Customizable Affiliate Id in Affiliate Portal
I love the new affiliate portal but one thing I'd love to have is for the ability for my affiliates to be able to customize their affiliate link. Basically let's say I have an affiliate named Katie and Katie is in 2 of my 2 campaigns. For one campaign her affiliate id is Katie171 and in the other campaign It's Katie185. It would be great if we could customize the affiliate id for each campaign. This would work great with the universal affiliate link suggestion made here - https://highlevel.canny.io/sub-account-affiliate-manager/p/universal-affiliate-link By combining the universal affiliate link suggestion with this one Katie can potentially have all your affiliate ids be the same FirstNameLastName so that it's unique to her. This feature is already available in sites like FirstPromoter and I'd love to see it here too. I'm ready to cancel my FirstPromoter subscription I'm just missing these 2 features to make my affiliates lives easier.
Automated Affiliate Payouts
While manual payouts are FINE, once you experience automated payouts, you'll never go back ha. Definitely want to see the affiliate manager include automated payouts that don't require my manual permission. Especially when you get to the point where you have thousands of affiliates, manually checking everyone to get paid out is a huge hassle.
change sub-account names
Have the ability to change the name of a sub-account in case the business changes names
Ability to manually enter and track sales and apply those sales to an affiliate
Need the ability to add sales to the system manually for payments collected outside of HL and need to be able to assign those sales to an affiliate so they can be paid appropriately for manual sales.
Notify Affiliate on Product Sale
It makes sense that like any other existing affiliate platform... the affiliate should be able to get an email when someone purchases through their link. I KNOW the 'customer portal' shows this... but GHL is literally built on automation. There should be a way to automate an email saying, "Hey affiliate! John Smith purchased 'product X' using your link!"
Bulk attribute paid invoices to affiliate
In the Affiliate Manager where you attribute sales to an affiliate, there needs to be a way to search for and attribute sales that were made by paying invoices that include a specific custom_field (like their iam_id or something else). This way we wouldn't need to individually search for each contact and then the specific transaction and then attribute to the affiliate but could just search for the affiliate_id (or other custom field that was placed on the invoice) and simply check them from the list of search results and then bulk attribute them to the affiliate.
Different commission rates per user class
The ability to have different commission rates for the same product for different "classes" of users. A normal user vs a Mastermind user for instance. One pays a higher commission but on the same funnel/product.
Please add a feature where transactions can get attached to affiliates AFTER the sale, for example if customer uses wrong signup link.
Automated Affiliate Payouts via Paypal
Currently Affiliate Manager only integrates with Stripe. Most affiliates are individuals and don't use Stripe, so when automated payouts is developed, it should prioritize payouts via Paypal. Other popular options like Cash App, Venmo, etc. would be a people pleaser!
