To enable support for Gravity Forms, go to Affiliates → Settings → Integrations and check the box that says Gravity Forms:
Once the integration has been enabled, go to the Form Settings tab of your form:
Scroll to the bottom of the page, and under Legacy Settings, tick the Allow referrals checkbox, and select the Referral Type (Sale, Opt-In or Lead). Save the changes by clicking the Save Settings button:
Now, AffiliateWP will automatically generate referrals when a customer is referred to your site via an affiliate link, and this particular form is successfully submitted.
In Affiliates → Referrals, the Reference column refers to the entry ID in Gravity Forms:
Clicking on the Reference column will take you directly to the entry details page in Gravity Forms.
Referral Type and Amounts
If your global or affiliate Referral Rate Type is set to percentage, you can set values on the form to result in any referral amount you would like.
To calculate a specific referral amount for each form submission, you will need to add a Product field with a value of your choice in Price, as well as a Total field that is automatically populated for the final calculation. These fields can be seen in the Pricing Fields section in the form editor:
For the Product field, you can check the box Disable quantity field since you will not need it. Next, assuming you do not want this field to be visible to the user when filling in the form, click in the Field Type drop-down list and select the Hidden option.
To hide the Total field, this requires an extra step. When editing the field, go to the Appearance tab and enter
gf_invisible in the Custom CSS Class field. This CSS class is provided as part of the Gravity Forms plugin for your use.
AffiliateWP will use the global or affiliate rate amount to calculate an affiliate commission based on the value you entered in the Product's price field. The Total field will calculate the total price for the form, and subsequently, how much affiliate commission will be calculated.
Example of setting a Percentage referral rate: If you wish to generate a $10.00 affiliate commission on every submission of this particular form, you can set a global Referral Rate of 10% in AffiliateWP's General settings, and enter “100.00" in the Price field for the Product section of the form. When an affiliate successfully refers a visitor, and the visitor completes and submits this form, a referral commission of $10.00 will be generated for the affiliate. This is especially useful if you have multiple integrations and plan to use percentages elsewhere. Only one rate amount is possible per form.
That's it, you're done!
