Adding CoursePress as an addon to Affiliates

Are there any plans to make CoursePress an addon for Affiliates?

    Hey Mari,

    Hope you're doing well today and thanks for your question!

    CoursePress should work with Affiliates now since CoursePress uses MarketPress as a checkout system :slight_smile:

    MarketPress already has an add-on for Affiliates so just activate that and you should be good to go. It will track course purchases just like it would track any product purchase through MarketPress.

    Hope that helps and let us know if you have any further questions Mari!

    All the best,
    Tyler

    Hello again @Mari, I hope you're well today!

    I was thinking of using it to capture unique clicks - for free courses - but needing MarketPress means that it can only capture clicks for paid courses... or do I have it all wrong? Will it work for non-paid courses as long as I have MarketPress activated?

    The purpose of an affiliate program is letting your users earn money by bringing more clients in.
    If your products are free then there's nothing to earn, therefore affiliates are meaningless and as a result they are not tracked. For performance and sanity reasons Affiliates will only be tracked for paid content.

    I hope that clarifies it!

    Cheers,
    Ari.
