Show Affiliate Info to Vistors

Affiliates Enterprise and all the awesome plugins are currently allowing me to do a lot in order to run this all as a fundraising (products based) framework. However, one thing I find missing is the ability to display “affiliate” information to the visitor.

For example, Visitor A uses XYZ Church’s affiliate link to purchase our candles. Once Visitor A is at our candle store there is a widget that displays the following: The “affiliates” name (XYZ Church), the current amount they have raised/earned, how much of Visitor A’s cart would go to the ‘affiliate’, and any other custom fields that would be nice to associate w/ the affiliate – earnings goal, brief description of their fundraiser’s mission, etc.). Ideally this widget would be displayed throughout the entire shopping and checkout process so that a visitor knows that their purchase, is in fact, going to help raise money for the charity they are intending to support.

So… in a nutshell, what is required to be able to take the affiliate ID that is passed as a query string in the URL and use that to get any affiliate field and display it to the web visitor?

Whew… hope that all makes sense!

Thanks so much for a wonderful plugin and support.

    Great! I apologize for overlooking the [referrer_user] shortcode in the documentation. Antonio, thanks for creating the affiliates-popup code example. I think this is going to send me down the right path for creating exactly what I need.

    Very happy customer,

    you can use the [referrer_user] shortcode, or use this code.
