Installing AffiliateWP

When you purchased AffiliateWP you were given a download link on both the purchase confirmation page, and in your purchase receipt email. Download AffiliateWP by clicking on either of these 2 links. You will be given a .zip file which you will upload to WordPress in one of two ways, which are noted below.

From the WordPress admin dashboard

1
In your WordPress admin, go to Plugins → Add New
2
Click Upload Plugin
3
Click Browse and select the zip file that you downloaded when you purchased AffiliateWP
4
Click Install Now
5
If successful, click Activate Plugin to activate it, or Return to Plugin Installer for further actions.

By FTP (File Transfer Protocol)

1
Extract the .zip file you received when you purchased AffiliateWP. This is usually done by right-clicking on the .zip file and selecting "extract" or similar
2
Log in to your site via FTP and navigate to the wp-content/plugins folder
3
Upload the extracted folder from step 1 into the plugins folder
4
In your WordPress admin, go to Plugins
5
Find AffiliateWP and click activate

Note: If unfamiliar with how to use FTP, there are many resources available that provide guides on how to get set up. Here's one we recommend.
