Affiliate Area Overview

The affiliate area is where your affiliates log into their account and view their referral stats, generate affiliate links, and view their earnings. This documentation will guide you through setting up and utilizing the Affiliate Area in AffiliateWP.

Introduction to the Affiliate Area

AffiliateWP will automatically create a page called Affiliate Area when it is first installed on the site, and it will also populate this page with the Affiliate Area block. The affiliate area is where affiliates can manage their activities, track their performance, and access promotional materials.

Creating and Configuring the Affiliate Area Page

If AffiliateWP did not automatically create the page, or you simply wish to name it something different, create a standard Page in WordPress and place the Affiliate Area block in the main content.

To include the Affiliate Area block in a WordPress page, open the page you want to edit in the WordPress block editor. Click on the Plus (+) icon to add a new block. In the search bar, type “Affiliate Area” to find the Affiliate Area block.

Affiliate Area Block

Once you locate it, click on the Affiliate Area block to add it to your page. This action will embed the Affiliate Area functionalities into the selected page, providing a seamless experience for affiliates accessing their dashboard.

To select the page you wish to act as the Affiliate Area, go to AffiliateWP » Settings » Affiliates and choose your desired page from the drop-down menu.
