What is a Commission?
A commission determines how much affiliates are paid for promoting offers, referring affiliates, etc. You can set commissions on each offer using the "Edit Offer Details" action and scrolling to the "Commission Details" section. If you have Goals that you would like to add commissions to, those can be configured separately under the "Goal Details" section of the same page.
