  1. admin says:

    @Ande, The most recent affiliate (who refers the customer) will receive the affiliate commission. Thats how it works by default.

  2. Ande says:


    Is there a way to give commissions to the most Recent affiliate that drives traffic?

    For example, if we do a big promotion, and 30 affiliates mail for us, let’s say 1 customer
    is on 3 of those 30 affiliates’ email lists.

    I’d like to set my program up so the most recent affiliate gets the sale…

    Can I do that?



  3. admin says:

    @Keith, Yes there is a two tier system option that you can enable from the settings.

  4. keith says:

    Is their a Two Tier system where affiliates bring on other affiliates and make commission on their sales?

  5. Pascal says:

    I have been using the Affiliate plugin since the start. I wanted to thank you for keeping your plugin up to date and continuing development of the plugin. This plugin has allowed me to have a successful affiliate program on my site.


  6. admin says:

    @Mick, Yes there is an option to that in the plugin.

  7. Mick says:

    Hi, I already use WP eStore & PDF Stamper, and am considering Affiliate Platform — is there a setting to stop people from using their affiliate link for their own purchase?

  8. admin says:

    @Carlos, Yes you can do that and award commission manually from the admin interface of the plugin.

  9. Carlos Vazquez says:

    Hi Carlos, The following is true:

    It has to be 50% of first payment (setup fee) and 50% of subsequent payments.

    Kind Regards,

    In that case, can I set up the affiliate to 0% and manually award payments as needed?

  10. admin says:

    @Kelsea, There should be no conflict with that. We actually don’t have any plugin called “affiliate integration light” so you maybe using another plugin and confusing that with ours. You can check the plugin author value to confirm if the plugin you are using is ours or not.

  11. Kelsea says:

    Will Affiliate platform conflict with WooCommerce coupons? Because I am having an issue when affliates and affiliate integration light are enabled, I am unable to use the woocommerce coupon code feature. It disables/cancels it.

  12. admin says:

    @Li, Please read the 2nd integration method for PayPal (it uses IPN). I think that will work better given your custom PayPal button setup.

  13. Li says:

    The Affiliate Program seems right for us. Small problem – we are using our own custom paypal buttons which shouldn’t be an issue but we already have the button return page going back to a thank you page which is a .php page – we are using a script to prevent double downloads. Obviously we can’t have 2 return pages so could we just include the affiliate script that is on the thank you page and add it to our php file? I can’t see another solution.


  14. Korin Iverson says:

    @Davey, Yes you can export them to a CSV file.

  15. Davey says:

    Can I export the leads at are captured?

  16. admin says:

    @Ellison, Yes you can use our standard PayPal integration to integrate the simple membership plugin with our affiliate software.

  17. Ellison says:

    Hi! Good Day,

    Can i use this affiliate platform plugin even im using the simple membership plugin (

    Im happy to know and im willing to buy this affiliate platform.

  18. Korin Iverson says:

    @Pat, Yes there is an option that will auto send out an email to the Affiliate when you approve them.

  19. Pat says:

    If you use the affiliates need to be approved option in the Affiliate Platform. Can you auto send out an email when you approve them? Or do you manually need to send out the email after you approve them?

  20. admin says:

    @Pedro, You can use the following addon and exclude that subscription product so it doesn’t generate any commission:

  21. Pedro J says:

    Hi! We’re using WooCommerce Subscriptions and would like the sign up fee to be bypassed by the WP-Affiliate system (while the recurring fees are accounted for). Is this possible? We’re using the sign up fee as a deposit and can’t have that amount split to the affiliates.

    Thanks for your help.

  22. admin says:

    @James, yes you can do that.

  23. James says:

    Hi with WooCommerce is it possible to set individual commissions for certain products eg: widget one affiliate is paid 20% and widget two affiliate is paid 50 %

  24. admin says:

    @Brandon, Yes it is possible to award affiliates recurring commission if they refer a customer to a Subscription via eStore or WooCommerce subscription addon.

  25. Brandon says:

    Is it possible to award affiliates recurring commission if they refer a customer to a Subscription?

    If so,

    Is this possible with your wp e-store plugin?

    and, is it possible with WooCommerce + Subscriptions plugin?

    Thanks in advance,

  26. Korin Iverson says:

    @ Ruth, Yes we have MailPoet integration with the Affiliate.

  27. Ruth says:

    Do you have Mail Poet integration? I am looking for an Affiliate program that has this type of integration.

  28. admin says:

    @Andrea, You mean to offer a bonus amount when the user signs up? It is in the settings menu of this plugin.

  29. Andrea says:

    Hi where is it the bonus signup section?

  30. admin says:

    @Arien, Do you want your affiliates to be signed up to your mailpoel list when they become an affiliate?

  31. Arien says:


    I am using Mailpoet e-mailprogram. Can it be integrated with the Affiliate plugin?


  32. Korin Iverson says:

    @Yury, Yes there is a check-box in the Affiliate settings. If you check this option you (the site admin) will get an email each time a commission is awarded.

  33. Yury says:

    When an affiliate is awarded commission is there a notification email set to the admin?

  34. Korin Iverson says:

    @Avery, Yes you can pay your affiliates in Euro’s. You can pay them in any currency that is supported by the payment gateway you are using.

  35. Avery says:

    My purchases are made in Euro can I also pay my affiliates in Euro’s?

  36. Korin Iverson says:

    @Lizzy, Yes we do have integration with Gumroad. You can find all our integration options on our documentation page.

  37. Lizzy says:

    Do you happen to have Gumroad integration with the WP Affiliate?


  38. Korin Iverson says:

    @Andrew, You can set it in the Affiliate to either pay a once off commission or every time the recurring payment happens.

  39. Andrew says:

    When using the Affiliate and recurring subscriptions, will the affiliate be paid one time or on the recurring amount?

  40. Korin Iverson says:

    @TanTan, Yes you can manually pay your Affiliate and manually upgrade membership levels.

  41. Tantan says:

    I want to pay affiliate manually, is it possible?
    Also, can I adjust member from free member to paid member manually?

  42. Nolan says:

    Adding an Affiliate program to my site was a great thing. Using your plugins made it even better. It was quick to setup and understand. This has lead to a very successful Affiliate program on my site.

    Thanks a million,

  43. admin says:

    @3wendy, This plugin is for users who are selling products or services and want to run an affiliate program. If you are an affiliate who will be sending referrals then you don’t need it.

  44. 32wendy says:

    How can i use this plug-in if I am the site sending referrals off to other ecommerce websites?

  45. Nyroka says:

    Thanks Admin,

    I understand completely. Love this plugin. I will use it once my site is done. Thanks for your quick replies.

  46. admin says:

    @Nyroka, Lets say you are using a PayPal subscription button to charge recurring payment. In that case you only need to integrate this plugin with PayPal. We have an integration for that:

    This plugin will track the commission every time a recurring payment is charged and Thats it.

    You usually use a membership plugin to handle the membership side of things (for example: if you want to do advanced content protection for your content so certain content can be seen by some members and not others).

  47. Nyroka says:

    I am creating a website where members pay a monthly fee to join and get paid commission for each person they refer. Do i need a membership plugin or can I use this to what I want?

  48. admin says:

    @Nyroka, Yes you can but it really depends on which membership plugin you intend to use. We have integration with a few membership plugins. It also works well with our own membership plugin WP eMember.

  49. Nyroka says:

    Can I use this for membership sites and recurring bills?

  50. Korin Iverson says:

    @Mark, Yes the Affiliate has integration with Gravity Forms and the PayPal add-on. You can see these options here:

    Integration options 24-26.
