YITH Affiliates allows you to set up an affiliation programme on your site, so your users can promote your store and earn a commission on each sale made through their referral link.
The integration with YITH PayPal Payouts for WooCommerce allows you to pay all the commissions that are generated by your affiliates through PayPal.
First of all, make sure the plugin is installed and activated. Now enable this gateway from YITH > Affiliates > General options > Commissions & Payments > Payment gateways.
Whenever an affiliate drives a sale to your shop, you will see the list of commissions in YITH > Affiliates > Commissions > Commissions List.
You will be able to see this payment gateway as a payment option for on the Commissions page, both in the bulk actions and in every single commission.
Based on the payment settings, the payment will be either processed automatically (please, see this page) or manually.
A payment record will be created in the Commissions Payments tab. The payment will be temporarily set as Pending and the commissions as Pending payment. Once PayPal completes and confirms the payment, it will be automatically set to Completed and the commissions as Paid.
Affiliate payments in Payouts list
Once the payment is done, you will also be able to see this payment in your Payouts List. It will be easy to spot the payment of affiliate commission, as they are listed as Affiliate Payment for (followed by the affiliate payment ID) and will take on the affiliate status in the PayOut Mode column.
