Affiliates Pro – Commission Per PRODUCT in WOOCOMMERCE

Posted in

I’m building a website for my client. My client would like me to create an affiliate program where he users can go to the website and sign-up to be an affiliate, then provide others with a link to purchase one of his products, and if the person buys the product, the person who joined the affiliate program gains $5 in their account. I’ve purchased this plugin for the affiliate program he desires but I can’t seem to get this to work. Can you please explain how to do this?

plugin is Affiliates pro and shop is woocommerce

    Hi Kevin,

    Check the configuration under Affiliates>WooCommerce Integration, the last section is called Recurring Referral. If you enable it, the affiliate gets paid whenever the payment is repeated and vise versa if you don’t enable it.

    Kind regards,

    Ok, looks good.

    I have another question.

    My product #2 is a subscription, this product ships once every two months for $25. Say my friend uses his affiliate link and they purchase the product, after the second month when the person pays for it the second time will they gain the affiliate commission for the second purchase?

    Hi Kevin,

    Go to Dashboard>Products, edit the product you like and in Product data on the left column the last option is Affiliates(right under Advanced). There you can set the referral rate based on my previous suggestion.

    Kind regards,

    site is

    shop is

    I’m using WooCommerce, WooCommerce Subscriptions, and Your Plugin.

    I can give you an admin account to check if you would like.

    I have created the affiliate area, I’m fine with that, it looks good.

    I want to make it so when the user comes to the site and goes to /affiliate-area/ they can register for an account, and spread their link to others. When they link it to someone, that person can go to the link and purchase product 1, 2 or 3. If they purchase product 1, the affiliate will get $5 commission, product 2, $5 commission and product 3, $10 commission.

    How can I achieve this?

    Hi Kevin,

    Which e-commerce plugin do you use? I’m asking that in order to give you specific instructions.
    What you are planning is to give an affiliate a commission when someone buys a product through his product affiliate link?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Kevin,

    I see what you mean now.
    You can go to Dashboard>Products and under the product attributes there is an option Affiliates. Although you can set only a referral rate and not amount, you can adjust that rate to equal the amount you want to offer. For example if the product costs 50 and you want to give a 5 commission, then you could set the rate to 0.10 etc.

    If you want though to link a specific product to a specific affiliate, no matter who refers the buyer, then you should use Affiliates Products. For example if product 1 is associated to affiliate 1, whenever someone buys product 1, then affiliate 1 will get the commission set.

    Kind regards,

      Do you mean going to Product data -> product type -> affiliate product?

      That turns it to an affiliate product, it’s not an affiliate product.

    Basically each individual product has a different commission value,

    Product 1 – $5 commission
    Product 2 – $5 commission
    Product 3 – $10 commission

    Hi Kevin,

    Make sure you have also installed and activated WooCommerce integration found under Affiliates>Settings>Integrations.
    Under Settings>Registration tick the option Allow affiliates registration.
    Affiliates can register in the page Affiliates Area that can be created if you click Generate button under Affiliates>Settings>Page.
    Then, set the referral amount to 5 in Affiliates>Commissions.
    For a more detailed reference visit the documentation

    Kind regards,

      I’ve done this, how does this answer my problem though?

      Right now I have 3 products in my shop, I want affiliates to be able to link to one of my products (just one product) and when they purchase that product they gain the $5 commission, I don’t want this to happen for the other two.
