Having an Affiliate Program for your product or service can increase your earnings many times.
The Main Reason People Are Moving Their Affiliates To Clickfunnels Backpack:
The backpack uses an Affiliate incentive we call “sticky cookies” to keep your affiliates happy, loyal, and continuously sending traffic your way!
For example, a customer purchases a product through your affiliate link, he/she earns a commission for that product, PLUS commission if the customer purchases additional products down the road anytime for life.
That customer’s information (and sales commission) will “stick” with the SAME affiliate, even if they didn’t use a special affiliate link to buy additional products.

I am going to show you How to Set Up the Clickfunnels Backpack Affiliate Program and Get it Ready for Your Affiliates in Less Than 15 minutes!
You first have to decide what percentage of each sale you want to offer your affiliates. The more you pay to your affiliates, the more likely you will be able to find good and loyal affiliates.
Usually, people pay affiliates anywhere from 30% up to 70% OR MORE OR LES of each sale depending on the product!
You can structure your commission plan as you wish.
How to Set It Up
Step (i) Create A “Commission Plan”
Clickfunnels Backpack makes it Super EASY to set whichever commission plan you want! In just a few clicks, your commission settings will be sett and saved, and ready for your affiliates to start promoting!
Inside your ClickFunnels Click BACKPACK and then, simply select the “Commission Plans” tab.
Then click on the “Add Commission Plan” button.
Step (ii) Customize Your “Commission Plan”
Give your new commission plan a NAME(i.e Your Product Name) (so you can easily locate it from your list if you have multiple plans), and then click the “Create Commission Plan” button.
You can create as many new plans as you like (especially if you have multiple products, or want to run different Affiliate specials or contests). If you create more than one commission plan, set whichever ones you want to run as ACTIVE.
You can easily switch back and forth between commission plans as per needs, depending on which specials, launch events, promotions or webinar you want to run.
Step (iii) Add Affiliate Types
Inside Backpack, you have the flexibility to add in many different TYPES of affiliates:
- Regular affiliates
- Super affiliates
- Launch affiliates
- JV Partners
- Friends & Family
(You get the idea)
You can add as many types of affiliates as you like.
It gives you the ability to categorize affiliate groups, and pay your affiliates different amounts.
For example, if you have affiliates that are really good and bring you a ton of new customers, you can put them under a separate affiliate type, and pay them a higher commission or vice versa as you wish.
Step (iv) Add Commission for Each Type of Affiliate
It’s EASY to set up customized commission plans for your different types of affiliates, such as regular, super or joint venture partners!
For every new affiliate type you create, simply enter in the designated commission amount that you want to pay out, you can add fixed amount or in percentage.
There’s no rocket science you need to do. No formulas that you need to figure out for affiliate commissions. It’s really simple.
Once your commission settings are saved for each affiliate type, Backpack tracks and handles ALL the math for the different commission levels, so you will never have to open a calculator!
Step (v) Create A Two-Tier Affiliate Program
How would you like your affiliates to recruit other people to promote your products?
Backpack allows you to have not just one, but TWO tiers of affiliate commissions!
Here’s how that works…
Tier #1 Let’s say your affiliate brings you a new customer, and you pay them 40% sales commission.
Tier #2 If that new customer promotes for you under their own affiliate link, and generates sales, the original affiliate can receive a Tier 2 commission as well (like an extra 5% or 10%!)
Not just the extra commission tier motivate your affiliates to encourage others to become an affiliate of your product or service…
…but the size of your affiliate team explodes exponentially and increase your traffic rapidly
To add your 2nd Affiliate Tier, all you need to do is select the “Add New Tier” button, and decide how much commission you want to pay out for the Tier 2 commission.
In just a few clicks, you instantly have commission plans for a 2-Tier Affiliate Program built and ready to track commissions for your affiliates!
Now you can add an Affiliate Program to the back of ANY ClickFunnels sales funnel or any funnel with just TWO simple pages!
The first page is your affiliate page (where your affiliates will go to login to create their affiliate accounts and login to your affiliate program)!
Let’s see how to create your Affiliate Page:
Step (i) From The Funnel Page, Click “Add New Step”
Step (ii) Select “Affiliates” And Choose “Affiliate Access” Page
Step (iii) Edit The Page With Information About Your Affiliate Program!
The second page is your affiliate center. This is the place where your affiliates will find tools that they can use to promote your products.
You can give them banner ads, sample emails they can use and more. They can also check their stats and see the sales they have made inside of this affiliate center.
Let’s show you how to create your affiliate center.
And that’s it, If you can pick a favorite Affiliate Page design template from a drop-down menu, you can create an Affiliate Program!
You don’t need a tech guru and burn thousands of dollars on them, it’s that simple with ClickFunnels just drag, drop and add. It just takes two more pages to your funnel and you have built affiliate program for your product.

ClickFunnels Backpack Makes SIMPLE For Your Affiliates To Promote Your Product!
The “Affiliate Area Page” acts as a central ‘Dashboard’ for your affiliates…
The place where your affiliates can access any helpful promotional materials that you want to provide for them:
Banners, swipe copy, testimonials, email templates, articles, links. Any tools or resources that can help them do a better job of promoting for you!
This page is SO helpful to me for 2 reasons:
