Referral Types

As of version 2.2 of AffiliateWP, referral types were introduced. There are three possible values that can be assigned:

  • Sale - This is the default referral type that has been generated for a typical sale. 
  • Opt-In - This referral type is automatically assigned with the [opt_in] shortcode. When placed on a page, the shortcode displays an opt-in form that integrates with MailChimp, ActiveCampaign, or ConvertKit. The opt-in referral type can also be assigned to any of the referrals created from the form integrations supported.  
  • Lead - This referral type can be assigned to any of the referrals created from form submissions for lead generation.
