Stripe (through WP Simple Pay)

Important: Only enable this integration if you are using the WP Simple Pay plugin as your only source for payments and/or subscriptions. If your eCommerce/Membership plugins already provide Stripe payment functionality, do not enable this integration.

Stripe is supported by AffiliateWP through the WP Simple Pay plugin, which provides an easy way to embed payment forms using Stripe on your WordPress site.

To track affiliate referrals with AffiliateWP and Stripe, you will need:

Once the above requirements are meant, you can enable referral tracking for purchases made through Stripe by navigating to  Affiliates → Settings → Integrations and checking the box for Stripe (through WP Simple Pay).

Once the Stripe integration is enabled, all purchase forms set up through WP Simple Pay will be able to generate referral records for affiliates.

When referrals are recorded, the Reference column will be set to the Stripe Charge ID (transaction ID) and will link directly to your Stripe account's charge details page so you can easily review purchases.

NOTE: When using WP Simple Pay version 3.6.0 or higher, it is imperative that your webhook notification is setup in your Stripe account for AffiliateWP to track form payments and create referrals.  The webhook URL and link to access in your Stripe account can be viewed in Simple Pay > Settings in your WordPress admin.
