Affiliates WP e-Commerce Integration


Download the free Affiliates WP e-Commerce Integration for Affiliates, Affiliates Pro or Affiliates Enterprise.

Purchase a license for Affiliates Pro.


The following video is a demonstration of the Affiliates plugins using Affiliates Pro.

The video shows three main interactions for customers, admins and affiliates:

  • how a customer makes a purchase through an affiliate link
  • how an admin sees referrals and relates them to orders
  • and how an affiliate sees an overview of his performance

In addition to what is shown in the video, all features of the Affiliates Pro plugin are available.

Note: Although the video was recorded with Affiliates Pro for Jigoshop, it also applies to Affiliates Pro for WP e-Commerce.


After following the steps to install the Affiliates plugin and the integration plugin, please refer to the documentation available here: Affiliates Plugins Documentation.

    Can we have your plugins on our site [edited]

    • antonio March 1, 2018 at 8:05 am #

      Hi Avni,
      If you use WordPress and WP e-Commerce as shopping cart, you can use the pplugin and the integrations.
      Kind Regards,

    Hi Antonio or Kento,
    I plan to buy itthink affiliate entreprise plugin, but what booking management plugin for tour and travel website that integration with itthink affiliate entreprise?

    Would you please to response my question as soon as possible?
    Thank you!

    • antonio December 7, 2015 at 6:13 am #

      Hi Ghina,
      really there isn’t an integration with a concrete booking plugin. But if you use a booking plugin based in woocommerce it should work fine.
      Kind Regards,
      Antonio B.

    But we need all rest stuff like affiliate login, Signup and all rest procedure should be done via sub-domain which is

    can you please lets us know that is this something achievable by using your plugin and how?

    also we would like to know about customization for affiliate login, signup form and other static pages i mean look and feel and branding of logo?

    looking forward to hear from you.

    Many thanks in advance

    Can your plugin to import products from different affiliate stores and to insert them like in this site

    • kento January 26, 2015 at 11:27 am #


      No that’s not possible, the store and affiliate system need to be running on the same site where the affiliates link to.


      • Johnny Hook January 26, 2015 at 11:31 am #

        Do you have an idea what plugin can do this?

        • kento January 26, 2015 at 11:42 am #

          Not really, I don’t think that a plugin by itself would be a solution, you’re looking for something that constitutes a network and that would require a lot of customization (unless there is something out there that provides it OOTB).

    I am currently using Joomla with Virtumart and its affiliate program however we getting ready to update our site and use wordpress with woocommerce.

    Are the features pretty much the same on both affiliate programs? Also I sell subscriptions and sometime I might sell 2 subscriptions or more in 1 order is there a way to pay a commission to my affiliates per subscription instead of just on the order itself?

    • kento January 7, 2015 at 10:13 pm #


      I can’t tell whether the features are the same or similar as I’m not familiar with their system, but you can try out the free version and the integration for WP e-Commerce can be installed directly from your WordPress dashboard, too.

      Regarding the subscriptions, the commissions are per order. If you use WooCommerce, there are options to handle subscriptions and commissions on recurring payments but that requires Affiliates Pro and the advanced integration for WooCommerce.

    To start an affiliate platform on Woocommerce, which packages are needed?
    Is there just a one time charge for the plug-in or Are there any additional transaction fees?

  9. dan February 20, 2014 at 7:53 am #

    how can affiliates help my new site:

    I nedd to reach a very small group around the world?

    • antonio February 20, 2014 at 11:52 am #

      sorry, your web is based in Joomla, and Affiliates doesn’t works with Joomla, only with WordPress.

  10. Larry February 3, 2014 at 7:17 pm #

    Actually, I see you have some text on the individual product page…but not for the site wide settings…that’s where I got tripped up.

    • antonio February 4, 2014 at 7:00 am #

      Thanks for the suggestion

  11. Jerome February 2, 2014 at 8:34 am #

    I would like to know how the affiliate id is captured when coming from a site on which the referral has clicked on the affiliate link.
    My problem is the following:
    – referral clicks on link: http://www…?affiliate=5
    – hit is registered in wp admin
    – as soon as referral goes on with shopping, the id is lost
    – once a purchase is done, it is not anymore referred to the affiliate 5, but to a direct purchase.
    I would like to see where this information gets lost.
    Any hint?

    • antonio February 3, 2014 at 7:10 am #

      a cookie called “wp_affiliate” is created to trace the referral.
      Give us an url to have a look.

      • Larry February 3, 2014 at 7:15 pm #

        Yep. That was it. Thank you. Might I suggest some helper text next to the options fields?

        • antonio February 4, 2014 at 6:59 am #

          It seems a reply to @kento 😉
          Thanks for the suggestion.

      • Jerome February 4, 2014 at 4:17 am #

        Hi Antonio,

        Thanks for your quick answer.
        Ok, I can see that the Cookie is created and found the spot in wp-init.php.
        And that’s where it is recorded as a hit.
        But it is not used anymore after that.
        I tried to see if “class-affiliates-service.php” is called at checkout, but it doesn’t happen.
        Our page is
        Maybe we missed to activate something in the back-end…

        • antonio February 4, 2014 at 6:52 am #

          all seems works fine. You can send us dashboard admin access to support at itthinx dot com to have a look (please indicate this comment in the email).

          • Jerome February 6, 2014 at 3:01 am #

            Hi Antonio,
            Just to let you know that I have sent an email to the support team at itthinx dot com with subject #comment-317263 and giving access to the dashboard on our uat-server.
            Thanks again

            • antonio February 6, 2014 at 10:47 am #

              it seems there is a conflict with another plugin or theme.
              If you create a test site, you can try to deactivate all plugins except the necessary ones > test > enable one by one > test
              In this test site we can help you to find the conflict.


  12. Larry February 2, 2014 at 8:23 am #

    Hi guys. Good looking plugin so far but does this work with Woo Commerce subscriptions? I purchased the regular affiliate plugin AND the Woo Commerce integration tool. But my numbers have extra digits on them. For example, $50 referrals showing as $500 and sales figures in 6 digits after just a couple of months. (I wish). Does it just not work with subscription products?

    • kento February 3, 2014 at 12:17 pm #

      Hi Larry, this sounds rather like your referral rate is set incorrectly. The rate that you indicate under Affiliates > Settings should for example be 0.10 if you want to grant 10% commissions.

  13. Scott December 26, 2013 at 4:03 pm #

    Do you need to buy the Paypal Plugin as well to pay affiliates using paypal, or does this functionality already exist in Affiliates Pro for WP e-Commerce Plugin?

  14. papagroup July 25, 2013 at 6:20 pm #

    I have Affiliate pro. Can I set up the affiliates on a tier commission? I thought I read it in your articles but now I can’t find it.

    Also, why is everyone showing up as affiliates, even the buyers? We are just doing tests before launching. Using with WooCommerce.

    • antonio July 26, 2013 at 11:26 am #

      multi-tier system is available in Affiliates Enterprise version.
      Everyone is showing up as affiliates ?? Can you see buyers in Affiliates->Manager Affiliates?

      • papagroup July 26, 2013 at 12:31 pm #

        Yes we can. The buyers are in Affiliates->Manager or Manager->Affiliates. They even have link codes for referrals.

        I have Affiliate Pro. Can I get Affiliates Enterprise? I would like to have the Tier

        • antonio July 26, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

          Sure, you have a coupon to upgrade. Use: pro2enterprise ( 50% discount )

          • papagroup July 31, 2013 at 7:11 pm #

            Thank you for the coupon. Got it loaded. I have loaded 15 affiliates and linked them. I go to the first one (top) and can see they are entered correctly. Can see the different levels. I did a test client and purchased a product. The refferred affiliate got a commission but the 3 tiers above him did not show a earnings. I have read all your instructions and tried several settings but no luck in getting it to work.What am I doing wrong. My programmer can’t figure it out as well.

            • antonio August 1, 2013 at 8:01 am #

              you can send us admin dashboard access to support at itthinx dot com, and we’ll have a look to settings. (please indicate this comment link).

  15. John G July 3, 2013 at 11:06 pm #

    I am using WP eCommerce 3.8.11. If I purchase the Affiliates WP e-Commerce Integration Pack will this allow me to set rates per product? I know I can set a rate per affiliate but I want the rate based on each item not the total of the order.

    • kento July 5, 2013 at 1:41 pm #

      Not OOTB but there is Affiliates Product Rates Skeleton which can be used to derive a version for WP e-Commerce. Note that this requires a developer who is experienced with WP e-Commerce, unless you want to hire someone to do that, I would not recommend it (nor should you purchase Affiliates Pro unless you are prepared for the additional cost and work it involves).

  16. kento June 10, 2013 at 7:12 pm #

    Please update to the latest integration plugin version 1.2.0 which fixes a bug that affects installations with WP e-Commerce 1.8.10 and higher.

  17. Kenny March 19, 2013 at 4:05 am #

    Has the plugin been updated for Woo Commerce 2.0?

    • kento March 19, 2013 at 8:45 am #

      You’re posting this on a page for the WP e-Commerce integration … in any case, the WooCommerce integration is compatible with 2.x

  18. shakirah October 16, 2012 at 7:13 am #

    How can i set the two commission for different tier? for example, Person A is an affiliate. Person A sends Person B to the site. Person B becomes an affiliate too. Person B referes Person C who buys a product.

    In the normal scenerio Person B will receive a commission for referring the sale.

    In the tier affiliate model Person B still receives the commission but Person A also receives a small commission since Person A originally referred person B to this site.

    How to set the commission in the admin panel?

    • kento October 17, 2012 at 1:52 pm #

      The system doesn’t support multiple tiers, although a generic solution for that will be offered.

  19. YG October 13, 2012 at 5:53 pm #

    How can I moderate affiliates registration?
    Can I limit affiliates registration to logged-in subscribers only?

    • kento October 17, 2012 at 1:50 pm #

      Hi YG, there is this plugin that you might want to try New User Approve, I haven’t used it myself but if it allows you to moderate new users then it will allow you to check new affiliates and approve their user accounts before they can log in.

  20. YG October 11, 2012 at 12:17 pm #

    Some of the products in my site are priced at $0. Obviously those are the most popular ones. The purchase flow is the same regardless of the (0) price.
    How can I avoid purchases at $0 from creating referral notifications?
    How can I prevent those purchases from being regarded as referrals altogether?

    • kento October 11, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

      You can’t really avoid that, you could uncheck the Store direct referrals option and reduce the number of referrals created when no affiliate is creditable with the purchase though.

  21. YG October 11, 2012 at 10:14 am #

    How do I set the email address for admin notifications?
    the notification page says:
    “Notifications will be sent to the email address specified in Settings > General”
    But in Settings I only see “Default referral amount calculation”

    • kento October 11, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

      It’s referring to the Settings menu in WordPress, not the Settings menu item under Affiliates.

  22. YG October 11, 2012 at 10:11 am #

    Hi, this is what I get when I add Hebrew text into the notification emails:
    × ×¨×©×�×� ×�×¤× ×�×� ×�×�×�×�ת ×�ש×�תף: [affiliate_name] (ID [affiliate_id]) ×�[site_title]
    The subject like is OK though.
    Please help.
    Thanks, YG

    • kento October 11, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

      Will need to check that and get back on this.

      • yg October 31, 2012 at 12:24 pm #

        any news on that?

        • kento November 1, 2012 at 8:04 pm #

          Yes, just preparing the new release which includes a fix for that.

          • YG November 1, 2012 at 8:10 pm #


            • kento November 1, 2012 at 10:03 pm #

              Thank you 🙂 I’ve forwarded the current stable development version to you so you don’t have to wait for the new release.

  23. YG October 11, 2012 at 8:12 am #

    Hi’ I could not find any detailed documentation about “referral method” and I do not understand how it works. Is there any?
    Thanks. YG

  24. YG October 11, 2012 at 8:10 am #

    Hi, I’m using the following shortcode in the affiliation page:
    [affiliates_affiliate_profile show_name="" show_email="" show_attributes="paypal_email,referral.rate" edit_attributes="paypal_email" /]
    The result is:
    Why is the referral rate not shown?
    Thanks. YG

    • kento October 11, 2012 at 3:18 pm #

      It’s only shown if the affiliate has a specific rate assigned (not the general one).

  25. Mike July 23, 2012 at 8:22 am #

    I am not sure if we are on the same page. After someone registers, I want them to be re-directed to a page which will have a form embedded. This form page will also use https because I need to collect their tax id/social. I will have an email that goes out with a w-9 form attached.

    Is there a way to collect more data using your short code than just name and email?

    • kento July 23, 2012 at 12:07 pm #

      Oh I see, the shortcode is ok but the redirect won’t happen because of headers already having been sent. An update will add a Javascript redirect alternative for that case.

      The registration form fields are fixed but you can allow additional user fields using for example the Profile Builder plugin mentioned on the Useful Plugins page.

  26. Mike July 21, 2012 at 10:57 pm #

    I am trying to get my site to redirect to another url after some fills out a registration form.

    [affiliates_registration redirect="true" redirect_to="" terms_post_id="1912" /]

    What is wrong with my short code?

  27. Vern Brown March 10, 2012 at 10:50 pm #

    Please let me know when PayPal is available.

    • kento March 12, 2012 at 1:21 pm #

      Affiliates Pro for WP e-Commerce already supports PayPal.

      If you refer to the Affiliates Pro integration with PayPal, it will be announced when released, please subscribe to the newsletter or follow @itthinx.

  28. Salvatore Vigliotti March 4, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    will this also integrate with plugin. Such as Classified plugin that uses say paypal to process the payments. will it capture the process of the payment and process the affiliate amount.

    • kento March 4, 2012 at 5:21 pm #

      Affiliates Pro for PayPal is going to be released soon for that.

  29. kpmedia January 5, 2012 at 4:04 pm #

    Can I use your Affiliate Pro plugin with “WordPress Profit System” ecommerce plugin?

    Or your plugin just works with WP-Ecommerce and others.

    • kento January 6, 2012 at 8:15 pm #

      Thanks for the suggestion but currently there are no plans to support this system. There are other integrations with much more useful plugins being developed right now and those have top priority.

  30. kpmedia December 26, 2011 at 5:10 pm #

    when I reghit signup it shows this ERROR: Password require at least 6 characters.

    Can you please help?

    • kento December 28, 2011 at 12:22 pm #

      This is most certainly caused by another plugin that interferes. The Affiliates plugin’s registration form does not require a password to be entered. I recommend you revise your active plugins for one that causes this.
