Hello. We purchased the Affiliates Pro Woo Commerce version and are having a little difficulty with getting it to work.
1. We do not want affiliates to be able to register themselves online. We will enter the affiliate information. However, we would still like our affiliates to be able to login to see their stats. I’ve created a couple test affiliates so far with my email, however, I’m not getting any kind of notification … so how can we set up these affiliates with passwords if we’re not using the standard registration form?
I did find one support thread where someone wasn’t getting confirmation emails from the registration form. I’ve tested that and we DO receive emails from the form, but we don’t want the form on the website, we just want to enter the affiliates in the admin.
2. This question has to do with the amount that we’re paying the affiliates for the sale of a product. The documentation is a bit confusing on this and doesn’t seem to clearly state how to do it. I see under Settings that there seems to be a way to set up a Default Referral Amount calculation. We only have 1 product and we want to pay each Affiliate $40. So is it correct to use “Referral Amount” and then 40.00 here? It seems like you can also set up referral amounts on the product page but that was even more confusing. Do we have to “enable product referral rates” in the WooCommerce Integration before those will show up on the Product Data > Virtual/Affiliate Product area? Then does that override the one set in the Settings are?
3. Is Pay Pal the only way to pay affiliates? If so, the email that we sign up an affiliate with therefore has to also be their Pay Pal email, correct?
