LuxSci Affiliates receive commissions on referrals of new customers of LuxSci … up to 20% for the life of the referred customer’s new account.
To get the commission, the Affiliate’s account needs to be linked to the referred customer’s account. In the past, there were only 3 ways to do this:
- Give the customer a special code to enter into the ordering wizard
- Have the customer click on a link to get to our site. The resulting tracking cookie is captured by LuxSci during the ordering process.
- Contact LuxSci Sales after the fact and request manual linking after proving that the customer was referred by you.
These are all very good and useful mechanisms, however:
- Some affiliates don’t want to make their customers use a code (its extra work)
- Some affiliates don’t want customers to know that they are going to get a commission from their new account
- Even if you give a referral opportunity a code or a link, there is no way to guarantee that it will be used!
- It can be a lot of work to track sign ups and contact Sales after the fact.
