Creating Affiliate Partners

To create an affiliate partner:
  1. Select the channel from the context selection box, then select Marketing | Affiliate Partners.
    This displays a list of all affiliate partners.
  2. Click New.
    The details view for the new affiliate partner is displayed.
  3. Specify general information for the affiliate partner.
    Specify a name, a unique ID, and a descriptive text for the affiliate partner.
  4. Click Apply.
    When you create the new affiliate partner, the store entry URL specifically for the affiliate partner becomes available.

    This generates and displays the store entry URL specifically for the new affiliate partner. Customers that enter your site via this URL are allocated to the respective customer segment and can be handled accordingly. Distribute this URL to the affiliate partner site.

    You can now manage contact information for the partner, view access statistics, and define special programs conducted by the affiliate partner.
