  • How to calculate revenue sharing with a partner/supplier

This doesn't actually need to use our affiliate system at all, but we're linking this article from our affiliate system help page because many sellers with this objective mistakenly try to use an affiliate program for that purpose.

The most practical way would be to use your E-junkie Transaction Log to determine sales/revenue for the product on a periodic basis (monthly/quarterly/etc.), so you can calculate the share of those revenues (or net profits, if you want to deduct your operating costs first) to pay to your partner/supplier. Every log view includes a summary of the total number of sales, units sold, and gross revenues for the selected date range and/or product, or you can download the log to a spreadsheet file and do your calculations in there. Note that you must click View Log to apply your custom date/product log search parameters before you can click Download Log to save that custom log view to a file.

If you want your partner/supplier to be notified by email every time the product sells, you can set up the product to use the Multiple Emails method of our custom/third-party Integration feature. If you are selling an ebook in PDF format and set up PDF Stamping to deter file sharing of your ebook; you can combine Multiple Emails notification with PDF Stamping by putting the parameters for both methods together after the o_plug.php? in your product's Product Notification URL field, like so:

https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/o_plug.php?&ej_stamp_pdf=true&pdf_allow_copy=y&pdf_allow_print=y&m_emails=user@example.com

If your partner also wishes to sell the product from their own site, you can simply copy your Add to Cart or Buy Now button code for that product from Seller Admin and send that to them, so they can paste the button into their site wherever they wish. If you need to distinguish which sales came from their button vs. yours, you can add a &custom=partner variable to their button URL, like so:

<a class="ec_ejc_thkbx" href="https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/gb.php?c=cart&i=XXXXXX&cl=YYYYYY&ejc=2&custom=partner" onclick="javascript:return EJEJC_lc(this);" target="ej_ejc"><img alt="Add to Cart" border="0" src="https://www.e-junkie.com/ej/ej_add_to_cart.gif" /></a>
