    Hi David,
    The Affiliates subscription system is based on the Woocommerce Subscriptions plugin or directly Affiliates Paypal subscription button.
    Sorry, there isn’t an integration with SUMO plugin.
    Kind Regards,

    Hey, OK! I loaded the WooCommerce Subscriptions plug in, as per your suggestion (and Affiliates Coupons).

    I am now in the process of setting up the payment system for Affiliates. Question for Antonio B.

    I have applied for and received a PayPal Pro account. At the same time I loaded the Braintree PayPal plugin. I will need to utilize the advanced subscription settings as I need to allow customers to revise their subscriptions on the fly. I’m trying to determine which Paypal account will work best with the Affiliates plugin and still enable me to service the customers needs and pay affiliates without a hassle. I don’t expect you to answer questions about Subscriptions but given the above which (Braintree or Pro) do you think will work the best?

      Hi David,

      Antonio asked me to have a look at your question.

      To answer your original question: Affiliates Pro will grant the referrals for referred subscription orders and renewals if you have this enabled. This is independent from the payment processor you choose as long as it works well with WooCommerce Subscriptions.

      In general, my advice would be to use the payment solution which best integrates with your business’ requirements. I would certainly look at the transaction volume you envision and which solution is providing the same service at a lower cost. Have you considered Stripe?

      I don’t see any major differences in how your choice would affect the process and integration with the affiliate system. As long as these solutions work well within the framework provided by the subscriptions plugin, the related referrals will be updated according to the orders (and if you choose to have it enabled, this holds for renewal orders, too).

      I hope that this helps you a bit further.
