In order to become an affiliate, users need to be registered to your store.
The registration is done from “Affiliate Dashboard” page which is automatically created when you enable the plugin. The page contains the shortcode “[yith_wcaf_affiliate_dashboard]”.
The affiliation request can either be sent through the related registration form provided by the shortcode or automatically once any other registration form of the site is filled in.
In order to choose the solution that most suits your needs, click on the “Settings” tab of the settings panel of the plugin and select one of the two entries available in the “Registration form” option.
If you have selected the plugin registration form, the registration of the affiliates will be applied from the form of the “Affiliate Dashboard” page.
The user that makes an affiliation request is added to the affiliate user list in the Affiliates section of the plugin, with the default “Disabled” status. The administrator will have to activate the user as an affiliate with the related “Enable” option that you can find in bulk actions of the page. The admin will also have the option to Ban and Un-ban affiliates along the way.
Every new affiliation request will be notified next to the “Affiliates” label.
Administrators can add a new affiliate from the settings panel of the plugin at any time.
They can choose from existing users or the creation of a new user by clicking on the “Create New” button.
