Here is my test:
1. The Affiliates Permanent is configured with “Assign new customers to the referring affiliate” and “Assign users to the referring affiliate upon first referral”. See here.
3. An existing customer Li Li purchased 2 orders: #4769 with coupon rgs2-b719a and she got $20 off $80 total. Then #4771 with coupon rgs3-efcfb and she got 5% ($4) off $80 total. See the top 2 on-hold orders in Orders tab in WooCommerce and she had 3 other previous completed orders.
I expect the behavior like the document describes: Purchases made by existing customers who are not assigned to an affiliate will not credit any affiliate, even if the customer has visited an affiliate link after her or his initial purchase.
However, both affiliates were credited incorrectly. The last 2 orders in the Referrals tab showed they both were credited, although the purchase were by an existing customer. You can also see the 2 pending commissions in the “Manage Affiliates” page.
Can you please advise where I configured wrong? How should I fix it?
