I thought I had everything working … affiliate started referring others and now there seems to be a problem with Affiliates being credited with referrals when registering with eMember Registration form.
My initial registration is FREE and I’m using the eMember Registration form.
I have settings set so that an Affiliate accounts are created automatically as well as a WP user account.
When a client is referred by an Affiliate and they sign up using the eMember registration form, I see the referrer saved correctly in the wp_eMember_members_tbl table.
The problem is, the referrer is NOT being saved to the Affiliate table wp_affiliates_tbl so when an Affiliate checks their referrals, there is nothing.
How can I make sure that the referrer is also saved to the wp_affiliates_tbl table when a user registeres using the eMember Registration form?
Is there a configuration setting I need to set or something I need to add to the eMember registration so that the referrer is stored correctly in the Affiliate plugin table (wp_affiliates_tbl) ?
Is there an easy solution I’ve overlooked or does something really need to be changed in the code?
I need to get this fixed fast as my Affiliate think they are not getting credited correctly and it’s true.

Upon further investigation, the referrer field is updating correctly in the Affilaite table.
The original problem that let me to post the problem is that the referrers are no showing in the Affiliate Center.
The clicks are showing and any custom tracking codes are there but no list of referrers.
I’m thinking since everyone is signging up for free and there are no sales referrers are not shown?
But it seems there should be something showing your referrals regardless of if there is a sale or not.
So, How to get a list of referrals of eMember registractions showing in the Affiliate Center even if there are no resulting sales and the referrer field does have the referrer username in the referrer field in the table?December 12, 2013 at 2:34 am #59599adminKeymaster
Your affiliates will only see the clicks and the sales (when they get a commission). An affiliate is not suppose to see everything that you (the site admin) can see. Are you going to charge the members for something later?
If there is no sales involved then you probably want to capture them as leads (for free membership I am guessing). Take a look at this addon maybe:December 13, 2013 at 6:40 pm #59600
I ended up coding another option in the Affiliate Center Menu that lists referrals that have not turned into sales.
I will eventually charge a membership fee, but my affiliates want to know that their referrals are being credited correctly. The data was in the table, I just created another menu option to display this data in a table.
Thanks for making the source code available so pepole can make such changes as necessary. Without such, I would not be able to use your plugin, but so far it’s working out very well.
