I'm trying to find a simple affiliate solution for Ubercart for Drupal 6.x.
The uc_affiliate2 module looks like it is the most commonly used, but has some long-standing bugs and overall looks like it might be more complex than what I need.
I really only need the following workflow:
- Customer clicks link
- Customer is directed to landing page
- Customer makes purchase
- Purchase is tracked against affiliate
- Affiliate report shows how many purchases made per affiliate
Basically, I'm thinking the landing page could use a query string to identify the affiliate id, and then a session cookie could be set to track purchases for the duration of the customer's session. The affiliate report would ideally be made using Views, but wouldn't have to be.
I don't need any complex calculations of commissions or a complex downline - it's just going to be a one level affiliate program, by client request. I'd like to make it simple so they can administer it.
I could code this myself, but I figure it's going to be more stable and well-tested if it is something contributed by the community.
If you all think uc_affiliate2 is the best option, let me know. Perhaps you can direct me to some documentation; I wasn't able to find any yet, and I'd prefer not to have to write my own for the client.
