Company history[edit]

Commission Factory was founded in 2011[1] by its current Managing Directors, Zane McIntyre, Mario Johnston and David Hayman. The initial launch of the Commission Factory platform and Affiliate tracking software on July 15, 2011 was regarded as Version 1.0. On October 8, 2012 Commission Factory launched version 2.0[2] and the first major upgrade to their Affiliate network since the initial launch. To date Commission Factory has over 600 online retailers as part of their network that range from small, mid to large merchants and state they are one of the largest Affiliate network's in the southern hemisphere with 55% market-share.[3]

During the lifecycle of their first software version and the launch of the second, Commission Factory's office was located within the Sunshine Coast Innovation Centre, a Business incubator reserved for small business and innovative startups. Due to the company's self-funded and minimal initial startup capital[4] the Innovation Centre offered a space in which the Directors were able to grow the business with the least amount of overheads possible.

In February 2013 they relocated to their current office in Maroochydore to allow for further expansion.[5]

In March 2016 the company and all staff were relocated from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and interstate to a new head office in Sydney, New South Wales.


Commission Factory is a privately held Australian Proprietary Company, Limited By Shares since March 9, 2011.[6]
