Commission Editor Options

Commission SID (System ID)
The SID (System ID) is a unique number that identifies the commission to the system.  This number is set by the software and cannot be changed.

The affiliate's first name, last name and SID number. Click on the affiliate's SID number to open the affiliate in the Customer Editor.

Tracking ID
This is the affiliate's Tracking ID (TID) number to which the commission will be applied. Every commission must be associated with a Tracking ID number.

Order ID
The Order ID to which the commission is applied. Commissions manually credited to an affiliate may either be associated with an order by entering an Order ID in this field (as in the case of a sales commission), or a "stand-alone" commission may be recorded by leaving this field blank (as in the case of an affiliate bonus or adjustment).

Commission Amount
The value of this commission. Commissions with a negative value are allowed.

Email Notification
If this option is set to "YES", then a notification email will be sent to the affiliate, informing them about the commission.
