Registration forms & payments with affiliate

Hi,

I had installed the plugin, created few people as affiliates, and i can see on the reports the unique clicks, but how can i see who registered through the form on the page? How do I conect it to the affiliate system?

I'd also like to know if I can connect payments to the system if the payment is via external link.

Thanks

    Hi @Ahrale,

    Using affiliates by itself will only track clicks. Are you using it with Membership, Pro Sites, MarketPress or Directory? This is when it would actually record a sale.

    If you're not using any of these plugins, you could enable the Membership affiliate add-on without Membership present and it will still track registration numbers, but it won't keep track of who specifically referred them.

    Hey,

    Tracking payments with other software would require an add-on for affiliates to be created for that specific software. For example, the MarketPress affiliates add-on hooks into the MarketPress payment process and watches for payments. Then if there is a tracking cookie present, it records that payment with the affiliate user.

    So to use a third party system, an add-on will need to be created that links the two together, or somehow notifies Affiliates of the payment.
