Need some guidance and information about the affiliate system

I am used to affiliate system and normally there's a page for the admin where we can set payout, multiple banners, etc...

and also affiliates have their page with HTML code for banners or URL to send directly....

so here's the questions:

- How do I set that all users of WP are affiliates
- How do I set an admin page for Affiliates -> ex: mysite.com/userlogin/affiliates (protected page)
- How do I set the payout amount and commission %
- Is there some stats for affiliates (x number of people)

Thank you :slight_smile:

    Hope you are doing good !!

    - How do I set that all users of WP are affiliates

    This is not possible out of the box, can be done with a hook but NOT recommended because users need to sign up with Valid PayPal etc

    This is the hook for your reference

    do_action( 'affiliate_signup' );

    - How do I set an admin page for Affiliates -> ex: mysite.com/userlogin/affiliates (protected page)

    You can setup a front end page for it using shortcodes like shown here

    Here's a list of them for quick reference:
    [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

    - How do I set the payout amount and commission %
    Is there some stats for affiliates (x number of people)

    Both of this can be done via the backend. Once a affiliate has signed up and added as an affliate then you can approve / pay / delete the payout amount.

    The stats can be viewed directly in the admin panel or using short codes as explained earlier.

    Cheers
