Limit affiliate commissions to first order only
WHMCS developers and community,
I think it would be a great feature to allow us to limit affiliate commission payment of a single customer to their first order only. This would prevent the same customer placing a number of orders for all of which we would need to pay affiliate commission. Affiliate programs are mainly intended to help companies acquire customers. As the customer is already acquired on their first order, we do not believe that subsequent orders by the same customer should attract commission for the affiliate.
Of course, the above can appeal to some, while others might be offended (the affiliates, in particular), but we believe that us, as service providers, should at least have a choice on how to run our business, and the feature I explained above would definitely be useful.
Please let me know your thoughts.
