AffiliateWP – Recurring Referrals
You will be able to record affiliate commissions whenever a subscription payment is made on a membership that was suggested by an affiliate thanks to the functionality of Recurring Referrals. You don’t have to give affiliates a commission simply for bringing in new members; instead, you can give them a commission for each and every payment that members make during the course of their membership.
At current time, integration with the following services is supported by Recurring Referrals:
- WooCommerce and the WooCommerce Subscriptions add-on (requires v2.0+)
- Easy Digital Downloads and the Recurring Payments extension
- Restrict Content Pro
- Paid Memberships Pro
- Gravity Forms
- Stripe through WP Simple Pay
- PayPal Buttons
The AffiliateWP settings screen will feature a new tab labelled “Recurring Referrals” once the plugin has been successfully installed:
If you do not check the box to Enable Recurring Referrals and set a Recurring Rate and a Recurring Rate Type, it will use the referral rate and percentage that are associated with the applicable affiliate. To enable recurring referral tracking for the supported platforms, simply check the box to Enable Recurring Referrals. When this feature is enabled, referrals will be automatically recorded whenever a renewal payment is made for a subscription that was referred by an active affiliate. Once this feature is activated, it will remain enabled until disabled.
You also have the option to “Enable Recurring Referral Limits” and “Set a Numeric Value” to limit the number of recurring referrals that are made for recurring payments. These are additional settings that you can configure. And finally, if you use our pro add-on Tiered Affiliate Rates, you will see an additional checkbox that allows you to Enable Tiered Rates to be utilised for Recurring Payments. This checkbox is only visible if you use Tiered Affiliate Rates.
