Installation

  1. Install and activate the WP e-Commerce plugin. Configure your shop and create products.
  2. Install and activate the Affiliates plugin. Use the default settings or configure it to your needs.
  3. Install and activate the Affiliates WP e-Commerce Integration plugin.
  4. A new WP e-Commerce menu item will appear under the Affiliates menu in WordPress. Set the referral rate for your affiliates there.

Note that you can install the plugins from your WordPress installation directly: use the Add new option found in the Plugins menu.
You can also upload and extract them in your site’s /wp-content/plugins/ directory or use the Upload option.

If you upgrade from Affiliates to Affiliates Pro or Affiliates Enterprise, the default referral rate should be set automatically under Affiliates > Settings.
Although this is done automatically, it is adviced to double-check that the settings have been adjusted correctly.

FAQ

What features does this integration provide?

When a sale is made through WP e-Commerce, a referral is recorded for the affiliate that referred the sale.

How can I set the amount that affiliates earn on each sale?

If you are using Affiliates, go to Affiliates > WP e-Commerce and set the rate there.

If you are using Affiliates Pro or Affiliates Enterprise, the rate settings under Affiliates > Settings apply.

Example: If you want to give an affiliate 10% of each net total sales amount, set the rate to 0.1.
