  • The basic/free version is pretty good on its own. However, my biggest issue is how restrictive the pro version is in terms of updates. You get an average of 4 updates a year or sometimes less so new WP changes get missed out very easily.

    For instance, my existing theme wasn’t supporting the affiliate disclosure hence I asked them to provide me with a shortcode to add to the page template so it would add the disclaimer on any page where the affiliate link was (since it wasn’t automatically working).

    Unfortunately, not only did they have nothing to provide back then, they still don’t and just said no to my request for a shortcode for me to add. After paying for 4 years and to get a response where I could get penalized easily, I didnt renew the pro subscription.

    In a nutshell, this is the best affiliate software out there for FREE. Just not worth the extra cost for pro if you have fickle themes running on their own template system.
