I'm using Pro-sites with Multisite and looking at options for an affiliate program. I believe that the WPMU affiliates plugin is easily integrated with pro-sites but users need to be registered on the site to become affiliates. Since I don't offer free accounts, I'm assuming that I can't have affiliates who are non-members (i.e. paying pro-sites members) - is this correct?
Secondly, I've found a plugin that looks great on the WP repository: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/affiliates/. The things I really like about this second plugin are:
- Affiliates can register without needed to be members.
- There's an external page they can log into and access their affiliate links and stats rather than go through the site backend dashboard.
So my question is basically twofold: i) can the WPMU affiliate plugin be configured to deliver the same functionality as listed in the two points above and ii) Can the affiliates plugin on the WP repository be modified to integrate with Pro-sites? If so, how...
I'm happy to do any coding and customisation at this end, but just wanted to be sure about this before going further.
