Affiliate New Sign-Up And PayPal Email

Hello,

I had set-up the whole of Affiliate Enterprise plugin on mine client (Mr. ROB Davidson) website and all are working fine, except, I have few questions:

1. Whenever a new affiliate sign-up, s/he will be assigned the role as an Administrator, what can be done so that a new Affiliate or an existing Affiliate role will be pre-fixed as a subscriber.

2. At the time of sign-up, what if I want to add a field name PayPal Address – also, in case, if its not possible to have the filed at the place of sign-up, what other ways by which I can ask the Affiliate to add their paypal email address.

Please help with both the questions above.

Thanks

Karan Chopra

    Hi,

    1.- Affiliates use wordpress registration, you can setup this in Settings->General->”New User Default Role”

    2.- See Setting up an affiliate profile page – note that they don’t need to set a PayPal email address explicitly if it is the same as the one they used to register on the site, as that will be taken by default.

    In affiliates profile, you can show paypal email with:
    [affiliates_affiliate_profile show_attributes="paypal_email" edit_attributes="paypal_email"]

    cheers

    Hi there….

    I have Ready Ecommerce installed, and Affiliates Enterprise. When a referral purchases a product, the %commission is not assigned to the affiliate, despite the purchase being made through the affiliate URL, and the % levels set correctly? Any ideas?

    • antonio

      Hi,
      have you installed the Affiliates Ecommerce Integration ? that file is within the enterprise version.
      cheers

  • ferky

    Hi there…

    I cannot find the Ecommerce Integration, I have found some files relating to specific Ecommerce Plugins, but nothing about Ready Ecommerce??

    • antonio

      Hi,
      sorry, I think you are using WP Ecommerce.
      There isn’t an integration to Ready Ecommerce, therefore referrals are not recorded.
      cheers

  • ferky

    Hi there…

    I installed Ready ecommerce before we found Affiliates Enterprise, and was assured that it would integrate, is there a way of doing it?

    • antonio

      Hi,
      sure, you can use API for this purpose.
      You should look for hooks that have ecommerce, and use the api to create the referrals.
      cheers

  • ferky

    Hi there..

    Thats great, but it suggests that it wont work on Affiliates Enterprise, just pro? I have enterprise…

  • ferky

    Ok cool…

    But I am a little confused here. I was told that the software would integrate with any ecommerce, but now I find not Ready ecommerce.

    I have gone to the API page, but again I am told very little. I need a little more help here, all i need is for any purchase to apply the relevant commission to the affiliate, but now realise that I cannot….this is important, I do love the software, but its not working for my purpose atm after I have actually purchased it, can u help a little more?

    Thank you

    • Hi ferky, sure – do you need help or guidance on how to do the integration yourself or are you looking for a ready integration? In case you’re looking for the latter, I’ll be happy to take a look and provide a basic integration (their solution looks promising). Let me know in either case what you need.

      • ferky

        Hi there..

        Yes please! I am looking for integration to Ready Ecommerce. If u can do that for me, brilliant. I can then install as with any other ecommerce…..

        Please help!!!

  • ferky

    Hi There…

    Have you had any luck?

  • ferky

    Many thanks, will U post the link or will it just be in the download lists?

  • ferky

    Hi there…

    I have installed the software, set the new settings, but no commission is appearing in the results….?????

    • antonio

      Hi,
      you can send us login access to support at itthinx dot com, and we can take a look.
      cheers

  • ferky

    I have replied to the email, where do I send the login details, as I dont really want to post them here on a public forum!

  • ferky

    Hi there…

    I have just sent the login, let me know if u need anything else…

    Thank you

    • Thanks, got it. Works fine, see the referral for order #50 – this has been recorded automatically after visiting the affiliate’s link and placing the order.

  • ferky

    Thank you! Just tested it myself, it all seems to be fine and working!!!

    Thank you for the help, will get back to you if I need any more :)

  • ferky

    Hi there again, I have just bought ‘affiliates by username’ that says I can have the affiliate URL as http://www.mysite.com/affiliates/username , but it doesnt allow that? Any ideas?

    • antonio

      Hi,
      Are you using [affiliates_by_username] shortcode? For example: [affiliates_by_username][affiliates_url][/affiliates_by_username]
      cheers

      • ferky

        Yeah I can use the shortcode, however the URL still renders as http://www.mysite.com?affiliates=username, however the tutorial suggests we can replace the ? and = with /, to make a pretty URL, however when used, a 404 error not found comes up? Any ideas?

        • Can you give an example of how you’re using it? Note that if you use a pretty URL for that, it will only work with the base URL but not with links to certain pages.

          • ferky

            Hi there…

            Yeah I know the pretty URL only works with base URL. My normal affiliate link is as follows:

            http://voltzsupplements.com?distributor=11

            I am the admin, so I wanted to change it to:

            http://voltzsupplements.com/distributor/admin

            However it wont recognise that pretty URL, even though software tutorial suggests that it should….any ideas?

            • It looks like something’s in conflict with those URLs. Do you have any rewrite rules in place that might affect the link?

          • ferky

            Could it be the rewrite settings in wordpress itself??

          • ferky

            Here are the rewrite rules in the .htaccess…

            # BEGIN WordPress

            RewriteEngine On
            RewriteBase /
            RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
            RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
            RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
            RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

            # END WordPress

          • ferky

            Hi there…

            I have sent you an email, but I also tested the software on a simple test site that I have, with no other plugins, and I had the same problem. In fact even the pretty URLs types, with the affiliate number only, refused to work…

            I really need help here, is it possible there is an error in the plugin?

            • Certainly not an error in the plugin. This works fine unless there’s some conflict, which we’ll need to identify. Please post the results from the Rewrite Rules Inspector (these will be large, please use pastebin).

          • ferky

            Here are some rewrite rules from the software for URL:

            http://voltzsupplements.com/distributor/admin

            (.?.+?)(/[0-9]+)?/?$ index.php?pagename=$matches[1]&page=$matches[2] page
            [^/]+/([^/]+)/?$ index.php?attachment=$matches[1] post

            Does that help? I think I have found a possible conflict with another plugin too, based on a test site I use…

            • I don’t think these would interfere, which plugin have you identified that might cause a conflict? I’d like to try that out.

  • ferky

    Also is there a way for an affiliate to log in, then redirect to an affiliate registration form, in order to sign up another affiliate who then becomes a their referral? Or is it done simply via URL?
