I’m using WP Affiliate and paypal and nothing else.
The product I’m selling has a paid trial period and then a recurring monthly price. Affiliates should get a commission on both a percentage of the trial period and the recurring. This is all handled through one paypal button.
Do I add the following inside Paypal’s “Add advanced variables area” or can I just add it to the html code generated by paypal for the button that’s already on my site? When I tried adding it to Paypal’s add advanced variables, the code would not display in the button code that paypal generates.
<input type=”hidden” name=”notify_url” value=”http://www.your-domain-name.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-affiliate-platform/api/ipn_handler.php”>
<input type=”hidden” name=”custom” value=”[wp_aff_custom_args]”>
I’m following Option 2) here: http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/wordpress-affiliate/plain-paypal-button-and-affiliate-plugin-integration-168 Do I need to check the 3rd party cart integration on the WP Affiliate settings page if I’m doing Option 2?
For recurring affiliate payments, how does the plugin track when a member quits and the payments have ended? Just want to confirm that the IPN notifies the site when a recurring payment has ended so the WPAffiliate reporting reflects paypal recurring cancellations in real time.
Thank you so much!April 19, 2013 at 10:56 pm #55225adminKeymaster
1) You add it to the html code generated by paypal for the button that’s already on your site. Take a look at the example button code that is on the documentation page here which should give you an idea of how to do that:
2) You don’t need to check that. Basically, do only what the documentation says and you should be good
3) Yes, the plugin will listen for the IPN so when a recurring payments end it won’t give commission for that anymore.
