Hi, I have a business that sells room decor like posters predominantly to the college student market. I have been trying to come up with a rep system that would allow me to have students at college campuses post fliers about my online store at their campuses. Here's how it would work:
First I hire a "head rep" from each school I want a presence at. He is free to hire other reps to work under him, and he specifies their "cuts" out of his 10% portion. I add a "How did you hear about our site?" drop-down select input at the checkout of my site. One of the options would be "Flyer". Every time a purchase is made with the Flyer option selected, I would check to which city it is being shipped to, and the head rep closest to the shipping address gets the credit for the sale and 10% of the order's total. He is responsible for the cost of all materials himself.
This system isn't perfect, but VERY easy to implement. What do you think?
