Below, there is a grid with the most valuable affiliates that includes the following columns: Affiliate; Total Earning; Clicks. The right part of the page illustrates the latest activities.
Now, let’s see which management options admins get concerning the profiles created for affiliates. The Accounts page contains a grid that consists of 10 columns (sorting and filtering are supported):
- Affiliate Since.
Each account is divided into 4 tabs: General Information, Transactions, Withdrawals, and Referred Customers. The following information is available in General Information:

Next, you can select specific cart item or product attributes for conditions that will define to which items in the cart the commission will be applied.
The last section on the page lets you create an unlimited number of tiers defining a commission type (percent of order amount or cart amount or fixed amount) and amount.
As for transactions, you can view all of them in a grid that consists of 9 columns: ID; Affiliate; Amount; Type; Description; Status; Hold To; Created At; Updated At. The data provided in this grid is the same as in the Transactions tab of the account view page.
The same is about the Withdrawals grid. It consists of the same 7 columns as the grid described above in the affiliate’s account: ID, Affiliate, Amount, Fee, Request Date, Type, and Action.
As for the Banners grid, it is divided into 7 columns: ID, Preview, Title, Type, Is Active, Statistic (number of clicks and views), and Action (Edit, Delete).
