    Hi, I want to set my affiliates commission to 10% bit I can not get it to work. I’ve tried .1 but i only gives them 1c

    • Kento October 17, 2017 at 2:04 pm #

      Hi Lydia,

      To grant 10% it would be correct to input .1 – the commission amount is calculated by multiplying the net order amount by the commission rate. What’s the price of the product and net order amount where you see this 1c commission?

      Cheers

      • Lydia Persson October 18, 2017 at 12:02 am #

        I have entered .1
        the product is $7.20

        • Kento October 18, 2017 at 9:10 am #

          Thanks Lydia, the rate you have entered seems correct and the net product commission (without taxes, shipping and coupons) should be $0.72. Would you like us to have a quick look at your configuration? If yes, please email temporary admin credentials to support at itthinx dot com and include a link to your site and this comment.

    I cannot register as a new affiliate, I will just say ERROR: This email is already registered, please choose another one.
    Suspected bot. and when I change the email it will just say Suspected bot. Please help I am planning on getting the pro version but the free is not working fine with me. Thanks.

    • antonio October 26, 2017 at 6:46 am #

      Hi Christian,
      Remember that if you are an user, then you don’t need to register from the affiliate-area page, you need to login as user, and sign up the the affiliate program from the affiliate-area page ( I guess you’re trying to register with an existing user )
      Related to the ‘Suspected bot’ message, maybe another anti-spam plugin is generating this message.
      Kind Regards,
      Antonio B.

      • christian October 27, 2017 at 4:26 am #

        So how do I be able to make the registration form, work even with anti-spam security active? or is there a way to be able to add affiliates manually and also add there username and password so they could be able to login in the affiliates area because the only thing I could do is add affiliates but that new affiliate could not log in to the affiliates area.

        • antonio October 27, 2017 at 8:04 am #

          Hi,
          You can use the Affiliates reCaptcha plugin.
          Related to register affiliates manually you can do it from Affiliates->Manager Affiliates. From this section, if you indicate an username of an existing wordpress user, then this user can access to the affiliates-area page.
          Kind Regards,
          Antonio B.

          • christian October 27, 2017 at 8:14 am #

            yes, I tried using you recaptcha plugin but it is using the old version 1 recaptcha that is already deprecated and not supported by google anymore for new sites. I can’t get a site and secret .key for this anymore.

    I have a large number of independent salespeople (affiliates) bringing customers to shop/buy on my WordPress website (WooCommerce Storefront theme). I want to provide each of these salespeople with their own unique and specialized link to my Home Page, which they will provide to their customers. If any of their visitors/customers purchase a product on my website, I want to track and attribute that customer to the salesperson/affiliate responsible for sending them to my website. Can I accomplish this with your Affiliates WordPress Plugin?

    • antonio November 14, 2017 at 11:13 am #

      Hi Tom,
      Sure, this is exactly that the plugin does. If you work with Woocommerce, you need the Woocommerce Integration.
      If you need advanced features, like your commissions are synchronized with the status of the orders, you have Affiliates Pro / Enterprise.
      Here you have available a video how to configure the plugin. If you need help, please let me know.
      Kind Regards,
      Antonio B.

      Hi Tom,

      In addition to what @antonio suggested and based on what you said:

      I want to track and attribute that customer to the salesperson/affiliate responsible for sending them to my website

      As an addition to Affiliates Pro or Affiliates Enterprise and to cover permanent assignment and commissions, you might also want to have a look at Affiliates Permanent.

      Cheers

    Howdy Antonio & Kento, you guys just became my new best friends.
    I’ll begin with Affiliates, and anticipate a move to Affiliates Pro / Enterprise and/or Affiliates Permanent.

    The next round of martinis is on me!
    Best regards,
    Tom in Texas

    Hi,

    I am developing a listing website where businesses are allowed to place free ads with there website links.. But I want to charge them commission only if visitor from my website goes to their website and buy a product . Is this plugin for me? If yes how i have to convert partner website url,s into affiliates links?

    Kind Regards

    • antonio November 20, 2017 at 3:46 pm #

      Hi Ali Syed,
      I think that is not what you are looking for.
      With our plugin:
      You need to have the Affiliates plugin installed in the website where the order is processed. Your clients should install the Affiliates plugin in their website. Then you register as an affiliate in the different websites of your clients, and you can share your custom links. So when an user visits once of your custom links, and buys something, then you get commission.
      Kind Regards,
      Antonio B.
