Support » Plugin: Affiliates » Remote Domains/Linking Sites

    Does this plugin support remote domains?

    For example:
    I have The Affiliates plugin and WooCommerce set up on yyy.com.
    I want to set up another one page domain called, zzz.com with a buy button linked to yyy.com. (For transparency sake, I will make it clear to visitors to zzz.com that they will be redirected to yyy.com to finish their purchase.)

    Is there a way I can link the two domains so affiliates only need to be registered on yyy.com but can also be credited for referrals to zzz.com?

    I want to keep using the plugin on yyy.com, but I have a special product that deserves its own page, which is the reason for the additional zzz.com domain.

    If this is not possible, can you suggest a workaround to make things super easy on my affiliates? I don’t want to make them have to sign up on two different domains to get credit.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    If the order is placed on yyy then the affiliate links must point to that domain. If you want the same links to yyy work also on zzz, you would have to make sure that every click on an affiliate link to zzz also generates the corresponding request on yyy. When the customer then ends up purchasing on yyy, the system could then record the appropriate referral. Alternatively, you could just use coupons (those require one of the premium versions though).

    If the order is to be placed on zzz, then you would need to have the system running there and the affiliates sign up on that domain again.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the information.

    I did as you said and made sure every click on the affiliate link on zzz links to yyy. To accomplish this, I set up a page for each affiliate on zzz and made sure all the links pointed to the affiliate’s ID on yyy.

    I only have a few affiliates right now, so setting up individual pages did not take up too much time or space.

    Thanks for telling me about coupons. I will look into it.

    Kind regards!
