Title: Referal Affiliate systems
Post by: filterit on April 22, 2010, 20:00:50 pm

Just wondered what referal systems people have had experience with.  This is for inbound links to our site so that we can give the referer a percentage of the product price.

I beliver the options are

Virtue Affiliate

I am looking at these for a client now and its just a nightmare. I paid for VM Affiliate but it doesn't track sales. Its a known issue but they haven't provided the plugin fix (although they mark the forum as solved). I've emailed, posted, put tickets in, been waiting for 3 or 4 weeks - nothing.

I've just tried J Affilia now and it seems to be just as confusing and its not working for me either. The post on the VM forums talk about it not requiring Joomla hacks but as soon as you i8nstall the componen it tells you to hack the files - I clicked on the link to take me to the instructions bu it just took me to the component and there was no info there about hacks. If you click documentation on their site it tells you the documentation is out of date and you need to go to the download area where you need to register (which you don't) then you click on the document in there and it tells you that you do have to make hacks. I don't know what the support is like I guess I am about to find out.

We are looking at the same challenge for our site
There is also iDevAffiliate which looks pretty good but it is pricy.
Please share your experiences with us regarding the integration of affiliate sales management software with VirtueMart.

Affiliate plugin for AwoCoupon

This is an affiliate system based on coupon codes.  You give an individual a coupon code, they go out sell your site, and commissions are calculated on orders that use the 'affilate' coupons.

Regarding @webuser 's post:

VM Affiliate works and tracks sales perfectly. The tracking plugin which ensures perfect tracking of clicks and sales is available for download in the Customer Area.

Hope that helps!

Thank you!
