Recently our site has started a new affiliate program. Basically it's a two tier program. Member signs up to be able to use referral link. Basically you can sign up for free but you have to pay for an upgrade to receive your commission for your referrals. The idea behind this was that it will help keep all members stay active paying members for everyone's benefit involved. Now the pay structure is simple. $30 for membership and affiliates receive 50% so that's $15. Also they would receive $5 for any member their referred members sign up. The question at hand is. Is this a good system or has it been done before in adult dating? Should we just allow all members to promote but can not access the full site without upgrading. But this just makes it your typical adult dating affiliate program. So many questions, with so little answer, any advice would be much appreciated.
