My developers have setup everything but when testing it shows the click but not the sale. Here is the page where the paypal buttons appear.

After this I would like to know at what point will the affiliate get payed when it actually starts recording the sale?October 21, 2010 at 1:11 am #25626
All the buttons are missing the “custom” and “notify_url” fields explained in the documentation here:
There is a section called “Example for PHP” which has button example codes for both hosted and non-hosted version of PayPal buttons. Please request your developer to have a read of that page and it should clear things up.
All the commissions are accumulated until you make a payout when you want. Check the “Manage Payout” menu.October 21, 2010 at 1:33 am #25627
thank you for your prompt response as we are very excited to get rolling on this.
I went to this location and couldn’t find anything:

is that going to be a problem?October 21, 2010 at 5:08 am #25628
Yeah you are not expected to find anything. It’s a script that listens for payment notification from PayPal then awards commission (It won’t show anything to you when you directly go there).
I have added another method of plain PayPal button integration for the affiliate plugin which I think will be more suited in your case. I have just updated the documentation so please have a look at option 1 from the following URL:
I have also sent you an updated build of the affiliate plugin so you can use this feature.October 21, 2010 at 3:15 pm #25629
i was trying to do this with just a plain button and not having to install a estore but the screen shot you show tells to check the 3rd party cart integration. does the 3rd party cart mean its for the estore or the paypal plain button?October 21, 2010 at 4:38 pm #25630
we have done everything as instructed and tested it and it’s still not recording the sale. please helpOctober 21, 2010 at 7:00 pm #25631
Ok i think i’m getting this. i have a script that changes the auto return url after payment is made so that my database knows what kind of lenghth of membership they subscribed to..
do i need to set this button up using estore to enable this to work?October 21, 2010 at 10:03 pm #25632
we found this:
the cookie variable
dont return any valueOctober 22, 2010 at 3:10 am #25633
First of all the first method explained on this page is for integrating the affiliate plugin with plain PayPal button (it doesn’t require you to have eStore or any other pluing):
You do exactly as it says in those 3 steps and thats it.
When you created your PayPal button you specified a return URL correct? This is the page where your customers are redirected to after the payment. What is the URL of this page? Is this a page or post that was created in WordPress?October 22, 2010 at 3:22 am #25634
here is the situation with my site.
My customers first pay and then are prompted to a screen where they then create their own login credentials. The script for the return url always changes, therefore its not just one URL that they get returned to.
The script does this so my database knows if they signed for a monthly, trial or yearly. I think that this may be the cause for the problem.
My developers started digging and they think it’s because there is not return on the cookie variable…
Thanks for you helpOctober 22, 2010 at 6:59 am #25635
“therefore its not just one URL that they get returned to” – As long as they return to a WordPress page or post on your site it will work (It doesn’t have to return to a specific page all the time).
Anyway, For the other method make sure the code to retrieve is being used in PHP. For example:
<?php echo $_COOKIE; ?>
Remember, if you are planning to place the button code with PHP code in it on a WordPress post or page then you need to have a plugin (e.g. PHP Exec plugin) that lets you execute PHP code in WordPress page or post as by default PHP code doesn’t execute in WordPress post or page.October 22, 2010 at 7:00 pm #25636
i have now payed my developers thousands of dollars trying to fix this problem. they have done everything explained from the very beginning and still can not get working. what should i do? can i pay someone to do this???October 22, 2010 at 7:16 pm #25637
I already have this “PHP Exec plugin” running on the mixed-magazine admin and still the <?php echo $_COOKIE; ?> on the wordpress page doesn’t return value.

It shouldn’t really be this hard to integrate… I think it’s best if I jump on your server and check it out. I will send you an email to get site access.October 23, 2010 at 1:48 am #25639
ok thank you! do you have online chat?
