Consolidated Diversified Hardhat Construction
This is the descriptive name of the affiliate.
This field lists the campaigns that the affiliate participates and enables campaign features and tracks traffic from advertising campaigns. The foundation catalog implements a coupon campaign in the affiliate_receptor component. If you want to add campaigns, you will also need to develop the appropriate logic within the affiliate_receptor component and pages that use it.
This is the discount offered customers from the affiliate participating in the coupon campaign.
Note -- This is implemented in the affiliate_receptor component as a flat discount amount. If you wanted a percentage discount instead, you would modify the [discount] tag in catalog_root/templates/components/affiliate_receptor (see the [discount] tag for more detail).
This is the date when the affiliate signed with you.
The value in this field is used to direct visitors coming from the Affiliate to your home page or a page you have designed specifically for visitors from that Affiliate's site. Note that this should not be the URL of the Affiliate's home site.
The value in this field is used to specify the amount of time a customer has to place an order to still give the Affiliate credit for it. If the customer goes over this amount of time, the Affiliate doesn't get credit for the customer visit. The timeout delay is measured in seconds, with the value of 0 (zero) disabling it. It is recommended that you use a value in the thousands to make sure the customer has enough time to shop.
This is a boolean value indicating whether the affiliate is active.
Password for affiliate login (see catalog_root//pages/affiliate/login.html). Note that the password is stored in plaintext by default.
