Hi there, I need to be sure my potential affiliates will get commission if I am using the following set up:
1. Affiliate link goes to an opt in page hosted on my domain but created in leadpages.
2. Customer is now on my list- BUT only gets follow up with the free opt in gift from me.
3. Any subsequent emails to customer come from affiliate with links to product pages/
However, what happens if customer opts in- gets freebie- then follows link in book to product page and buys? or…opts in then at later date goes to site and buys?
I had thought of having an affiliate only landing page – so we know that anyone on that list came from an affiliate referral- so if they then appear on buyers list and affiliate tracking did not work- we know they were originally the affiliates customer.
Help? Am new to all this and want to make sure affiliates get their due commission

The setup you have will still work. The opt-in page and the product pages are all part of your WordPress system so after a visitor lands on the site following an affiliate link, it will know that the user was sent by an affiliate (even if the user doesn’t click another link later).April 27, 2015 at 5:58 pm #65901
I want to create an affiliate program for people to refer me leads for an offline event. This is how it works:
1. Affiliate link will send people to an opt-in page
2. People enter their name and email and opt-in for getting a free ebook
3. There is nothing to buy at the moment
4. I will invite the people who opted-in to my live event where I will be offering a product (coaching).
5. From the people who signed-up for the product at the live event, I want to pay the affiliates who referred them in Step 1.
It is possible for me to know which opt-in (email) is referred by which affiliate?
Thank you very much.

What plugin/solution will you be using to sell this coaching product from your site? Will you be selling the product from the same WordPress install where the affiliate software will be installed?April 29, 2015 at 12:18 pm #65903
Sorry if I was not clear. I will not be selling the coaching product from the website because it is a live face-to-face coaching (an offline event). I will be selling this product at a live event (the audience are those who opted-in for my free ebook using an affiliate link)
In this case, will I be able to know which email is referred by which affiliate?April 29, 2015 at 11:50 pm #65904
In that case you want to capture them as leads. So later when you sell something to them you will know which affiliate sent which lead and award commission accordingly.
Are you familiar with the lead capture model?
Read the following documentation for more details:May 3, 2015 at 3:31 pm #65905
Yes, exactly. I want to capture them as leads. Thanks for the link. I am using GetResponse, but I dont see that as one of the options?. Do you have a GetResponse addon as well (like the Aweber addon)? Thanks for you help so far. I really appreciate it.May 4, 2015 at 1:16 am #65906
We should be able to create a solution for it. I have sent to you an email so I can take a look at your opt-in code.June 24, 2015 at 3:34 am #65907
I want to know if WP affiliate will track an affiliate link for a freebie on a WordPress home page or LeadPage and track all the way to the sale when cookies are set to 365 days. I tested this by changing my product on my sales page to $1. I then logged in as an affiliate and copied just the URL part of the text link: [http://herbiznow.com/?ap_id=writing_editing]. Without clearing my browser, I went to the regular sales page and bought the product for $1. I should have received a notice from WP affiliate that I received a 35% commission, but I did not receive a notice. When I logged into my affiliate center, I saw that WP affiliate tracked the freebie click but not the sale. Am I correct in understanding that WP Affiliate should track the freebie all the way to the sale? If this is correct, how do I re-test so that the commission comes through?
The freebie needs to work in WordPress or on a freebie page created with LeadPages and re-created in WordPress with the LeadPage plugin.
Will WP affiliate only track the sales link directly and not the freebie to the sales page? Please clarify.June 24, 2015 at 11:55 pm #65908
What do you mean by a “freebie”? Is it a free download that doesn’t cost any money or $0?
Please answer the following questions so we understand your setup:
1) A link to your landing page in question (where you have the payment button)
2) What are you using to handle the eCommerce/sale side of things (a PayPal button or eStore plugin or any other plugin?)
3) Which integration you are using (simply link to the integration documentation that you have followed from our site).
All the available pre-made integration options are listed on our documentation under the “Integration Options” section (simply tell us which one you are following):June 26, 2015 at 3:08 am #65909
Hello, thank you for your reply!
By freebie, I mean that if you go to the home page, [http://herbiznow.com/] you can download a free report and get it delivered to you via AWeber. There is no sales button with a zero fee on the page to get the free report. It is just an opt-in form in the widgets. I made a text link with [http://herbiznow.com/] as the sales page URL. Is this incorrect?
1) Here is the link to the landing page with the payment button. [http://herbiznow.com/lets-go/] I was not actually using the current buy now buttons, but rather a link with the product price listed as $1 for the purposes of the test. I added the PayPal email link: [https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=XFPYF7KXJDQNE] for the test and bought off of that button. However, I am also using WishList with this site and did not add the following short code to the test buy button: <input type=”hidden” name=”custom” value=”[wp_aff_custom_args]”/> I found that short code after my test when I reviewed this article about Wishlist integration: https://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/wordpress-affiliate/wishlist-members-plugin-and-wp-affiliate-plugin-integration-723 Could that be part of the problem?
2) I am using PayPal for eCommerce.
3) I’m not sure which integration options I’ll need to set up for sure. At the point of the test I had only integrated WP affiliate with PayPal by adding the PayPal PDT Identity Token. I did not know at that point that I might need to add integration with Wishlist. I am currently using WP Affiliate, PayPal, Wishlist, and AWeber.
Thank you for your help!June 27, 2015 at 12:12 am #65910
You should be able to integrate it using the PDT option (or using via Wishlist integration).
Lets see what is going on with the PDT integration. What is the URL of your “Thank You” page (where the PDT data is being sent after the transaction)?
Please enable the debug option in affiliate plugin (if you haven’t done it already). Then do the following:
1) Click on an affiliate link that takes you to the language page (where the payment buttons are)
2) Make the purchase
3) You should be on the “Thank You” page with PDT data in the URL. The plugin will verify the payment and award commission at this stage.
When you get sent to the thank you page after the payment, do you see PDT data in the URL of that page?July 1, 2015 at 1:51 am #65911
You are missing step 3 from the following documentation (this is why the plugin is failing to process the PDT):
You have do all the steps of an integration for it to work (you have kind of done half of 2 different integration options). Focus on ONE and complete that integration fully. Please complete that 3rd step and then do a test transaction.July 1, 2015 at 5:44 pm #65912
Thank you very much! I rechecked all my steps and the Third Party Integration button in WP affiliate was not enabled. I reran my test from freebie to sale, and the commission tracked correctly!
Now that PDT is fully integrated with WP affiliate, does that still mean I have to add the extra line of scripting to the PayPal buttons for Wishlist?
Am I correct in assuming that future freebies in LeadPages will work with WP Affiliate as long as I use the LeadPage plugin to replicate the LeadPage as a WordPress page?
Thank you for your help!July 2, 2015 at 2:10 am #65913
No, you don’t have to do anything else. We have various different options but that doesn’t mean that you have to use all of them. You pick one that works for you and just use that option.
Yes, as long as the referral is coming to a WordPress page, it should track fine.
