Infusionsoft Affiliate Module Overall Grade: C-
The big problem with Infusionsoft’s Affiliate Module is that it relies on the Shopping Cart! And, as we already discussed, the shopping cart is a very big weakness of Infusionsoft.
Credit for an affiliate sale is given when a sale is completed. But the sale has to go through the shopping cart, so you have to use the shopping cart for the Affiliate functions to work.
For most of my clients, I have not been able to use the shopping cart, so I have not had the need to do a deep dive into the Affiliate functions. If the shopping cart is suitable for your business, I would give the Affiliate module a much higher grade — At least a B+.
- It supports multiple Affiliate levels
- Affiliates can login and setup their marketing programs, and you can create marketing resources for them.
- You can vary the Affiliate payouts by product and setup different Affiliate programs.
Maybe Infusionsoft will fix their shopping cart, and the Affiliate module will become useful for many more clients!
