Contact Form 7 – Direct ONLY

Posted in

Hi, I set the field Direct Referrals in Affiliates Set-up screen. Installed contact form 7 with your plugin.

When I add a new referral using contact form 7, the referral can be viewed in Referrals back end. However it is added as Direct even though I am logged in as a registered affiliate.

I am thinking it is not being picked up as I have not linked via the affiliate URL? Problem is I want to have affiliates register and then add their own leads (referrals). Is this possible?

Many Thanks

    With Affiliates->Contact Form 7-> Notifications you can setup emails to admin and/or affiliates.

    What I need to achieve is this:

    When a referral is added using contact form 7 (I have the integration pack), the the form must assign the referral to an Affiliate. I know about affiliates_url, but how is this passed when a referral is added and the person did not come from a web link?

    Also, on contact form 7, I want to email the affiliate when a referral is added. again, how do I pick up the affiliates email?

    Many Thanks.

    ps – As you can see above the task I am doing is assigning leads/referrals to an affiliate/introducer. The affliate is adding leads he got off-line. We change the status once the lead is converted to a sale.

      The person must come from a web link, you can’t assign a form only to an affiliate forever.
      If an affiliate creates her leads, he can use the affiliate’s link once, and while he doesn’t clean the cookies, all leads that he creates are assigned to her.

      When a referral is created, an email is sended to affiliate (you can setup this in Affiliates->Contact Form 7->Notifications).

    referrals are created based on the source link. If a user comes from a non affiliate link, then is assigned to Direct.

    If you want add referrals to an affiliates, you need use the affiliate link ( can create this using shortcode [affiliates_url] )
