An affiliate program should definitely be implemented.  I think this is already in the roadmap, but there is no detail.

I’d like to see great affiliate tracking stats, a dedicated affiliate logon, and affiliate tools where one would be able to generate links, images, etc. Maybe even affiliate pricing scheme.

My thoughts are a bit scattered right now, but there’s got to be someone out there that has an idea of what I’m talking about.  Speak up you. I want to hear what you think.

I always liked the idea of the referral code system rather than cookie based tracking. Then give the referee an incentive to take action (join, buy, etc) by attaching a promotion to the referral code. Then the referee would surely enter it (at least I’d hope so). Because there are no dependencies on cookies and such, the referrer should surely get credited grin

it would be hard to find a network and an advertiser without cookie lifetime.

i’d like to see a simple ability to attach a referrer code to customer profiles and a spot to enter the referrer code at checkout.  I would like to assign each order shipped a unique code that the buyer can pass on to friends.  the friend wouldn’t necessarily get a discount by putting in the code, but they would help out the original buyer get get ‘points’
is there such a system already?  am i missing something?  i don’t really need a complicated affiliate program, and with limited abilities, i would like to keep things simple..
regards

I don’t think a built in affiliate system is coming any time soon. I’ve just written a turn key integration with Post Affiliate Pro that should cover this need for the foreseeable future. You can get it via Magento Connect, or via direct download at the link below.

Details on Post Affiliate Pro and the Affiliate Module

Affiliate Module on Magento Connect

Enjoy!

I would also want to look for affiliate for my tech blog, http://www.gadgetsbing.com, which I update and write diligently, but I find that it is still hard to get it around. Is there any effective way to make it?

Hi,

I am looking to built a Magento based product comparison website using affiliate network feeds, Where users will be redirected to merchant’s website rather going to shopping cart. Similar thing I found for Drupal, but I want it for Magento.

Help any one…

Regards
Sushant Srivastava
