    Trying to figure this out- but don't think it can currently be done.

    I want to pay affiliates for the first time product A is purchased.
    Customers can buy product A multiple times, but I'd only like to give a commission the 1st time the product is purchased.

    I don't see this being doable in the rule settings.
    You can do 1st free payment, or on trial but not recurring.

    Hello David,

    aMember does not allow such set up by default. It require some customization (new affiliate commission rule implementation).

    Actually I just found way how it can be done in aMember be default.

    1. you create two products with same name.
    2. add both products to same product category
    3. protect content based on product category
    4. set 'Product Availability' for both product so
    First Product was available only once for user and second product was available
    only in case user already has active/expired subscription to first product.
    5. set-up affiliate commission rule with 'by product' criteria and choose second product.
    Set commission to 0 for this rule.

    Thanks Caeser.
    Decided against using this as i would have too many people creating new accounts to take advantage of the 1st time offer. Unless you can verify the identity of the new signup, too risky.
