Affiliates by Username / Affiliates Products

I’m truly sorry for all of the questions I’ve asked as I am in no way familiar with any of this web stuff. I downloaded the ‘Affiliates by Username’ Plugin, but I’m not sure how to change the URL’s to include my reps’ usernames in their personal links. I have no earthly idea what a shortcode is or where the heck to insert one. Help please?

Also, I’m confused on how to set a customized commission per product and in turn link it back to the correct affiliate?

    Okay! I figured out the custom commission setup, but I still can’t figure out the custom affiliate links. Could you somehow like create a step-by-step video or something like that for me?

      here you have available the affiliate area page code using username.
      You only need create a page and paste the code with “Text” tab selected in content editor.

    Hi Jake,

    Don’t worry, it’s rather simple actually:

    Shortcodes – these are of the form [some_shortcode] and will usually show something on a page. You can read more about that on the Shortcode page.

    Affiliates by Username uses a shortcode to alter affiliate links, on this documentation page, under the heading “Shortcode usage”, you will find two examples which you can copy and paste onto a page (like the one obtained by generating the affiliate area), then save the page and view it as an affiliate to see what exactly your affiliates will see.

    Affiliates Products :
    Assuming you are using WooCommerce, to link a product with Affiliates Products, create a test product, go to Affiliates Products > WooCommerce and for the product you have created, choose the desired Affiliate in the drop down box and set a rate, then hit Save at the bottom of the page.
