@wzp: The discussion in the link is slightly different because in that case affiliate links do directly go to Paypal. This is not the case in my scenario. Affliate links will point to my landing page, so the cookie is set.
The problem is ‘only’ how to register the sale when using the Paypal LINK instead of the Paypal button. Do you have any more insight on that or is it simply not possible without a shopping cart plugin?August 25, 2016 at 8:43 pm #74035wzpModerator
Isn’t a PayPal “button,” nothing more than a link with an image graphic? With that in mind, can you not use this information; then “strip out” and then use the resulting link from the generated PayPal button code?August 26, 2016 at 12:06 am #74036adminKeymaster
If you use the first option explained in the following documentation, it should work fine:August 26, 2016 at 8:25 am #74037highest potentialMember
Good, thank you. Reviewing this video I see now that ‘option 1’ does not need the wp-affilaite shortcode [wp_aff_paypal_fields]
As I understand it option 1 does only work with one time payment buttons is that correct? I often have people purchase something on a payment plan using an ‘installments’ Paypal button (so it is not really a subscription, only 3 or 4 installments). Would that work with option 1 as well?August 28, 2016 at 5:24 am #74038adminKeymaster
No that won’t for you then. The option 1 is only good for using “Buy Now” type transactions.
If you are using a recurring payment type transaction then you will need to use option 2.
The other option is to use our WP eStore plugin since you have bought that also. Use our WP eStore plugin to accept the payment. eStore plugin is integrated with the affiliate plugin by default. eStore plugin will let you create links to accept the payment.
