I am using WishList Member as my membership software and plan to use PayPal for monthly recurring subscriptions. I have also recently installed WP Affiliate (without the Estore plugin).
I’d like to pay affiliates a commission only on the 1st payment and not the recurring monthly payments.
Is it possible to do this with a WishList Member/Paypal configuration?
Thank you!May 7, 2014 at 1:15 am #62726
If you don’t want to give commission on the recurring payment then undo the current integration and do “Option 1” explained in the following page:May 7, 2014 at 3:02 am #62727
Thank you for your reply. I read the page that you referenced after seeing it posted in another forum thread. But I guess where I am a little confused is with the recurring payment portion.
On this page it says “This integration is best suited for one time payments (“add to cart” and “buy now” type transactions)”.
Under Option 2 it says:
Option 2) Integrating PayPal Button Using PayPal’s IPN Feature (More suited for developers)
This option is best suited for advanced users as it involves customizing and using some HTML code.
This integration works for all types of transactions (one time payments and subscription/recurring payments).
So I just want to confirm that Option 1 will allow me to charge one payment amount upfront (for which a commission will be earned by the affiliate) and then charge another amount on a recurring monthly basis (for which no commission will be earned)?May 7, 2014 at 7:49 am #62728
Yes, it will work for what you are trying to do.
Everybody wants to do recurring commission which is why we say the following for Option A:

Okay. Thank you. I now see where I was confused. When it says, “one time payments”, I assumed that meant one time payments for the customer purchasing a product for which there are no recurring payments.
I now understand that this is referring to one time payments to the affiliate.June 23, 2014 at 6:09 pm #62730
I’m using option 1 as suggested on this page http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/wordpress-affiliate/wishlist-members-plugin-and-wp-affiliate-plugin-integration-723
I have added the below code in the Paypal button code but the sales are not tracking in WP Affiliate
<input type=”hidden” name=”custom” value=“[wp_aff_custom_args]”/>
Can you please advise?June 23, 2014 at 11:12 pm #62731
Please post a link to the page where you have this PayPal button so I can check a few things.June 24, 2014 at 8:13 pm #62732

okay it looks like you have one extra double quote in that input field.
Edit that page in “Text” mode so you can see everything in there. Then edit that custom field line and overwrite it with the following:
<input type="hidden" name="custom" value="[wp_aff_custom_args]" />
Let me know when you have done it so I can check your landing page again to makes sure the value is generated correctly.June 25, 2014 at 2:12 am #62734
Thank you for the response please check now.June 25, 2014 at 3:03 am #62735
Looks good to me. It should now work fine.June 25, 2014 at 5:25 am #62736
Thank You very much I just did a test purchase and the sales was tracked
