I use a custom lesson-booking and payments system on my site, so 'Joomla That!' had to do some bespoke development to integrate this with their off-the-shelf plugin. They did this very quickly and communicated with me throughout the work. Prices and so on were upfront and honest; in my opinion anyone has been 'burnt' before by custom developers should have no concerns about approaching them for this kind of integration. The service and support was absolutely exemplary.
I also had a couple of questions at the end and one styling issue which were resolved very quickly.
I think this extension does everything you could expect from an affiliates system. One thing I'd love to see would be the ability to create a kind-of gallery for banner images, so affiliates could browse through and then copy-paste a snippet of code that would include their individual link. As it is, affiliates are simply provided with an individual URL that they can use however they wish. I suppose that maximises flexibility and keeps it simple.
You can pay affiliates a percentage or a set rate, but as far as I can tell you can't change the rate depending on the product that was sold or the overall price of the sale. That's not something I need but there might be people out there who'd need something like that - their profit margins could differ between products or they might want affiliates to push particular items so could offer better commissions. Apologies if that is actually in there - I have a tendency to skim read...
So overall, Affiliate Tracker provides an excellent way to promote your site with very low upfront costs. I expect it to become one of the most popular extensions in the Joomla directory. The support was probably the best I've experienced, too.
Contacted support through their forum - and got an instant reply, they tracked the cause (at this point I hadn't realized it didn't support a Guest Checkout) - over the weekend they developed a modification for the plugin - which now works brilliantly, and, Geminal kept me up to date with progress, so at no point I was left wondering. Great experience, I recommend the Joomlathat Affiliate Tracker 100%
Further to this I had asked for the program to track recurring subscriptions and to assign the affiliate the commission each time the user renewed their subscription. I was quoted a fee to produce this however Support felt this would be a useful addition for all users, so wrote this into the program at no cost and has published this for others to use.
I am very impressed with the way this works - both integrating into the membership software and the affiliate section that affiliates can log into on the front end of the site to view. You have full control over what happens with commissions, and can chose to accept conversions or not in the back end of the site before the affiliate is made aware of the conversion. Emails are sent to all parties so there is no need to have to log in every day and check whether signups have been made. Referrals can be checked through the front end for each affiliate and where the referral originated from. Backend can manage all affiliates and can make payments to affiliates whenever you chose just by clicking on the Pay Affiliate button. This can be linked to PayPal or if the affiliate chooses by a wire transfer.
Great product - thank you.
