Commission Manager

Commission Manager

Developed By Katamaze

Compatible with WHMCS v8.0

Who Is it for?

Anyone interested in affiliate marketing to boost business growth. Affiliates earn money by spreading the word about you!

  • Recurring, one-time and lifetime commissions based on products, TLD and addons
  • Affiliates compete with each other to unlock milestones that boost their income encouraging them to sell more
  • Data drives affiliate marketing. In Commission Manager statistics and details are one click away

The module awards commissions based on payments, signups and sales that can be set as fixed amount, percentage or both.

Attribution Models

Tracking conversions is an essential part of an affiliation software that's why in Commission Manager we included 3 of them!

  • First-Click based on Referral Links with cookies
  • Manual for sales and conversions made "offline"
  • Interactive where customers are asked to specify their account manager from a list

Retroactive pay is supported and the module has built-in functions that protects you from cross-affiliation techniques. @ https://katamaze.com/docs/commission-manager/40/attribution-models#Cross-Affiliation

Control Center

Commission Manager has key ingredients for the perfect admin interface to monitor and manage affiliates.

  • Add, remove, rearrange and export tables' columns
  • Perform bulk actions on multiple rows at a time
  • Automation to save time and money running your business

With Billing Extension the module can automatically issue credit notes for payouts to affiliates. Moreover on invoice view you can easily spot items on which have been awarded commissions. @ https://katamaze.com/whmcs/billing-extension

Affiliate-Centric Experience

Affiliates can get information, send withdrawal requests and view statistics without the need of your manual intervention.

  • All features accessibile from one page
  • GDPR-friendly. Restricting data requires seconds
  • Multi-currency support

Referral Links support click tracking. Affiliates can monitor how many times they've been selected by referenced customers as their sales representative.

Katamaze technology

Commission Manager includes a number of proprietary technologies that enhance the user experience for both the administrator and visitors.

  • SorTables for displaying data @ https://katamaze.com/docs/general/3/sortables
  • Multilingual content with HereLang @ https://katamaze.com/docs/general/2/herelang
  • Optimal data entry with MagicInput @ https://katamaze.com/docs/general/1/magicinput

I was looking forward to giving a glowing review on this extension... I really was.

After months of working together on the forums, outlining the specific functionality we needed, I was so excited to finally purchase Katamaze's CM & BX modules to solve my affiliate management issues (and make things finally GST compliant in Australia).

The problem is... it just doesn't work. To make matters worse, they refuse to offer any after sales support, respond to my tickets or actually help me get to the bottom of the issues at all.

Now, they do have a 'premium' support option of 299 euro PER MONTH - but I'm not paying more than the software licence fee just to get them to respond to tickets and acknowledge that what they sold me doesn't work in the first place.

There was so much potential, but it was all for naught. Such a bitter disappointment.

System does not work with WHMCS, throws errors and they do not reply at all to support tickets.

Buyer Beware I guess.

I agree with the last buyer who purchased this. I should have read the reviews but instead went right for the buy button as I was excited to see this module. But it certainly caused my modules setup area to crash as well getting the following message too:

Oops!
Something went wrong and we couldn't process your request.
Please go back to the previous page and try again.

Is anyone around at this company? What about WHMCS are they monitoring their developers? There are several links on the site that are also broken and after making the purchase the download link took me to the sales site instead of a file.

Now I'm wondering if the other buyer ever got a refund or just walked away from this with a loss. Will the developer ever get back to me ? maybe I should just ask for a refund now with bothering to get a response?

I'll try anyway cause I like the module and if they get back to me I'll edit this review with a higher rating.

Looks like an awesome plugin, however since I've purchased it over 2 weeks ago, I've not been able to use it as it shuts down access to all my modules and receive the following.

Oops!
Something went wrong and we couldn't process your request.
Please go back to the previous page and try again.

I've received no support from the developer via ticket or email. I just tagged them in a tweet hoping to get their attention.

Poor rating until I can get some support
