Split payments

    Asked on February 20, 2012 at 11:49 PM

    Hi am looking to create a form to sign up for a product/service.

    I have created a landing page URL where I have created a business alliance/affilate program with similar but non competitive busiensses within my industry.


    My product is $119 and I would like for the payment to be split where $99 goes into my account and $20 goes in the other business/affilates account.


    Is this humanly possible?


    I usually use Paypal as my payal merchant, but i am willing to change this if someone else can offer this feature.


    Any advice.

    Sadly, this is not possible with JotForm. Our payment integration tools can only accept one payee account. I don't think there is a way to automatically split payments for the products you sell.

    You can probably just track your affiliates' sales then pay them accordingly.

    Would you recommend any program to track affilate sales?

    I am not really familiar with any affiliate tracking software. I am also not sure how one could work seamlessly with JotForm.

    However, I can think of a workaround using JotForm's built-in features.

    Insert a hidden box field (under Power Tools) on your form. Label it to something like "Affiliate ID".

    When you distribute the form link to your affiliates, you must append their affiliate ID or name to URL parameters so that the hidden field will be prepopulated.

    For example: http://www.jotform.com/form/20514237111?affiliateId=1774

    This way, you'll be able to track which affiliate has sent you a particular sale.

    You can also create a simple public report (can be password protected) so that your affiliates can track the sales themselves.

    For example: http://www.jotform.com/table/20514850132

    Basically, this is just a workaround and is not meant to replace a full-scale affiliate software. If you need specifics on how to use this for your form, please do not hesitate to ask.

    That is exactly what I am after, Can you tell me how to create a password protected report like your example.

    Thanks very much!

    You can add the report from My Forms page, just select your form and click on the Reports icon. Then, select a HTML Table Listing, and use the Password Protection option.
