This plugin lets you run your own affiliate campaign/program and allows you to reward (pay commission) your affiliates for referring sales.

The admin can configure banners, links and creatives which the affiliates can use on their site to drive traffic to your site. All the clicks, leads, sales etc are tracked by this plugin.
