I’m having troubles with finding a way to sell the product I have on my site. I already have a pricing table setup and I just want the Paypal links from my pricing list to integrate with the plugin so that affiliates can send traffic to the main site and if someone goes to the pricing table and places an order, the affiliate get’s paid.
I don’t use the eStore plugin, and I don’t think that I want to use it. My main goal from buying the plugin is to sell my current products just as they are, and affiliates will earn a commission by sending traffic.August 11, 2012 at 11:23 pm #48291adminKeymaster
The affiliate plugin can be integrated with a PayPal button that you created in your PayPal account. Have you read the following documentation?

I read through the AP plugin and PayPal integration article but it wasn’t clear if it addresses my issue.
One of my affiliates would like to have a BUY NOW button encoded with his affiliate ID that he can put on his website and that, when clicked, takes his customer directly to my PayPal checkout.
The way my site is set up now, all affiliate banners and links that affiliates place on their websites take their customers to my website. Once there, they can browse all of my training videos and chose the one to purchase, click the BUY NOW Button, go to PayPal’s payment site to pay, then they are redirected to the page on my site where the training video they purchased can be viewed.
My inquiring affiliate would rather advertise my training videos on his site and have a BUY NOW button that allows his customer to buy the video – and for him to get his affiliate commission – without his customer coming onto my site to browse. The customer would still be redirected to the video page on my site, but from their perspective, they did all of the shopping and buying from my affiliate’s page.
Is this possible?

Hi Michele, No, thats not how affiliates software work. Your affiliate needs to send the traffic to your site because you are the owner of the product. An affiliate can’t sell *your product* from his site.
I will give you an example. Lets say you are an affiliate of amazon.com. You will need to send the traffic to amazon.com and then the user can buy from that site. You (the affiliate) won’t be able to sell an amazon product from your site.
