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.

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.

Everything we needed

It's very straightforward and easy to track everything from a management side. I'm very thankful for that. You can just set it up and forget about it. There are a ton of really cool features that our affiliates don't seem to be using, but the features they do use I feel like work great and for the price provide a great value.

Pros

We love that we can allow our affiliates to use their own links and coupon codes without paying extra. This software has a ton of great features, tracking, customization options and is fairly intuitive and easy to integrate with our website and existing software.

Cons

It's not the most glamourous of an interface, but I think those that are more versed in coding and developing could customize it to look beautiful.

Reasons for Choosing AffiliateWP

More flexibility to use all the features we needed at a competitive price

Reasons for Switching to AffiliateWP

For the price point that we wanted we couldn't use referral links and coupons. We LOVE that you integrate so well with woo-commerce to provide us with the ability to offer our affiliates multiple channels of referrals so our program can be simple for them as well.
