I have the plugin installed, I followed Option 2 for adding Paypal integration.
The clicks are registering but the sale is not getting assigned to the affiliate. When I look at the sales data page:
Dashboard -> Wp Affiliate -> Sales Data
The sale is there except the User id and Commission amount fields are blank (the rest of the fields are populated). When I log in as the affiliate, the I see zero sales, but I do see clicks.
A few things to note.
The sale is $4.97/month – the commission is set at a one time $5.00 payout – could that be a problem?
Here’s my default landing page:
Thanks in advance,

Thank you for providing the link to the page.. it makes the troubleshooting easy.
Your PHP code in the “custom” field of the button is not getting executed. If you do a view source on that page and look at the button code you will see the followoing:
<input type="hidden" name="custom" value="<?php echo $_COOKIE['ap_id']; ?>“>
See how the PHP code is not getting executed? If it was getting executed you would see the affiliate ID there not the exact code that you placed.
The following paragraph that I am quoting from the documentation might help you:
“Remember, if you are planning to place the PHP example code 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.”
By default WordPress doesn’t execute PHP in post or page so I think that is your problem.November 4, 2010 at 2:38 pm #26055frugaltekiMember
Thank you Amin007
I actually had the “WP exec PHP” plugin activated. I deactivated that one and installed “PHP Execution” and it seems to be working.

Please let me know which method of PayPal integration you are using on your site so I can check to see if you have done all the required steps for that method.
Are you using option 1 or option 2 explained in the following paypal integration documentation?May 19, 2018 at 11:53 am #26058

I will do it and give you feedbackMay 22, 2018 at 11:24 am #26059
