Affiliate Plugin Setup – Track Product Purchases

How do I setup my Affiliates plugin so that it only pays outs if a individual clicks through a banner ad and then signs up for our event.

This is our site:

I would like to give our affiliates 10% when a user clicks through a banner on their site and pays for one of our programs.


SEAL Adventure Challenge: This is our site:

Cost of program: $199

Affiliate receives: $19.90 if the user pays for the program

Special Ops Academy: This is our site:

Cost of program: $2,499.00

Affiliate receives: $249.90 if the user pays for the program

We currently use EventEspress plugin to manage these programs and our payment gateways are Stripe and Paypal.

Please let me know if you can help, I can also be reached on Skype: dnelsonuf

    Hello Doug!

    Welcome to the Community!

    Since Affiliates doesn’t automatically integrate with your chosen event plugin you’d need to rely on it tracking the signups to your site via the program purchase (this means that your purchasers are made subscribers or signup via the WP form)

    You’ll see on your reports page that you can track Signups and Unique Clicks. I am not sure if it would track your Paid Signups, as I’ve never used it with the plugin you are talking about, however it would be worth a shot to try a test signup or two to see if it does indeed track the Paid Signup.

    I’m pretty sure that you’d not get to see who signed up for what plan though, even if it does track the paid signup.

    HOWEVER! Our Membership Plugin, and MarketPress Plugins both Integrate with Affiliates to grant automatic commission when a purchase is made and keeps track of them for you.

    Would you be opposed to trying out one of those for your purchases? it would greatly simplify the affiliate calculation and tracking process for you.
