— Accurate Commission Tracking —

  • Affiliates can see the total commission earned via their coupon, and for each individual order in the recent orders list.

  • There are 3 types of commission amounts, including fixed commission “per product”, “per order”, and a “percentage” of the total order. You can even set all 3 for more flexible commission calculations!

— Recent Orders List —

FAQ

What is a “coupon-based” affiliate program?

Coupon Affiliates enhances affiliate marketing by integrating coupons as a core feature. Unlike traditional affiliate systems that rely primarily on referral links, this plugin allows affiliates to share their unique coupon codes. These codes not only track sales for commission purposes but also offer customers immediate discounts or special offers, enriching the purchasing experience. However, the Coupon Affiliates system still maintains the flexibility of referral links; affiliates can share URLs that automatically apply their coupon at checkout, and even if a coupon isnt used, you can still make the link alone track referrals, ensuring affiliates receive credit for every sale referred​​.

Will there be more features added in the future?

Yes! New features are added frequently, most of which are based on feedback. So if you have any suggestions to help improve the coupon affiliates plugin, please get in touch!

Will this work with my existing coupons and orders?

Yes, once you install the plugin it will look back at the full order history for each coupon, even those created before the installation, and display the stats for these on the coupon affiliate dashboard too.

How do the affiliate referral URLs work?

A referral URL is automatically generated for the affiliate, and can be found on their dashboard. This link can then be shared by the affiliate. Anyone that visits the website using that link, will have the coupon code automatically applied to their account on checkout. Clicks are also tracked, and any sales made via the coupon are tracked as conversions.

Can I assign affiliate users to coupons?

Yes, you can assign affiliate users to coupons, which will give them direct access to their affiliates dashboard page, without needing to use a unique link. Click here to learn more.

What kind of coupon usage statistics are shown?

On the coupon affiliate dashboard, you (and your affiliates) will be able to see a variety of statistics including total uses, discount type, orders total, amount saved, commission earned, and more. You will also be able to see a recent order table (with general info such as date, order total, discount, products, commission etc), and with the pro version you can see a monthly orders/commission summary table for the past 12 months.

GDPR & Privacy

All data used and created by the Coupon Affiliates plugin is stored on your own website. We don’t track or collect ANY of your affiliate program data ourselves. You can optionally opt-in to share some basic usage data which helps us with providing support, fixing bugs, and improving the plugin, and can also opt-out at any time.

Do you provide support?

Yes. If you need any help setting up the affiliate plugin, please free to get in touch and we’ll be happy to help!

How can I report issues/bugs with the plugin?

You can report feature bugs by creating a support ticket. Please provide as much information as possible to make it easier for us to find a solution for you.

How can I report security bugs?

You can report security bugs through the Patchstack Vulnerability Disclosure Program. The Patchstack team help validate, triage and handle any security vulnerabilities. Report a security vulnerability.

I can’t say much about how the plugin works as I’m a developer and this is installed on a client’s site, though they do seem to be happy with it! What I can say is that it’s incredibly rare to see such engaged and competent support for WordPress plugins. We ran into an issue on the backend and Elliot was responsive and worked hard to get it fixed, even with multiple emails back and forth the issue was fixed within 24 hours. Cannot emphasize how rare this is and how much it is appreciated as a developer supporting clients. Thank you!!!

I sent an email request for a bug/conflicting error and Elliot spent almost, if not 4 hours finding it, and fixing it, which he did Amazing support and communicaiton, he explained what the problem was, and fixed it 5/5 Stars! Thank you Elliot

Now and then you come across plugin developers that are clearly passionate about what they do and care about the people they are helping. Elliot is definitely one of those developers. For our use case, Coupon Affiliates has given us exactly what we needed. The interface is nice and clear and the customisation options have allowed us to tailor this to our processes. The support is amazing!

Easy enough to use. Setup is straightforward and quick. Dashboard for affiliates is actually designed well and needed minimal css tweaking. Needs some tweaks. Example, the dashboard shows the promo code at top vs the affiliates name. Not sure what is up with that, but just an example of tweaks needed.

I usually do not spend time to write reviews. But here I do it for this plugin. The features are indeed very good, even in the free version. Most importantly, the technical support is super reactive and very helpful. Thanks and keep the good work 🙂 Benoît
