First of all, I'm not certian this is in the right forum. it can be moved if its not.

My company has recently set up an affiliate program thats tracked by an out side group so that our agents can be paid for the sales and referals they make.

As far as flexibility goes, most of the guys we sign up are our own agents and we already run their websites. We need to be able to set up their entire account without them recieving an automatic email. Our current program does not offer this.

We need to be able manualy edit who refered who. This also cant be done with our current system. once its set, its set for good.

We need a 3 tier system. Explanation: Say person A refers person B who becomes an affiliate and in turn refers person C in to our program who also becomes an affiliate. When a sale is made through C, A and B should each get a smal commission.
This is what our current solution has and others seem to lack.

The other problem with our current system is that it tracks clicks just fine and it usualy tracks referals, but it 'looses' sales. I believe I have my end set up properly but they have been little help in confirming this.

Do you guys have any suggestions?

[affiliateshop.com...] has 3-tier and should provide other features you are looking for.
Otherwise you could buy your own script and do it all in-house.
