Documentation

After i install this NETWORK wide a user could go to back end > users > aff and enable it.
once they enable it they can either put in their site and then link to the main site from their site and the plugin knows the click through are coming from their site

OR

the user can use the auto generated link ?ref=kljlkj-37

they can then go to users > aff and track clicks, purchases ect ect

but what do i do?

after activating it do i need to enable it? if so do i enable it on network admin or just admin?

paypal is not automated so i will just need to go in to there and see who sent me what and send them some money correct?

as far as the % that is not hard coded is it? i just kind of say on the sales page that you get X% for everyeone you send my way right?

i tested this on one child site and the click showed up instant and now im not sure if i screwed something up or if a cookie is set on my pc that doesnt allow the click to show up from another child site.

based on that if someone clicks on 2 ref links the first ref link will get credit for it right?
how long is the cookie stored for?

can i change the cookie length?

    Hiya!

    after activating it do i need to enable it? if so do i enable it on network admin or just admin?

    Once you've network activated the plugin will start tracking referrals and reporting on that for you, there's no more you need to do.

    paypal is not automated so i will just need to go in to there and see who sent me what and send them some money correct?

    Yep, that's right.

    as far as the % that is not hard coded is it? i just kind of say on the sales page that you get X% for everyeone you send my way right?

    Yep, you just decide the rate and pay affiliates accordingly.

    based on that if someone clicks on 2 ref links the first ref link will get credit for it right?

    Yes, that's right.

    how long is the cookie stored for?

    I believe the cookie is a 90-day cookie but you can easily check that in your browser.

    can i change the cookie length?

    It would be possible, but that'd require an edit to the plugin itself which we wouldn't recommend.

    Thanks....

    Major issues with this one. unless im missing something.

    I created a test site, got the aff link for that site.

    opened up a different browser with cleared history and cookies went to the link and signed up for a 1 month recurring subscription

    when i go to super admin >aff reports i see that the test user referred someone.
    when i go to the test user > back end > aff referrals, it only shows a unique click , no sign ups and no paid members. (does this update daily or is it supposed to be instant)

    back to super admin
    when i go to all sites i see a new column for referral info - but this is empty?
    but when i go to all users it shows me who referred the user in the new column.

    i guess i really dont care where it is showing me who referred who but i need to know who referred who and what the referred person bought.. did they sign up for a month, 3 month, 12 month subscription?

    I guess i could manually check everything but ehhh

    more testing around.

    super admin back end > aff settings> i sent the test account a $5.00 debit, credit, and payment.
    when i go to the test account aff settings it still says 1 click ZERO sign ups, paid members, DEBITS, CREDITS, PAYMENTS.

    My understanding is that this is instant so let me clarify with the developer on that...

    back to super admin

    but when i go to all users it shows me who referred the user in the new column.

    Yep, because referrals are user-based not site-based.

    Affiliate only shows sign ups. If you want integration with Membership you need to activate the membership add on.

    aaron

    so install pro sites and then activate the supporter.php add on and thats it?

    i think i had it activated last night and i wasnt sure if supporter.php was the old supporter or the new pro sites so i turned it off.

    one thing i remember was affiliate asking me how much i wanted to give for supporter 1, 3, and 12 months

    im only offering 12 months and multiple levels for 12 months so will the "improved functionality" include an option to pay affiliates x if they send over a level one client or y if they send over a level 2 client?

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
