a) What part of the product isn’t working?
I am seeing clicks and sales appear under individual affiliates…but the PayPal payment is only being delivered IN FULL to the PRIMARY PAYPAL account. NOT to the affiliate’s paypal account.
b) What are you trying to achieve?
I am trying to make the commissions show up in the affiliate’s PayPal account.
I have followed the Integration Instructions for s2Member and WP-Affiliate. I am making the buttons within s2Member for LEVEL ONE. I am pasting the PayPal button shortcode into a POST on WordPress. The commission level has been set to give affiliates 50%. ‘
The reporting is working perfectly in the SALES/COMM DATA, ClickThroughs etc…but no payouts have been made. And the affiliate is not receiving commissions into their paypal account. I have verified that the PayPal Payment address is correct…and the payment is going in full to my primary business account…and not to the Affiliate’s Paypal Account. I control both for testing purposes. I even have a unique transaction ID for each transaction (which I assume came from PayPal.)
Does WP-Affiliate direct commissions to the proper accounts automatically or do I need to manually send payments to affiliates from my primary PayPal account using the data reporting within WP-Affiliate?
c) What causes the error to show up?
No error….just no payments happening to affiliates.
d) What version of the plugin are you using?
WP-Affiliate Version 5.8.5
e) Provide a link to the exact page where the problem is seen
I can’t do that because it’s a commission delivery issue to PayPal…it’s just not showing up in affilate’s paypal account.
f) Which product you are using (example: eStore, WP Affiliate Platform, eMember, PDF Stamper etc…)?
g) Did you modify the plugin code?
No I did not make any changes and I followed all the instructions for S2Member and WP-Affiliate integration.August 28, 2014 at 10:26 pm #65188watchman220Member
After further investigation I have realized that the payment system is not fully automated… (perhaps too much to ask).
I found the PayPal mass payment options. And I tried to generate a Mass Pay file…(the report works fine) but the CSV file (LOOKED LIKE) it was not generated…or no option to save was initiated. FOR THOSE WONDERING…you do have to read everything in that page and look for the link in mid sentence that says “Affiliate Payout Report File” and then RIght CLick and choose “Save Link As” in order to save the file…
To the admins and developers of this awesome plugin… is there anyway to create an interface with PayPal that automatically pays affiliates immediately upon their successful sale? Thanks a ton!

And remove the last vestiges of human control from the process???
What if the buyer asks you for a refund the next day? Can you imagine the hassle of reversing the commission?
Not to mention all manner of abuses that can occur.
