Give affiliates a premium experience with the new Affiliate Portal
🎉 We have released the Affiliate Portal pro add-on!
The Affiliate Portal
The Affiliate Portal is an alternative to AffiliateWP’s standard Affiliate Area. Instead of being an area within the page on your site, the portal is a dedicated full-screen experience for your affiliates.
🚌 Let us show you around!
The Dashboard is an entirely new page for affiliates. Once logged in, they’re shown key performance metrics and can quickly access other pages of the portal to see the bigger picture.
Previously, affiliates needed to highlight referral links and manually copy them to the clipboard. Now they can copy any referral link with one satisfying click.
Generating and previewing referral links is also more intuitive. Changing any input field updates the Generated referral URL automatically. In other words, no more clicking a clunky button for every new preview!
And finally, the sharing options are always visible, allowing for quicker sharing. As a result, you no longer need the Affiliate Dashboard Sharing add-on.
Referrals, Visits & Payouts
The Referrals, Visits and Payouts pages now have sortable table columns. We’ve also added color-coded labels and icons, making statuses clearer.
The portal makes good use of the generous screen real estate. Thanks to the all-new grid design, more creatives can fit on-screen.
Clicking a creative will show its true preview, along with its description and HTML code.
Finally, we’d like to show you the Settings page. It provides beautiful form styling and naturally integrates with the Payouts Service.
Enhanced with AffiliateWP add-ons
As you would expect, all your favorite AffiliateWP add-ons that interact with the standard Affiliate Area also work with the Affiliate Portal. We have outlined two exceptions in our documentation.
Compatible pro add-ons:
- Affiliate Landing Pages
- Custom Affiliate Slugs
- Direct Link Tracking
- Pushover Notifications
- Lifetime Commissions
Compatible official-free add-ons:
- Store Credit
- Order Details for Affiliates
Optimized for your affiliates
Built for speed
For on-the-go affiliates
Affiliates can access the portal wherever they are. The responsive design ensures it can be comfortably viewed on phones, tablets and desktop computers.

Absolutely brilliant – customising the affiliate portal was always difficult, this just makes it slick and look extremely professional. Thanks AffiliateWP!
Thanks for the kind words Mike!
Looks great, thanks! I just installed it on a clients english site. Is there German translation ready? I have a German client site that need the upgraded portal.
Love this feature! We were struglling with the customization a lot and believed a visual improvement would help us out a lot!
We would love to know if this addon also works with the official free addon “Affiliate Area Tabs” in which you are able to customize the tabs and add custom pages too.
Thanks in advance!
Hello Jair. Great! We are glad the plugin will help you. We’ve been hearing similarly from others.
I’m bummed to say it, but the Affiliate Portal does not support ‘Affiliate Area Tabs’. This is because that plugin works with your WordPress theme, whereas the Portal “bypasses” your theme to give your affiliates these improved visuals.
We are looking into ways to bring similar functionality to the Portal. We don’t have a timeline yet. We wanted to get this new Portal experience out for your affiliates as soon as we could. I hope I’ll be blogging about that feature soon.
Would it also not be possible to just be able to add custom menu items and link to custom pages with links to it in a new tab. We offer our affiliates extra materials, news updates, trainings etc.
Yes, it’s now possible to add custom menu links which link to new pages in a new tab 🙂
What options do you provide so O don’t need to use the “payouts service” and pay an additional 3% “service fee”?
See this doc article which covers the various ways to pay affiliates: https://docs.affiliatewp.com/article/67-paying-your-affiliates
Really a very nice new design. But i found a bug:
At the moment it’s not compatible with Payout Statement Extension
But maybe it’s not an bug from the Dashboard, but from the Extension.
The portal is very different to the Affiliate Area so third-party developers will need to update their add-ons to add support for it. We’ll be publishing some developer-focused documentation very soon and providing examples on how they can integrate.
Its possible to redirect the “Back to site” button?
It only links to the home URL so not possible sorry. Where did you want to redirect affiliates to?
To the “my-account” Page for example.
Love the new portal, anyway you guys can make some CSS tweaks for sites with long titles? Screenshot https://share.getcloudapp.com/nOuor5pg
Or is it possible that we can override styles or templates to make tweaks?
Thanks for the screenshot! We’ll see if we can make the portal better accommodate longer site titles.
It’s not possible to override styles (other CSS is blocked to avoid styling conflicts) and there are no template files to edit sorry.
Do you have a “tiered” system for affiliates? Say, if in tier 1 the affiliate gets 20%, in tier 2 they get 30%, but in order to enter tier 2, they need to refer for x amount per month, year, etc.
Found the “Tiered Affiliate Rates” add-on. However, can I set a timeframe & amount of sales they need to make the referrals in, so they can keep the tiered rate?
Hi, How can I hide the visits and creatives on Affiliate portal? Thanks!
It’s not possible to hide pages within the portal. At this point it’s only possible with the standard Affiliate Area.
After installation of this plugin I got following error.
Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function allow_affiliate_slugs() on null in ………/wp-content/plugins/affiliatewp-affiliate-portal/includes/integrations/class-custom-affiliate-slugs.php:54
What could be the possible reasons.
Hello, could you please contact our support team? They’ll be able to assist with the error and help you get it resolved: https://affiliatewp.com/support/.
When my affiliates attempt to click the links on the side panel, they are redirected stating the page doesn’t exist. Are there short codes that I can use to create the necessary pages for my affiliates?
You might just need to flush your permalinks by visiting Settings > Permalinks in wp-admin. If that doesn’t solve the broken links issue and you require additional assistance, please contact our support team.
Where do the affiliates sign in? I’m not interested in giving them access to wordpress. I was looking for a shortcode so I can make my own affiliate login screen…
Affiliates can log in wherever you decide to add the login form. Usually that’s with the affiliate area shortcode but you can also use the affiliate login shortcode anywhere on your site. We also have the affiliate area block and affiliate login block for use within the WordPress editor.
Can this new portal allow us to put creatives for 30 different campaigns as separate category listings? We have the basic program that you offer but are looking for ways for us to have 30 categories, which are clickable to see the set of creative for each category. Is that possible with the basic package? Do we need to buy this portal add-on to have categories?
How can we add a logo or branding to this affiliate area?
Hey Jason! In the Affiliate Portal’s settings there’s an option to upload an image for the logo.
Is there an option to add more sharing options? Not just Facebook, Email and Twitter, but also WhatsApp, Instagram and TikTok. That would be very useful.
Hey Assaf! There isn’t an option to add anymore sharing options other than what’s there now. I’ll log your feature request, thanks!
Hi! For the Creatives section, is there a way for affiliates to download the images of the creatives vs. just having the HTML code?
Yes, an affiliate can right-click on the preview image to download the image.
