How it integrates with AffiliateWP

Affiliates on your website can promote any of your EDD download products by sharing their referral URL. When a customer clicks on an affiliate’s referral URL and purchases your download product, the affiliate who referred the customer is awarded a commission, also known as a referral.

Configure your downloads to have different referral rates

Otherwise known as “product specific rates”, this allows you to set a referral rate on a per-download basis. As an example, one of your downloads could be set to have a referral rate of 50%, much higher than the global referral rate. All of your other download products would continue to use the global referral rate. This is extremely useful if you’d like affiliates to concentrate more on specific products, which will earn them a higher commission.

Give your affiliates discount codes to share

Easy Digital Downloads lets you create discount codes which you can give to your customers. Taking this one step further, you can link a discount code with an affiliate, and then provide that affiliate with the discount code to share. Each time the discount code is used by a customer, the affiliate who is linked to the discount code will receive a commission. This means the affiliate doesn’t even need to share their referral URL! The affiliate’s commission will be calculated on the order total after the discount code has been applied.
