I have done all paypal a/c set up IPN etc. as I can find in all your documentation. Unless I am mistaken I thought it was possible to pay the affiliates automatically by paypal. I have been trying for a while and can not find how this can be done. The buy now button is only a buy now button i.e. if I try putting the suggested code onto a page (text) to pay an affiliate with this button I get message “You are logging into the account of the seller for this purchase”
The documentation doesn’t say where to put the code for the button . is this the code ?
Is there any other clearer explained steps for set up or should I try to hire a code person – forget the mass payment , way to difficult for me.
On a similar note – since Affiliates plugin doesn’t process payments to affiliates, what is the best way to pay our affiliates? Go in through PayPal and pay them to their PayPal email? Or is there a way to pay affiliates with the WooCommerce/Affiliates Pro plugins?
you can pay your affiliates using their Paypal email manually (don’t forget close the referrals in Affiliates->Referrals).
Also you can create a mass payment file and use it in Paypal (in Affiliates->Totals).
Affiliates plugin doesn’t process payments to affiliates.
Affiliates Paypal’s integration is used to generate commissions when a Paypal’s payment is done.
