    I'm launching a new website next week for the UK market, and I am trying to work out the details for the affiliate program.

    The software I am using is self hosted and supports a flat £/per sale or a %/sale commision level or both, with the ability to modify commision on an individual basis. It also has the ability to support lifetime commisions.

    Now my dilemma is that if I offer a lifetime commision of 10% I will lose the affiliates out to make some good money quick. But if I do a £2+20% commision per order it cuts out those looking for recurring income.

    I value the opinions of people here, so would love to hear your comments/views.
