To enable support for OptimizeMember, go to Affiliates → Settings → Integrations and check the box next to OptimizeMember:
Once enabled, AffiliateWP will automatically generate referral records when a customer successfully registers for your site after clicking on a referral link.
In Affiliates → Referrals the Reference column refers to the transaction ID from your merchant processor (Stripe, PayPal, Authorize.net, etc.) for the payment recorded in OptimizeMember.
- Referrals will only be credited on the initial signup payment, and will not be created when subscription payments are recorded.
- In order for referral tracking to work properly, your IPN / webhooks must be configured for OptimizeMember. Consult the OptimizeMember documentation for further information if you experience issues with referrals not being created properly.
- Custom URL order links for PayPal are not supported. Only products and levels setup via the [optimizeMember-PayPal-Button] and [optimizeMember-Pro-PayPal-Form] shortcodes are supported.
- The [optimizeMember-PayPal-Button] shortcode will not work on a multisite network.
