AffiliateWP version 2.9.6 has just dropped and it brings some incredible new features!
With this update, we’re releasing not 1, not 2, but 3 amazing features to:
- Help you get set up quicker (both your program as a whole and new features)
- Make your program even easier to manage
- Protect your program and set clear expectations for affiliates
- Spot important trends with your affiliate program
Let’s take a look at these new features and their benefits in more detail.
We’ve created the template, and all you’ve got to do is tell us your company name, and we’ll automatically fill in the blanks. It’s as easy as that.
Manage Addons with a Click from Your WordPress Admin
Version 2.9.6 has made a huge improvement to the way you manage your AffiliateWP addons.
In previous versions, you would go to the Downloads section of your AffiliateWP account to download an addon. Once it downloaded, you’d then manually upload the zip file through the WordPress’ Add Plugins page.
We’ve streamlined this entire process and you can now do everything from the Addons page.
All you have to do is click Install Addon and your chosen addon will download, install, and activate. Simply click the toggle button again, and you can deactivate the addon.
This makes it even easier for you to manage your affiliate program and upgrade your capabilities.
Track Affiliate Program Performance with Email Summaries
We want to make it as easy as possible to keep track of your affiliate program’s performance.
Yes, you’ve got access to real-time analytics, but sometimes what you want is a convenient snapshot.
With version 2.9.6, we’re going to give you just that thanks to Email Summaries.
You’ll receive emails with the most important details about your program’s performance. See metrics for revenue (for supported integrations), new affiliates, unpaid earnings, and paid earnings for the past 30-days, ensuring you’ve always got a clear picture of what’s going on.
We know you’ve got tons of tasks to take care of, so we want to free up time by giving you easy access to the information you need.
Just update to version 2.9.6, sit back, relax, and you’ll receive summaries to your inbox.

Not using AffiliateWP yet?
Is the manage addon screen just a quick way to manage plugins installed on WordPress or how does that work? Also, how does that work for multisite?
Hey Nick! The Addons screen is solely for managing AffiliateWP addons. If you have a Personal or Plus license you can download/install/activate any Official Free addon. If you have a Professional license you’ll also be able to download/install/activate Pro addons.
For multisite, sub-sites can have different addons active as you’d expect. Once an addon is installed and activated on sub-site A, the addon is then available on sub-site B (since they share the plugins). So if you then visited the Addons screen on sub-site B, you’ll see the addon is “Inactive” (vs Not Installed) because the plugin now exists.
Hope that helps!
Does this release fix the PHP 8 errors?
This release didn’t fix anything PHP 8 related. We are aware of some notices/warnings with PHP 8 and these will be addressed in an upcoming release. Thanks!
