Configure Affiliate Settings

by Daniel on July 21, 2010

One of the most effective and fastest ways to build a business is to recruit affiliates to promote for you. If you can motivate affiliates then you’ll find an almost endless stream of high converting traffic (especially when the affiliates are considered a trusted source to their list).

In this post I walk you through the affiliate settings within your membership website. But instead of focusing on the technical details, I really show you how to use the settings available to MOTIVATE your affiliates and ensure that they get their commissions.

Remember that motivating affiliates is the key. Pay close attention to see the decision making process I use for each setting.

I just made an addition to MemberWing-X – added affiliate integration with ECWID online shopping cart and store (
ECWID is hosted product catalog that gives you embedded widget that becomes full blown online store whenever you embed it.
So anyone who owns MemberWing and runs ECWID store can track affiliate sales of ECWID products as well.
Here’s more info:

Maybe this is covered in a later video, but what are the rules for paying affiliates in terms of income tax reporting? Do I need to have an affiliate send me a 1099 before paying them a commission?

Todd, the details about accounting are beyond what I help you with. These will also change by country and region. I suggest you ask an accountant about that.
