Can you use multiple merchant administrators?
Multiple merchant administrators is an optional feature of Post Affiliate Pro, allowing you to have more users with merchant roles in the same affiliate program. Your merchants can be divided into different roles, with each of them holding specific permissions.
Let’s use an example to illustrate this further. If you wish to assign a unique role to a merchant, you can do so by creating the role and assigning it to the merchant. Instances of this would include creating the role of an accountant that would be allowed to pay out affiliates, or to have the ability to check for fraudulent activity but wouldn’t be able to interfere with the campaign’s settings or provisions.
This feature doesn’t mean that Post Affiliate Pro can be used the same way as Post Affiliate Network! In the affiliate network, the merchants have their own campaigns and banners, and they pay the owner of the network for using it. The role of multiple merchants is mainly administrative in nature and is usually performed by an employee of the company. If you are looking for affiliate network functionality, please visit our Post Affiliate Network web page.
Why should you allow multiple merchant administrators in your affiliate program?
Every company will inevitably need to expand at some point during its business journey. With that expansion, the company will have to start delegating tasks to others. By dividing the tasks between you and other employees, you can maximize your workflow and avoid stress from overwork.

Multi tier commissions (Multi level marketing – MLM)
Multi-tier commissions are a type of commission structure commonly used in affiliate marketing programs. Post Affiliate Pro offers a unique feature that allows you to set up up to 100 tier commissions. With multi-tier commissions, affiliates are rewarded not only for their own sales, but also for the sales made by their sub-affiliates. Commission structure can be configured separately for each level and marketers can either set up fixed rates for affiliates or choose to set up their commission by the percentage which is calculated from the actual total cost of the tracked sale. This can help grow an affiliate program, drive more sales, and increase brand visibility. You can set up multi-tier commissions in Post Affiliate Pro by assigning a commission to each affiliate in the affiliate tree based on how it is configured so that each affiliate benefits from the sales of their sub-affiliates. The commission rates are developed in tiers where the first tier gets the majority of the pot, and the percentage trickles up to the parent affiliate, then the grandparent, and so on.
Peel banners are a type of image banner with an attractive Flash animation embedded that can now use CSS3 instead.

Page peel banners are a specific type of peel banner, and resources on how to use them can be found in the knowledge base.
2-step verification adds an extra level of security to your Post Affiliate Pro account by requiring users to verify their identity using two different credentials.

By requiring more than two identity verification methods, 2-step verification makes it more difficult for hackers to obtain sensitive information.
