Thank you for your time.
I already did but I wonder if there’s any method to allow affiliates to place PayPal buttons not just links to my products. I mean, a method enabling affiliates to sell my products directly from their sites, blogs, facebook and so forth.
I did access the page with the paypal button code from an affiliate link and still didn’t work. The commission is not shown.
You mean if some customer visit the page with the paypal button and simply click on it the ap_id will not be sent? But the button code includes the ap_id itself (see above). It should be returned to the script via paypal PDT.The procedure is described in method 1 at https://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/wordpress-affiliate/plain-paypal-button-and-affiliate-plugin-integration-168.
Moreover it worked as such without having to arrive via an affiliate link prior of clicking the paypal button.
A test button may be found at freudfile.org/test.html
I didn’t understand the second question.
The debug file records seem to show that the affiliate data couldn’t pass from Paypal:

The plugin is not working. No commissions assigned to the affiliates.
It worked just fine a month ago but now it stopped working. I didn’t make any change to the initial settings. I am not sure what is about.
Method used: 1.
PayPal button is hosted.
It worked after I deactivated the smtp plugin.
3. Paypal Button:
