EDD : Referral created but i am not credited

Posted in


i use Affiliate Pro with EDD, last versions of the plugins. The problem is that Affiliate Pro create a Referral when the client arrive in the Paypal page, without paying ! In this case i receive me and the affiliate a notification saying that “A referral has been credited to you…”.

I would like that it takes in account only cases when the visitor pay, not just arrives on the paypal page.

I need to fix that quickly, my affiliate campaign is in progress…

        the referral is created when the order is created. You can set “Default referral status” to pending on Affiliates->Options.
        And send notifications only when the referral is accepted.

    you can control the notifications on Affiliates->Notifications.
    You must select only “Notify when a referral is: Accepted”.
