Giving a customer a unique Affiliate code to use at checkout

Posted in

I am wanting to give the affiliates their own unique code and they then can give this to their customers to use at check out. This code then lists the sales in the affiliates account reports.

Using coupons doesn’t seem to work because it looks like it is for customer discounts? And I could not see the sale in the affiliate account report.

    First, please go to your wp-admin > plugins and make sure the itthinx updates plugin is installed and activated.

    Then click on the settings link ( the arrow in the image ) and you will get to the page where you have to enter your Service key. Paste your key and save.

    Now go to your Affiliates menu and to ‘Settings’ and choose the ‘Integrations’ tab. In this tab the first option will be to activate the WooCommerce integration, activate it and you can start assigning your coupons to your affiliates.

      I did all of that but it still did not work. I found that I had to buy the coupon plug in for it to work.

    In this case you can use the WooCommerce Integration plugin with Affiliates Pro to track sales with your coupons. Since you already installed the itthinx updates plugins go to the Affiliates Menu > Settings > Integrations and choose the first one ‘WooCommerce’. Click the install button and then activate it like you would do with a plugin.

    Now you can assign your coupons to your affiliates, to do that you will need to add the coupon codes as an Affiliate attribute.

    Go to Affiliates > Manage Affiliates.
    Click the affiliate or its Edit link.
    Click New Attribute.
    Select Coupons as the attribute key and indicate the coupon code (for example 10PCT) as its value.
    Hit Add and the code is now assigned to the affiliate.

    In this page you will find screenshots of the process, guidelines and at the bottom some example cases to understand better how it works.

    Kind Regards,

      I had already tried that but it gives me an error that says the The Affiliates WooCommerce Integration plugin is not installed.

      I tried reinstalling Affiliates Pro and it said it failed because it was already installed.

    Thank you for using Affiliates Pro.

    In order to assist you further we will need more information about your setup. Which plugins are using together with Affiliates Pro? Are you using WooCommerce with coupons?
