Integrating Paid Member Subscriptions with AffiliateWP allows you to reward affiliates for visitors that signup for a subscription plan on your website.
Enabling the Integration
To enable support for Paid Member Subscriptions, go to Affiliates → Settings → Integrations and check the box that says Paid Member Subscriptions:
Once enabled, AffiliateWP will automatically generate referral records when a customer successfully registers for your site after clicking on a referral link.
In Affiliates → Referrals, the Reference column refers to the payment ID in Paid Member Subscriptions.
Clicking on the Reference column will take you directly to the edit payment page in Paid Member Subscriptions.
Important note: Referrals will only be credited on the initial signup payment, and will not be created when subscription payments are recorded.
Per Subscription Plan referral rates
Admins can set referral rates per subscription plan within Paid Member Subscriptions.
This means that each subscription plan in Paid Member Subscriptions can have a specific commission rate. This specific commission rate will be awarded to affiliates who refer customers to your site who then sign up for that particular subscription plan.
When creating or editing a subscription plan, locate the Referral Rate input field and enter your specific subscription plan referral rate.
If no rate is entered, the default rate in the AffiliateWP settings will be used.
Affiliate Coupon Tracking
To take advantage of the Affiliate Coupon Tracking you will firstly need the Discount Codes Add-On.To enable affiliate coupon tracking, go to Paid Member Subscriptions → Discount Codes and create a new discount code. At the bottom of the Add New Discount form, there will be an input field called Affiliate Discount:
Simply begin typing the name of the affiliate you wish to connect the discount code to and select the affiliate from the list of user accounts found:
Any time this discount code is redeemed, and a purchase is completed, the connected affiliate will be awarded a referral.
