I need to provide my affiliate with a link that redirect the users directly to my paypal link for payment. obviously if the payment is ok, the plugin should calculate a +1 in sales.
to do so I created an ADD, giving as Target Url the paypal link.
It has worked only ones but giving commission to a wrong affiliate (very strange!)
Now it is not working anymore.
Do you have suggetions?

Have you tried these instructions for Direct/Plain/Hosted PayPal Button and Affiliate Plugin Integration?July 13, 2016 at 7:04 pm #73684LL84Member
Yes I did try these instruction.
the problem is that I provided my affiliate not with a button but with a link (the one that paypal calls email link). So I cannot use the [wp_aff_paypal_fields] code…
I’m in a very strange case…July 14, 2016 at 3:33 am #73685adminKeymaster
So that affiliate will never send the user to your site using his/her affiliate link? When does the click get tracked in your example?
Please review the following post so you understand how an affiliate tracking system works in general:
If you need to combine both the click (referral) and the payment all in ONE action and it has to be a simple link then your ONLY option is use use the affiliate plugin together with our WP eStore plugin. A simple PayPal link that directly goes to paypal’s site (bypassing your site entirely won’t work).
Our eStore plugin has a feature that you can use to create a payment link (so it will be a link for the payment) but it will go via your site. That allows you to combine the referral and the payment in that link. so for example, the payment link will look something like the following:
When this link is clicked, it will set the affiliate referral then send the user to the payment gateway for payment.
