    Affiliates script

    I'm not really sure if this is the correct forum to post this in, or not.

    However, I'm looking for an affiliates script. I want to give users like $5 for every referral made that signs up. Anyone know of a script that can do this?

    Thanks in advance

    I need something like this also. www-hosting.net seems to have a good one. Maybe Gary can shed some light on this.

    Hey guys!

    I'm actually writing one right now using php and mysql!!! I will release it for free to anyone who wants it when it is done, so let me know what features you want.

    The following is done: The script will set a cookie in the visitor's browser for 30 days and forward the user to your home page. Then you can include a php file at the end of your order script which will check the browser to see if there is a cookie, and record the referral for the appropriate affiliate.

    Currently working on: Affiliate interface will allow affiliate to log in and view the date and time of each referral that they generated, along with the total number of visitors sent (number of times they're link was clicked). They will be able to view their outstanding balance (what is currently owed to them). They will be able to view payments that have been sent, and the date they were sent.

    The affiliate owner (ie... you! ) will be able to view summary statistics for all affiliates. You will (hopefully) be able to view each domain that was referred by each client. You will be able to enter checks that have been sent to affiliates.

    I am hoping to make this THE affiliate script that everyone uses, so would appreciate any input that you may have into the project!

    ETA: approx. 2 weeks

    Note: This script will NOT be commercial, and I am hoping to ultimately release it as open source software.

    I would suggest you take a look at PHP-Affiliate

    Its a basic script but can be used as a base paltform to develop it into a very powerful program.

    I adapted this script to be used with osCommerce and while basic it did the job.

    Well, there was not much interest in the script, and we started using modernbill which has affiliate stuff builtin, so we decided not to create the script. Sorry!

    HeeHee...I had the same happen to me today while doing a website review on Webmasterforum. The Organic? php Affiliate site threw popups at me that fast that even when I was typing up my review the exit popups were still streaming in.

    When will some guys learn?

    It's probably a good product but popups still =

    I have a copy of PHP Affiliate v1.0 on me...

    If anyone needs a copy, seeing as the official site isnt letting anyone download it, PM me and i will email it to you.

    I've used it on my site and it does the trick. I had to do a few mods to it to tailor it to my tastes, but it works.

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm the author of PHP Affiliate (one of the first PHP based affiliate scripts).

    I apologise for the pop-up ads (they annoy me aswell), they were simple banners at first although the ad network got greedy. The current banners will be removed sometime this week hopefully.

    PHP Affiliate pro should be released shortly, it will be licensed software (around $15) and will be alot more advanced.

    I'll keep you posted on the release date, and remember to upgrade to version 1.2 of PHP Affiliate until then (free security updates).


    Thanks,

    Rob

    Hi DangerMouse,

    Try signing up using a different email address, some mail servers reject the emails sent out by the PHP Script. There are thousands of registered users already, so the emails deffinitley go out OK.


    Thanks,

    Rob

    I had my refferal script custom coded by Dan of PHPArena.net.

    what it does:

    www.hostindustry.net?rid=blahblah

    The refferer's name, in this case "blahblah" is set with a session ID that is carried all throughout the site. when they signup, it's automatically added into the reffered by field, or it can be hidden.

    if you want some more info on this script, contact Dan at [email protected] and let him know Josh sent you

    DPI, how much did you pay for the custom coded script? I'm looking for a script that does just that.

    What incentive are you looking to offer?

    HostingBig: Pay-per-click will be offered in PHP Affiliate PRO when it is released (hopefully by the end of the week). Alternativley in PHP Affiliate, just put both bits of PHP on the one page. The clickthrough recording script, then the order recognition script underneath

    Rob, with PHP Affiliate PRO will I be able to choose ONLY the pay-per-click option, or must have both per-sale and per-click? I mean I wish the affiliate to be able to sign up only for pay-per-click... so that to see on his panel clicks only.

    Thank you.

    You will be able to choose one, some or all of the following:

    Pay-per-lead
    Pay-per-sale
    Pay-per-click

    Payment can be a fixed amount or a percentage.

    So yes, you can have pay per click only.

    For those of you using PHP Affiliate, how does it work with PayPal and 2checkout. How difficult is it to integrate?

    Was about to purchase the Pro and noticed 2 things, its almost $70 USD, and you dont get the source code to make alterations to fit your needs.

    Little pricy and cant alter it. I only kept reading the thread because you said about $15.00. Danm.

    Hi,

    The software is closed source as you do not really need to add anything to it. The headers and footers are open source so that you can incorporate your site design into it and any features that you need and other users may need can be included in the next update.

    As regards to the price, we spent many thousands on creating this script, the price of 39.99 is very low for what you are getting.

    Rob, does the pro version still require a php include placed on our index page. Don't know what Mr Google is going to think about switching from .htm to .php.....
