Memberships + Affiliates: Trying to setup free site

Hi folks,

I'm trying to setup a general site with these features:

1. Free Membership site with both visitor and member content
2. Members can refer other members. Ideally, I'm hoping that upon a new member registration, I can get deduce the referring user somehow from an action event

For #1, can we operate Membership Pro w/o any payments/subscriptions?

For #2, any member that joins should have a link to use to promote the site. I downloaded the Affiliate plugin, but I don't see quite how to setup what I'm seeking.

Can I do it with these plugins?

    Hey there @drmikecrowe

    For #1
    Yes, you can set a membership for free and all that your users need to do is sign-up. :slight_smile:

    For #2.
    Yes, Affiliates and Membership plugin is compatible. It's up to you if you want to pay only approved affiliates ( all options in Affiliates plugin). To make sure this will work. Activate two plugins and then go to Admin -> Affiliates -> Add-on -> activate the Membership.

    If you still need help about this. Let us know and we are happy to help you. :slight_smile:

    Best Regards,
    Calvin
