WooCommerce Cloak Affiliate Links


The WooCommerce Cloak Affiliate Links plugin allows you to mask all external links in your WooCommerce store.

For example, change this…

… into this:

Configure the status code for the redirect to either 301, 302 or 307.

The plugin also adds a “Disallow” to your robots.txt file to prevent bots from following those external links.


  • Settings
  • Permalinks


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload the woocommerce-cloak-affiliate-links folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the WooCommerce Cloak Affiliate Links plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Configure the plugin by going to Settings > WC Cloak Links.


What redirect status should I use, 301, 302 or 307?

There’s a lot of debate about this. I would suggest Googling this and seeing which works best for you. The default status is 302.


Great plugin!

It is a rare plugin , does redirect all affiliate links in bulk ,each one to a custom redirect., automatically, you dont have to each one by one !!! .

Easy and works

This is a plug and play plugin. Just added it through the installer right within wordpress and all my ref links are cloaked.. easy 🙂
