Note on Events Manager Pro:
The premium version of Events Manager integrates with WooCommerce. For those sites using this method for bookings checkout, you can keep track of referred bookings using either Affiliates Events Manager or Affiliates WooCommerce integration, but not both. When both integrations are active at the same time, there will be duplicate referrals recorded for the same booking.
