Affiliates Enterprise not recording referrals

I ahd Affiliates free, and it worked fine for a few days, but when I switched form Piad Memberships Pro to S2Member, it stopped. I purchased the Enterprise yesterday and followed ti installation instructions, but it is still not recording affiliate referrals at all, nor crediting them. I run a free site and used the fix from the Affiliates Pro S2Member page, but to no avail. Any help here?

      Hi Wayne,

      For referrals on registration, go to s2Member > API Notifications, under Registration Notifications paste the following URL:

      Changes you need to make to this URL:

      – Substitute the xxxxxxxxxx with the key for your site (indicated under Affiliates > s2Member).
      – Adjust the amount parameter to the base amount you want to use for calculating the commissions. For example, if you grant 20% commissions on referrals and want affiliates to get credited with 2$ per registration, use amount=10.
      – Indicate the desired currency using e.g. currency=USD as in the example. This is required because there is no payment transaction related to the referral.

    I did what you suggested, and then tested the affiliate link by signing up a new member account. It did not record the new member as a referral. However, in the database, I see that it does record (but will not display in either admin screen or to the referrer) new affiliates. Am I missing something?

      when do you want generate a commission? Normally is generated when you sell an access level.

    It’s a free site. Do I still need to set up a Paypal button?

    on Affiliates->Settings you must:
    1.- Set “Referral amount” or “Referral rate” in “Default referral calculation”
    2.- Click Save button
    3.- Set the amount/rate in “Default referral calculation value”

    Also you have not configured the s2member Paypal buttons.
