Commission tiers feature

Affiliate networks pay affiliates bonuses to encourage their progress and gain their loyalty. The rewards are usually based on the revenue, amount of conversions, or new users. Affise clients run contests with special offers for their affiliates, increasing their payout when they reach a particular number of conversions or a certain amount of revenue.

Commission tiers is a special tool that helps you automate the process of calculating income and the relevant bonus for an affiliate.

The feature is extremely useful for big brands, agencies, gambling industry, fin-tech industry, and so on.

💰 The Commission tiers feature is available only for certain plans. Contact your Affise account manager to get the feature.

Commission tiers settings

To set up Commission tiers, go to Offers > a certain offer > Offer's edit page > Commission tiers.

To work with this feature, you need to set up a specific rule, a condition based on which affiliates get bonuses.

The rule contains three lines.

First Line

  • Type: a dimension the system counts to trigger the rule: conversions, payouts, afprice. If you want to trigger the rule when a certain amount of the conversions is reached, choose the Conversions type. If you want to trigger the rule when the affiliates reach a certain payout amount, choose the Payouts type. If you want to trigger the rule when a certain afprice sum will be reached, choose the Afprice type.

    ⚠️ The Conversions type counts all the statuses of the received conversions, except for declined ones with the "payment not found" comment. The system counts the Payouts type by conversions' payouts to the affiliates.

  • Goals: the rule can count all conversions for all goals or conversions on a particular goal. Type goal value to select a particular one. The system takes all the goals from the offer's payouts.

  • Affiliates: you can apply the rule to all affiliates separately or a particular affiliate. Type affiliate ID.

  • Countries: you can apply the rule to all countries or to certain countries. Type the name of the country.

Second Line

  • Value: a number of conversions or amount of money.

  • Timeframe: the rule counts conversions or budget for a certain period: day, week, month, all time. For instance, if you choose the month type, the system resets the counter of conversions on the last day of the month at 11:59 p.m.

  • Level: the payment type which the system changes according to the rule: payouts, total revenue, payouts and total revenue.

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

Third Line

  • Status: conversions' statuses. It works for all timeframes and types (conversions or payouts). The option can be helpful if you don't want to encourage affiliates if they have declined conversions, for example.

  • Modified by/Changed to: you can choose the following options: modified by fix and percent, changed to fix or percent, modified by fix and percent from afprice.

    Example: If your default payout equals 1 $, afprice equals 5 $, and you select in the rule:

    • modified by fix "2":
      the system updates the conversion payout to 3 $ (default 1 $ + bonus of 2 $).

    • modified by % "40":
      the system changes the conversion's payout to 1,4 $ (default 1 $ + 0,4, because 0,4 is 40% of 1 $).

    • changed to fix "2":

      the system changes the conversion's payout to 2 $.

    • changed to % "40":
      the system updates the conversion's payout to 0,4 $ (default 1 $ x 0,4, because 0,4 is 40% of 1 $).

    • modified by fix from afprice "2":

      the system updates conversion's payout to 7 $ (default 5 $ + bonus of 2 $).

    • modified by % from afprice "40":
      the system changes conversion's payout to 7 $ (default 5 $ + 2, because 2 is 40% of 5 $).

      ⚠️ "Modified by fix from afprice" and "modified by % from afprice" can be useful when you have a minimum deposit that affiliates can make, and you allow them to make it by several payments. If in this case the options based on payout, the system doesn't count these several payments and the affiliate doesn't get any bonuses from it. Whereas two above-mentioned types allow you to pay affiliates bonuses, as the conversion's payout counts by afprice, not payout.

  • Value: a number which you can add to the default payout or replace the default payout.

⚠️ After creating a new rule, the system locks some fields to prevent a counter reset. Delete a rule to reset the counter.


The rule for a particular affiliate has a priority in frames of the goal set up in this rule.

For example, there is one personal rule for a particular affiliate and one general rule for all affiliates.

It works like that:

After the affiliate №2 reaches 1 conversion with the Registration goal value, the system changes all further conversions with this particular goal to 25 according to the first rule.

After the affiliate №2 reaches 4 conversions with any goals, the system changes all further conversions with other goals, except Registration, to 75 according to the second rule.

All other affiliates meet the second rule only.

Commission tiers in Statistics

In the Conversions slice of Statistics, conversions with bonuses have the relevant comment:

⚠️ The system doesn't change the default offer's payouts settings once you apply the bonuses. It updates payouts on a conversion level only.
