To manage an Affiliate Marketing or Partner Referral Program and track visits to your site with affiliate links, the Affiliates plugin is a powerful solution.

Simply put, the affiliates plugin is used to manage affiliates, create referrals and track visits to your site through affiliate links.

You can show your affiliates how well they perform, by embedding simple shortcodes on a page.
