Support » Plugin: YITH WooCommerce Affiliates » A few changes required

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the amazing plugin. There are a few important points which I believe are required.

    First of all I need to change the word “Affiliate” or “affiliate” to “Reseller” or “reseller” respectively.

    Secondly, I would want an option to remove or disable the Payment Email Address. My client is managing his payments by other means and not Paypal, and therefore the payment email part of the sentence in the “Affiliate Dashboard” which links to that page (where we can edit the payment email address) is not required.

    Lastly, there needs to be a way to update the calculated value before the payouts are marked completed. This is because, if in case, one of the orders is returned back or on of the items in the order is returned back, the payout value must change, and since that can not be automated, there should be an input field given to admins to edit that value.

    Hoping for a quick response.

    Hi Prateek

    Thank you for your suggestions! 🙂
    Let me answer to each point

    1. Currenlty there is no easy way to change all occurrences of “Affiliates” label to “Reseller”; I will consider to add a filter for this purpose

    2. With version 1.1.0 of the plugin, we added yith_wcaf_payment_email_required filter, to completely disable payment email

    All you have to do is to add something similar to functions.php file of your theme or child theme

    add_filter( 'yith_wcaf_payment_email_required', '__return_false' );

    3. If an order switches to refund status, commission amount will be removed from affiliate’s earnings, and commission won’t be any longer available for payment

    On the other hand, on partial refunds, our plugin will generate commissions again, leaving only commissions on the part of the order that wasn’t actually refunded

    Obviously this happens only for commissions that still needs to be paid

    We spent many time trying to give admins a robust system, that will always show correct amounts; if you find some bugs in these procedures I will be glad to check them

    Anyway, I’d prefer to avoid giving admins the ability to change commissions amount, since this could create errors beyond plugin’s control, and it is never a good idea, when handling money 🙂


    Thanks for the response.

    1. Yes, please consider adding it as a new feature.

    2. I tried adding the script in functions.php and it works, but the problem is, I still see links on the Affiliate Dashboard page – like this –

    How can I remove the hyperlink on “manage settings” and remove the “Settings” link altogether from the side menu.

    3. Oh, so you are saying the deductions for partial refund are made automatically? If yes, that’s great!
