With this integration plugin, referrals are created automatically for your affiliates when sales are made through eShop.
The plugin allows you to set a referral (commission) rate so that your affiliates get credited with a referral based on a percentage of each sale’s total net amount.
Affiliates allows you to maintain your own affiliate program to boost sales through your online store powered by eShop. This is what you need:
Install these, set up your shop, set the referral rate for affiliates and distribute your affiliates their affiliate links. Whenever an affiliate refers a client to your store and the client makes a purchase, you will see a referral created for the affiliate.
eShop Test Mode
Please note that in eShop’s Test Mode, no referrals are recorded.
