliate Group A receives 10% commission for all products and Affiliate Group B receives 20% commission for all products), and set different values for specific e-commerce product categories. For example, 20% for ebooks, but only 15% for Workbooks. Admins also have the ability to set when affiliates are paid (weekly or monthly).
This means that, while Affiliate Group A receives 10% commission for all products, you have the ability to control a specific product category's commission rate (like an ebook). Admins also have the ability to set a specific commission rate for an individual product. For those that need it, this level of granular control over commission rates is powerful and simple to use.
