Recurring Referrals - setup

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

General configuration

Once the Recurring Referrals add-on is installed, you will have a new Recurring Referrals tab added to the AffiliateWP settings screen:

To enable recurring referral tracking for the supported platforms, simply check the box and click Save Changes. Once enabled, referrals will be automatically recorded anytime a renewal payment is made for a subscription that was referred by an active affiliate.

You can also, optionally, set the recurring rate. This is the rate that will be used to calculate the amount an affiliate earns on subscription payments.

For example, if you wish to award affiliates 25% on the initial signup and then 10% on every payment thereafter, you would set it up as such:

  • In Affiliates → Settings → General, set the default rate to 25
  • In Affiliates → Settings → Recurring Referrals, set the Recurring Rate to 10

Disable recurring referrals for affiliates

If you wish to disable recurring referrals for specific affiliate accounts, you can do so from the affiliate's edit screen:
