Adding a new affiliate
To manually add a new affiliate go to Affiliates > Manage Affiliates and click New Affiliate.
Fill out at least the Name of the new affiliate, you can leave the rest empty or provide the Username if the affiliate already has a user account. You can also add a user account later if desired. If you provide a Username the email associated to the user account will be used as the affiliate’s email.
The From date will be set to the current date automatically, leave it empty unless you would like to enable the affiliate at a certain date.
Click Save to create the new affiliate.
Editing an affiliate
To edit an existing affiliate go to Affiliates > Manage Affiliates and click the Edit icon. Here you can modify the email address, the user name or the validation dates.
The Edit an affiliate form has the same basic options with Add a new affiliate form.
If a user account is associated with this affiliate, the option “Edit username” will also appear.
The option “Edit username” gives you access to edit the user profile/information.
After manually adding an affiliate, you can define affiliates attributes.
To remove an affiliate go to Affiliates > Manage Affiliates and click the Remove icon for the desired affiliate. Confirm your decision by clicking Remove.
Note that you have removed albert7 as an affiliate of your affiliate program database but the user record still exists.
In this case, the same user cannot register again.
If you also need to remove him as an user go to your WordPress Users menu and click the Delete button.
If you simply want to invalidate an affiliate so that the affiliate will not be credited with referrals anymore, you can set the appropriate Until date by editing the affiliate. This will retain information displayed for that affiliate and the affiliate will still appear in the affiliate listing when the Include inoperative affiliates filter option is checked.
