Great way to launch an affiliate program for your business

As a WordPress design and development agency this was a natural choice for us. We found it easy to install and integrate a custom affiliate dashboard for our partners. AffiliateWP has a lot of built in integrations for WordPress e-commerce solutions including WooCommerce. As an agency though selling services through a third party CRM (HubSpot) we didn't have an automated integration however the flexibility of the solution allowed us to build our own integration to make sure that inbound leads fed into our CRM are attributed to an AffiliateWP affiliate.

Pros

The best part of this solution is that it integrates directly with WordPress making it super easy to install a basic setup.

Cons

We'd like to see some more development of the External Referral Links add-on for the product that would allow lead capture forms on a separate site but report back to the site with AffiliateWP installed. The current workflow allows referral traffic to originate from Site B and be linked to Site A and include the necessary tracking from end to end. We'd like to see a way for transactions to occur on Site B and simply report via API back to Site A where AffiliateWP is installed. For example if Site B has a lead capture form on it and it's completed on Site B, keep the user on Site B but credit the affiliate on the AffiliateWP install on Site A.

Reasons for Choosing AffiliateWP

AffiliateWP seems to be actively developed and be the most popular of all the solutions out there. The add-on options allow us to install just the features we need and eliminate the ones we don't.

Become affiliate of success

After analyzing for almost a month different options for having my own affiliate program I decided that AffiliateWP was the best option in the market for people like me that had no idea about this kind of software. It was really reliefing that customer support held my back a number of times.

Pros

A really positive thing about this software was its seamless integration with woocommerce

Cons

Didn't liked that it wasn't even mentioned that more plugins would be needed in order to have an overall integration that included subdomains.

Reasons for Choosing AffiliateWP

Because although it was not cheap, its paid features outranked what their competitors offered.

THE BEST AFFILIATE MACHINE

I call this plugin a money-making machine because it makes some unimaginable sale for me with automation and less work. could be used with ease on WordPress.and of course the price is so affordable and it works straight to the point I need it always...

Pros

THE fact that this sofware can make our company website provide the affiliate link to visitors with no stress or daily distribution of affiliate products to subscribers is amazing with it auto-piloted referral property .also the sweet and easy compatibility with WordPress makes it easy to use and set up.

Cons

the plugin limits some marketing integrations. basically on the referral marketing where the site doing the referral's leads don't show on the main site with affiliate wp. i think there should a form implemented for less work.

AffiliateWP

It has been very good to get started. We have some modifications we want to make and got no response to what was necessary.

Pros

Ease of set up and use, features, add-ons

Cons

Difficulty in modifying. We want to make some adjustments and got no response to what to do.

Reasons for Choosing AffiliateWP

It was easy to start up and did most of what we needed at that point.

Hi Russ, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We noticed that you submitted a custom development request and from what you've said, you've had no response. While that does not excuse the fact that our 3rd party consultants did not respond, we are currently in the middle of sunsetting our consultants program and now directing all custom inquires to Codeable. Codeable is the most reliable platform of WordPress Experts and they are extremely familiar with AffiliateWP. Besides, the custom development requests, we welcome all questions and are available for assistance.

Versatile affiliate plugin

It has consistently allowed us to track our affiliate referrals for 2 plus years straight and has paid for itself many times over.

Pros

We used this plugin on our business website. It allowed us to easily provide referral links for our affiliates to share. We were up and running in a matter of minutes and it has been a solid plugin for 2 years plus. We are using it primarily for the referral link feature but there is so much more this plugin can do if your needs call for more. One of the top plugins of this kind. Can't go wrong here if you need a professional affiliate backend.

Cons

Your mileage may vary but for what we are using it for it works flawlessly. It would be nice if it could integrate better with form plugins like Gravity Foms but it's still an awesome plugin.

Reasons for Choosing AffiliateWP

AffiliateWP looked to us like the most mature and versatile product so that sold us.
