Has anyone created a way to make an affiliate program yet?
Ugh, I sound like a broken record, I know, but.....has anyone (dev or user) managed to modify this in any way to create an affiliate program (people buy ads, refer gets commission)?
It was my absolute #1 feature request since last year and I have a project that simply can't wait anymore. It needs an affiliate program component and I was just wondering if anyone has hacked together something that works?
My other option is OIO Publisher, which sells ads (banners, posts, text ads) and has a nice affiliate program module. It handles that fine, but I like the theme of Classipress, layout and ad placement features. I just wish that someone could figure out a way to make it so that an affiliate program (either in-house or cobbled together with a third-party solution) would work. I can't give Classipress a five-star rating for this reason. Otherwise, it's a nice little plugin/theme...
Affiliate program, coupon codes (to give people discounts) and a flat-fee membership option to post a certain number of ads within a certain amount of time. If these three changes would be implemented, I'd promote the heck out of this thing and bring in a ton of new customers, but as it stands, it has so many holes that a professional (power-user) would want to have at a bare minimum.
Any ETA on an affiliate program mod? Begging here....
