I am running a website which sells one pdf product which is sold via Easy Digital Downloads. The site has an Optimize Press home page with a few Buy Now buttons. When clicked, the buttons get the user to a checkout page (one that uses the [download_checkout] EDD shortcode). The items are already placed in the cart and all they have to do is fill out their name and email, and then hit “complete purchase” which brings them to a paypal page which processes their payment and redirects to a receipt page. That all works well but I want to have affiliates which will have their own urls to send their clients to my site and get payed a commission. I bought/installed Affiliates Pro and Affiliates pro Paypal integration. Everything seems to work, Except when someone purchases through an affiliate link, the sales don’t get credited to the affiliates ( no referrals are assigned to affiliates.) I tried to enclose the [download_checkout] shortcode in the [Affiliates_paypal form] shortcode, but nothing seems to work.
