Affilate sign up outside of dashboard?

Is it possible to create a page with the shortcodes so that users can sign up for affilate marketing without going into dashboard?
And based on the video, it looks like you can set it up to only pay out when new users opt for paid subscription right?

    satori83, Hello

    Is it possible to create a page with the shortcodes so that users can sign up for affilate marketing without going into dashboard?

    Sure, you can use a login re-direct

    Affiliate doesn't actually "pay-out", however it does differentiate between free and paid subscriptions

    Hope that helps!

    So it just keeps record of their paypal email so I can pay them?
    And as for the redirect, im not sure thats what im looking for as I currently have them redirected to their buddypress profile. However we are looking to keep the dashboard out of the members access. But it looks as thoughthey can only sign up initially through the dashboard under user settings. Can they sign up from the front at all?

    From the info page:

    The plugin allows any user registered at your site to simply become and affiliate by filling in their PayPal email.

    So looks like you are a GO on that

    There are a couple ways around that, you could set up a Register Link in your Sidebar to go to that page only, create a page with a form for that info and you can set them up yourself. I did a quick look into it at a test site and it looks like that is the only place they can register.

    You can use a plugin that restricts what users see on the dashboard or something like Easy Blogger to control what they see on the Dashboard.
