To grant commissions on referred customers, you can enable the WooCommerce customer registration integration.

Enable WooCommerce customer registration integration

Please note that only one of these options should be checked. If both options are checked and a customer is referred, it may yield two referrals instead of one for the same referred customer. You want to Enable the user registration integration if you want to grant referrals on any referred new user account. If you only want to grant referrals to referred customers, then you only Enable the WooCommerce customer registration integration.

If you choose to Enable the WooCommerce customer registration integration, make sure that you actually allow customers to create an account during checkout. The system will not record any referrals for orders placed without an account. You will find the corresponding settings under WooCommerce > Settings > Accounts & Privacy > Account creation.

AmountAmount: If this amount is set, it is used to grant a fixed commission for referred users. Your affiliate will earn this amount when she or he refers a new user.

Referral Status: The commissions per referral will be recorded with the chosen status. We recommend the use of the following statuses:

  • Accepted: if these referrals should grant payable commissions to affiliates without the need for further review.
  • Pending: if these referrals are to be reviewed before the commissions should be taken into account for affiliate payouts.


If you decide to grant an affiliate US$1 per referred WooCommerce customer, the Amount should read “1” and the Currency should read “USD”. We choose Accepted as the referral status in this case, assuming that those referrals do not need to be reviewed and can be included as accepted commissions for the referring affiliate.
