FAQ

How can I import Variable Affiliate Products?

Go to WooCommerce > Settings and enable the “Enable importing mode” option. Then, when importing the products, you’ll need to import these custom fields:

  • “_amb_vap_prod” – import “yes” or “no.
  • “_amb_vap_prod_url” – import the parent product affiliate URL.
  • “_amb_vap_prod_cart_text” – import the text for the buy button.
  • “_amb_wpvap_variation_url” – import the variation affiliate URL.

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.

This plugin works very well with my website. Since I have variable products, this plugin helped me create a cool professional product page for combination selection with affiliate links which otherwise would have been difficult. Thank you for this plugin! Keep updating this! PS: It also help sync poducts to Google Merchant Center

Installed the plugin, followed the instructions, it works as expected. Solves my problem. Thanks to the team. A suggestion for improvement would be an option to open the link in new tab.

Install and setup all worked fine. When testing the link on the product page, the link didn’t open and just remained on the product page. Such a shame as it would have been perfect for what I need. Hope it’s updated soon.
