I do not understand your explanation of this feature. What happens if I turn this ON?
Does this mean that if an affiliate refers the user “John Doe”, the affiliate will always get paid a commission on every order that user “John Doe” submits? Instead of just a one-time commission?
Please explain **in detail** what Duplicate Referrals feature means…thank you!
Welcome to our support forum and many thanks for using Affiliates Pro on your site.
As mentioned in the option description two referrals would be considered duplicates when they have the same amount and currency and all the data involved are the same. Practically this could only be possible if ie you are recording referrals for form submissions and two different user-submissions have the same info data submitted for the same form and the amount is the same. If ie the form is submitted once and is not reset on reload, then it could be easily re-submitted producing a duplicate referral. In this case if the duplicate should be avoided, then the option should be kept inactive.
What you described is also possible but only through another premium addon called Affiliates Permanent. Each customer will be permanently assigned to the referring affiliate.
