We have launched the Affiliates Program app, unlocking a new partnership model between VTEX stores and associates who promote sales in exchange for commission. Anyone registered and approved by your store can become an affiliate.
For the Affiliates Program app, an affiliate is different from the standard definition of affiliate in VTEX. In the app’s context, an affiliate is anyone who associates with a VTEX store to promote sales while receiving a commission.
The Affiliates Program app creates a specific URL of your VTEX store for each of your affiliates, and every URL is targeted with a parameter that identifies the affiliate. When an affiliate shares their URL with clients, and they buy something through that link, the affiliate earns a commission over sales.
The app also provides a profile page and dashboard for the affiliates to keep track of orders and commissions associated with them, as can be seen in the image below:
After installing the app in your VTEX store, three new pages will be available in VTEX Admin, under Other > Affiliates:
- Affiliate Management
- Orders Management
- Commissions Management
If using the New VTEX Admin, the pages will be under Apps > Affiliates.
On these pages, you can manage everything related to your affiliates, making use of multiple filters and exporting data via email. They look like the example below:
