how to members become affiliates?

Confused about the affiliates program. Don't see any instructions about how our members can become affiliates. Have enabled the plugin and looked through all settings, but think I'm missing something.

    Hi there @peter_harris,

    Hope you're well today and having a great weekend! :slight_smile:

    By default a affiliate would be a WordPress user, so if they don't already have a account, on a single site they would sign up at

    On a multisite they would register at wp-signup.php and choose a user account only (they could also choose a site, if you have that option enabled).

    They would then visit the wp-admin area > users > affiliates and choose from the drop down to enable affiliate links.

    Alternatively the best option would be to use the included shortcodes to output the affiliate info and signup to the front-end of the site using the following shortcodes.

    [affiliatelogincheck] – place this at the top of the page that you are planning on using the rest of the shortcodes on and it will display a login message if the user isn’t logged in.
    [affiliateuserdetails] – mirrors the affiliate details form from the admin area (yellow box)
    [affiliatestatstable] – mirrors the large click statistics table
    [affiliatevisitstable] – mirrors the referrers this month table
    [affiliatetopvisitstable] – mirrors the top referrers table
    [affiliatestatschart] – mirrors the main statistics charts
    [affiliatevisitschart] – mirrors the referrers charts
    [affiliatebanners] – displays the banners you add to your affiliate settings

    Any issues at all, we're here to help.

    Thank you!

    Kind Regards
