Setting per-product, per-affiliate referral rates with Affiliate Product Rates

For integrations that support per-product referral rates, Affiliate Product Rates takes this one step further and allows you to set per-product referral rates on a per-affiliate level. Affiliate Product Rates currently supports Easy Digital Downloads and WooCommerce.

Follow these steps to set up Affiliate Product Rates:

  • Install and activate the Affiliate Product Rates add-on
  • Ensure your integration with either Easy Digital Downloads or WooCommerce has been enabled in the Affiliates  Settings Integration tab
  • In the Affiliates  Affiliates screen, find the affiliate you wish to set per-product rates for. Click Edit in the Actions column to edit that affiliate's account information
  • Affiliate Product Rates will add a new Product Rates section to the Edit Affiliate screen:

  • In the Product/s field, you can add any existing products for which you wish to set a specific referral rate. You can add one product or multiple products per referral rate/referral rate type. If you have multiple products per referral rate, the rate and type you set will apply to all of those products
  • In the Referral Rate field, enter the amount you would like to pay your affiliate
  • And then from the Type drop-down menu you can choose between a Flat Rate (specific dollar amount) or a Percentage.  For the Flat Rate, the currency shown will reflect the currency setting you have in the Affiliates  Settings General tab However, if you are using a Flat Rate that includes a decimal in your Referral Rate amount, make certain to use a period regardless of what you have set in your global Decimal Separator settings for accurate calculation results.
  • Click Update Affiliate and your changes will be saved. These referral rates and referral rate types will now only apply to this specific affiliate
