We also let vendors un-assign an affiliate for their products using the ‘Delete’’ option.
Product Specific Rates
The referral rate and rate type used to calculate an affiliate’s commission amount on sales can be set on a per-product basis. To set a product specific rate and rate type, go to the Edit product screen for a specific product and enter the value you wish to use in the Affiliate Rate field and select the Affiliate Rate Type from the list in the AffiliateWP section:
Note : Using the “Disable referrals”, option vendors can exclude some product from creating any affiliate
Managing affiliate Payouts for vendor commission
Admin can choose to bear the affiliate amount by himself/ vendor will carry the affiliate cost via MultiVendorX >> Settings >> Payment :
For example, If a Product A is of 100 , Vendor commission is 70% and affiliate commission is 20
Now, if you set Vendor will bear the affiliate charge, then affiliate cost will be deducted from the vendor’s commission.
