Registration in the CRM  Registration in Affiliate  Expanding the network 

Two important tips upfront:

1. Each contact in your contact list can be defined as an affiliate - also as a non-registered affiliate. It is, however, recommendable to only assign affiliate status to contacts with access to your WBS (i.e. registered contacts). This is the only way in which these contacts can access their respective data, such as commissions, customer referrals, and referrals of new downline affiliates in case of multi-level network commission structures.

2. As soon as your input has been saved, the WBS will send the new affiliate a confirmation mail to his associated email address, using the predetermined email confirmation template for the respective network. If an incorrect network was mistakenly selected, the contact will be sent another confirmation mail once this error has been corrected. To avoid confusion, you should, in this case, send the new affiliate a personal notification to inform him about the error.
