One of the most common support questions we receive is “How can I add my own field/s to the affiliate registration form?”. Although we have a tutorial that shows how to do just that, we understand that it’s not for everyone.

Affiliate Forms For Ninja Forms is a new pro add-on that makes it exceptionally easy to create an affiliate registration form using the flexibility of the free Ninja Forms plugin.

Add any field to your affiliate registration form

Use any field in Ninja Forms to create your affiliate registration form

Use any of the default fields provided by Ninja Forms, or the four new field types we’ve added (see bottom left of image) to create your affiliate registration form. As you’d expect, you can drag and drop fields to re-order, make fields required, and label them however you’d like.

Only the email field is required to create your affiliate registration form. If no username field is added, the affiliate’s WordPress username is automatically created from their email address. If no password field is added, a password is automatically generated for the affiliate.

  1. Great to hear this has been released! Opens a lot of doors.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Hi, I tried adding this to my affiliateWP. I checked it in integrations and created a form using ninja forms. I set the form under the Ninja forms tab, in affiliateWP. When people sign up through the chosen form nothing happens – I don’t get any submissions in AffiliateWP.

    Is there something I am missing?
