Contact Form 7

Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 14.14.29This plugin integrates AffiliatesAffiliates Pro and Affiliates Enterprise with Contact Form 7.

This Affiliates Contact Form 7 Light integration stores data from submitted forms and tracks form submissions to the referring affiliate.

The applications of this integration range from simply recording and tracking form submission data to paying affiliated partners commissions on leads or successful purchases. Clients can be traced back to the referring affiliate, team members can be notified when new form submissions have been received.

Submissions through one or more forms handled by Contact Form 7 can generate referrals. This integration can generate referrals for all forms, restrict it to selected forms or exclude certain forms.

Form data

All submitted form data is stored and can be viewed on the administrative back end along with each referral. All or parts of submitted form data can be provided in notification emails to affiliates. Form data can also be displayed on the front through referral stats. This allows to display selected pieces of information for example to affiliates or sales team members.

Flexible referral amounts and currencies

Contact Form 7 forms can generate referrals with fixed amounts, rate-based amounts or based on custom methods. Forms can provide fixed referral amount or base amounts for rate calculations. Multi-currency systems are supported by Affiliates Pro and forms can provide different currencies in each submission.

Two special form fields are recognized, if a field is named affiliate_id or affiliate_login, the referrer is taken from the field’s value. This allows to build forms where the submitter can choose the referring affiliate by ID or by the affiliate’s user login. Example fields:

Select the affiliate ID
[select affiliate_id "" "5" "4" "2" "7"]

... or select the affiliate by user login
[select affiliate_login "" "jane5" "henry4" "diane2" "mark7"]



Upon each form submission, this integration can send notification emails to the site admin as well as to the referring affiliate. In Affiliates Pro and Affiliates Enterprise notification emails for affiliates can be customized to include information provided in submitted forms.
