Virtina is the leading name in WooCommerce customization projects. Our experts do everything from developing a fully-customized WooCommerce store to customizing existing plugins. A leading eCommerce company from Cameroon recently contacted us for our expertise in WooCommerce plugin development and customization.The client ran a significantly large eCommerce store with a robust affiliate program. Our experts had to customize a WooCommerce affiliate plugin to implement custom features, including a profit-based commission collection on the client’s online store. Here is how our WooCommerce developers accomplished this for the client and the customizations we implemented in the WoCommerce plugin.
Affiliate Plugin Customization for Enabling Profit-based Commission Collection
The client ran an advanced affiliate system on their WooCommerce store. As you know, an affiliate system enables the admin to manage efficiently and market products to relevant affiliates. The client wanted to use the Affiliate for WooCommerce plugin to facilitate an efficient affiliate system in their online store.
Store owners often use the Affiliate for WooCommerce plugin to implement unique affiliate programs for their businesses. It comes with all the essential features a store owner would need, including referral, sales, and commission tracking. WooCommerce store owners can make payouts and create commission plans using the advanced plugin.
Initially, the plugin only allowed WooCommerce store owners to give a percentage of the total cart value as a commission to affiliate marketers. However, this method was inefficient as it could sometimes affect the client’s profit. The client wanted to customize the WooCommerce plugin so that the commission is collected based on the client’s profit.
Our experts customized the WooCommerce affiliate plugin so that affiliate marketers or referrers get a fixed percentage of the profit as the commission. We accomplished this capability on the WooCommerce plugin with custom coding. Our experts tested the new functionality in the plugin multiple times and ensured it worked flawlessly with the client’s WooCommerce store.
Customized Affiliate Tagging System for WooCommerce Affiliate Plugin
The client’s primary requirement was to implement a profit-based commission for their affiliate programs. However, after discussing with our experts, the client understood that they could customize the plugin further for better business management. The custom tagging system is one of the significant customizations we made to the affiliate plugin besides the profit-based commission.
Our customized tagging system, built using the WooCommerce affiliate plugin, enables the client to manage affiliate commissions effectively. The Affiliate for WooCommerce plugin can add affiliate tags and a robust commission plan system. You can set affiliate commissions using specific conditions, such as applying commission to the first product in the cart or to particular products and product categories.
We implemented an advanced affiliate tagging system using the plugin that allows the client to group affiliates into different categories. For instance, the store owner can categorize their affiliates into groups, such as silver, gold, and platinum, and fix a commission for each group. As per the client’s request, we ensured the tag assignment used the relevant purchase value of each individual.
The client could use the customized affiliate tagging system we created to categorize their affiliates and assign specific commission percentages to them. Similarly, the client can use the affiliate tags to better communicate with them and streamline various other operations. Moreover, we can customize the plugin further to accommodate more features and capabilities.
Price Range Setup for Affiliate Classification
The customized affiliate tagging system is one of the significant customizations we made to the Affiliate for WooCommerce plugin. However, we continued. Sure, classifying affiliate partners can help you with many business operations, including setting custom commissions for each category.
Fortunately, at Virtina, we always chase perfection, no matter how elusive it may seem. Moreover, we encourage our clients to do the same so they always have the best functionalities and capabilities in their eCommerce store. Our strive for perfection pushes us to set up a price range system for more convenient Affiliate tagging or classification.
The Price range setup customization enables the client to provide the cart or order value for classifying the affiliates. As a result, the client can quickly assign relevant tags to the affiliate partners and group them as per their requirements. It provides a more holistic approach to managing affiliates and their commission more efficiently.
The customized affiliate tagging system incorporated into the WooCommerce plugin makes life significantly easier for the client. It takes all the unnecessary work away from the client and passes it on to the customized WooCommerce plugin we help build for the client. We implemented convenient automation to significantly minimize the effort in categorizing or creating affiliate groups.
Without the advanced customization Virtina implemented, assigning affiliate tags could take hours or even days. It is why the client wanted to implement automation capabilities to make it easier for them. Our leading WooCommerce experts quickly got the ball rolling and started to create an automatic affiliate tag assignment feature using the plugin.
The automatic affiliate tag assignment feature works with the abovementioned price range setup. Our customization lets the client set up the price or cart value range for assigning affiliate tags. The customized affiliate plugin detects the order or cart value and automatically gives relevant affiliate tags.
