Some advertisers offer multi-tier programs that distribute commission into a hierarchical referral network of sign-ups and sub-partners. In practical terms, publisher "A" signs up to the program with an advertiser and gets rewarded for the agreed activity conducted by a referred visitor. If publisher "A" attracts publishers "B" and "C" to sign up for the same program using his sign-up code, all future activities performed by publishers "B" and "C" will result in additional commission (at a lower rate) for publisher "A".

In 1994, Tobin launched a beta version of PC Flowers & Gifts on the Internet in cooperation with IBM, who owned half of Prodigy.[10] By 1995 PC Flowers & Gifts had launched a commercial version of the website and had 2,600 affiliate marketing partners on the World Wide Web. Tobin applied for a patent on tracking and affiliate marketing on January 22, 1996, and was issued U.S. Patent number 6,141,666 on Oct 31, 2000. Tobin also received Japanese Patent number 4021941 on Oct 5, 2007, and U.S. Patent number 7,505,913 on Mar 17, 2009, for affiliate marketing and tracking.[11] In July 1998 PC Flowers and Gifts merged with Fingerhut and Federated Department Stores.[12]
Si adotta quando l’obiettivo del cliente è generare un contatto con conversion rate alti e in brevi periodi. Publisher e network sono perciò stimolati a dare maggior visibilità al programma dalla doppia commissione. Il modello di share della commissione fra publisher e network non cambia (30% / 70%). Criticità: si tratta di modelli di business sempre in evoluzione, è verosimile che anche i modelli di remunerazione cambino in poco tempo (riduzione delle commissioni, eliminazione della parte CPS).

Iniziò tutto molti anni fa. A dire il vero non ricordo neanche la data esatta. Io e mio fratello ai tempi avevamo acquistato qualche pagina facebook che utilizzavamo per portare traffico ad un nostro blog che trattava tematiche gossip, e che monetizzavamo con circuiti a cpc come google adsense (ai tempi non sapevo di essere già un affiliato e di utilizzare uno dei programmi di affiliazione per blog più famoso al mondo).
In February 2000, Amazon announced that it had been granted a patent[18] on components of an affiliate program. The patent application was submitted in June 1997, which predates most affiliate programs, but not PC Flowers & Gifts.com (October 1994), AutoWeb.com (October 1995), Kbkids.com/BrainPlay.com (January 1996), EPage (April 1996), and several others.[13]
