Using promotions vs affiliates

Recommended Posts

Hoping someone in the community can help me.

I'm fairly new to WHMCS and trying to figure out how to give different people rebates for helping to sell our services. Currently, I've used the "promotions" option and have created a zero discount promotion, but with a code so I can track the sales against that code. Unfortunately, when clients use the voucher code, it then comes back with "0% discount applied", which doesn't look professional. I also use promotional codes for discounts when working with schools, etc.

Any input on how I can do this better? In short, I have different people driving sales and I would like to track that so I can pay them a % of the sales amount on a monthly basis. Hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance for any help.

People typically use the affiliates program to track commissions, as that is what it is designed for. Although using promo codes with an attached discount is also used by some web hosts to track affiliates as well.

I haven't heard of anyone using promo codes without a discount through. 

You could modify the template or language files so that it no longer says "0% discount applied" but I think it would be better if you used the affiliated program feature or used promo codes that have a discount attached to them.
