If you aren’t ready to commit to a third-party affiliate program and have basic affiliate program requirements, give this add on a try.
New Features in the Affiliates Add On for Paid Memberships Pro
Globally Rename the term “Affiliates” for Your Unique Program
You can globally replace the term “Affiliates” throughout the tracking system to any term (singular and plural) of your choice. This is useful if you would like to repurpose the Affiliates Add On for a “Referral” program or “Invitation” program.
Automatically Generate the Affiliate After Membership Checkout
You no longer need to manually create the affiliate. We’ve added a setting on the Membership Level to generate the affiliate for you.
Generate the Frontend Page for Member Affiliate Reports
Navigate to Memberships > Page Settings. Here you will see a new setting for the “Affiliate Report” page. Click the link to generate the page (or create it manually and add the shortcode
[pmpro_affiliates_report]. A link to this report page is automatically added to the “Member Links” section of the Membership Account page.
Improved Appearance of the Member’s Frontend Report
We’ve made some enhancements to the appearance and “guidance” for the report output your members will see within their Membership Account. We hope this makes things a little bit easier to manage for you and your members.
We understand that this Affiliates Add On isn’t a complete system – it doesn’t handle any payouts to your affiliates nor does it deduct the “sale” from the affiliate when a member cancels. However, it is still a useful add on if you’d like to allow members to refer one another and see the growth they are generating under their account.
You can then develop your own offline or manual affiliate payout system to extend this lightweight add on for your unique needs.
