The default bonus commission is the bonus paid by you to an affiliate based on the referred affiliate's commission.
This gives the ability to set a bonus percentage and time frame for which affiliate referral bonuses will be calculated. Stats for affiliates (on the Affiliate Commission report) after this configured date/time frame will not be included on the commission report under the Referral Bonus column. A custom bonus and time frame can be configured at the affiliate account level as well. Once the referred affiliate application is approved, LinkTrust will calculate the end date of referral bonuses for the corresponding up-line affiliate and this date will appear on that affiliate's referrals page for the referral that was approved. An end date is not required, just an option. The bonus is derived by multiplying the bonus percentage with the commissions of the referral. This amount is added to the up-line affiliate on the Affiliate Commission report.
For example, John referred Cindy to your network using his referral link. Cindy generated $1,000 in commissions last month. If the bonus commission is set to 5%, John will get $50 ($1,000 x .05) added to his commissions for the month. This $50 bonus is not taken from Cindy's commissions, but is simply added to the affiliate's account as a bonus. Commission bonuses can be viewed by affiliates in the Affiliate Center.
The referral link John used is http://(Your_Affiliate_Center_URL)/Welcome/LogInAndSignUp.aspx?SAFID=(John's Affiliate ID). This link is available within the affiliate's details and can also be made available within the Affiliate Center.

Then select My Account on the top menu. Select Manage Sub-Affiliate Logins in the Login section of the page. The affiliate can now give the login information to their sub-affiliate.
