So in this case, I want both but these are details that you can also change later. Then select the commission type. Is it a percentage of a sale, a flat rate per item, or a flat rate per order? Maybe it’s a percentage of a sale. Which percentage you type here, maybe you’ll pay 15%.
  2. Commission Structures: You can also decide here on the commission. Maybe it’s a flat rate per item. If you click on that, you’ll decide on how much you’re going to pay.

Important Notes:

  • Blog Context: I’m assuming this is a guide for setting up an affiliate program with Shopify, as the transcript mentions it. A blog article would likely need an introduction before these sections, explaining what an affiliate program is and its benefits.
  • Language: I’ve tried to adjust the language to be more general and suitable for a blog format. You may need further editing to make it sound natural.

How to Customize Your Affiliate Program?

Setting Up Your Affiliate Form: it’s now fully set up so you notice now this is how your affiliate looks like so you can customize it now you can set up a refer-a-friend program here you can also tailor the form to match your branding here you can also promote your registration form down here you can also view your partners then.You can see your Affiliates this where you get the overview Affiliates the number of clicks the referrals and the amount so you see maybe affiliate one who had maybe 20 clicks and who made Five referrals and the amount that needs to be paid that is either in the last 7 days or in the last 30 days.
  2. Customizing Your Form: To customize this further you notice you can promote your registration form here and you can also use your custom domain here so let’s first customize this form you click on customize form and it will open the app promote affiliate form so here you now select the program so you can use the default one then you can choose the font here.
