FAQ

Can I leave the parent product URL empty?

No, the parent product URL is required if “Affiliate Product” is enabled. This URL is used as a fallback URL in the case that a variation that’s added to the cart does not have an individual affiliate URL.

Do my products still go into the shopping cart?

No, if “Affiliate Product” is enabled, the item will automatically be removed from the cart, the cart notice message will be dismissed, and the user will be redirected to the affiliate URL.
