VM Affiliate is an affiliate tracking system which allows VirtueMart store owners to easily deploy a full-fledged affiliate tracking system, in order to operate their own 'in-house' affiliate marketing program.
It is extremely easy to install, configure and use, has all the features and flexibility you'd need, and runs by itself - just deploy it and let it make you money.
Having just been republished on the JED, VM Affiliate is the first ever affiliate marketing extension for VirtueMart and Joomla!, starting back in 2006 and growing with the community over almost 10 years.

Key Features

Fast & tight integration
With a 1-click installation, VM Affiliate integrates tightly with VirtueMart's backend, in both appearance and function, just as if it was natively developed as part of VirtueMart.

Online tracking
VM Affiliate automatically detects the affiliate ID from incoming links, and tracks referral visits and orders.

Offline tracking
VM Affiliate supports tracking of users referred through offline advertising efforts, such as printed material. The user can type the username of the referrer, or select his name from a list.

Coupon-based tracking
Your affiliates' usernames can become discount coupon codes which can be tracked. Thus, an affiliate can hand out the coupon to a person, which gains a discount, while the affiliate earns a commission.

Multi-tier tracking
Commonly referred to as MLM – Multi-Level Marketing enables your affiliates to refer other affiliates, which leads to more marketing, thus greater profits, for both the merchant and the affiliate! VM Affiliate can track and commission up to 5 tier/levels.

Automatic commissioning
VM Affiliate automatically assigns the corresponding commissions to the corresponding affiliates, only if the order is finalized (confirmed or shipped). Likewise, if a commission is given to the affiliate, but then the order is cancelled, the commission will be deducted from the affiliate's balance.

Affiliate Panel
VM Affiliate provides a complete affiliate panel for affiliates, where they can see their earnings, visits, orders, have access to advertising material, monitor their referred traffic, conduct an e-mail campaign, or update their personal information.

Affiliate Management
Goes without saying that you have full control over your affiliates. You can add, remove, edit, enable or disable them, and edit their preferences.

Advertising Material
VM Affiliate allows you to upload banners (either images, animated GIFs or flash SWF files), create text ads (either normal text or HTML), or manage the automatically generated product and category ads.

Affiliate Program Configuration
Without any bloated settings, you can specify key preferences of your affiliate program, regarding tracking, registration, payments, and so on.

Default Terms & Conditions
Don't feel like writing a huge terms & conditions text? Don't worry! VM Affiliate provides such a text by default, automatically customized using your site's name and address. So you can just review it and make sure it meets your needs.

Payout Method Management
You can add or modify existing payment methods that you like to offer to your affiliates. You can pay them by PayPal (semi-automatic), Check, Bank Transfer, or you can easily add your own payout methods, or edit existing ones.

Logs & Statistics
Easily monitor, review and filter through traffic, sales, payments, or affiliate program's performance. VM Affiliate logs and provides access to all this information.

MVC Framework
Following Joomla!'s development standards, VM Affiliate uses the MVC architecture for the frontend Affiliate Panel, which enables you to easily modify the layout of your affiliates' panel, and preserve this layout, even if you update VM Affiliate in the future.

At the moment, VM Affiliate is available in 19 languages. Need another? VM Affiliate uses standard INI files, which are very easily translatable. Only 300 lines, or 1330 words.

VM Affiliate achieves all the tracking and integration out-of-the-box, without modifying a single VirtueMart file. The smart tracking plugin takes care of everything.

Ease of use

Value for money
You should get "lifetime licence", but its not true. My account was blocked and I can not download anymore.
I used this to: I was buy this lifetime licence and developer ask me for extra money for support. Emilian is a cheater, after get my extra money for support he was stop comunicate and support never make. I must ask PayPal directly for my payment refundation. After all I can not download new ver.
Ease of use
It is not working at all!
The documentation doesn't match with the functionality of the component. It is not workin at all.
Value for money
Too expensive for a not working component.
I used this to: Zero Support. It is not working with the latest virtuemart component. If you uninstall this affiliate it will compromise Virtuemart structure. It is expensive and useless. We try to open several tickets with no response. Just peacefull silence!!!! We also try to call them. Zero!!
