Signup Referrals - "Easy Digital Downloads" referral type

Note: This article relates to the Signup Referrals pro add-on.

Easy Digital Downloads provides two different ways a user can register for a user account.

  1. The [edd_register] shortcode 
  2. At checkout, if account creation is enabled

Enabling the Easy Digital Downloads referral type

  1. Select the Easy Digital Downloads Registration checkbox
  2. Click Save Changes

Configuring a referral amount

Once the Easy Digital Downloads Registration referral type has been enabled, an  EDD - Registration Referral Amount input field will appear. Enter the flat rate amount an affiliate should receive when a user registers.

Disabling the signup referral when a customer purchases

Since it’s possible for AffiliateWP’s  Easy Digital Downloads integration to also be enabled, 2 referrals will be created when a customer purchases, if they create an account at checkout; one for the actual referral sale, and one for the account creation. If you don't want Signup Referrals to create the referral at checkout, enable the EDD - Disable Checkout Referral option. When this is enabled, referrals for the [edd_register] shortcode will still be created.
