After installing the Pushover Notifications add-on, the next step is to configure your settings.

2. Setting up Pushover Notifications

The Pushover Notifications add-on is simple to setup and only has a single option to be configured.

As soon as the plugin is activated, go to Affiliates » Settings and click on the Pushover tab:

Enter your Pushover Application Key and click Save Changes. Your Pushover Application Key can be found in your Pushover.net account. If you have not created any applications, click the Register an Application link from your Pushover.net dashboard:

Once you have entered your Application Key, your affiliates will have a new field available in the  Settings tab of the Affiliate Area that allows them to enter their User Key. Any affiliate that has entered their User Key and has new referral notifications enabled will automatically receive push notifications anytime a new referral with a status of Unpaid is awarded to their account.

Note: Affiliates will also need to have a Pushover account in order to obtain the User Key that’s requested in the Affiliate Area.
