There needs to be a way to actually control individual commision rates on custom decorated products. Choosing one commision rate for a store only works if most of your prices are the same price. When it comes to custom products, the affiliate store owners would like a certain amount of commision for each of their products. This cannot be accomplished if we are made to give one blanket commision rate on the affiliate store.
The ability to export the list of customers and invoice numbers for each campaign to a csv file from within business hub. Enabling the data to be used in Excel.
Affiliate stores should be allowed to choose which products are offered based on those allowed thru the fufilment center. I would like to set up an affiliate store that sells just one brand in three styles.
The templates for the affiliate stores and for new deconetwork are dated. Deconetworks needs to get with the industry and update its templates, its bad branding for the company. Your site looks great, but what you offer others do not.
The templates should also be update and be able to show the individual campaigns with running totals. The software is behind the competition.
Currently webstores have a setup fee associated with them at check out. While I want to include the setup fee for our main website, I do not want to have a setup for webstores. Right now the setup fee is a global setting, I'd like to suggest having another option to remove this fee from affiliate stores.
Hey, we really want it to be possible for the account that owns an affiliate store to buy their own products at their wholesale price. We work with a growing number of brick and mortar businessees that want t-shirts. Many want the ability to order some shirts wholesale. Right now, they have to order them at full price, and then wait till the end of the month to get their money back. Not a very slick solution. Anyone else? Thanks!
It would be incredibly beneficial to have a means to report statistics via email or a webpage to the clients of an affiliate store.
Example: we do not give ownership to our clients webstores - they call us every few days and ask "how are we doing?"
This prompts me to login to each individual store and review the dashboard - create an email and report the information. This was not a big deal except now we are growing the number of stores and is quickly becoming an full day's work to report on every webstore.
What I propose:
Relavent information that would be amazing to view or receive:
Number of Orders - Total Sales - Number of Visitors
You should be able to pick between - day, week, 30 days, 60 days, etc
Perhaps a simple solution would be to create a free login for affiliate store for viewing dashboard only - all other functions disabled/locked out.
Just give the ability to view the dashboard information without the QUICK START section.
Many affiliates don't want to have a secondary website & certainly don't want to waste time looking after a site for their groups clothing requirements. This is especially true with short term fund raising ideas etc. or low volume clubs / societies.
As store owners we want traffic to our website - it's the king project! So we need a way to have affiliate pages within our main site rather than an unloved affiliate site tucked away somewhere. We want the traffic, We want the sell on opportunities great navigation can provide.
So lets have affiliate pages instead of or as well as affiliate stores.
** This suggestion has been around for about 3 years but appears to have became lost in the deco maze ...... **
Limit Access (possibly by Category Tabs) for an affiliate on their store. The idea would be to give an affiliate access to dashboard and order info, but turn off access to decorated products, settings, etc.. If this is something that is possible now, please let me know.
It would be great to be able to bulk delete decorated products and store designs from an affliate store.
It is extremely necessary that affiliates have the ability to choose their margin for each process. We offer embroidery, DTG, screen, sublimation, and wide format printing and it is necessary that an affiliate choose how much they want to markup each process. Currently it is applied across the board and this does not do an affiliate much good as a lot of their products become significantly overpriced. For example a custom keychain is $6 full color printed, whereas a hooded sweatshirt is $25 full color printed. Now the % markup would work, but a lot of affiliates like to apply a flat price, but it drastically skews the price. A $5 markup on the sweatshirt is ideal, but not for the keychain.
It would be nice if fulfillment centers had more control over stock designs. Currently there is no way to limit which stock design categories/folders to certain affiliates. We upload a lot of stock designs that are great for certain niches, but not for others. So it would be great if we can make some stock designs private / only available to certain affiliates / groups.
The ability for a campaign owner to re-run a campaign after it has ended. They may want to repeat a sucessful campaign or re-try marketing a campaign that did not quite reach its goal.
All without having to re-design and re-enter the details of the camaign, just restart and set new dates.
It would be nice if affiliates had the ability to bulk upload a zip file of designs like a fulfillment center can. Currently affiliates have to upload each design individually, but it would be nice if they could just upload a zip folder like fulfillment centers do in the stock designs settings.
It would also be nice if affiliates could bulk upload stock designs from the fulfillment center. Currently each design must be click individually, but it would be nice to have the option of adding an entire stock designs folder / category at once.
Its great that we can now limit the amount of printable and embroidery fonts as there were too many to choose from before. The problem is that the only way to limit the amount of fonts is done through CSS. Which means each affiliate store would have to copy and paste the custom CSS to limit the amount of fonts on the designer. This should be done from the fulfillment center so that all affiliate store/sites have the same font settings. Certain fonts don't print or sew well so it should be up to the fulfillment center as to what fonts are available for use.
I am glad that Deco finally implemented the ability to limit decoration processes at the store and hub level, but it needs to go a littler further and allow for exceptions to be made for certain stores or groups, just like you can for products.
Most affilaites are going to sell no minimum products and thus not need screen printing turned on. But there are a few affiliates who market screen printing as a service who still want / need access to the proccess.
So the availability to limit a decoration proccess should be done so on a Group and Store level to best fit the needs of fulfillment centers.
We have several hundred affiliate stores that have been steup by our customers. Currently affiliate stores can only be deleted 1 at a time. I would benefit greatly from being able to select which stores to delete and delete them all at once. For example, I would like to be able to delete all affiliate stores that have not generated any sales for over a year.
It would be great if we could assign open and close dates for affliate stores.
It would be very helpful if we could add decorated products to multiple categories. Right now you have to clone a product if you want it to be in 2 or more categories. This is not ideal especially if you are working with thousands of decorated products that need to appear in 2 or more categories.
I am an affiliate store owner so I don't have access to the business hub, only the store controls.
Recently one of my main opposition signed on to my email list so every time I sent a marketing email I was telling my opposition what I was doing and there was no way to delete them from my email list.
To successfully market as an affiliate I need control of this list, and not only because of the above scenario. I am sure there will come a time when one of my customers wants to be removed from this list and rather than spam them I would like to be able to comply.
Another point is, what if I was to set up a marketing campaign through a social media site such as Facebook where people were invited to leave their email to receive a newsletter. I have no way of manually adding them.
A little more control, please!
