Affiliate Registration Page

AffiliateWP is a powerful plugin that enables you to run a comprehensive affiliate marketing program directly from your WordPress site. One of its key features is the ability to create a dedicated registration form for new affiliates. This ensures a smooth and professional onboarding experience for potential affiliates.

In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to create an affiliate registration form and integrate it into your WordPress site.

Adding the Affiliate Registration Block

Before we get started, be sure to install and activate AffiliateWP on your WordPress site, and you’ve verified the license.

Once you’ve installed the plugin, navigate to the admin area of your WordPress website. From the dashboard, go to Pages and click on Add New Page. This will open a new page editor where you can start building your registration form.

Here, you can change the Form Title to something more specific if needed. You can also enable Show Placeholder Text to guide users on what information to enter. Additionally, there is an option to add a Redirect URL, which allows you to direct users to a specific page after they complete their registration.

These customization options enable you to tailor the registration form to fit your branding and user flow.

After configuring the block settings to your satisfaction, click Publish to make the page live on your website.

Adding a Password Field in Registration form

First, ensure that you have the affiliate registration form selected, as the fields are connected to the parent block.

Adding the Affiliate Registration Shortcode

If you are using the WordPress Classic editor or another page builder, you can still add the affiliate registration form to your site using shortcodes. Simply edit the page where you want to include the registration form and add the [affiliate_registration] shortcode in shortcode block:

This shortcode will insert the affiliate registration form at the specified location on your page. You can use this method on any WordPress page or post, providing flexibility for those using classic editors or page builders.

Selecting the Affiliate Registration Form

After creating the registration page, you need to configure AffiliateWP to use this page as the registration page for new affiliates. To do this, go to AffiliateWP » Settings » Affiliates in your WordPress dashboard.

In the settings, locate the Affiliate Registration page field. From the dropdown menu, select the registration form page that you created earlier. This step ensures that AffiliateWP directs potential affiliates to the correct registration form.
