IP.Nexus 1.5 Dev Update: Referrals System

IP.Nexus has for a long time included a referrals system, allowing your customers to refer their friends to your community and subsequently earn commission on any purchases they make in IP.Nexus.

The problem with this set up though is that you might not want referrers to continue earning commission forever, or you might want to specify different commission amounts depending on what the referring user is purchasing.

In IP.Nexus 1.5 we're adding much better control over the system - you can now create custom rules which control the commission amount which will be paid out to referrers. Nexus will loop through the rules you set up and give the highest commission amount out of the rules that match.
You can base your rules on:

  • The number of purchases that the referring user has made (as a number, or as a money amount)
  • The group that the referring user is in
  • The number of purchases that the user making the purchase has made (as a number, or as a money amount)
  • The group that the referring user making the purchase is in
  • The packages being purchased
  • The amount of the transaction

You can then specify a commission amount to give as a percentage, and optionally a hard limit on the maximum amount of commission that can be given.

Here you can see I've set up a rule which will give the referrer 50% commission on the first purchase that members they refer make, provided the purchase is at least $10:

We've also made some improvements on the front-end. Firstly, users can specify any URL to use as the URL the people they refer are directed to.
In addition, users will be able to see the commission rules that apply to them:

If however, you don't want users to be able to see details of the commission rules, you can replace the content of that popup with your own custom message, or remove it all together.

Just like before, you can also create banners and upload them in the Admin CP, which will provide users code for using your banners on that page:

And you can of course keep track of who referred whom on the customer pages and customer history page:
