Once enabled, AffiliateWP will automatically generate referral records when a member successfully registers for your site after clicking on a referral link.


Viewing Membership Checkout Referrals

In the WordPress admin go to Affiliates > Referrals. The Reference column refers to the Order ID in Paid Memberships Pro.

Clicking on the Reference column will take you directly to the order record in Paid memberships Pro.


Referrals will only be credited on the membership initial payment, and will not be created when subscription payments are recorded. If you’d like referrals to be created on subscription payments, you will need the Recurring Referrals add-on.
