Affiliates Permanent

This WordPress plugin is an extension to the Affiliates plugins and WooCommerce.

New customers (or new users) are assigned to the referring affiliate. The affiliate will be credited with a referral on every purchase made by the customer from thereon (requires WooCommerce). Assignments can be changed manually in user profiles.

Affiliates Permanent User Setting

Purchases made by existing customers who are not assigned to an affiliate will not credit any affiliate, even if the customer has visited an affiliate link after her or his initial purchase.

The normal affiliate referral process can be applied for purchases made by guests.


To obtain the plugin go here Affiliates Permanent.


See the plugin’s documentation pages Affiliates Permanent for more details.

Plugin Requirements

This extension requires one of the Affiliates plugins, Affiliates, Affiliates Pro or Affiliates Enterprise and WooCommerce.

    I would like to know if this will work with WooCommerce subscriptions to give affiliates commissions for each recurring payment that is automatically charged by WooCommerce? Or do the permanent customers have to visit and actively purchase something again?

    Also, is there a way to put a limit on the amount of time that a user is associated with an affiliate? For instance, if I am giving affiliates a % of each recurring payment via WooCommerce subscriptions, can I have the commissions applied for 1 year only, and then even if the customer is still on the subscription, the affiliate no longer receives the commission?

      Hi Colin, yes, the WooCommerce integration allows to do that. Both grant commissions on recurring payments and limit the time during which that happens.

        I assume that this is only possible with Affiliates Pro? I do not see the option using Affiliates with WooCommerce Integration Light.

          Yes that’s correct.

    How can I use this plugin’s functionality without WooCommerce?
    Now I use “add_referrals” method to record referral.

      Sorry, the plugin requires Woocommerce. But you have available the Affiliates API to create your own solution.
