Add A Two-Tier Affiliate Plan

In this article, we will go over adding a two-tiered affiliate plan within Backpack and creating a tier two affiliate registration link. Creating a two-tiered affiliate plan allows affiliates to refer other affiliates under them. The referring affiliate can collect a second tier commission on their referred affiliates sales.

For example, the tier 1 commission is set at 10% and tier 2 is set at 5%. The referred affiliate makes a sale of $100 dollars, they will make a tier 1 commission of 10% ($10) and the original affiliate will make a tier 2 commission of 5% ($5).


Prior to getting started, you will need to have the following:
