Enhanced Commission Rate Experience

Update or modify commission rules

Advertisers can easily update their default commission rate and establish commission rules that suit their needs. Commission rules can be based on individual affiliate partners OR specific parameters

Automated notifications for commission rate changes

Affiliate partners will automatically receive 7 days’ notice before an advertiser's commission update is live.

If an advertiser updates their default commission rate, all affiliates on their program will receive a notification about the change. However, it may not affect you if you are on an existing or scheduled custom commission rate.

To receive updates directly in their email inbox, affiliates must ensure their notifications are turned on. Please follow the below instructions to turn on notifications. 


  1. Improved Transparency: Automating commission rate notifications improves transparency for both advertisers and affiliates.

  2. Save Time: With automated notifications, advertisers can focus on developing partnerships and improving their programs without spending too much time on manually informing affiliates.
  3. Advertiser Autonomy: Advertisers gain full control over their affiliate program with self-service commission management. They can proactively adjust rates based on business strategies, eliminating the need for constant communication with support teams and affiliates.
