Tracking by SKU is a versatile tracking method which allows you to set specific rules for tracking particular products such as allowing or disabling certain products, paying royalties to your affiliates, and setting per product commissions. It is an addition to the other tracking methods and cannot be used on its own.
These are the main settings for SKU tracking (they are located in Settings > Tracking > "SKU settings"):
- Allow or disable commission for selected SKU only – You can choose to allow or disable commissions for specific products. List the products in the corresponding field, separated by commas. If you use only the “Allowed SKU” field, all the other SKUs will be disabled and vice versa.
- Set different commission for specific SKU – Use this option to set a specific commission for particular products. You can enter multiple SKUs per row, separated by commas.
- Associate SKU with affiliates – If you need to pay an affiliate for each sale of an item, regardless whether it is referred or not, you can use this option. It can be especially useful to calculate royalties for the designers of the products or the copyright holders, for example. You can enter multiple SKUs and IDs in each row, separated by commas.
