AffiliateWP – Affiliate Area Tabs


This plugin requires AffiliateWP in order to function.

Affiliate Area Tabs allows you to add custom tabs to AffiliateWP’s Affiliate Area. Each tab is linked to a WordPress page making it exceptionally easy to add and manage the tab’s content. Pages assigned to a tab are only viewable to affiliates. Since version 1.8 of AffiliateWP it’s possible to remove any of the existing tabs in the Affiliate Area (Affiliate URLs, Statistics etc).

Here are just some of the things you could do:

  1. Add a “Request Payout” tab and then insert a form. Your affiliates can now request that they be paid at any time.
  2. Add a “Contact” tab and insert a contact form. Your affiliates can now contact you from the Affiliate Area
  3. Add a “FAQs” tab and insert some common questions and answers for your affiliates
  4. Add an “Important Dates” tab and list some special dates and promotions for your affiliates to remember
  5. Add a “URLs” tab and list some special URLs (landing pages or product pages) for your affiliates. You can even show their own referral URL using AffiliateWP’s [affiliate_referral_url] shortcode.
  6. Add a “Leaderboard” tab and insert an affiliate leaderboard, using the AffiliateWP Leaderboard plugin
  7. Add a “News” tab and share important news with your affiliates (or link to other blog posts)
  8. Add an “Affiliate Brand Assets” or “Downloadables” tab, and add documents or images from your WordPress Media Library that don’t suit the existing Creatives tab.
